"An idea has no worth at all without believable characters to implement it; a plot without characters is like a tennis court without players. Daffy Duck is to a Buck Rogers story what John McEnroe was to tennis. Personality! That is the key, the drum, the fife. Forget the plot!"
—Chuck Jones (Academy Award Winning Director of Looney Toons)
For round 2, you will be choosing a character trope that is a recurring element in anime and editing a video inspired by it. A list of many popular character tropes can be found here: http://i.imgur.com/0mLMTNf.jpg But this is by no means a definitive or comprehensive list. There are tons of character tropes in anime, and you are free to choose one that is not listed. But please note that if you are unable to describe your character trope in a short phrase or just a few words, it may not be a good one to choose for this theme. Since this should be the core concept of your video, the judges should be able to identify it without a lengthy explanation.
If you are having trouble viewing the list of tropes, it can also be seen here:

Round 2 Deadline:
Sunday, July 19th @ 11:59PM EST
Submitting Your Video:
When finished, please upload your video to a reputable file sharing service and send the download link to me via a private message here on animemusicvideos.org. The body of your message should also include the name of the character trope that your video represents. Google Drive and Dropbox are the preferred methods of uploading your video, but please ensure that the URL you send is a “shared” or “public” link. Sendspace is not recommended due to a daily download limit that it imposes. Note: YouTube or ”streaming only” links will not be accepted. You do not have to wait until the final day to submit your video. You are also free to share and upload your videos before the deadline. Just be aware that doing so may help your opponents. If you finish early and feel that your video does not need anymore tweaking, you may submit it at any time before Sunday, July 19th @ 11:59PM EST. At the end of each round, all the submitted videos will be made available to the public to stream on Google drive. If you would like the download option to be disabled on your video and to only allow it to be streamed, please add this request to the body of your submission message. By default, all videos will be made available for download unless the editor specifically requests that it doesn't. Editors also have the option to request that one of their videos be completely unavailable to the public, and only the judges will be able to view it. This option is only available during the preliminary rounds, can only be used once, and can not be changed to a different video (even if the editor chooses to remove the restriction on the previous one).
