So it turns out that our slate of non-finalists clocks in at just over 3 hours this year, which means we can afford to play everyone's videos both on Friday and on Saturday. As usual, we'll be going in alphabetical order by video title, but one peculiarity this year is that the Saturday non-finalists will be split into morning and afternoon sessions (as I mentioned in my e-mail from May 16). We did get one request for a video to be played in the Saturday morning block, but as it turns out, that's where it fell in the alphabetical order anyway. So here is the play order for Saturday (Friday is the same but all in one big 3-hour block):

Spoiler :
Angel of Death
Banri's Still Got It
Black Rover
Bullet From Uranus
Dancing With The Moonlight
Didney's Pingoos

Tamako Lives Forever
The Chilling Adventures of Kyouka Izumi
The Final Dance

The Greatest Show
The Human Condition Part 1
The Human Condition Part 3

Once again, the non-finalist blocks will all be shown in our AMV Theatre (room 318), at these times:

Friday, 3:15 - 6:15 P.M.
Saturday, 10:00 - 11:30 A.M.
Saturday, 2:30 - 4:00 P.M.

Stay tuned for more updates about all our other exciting new AMV events!

Just because I'm in a state of last-minute frazzle doesn't mean I can't give you that additional update I promised. So here it is, all the other AMV events at AnimeNEXT 2019 that have nothing to do with the contest! Listed in chronological order.

Awesome Mix, Vol. 3: AMV Edition (Friday, 11:30A - 12:30P, AMV Theatre 318)
If Star-Lord watched anime music videos, these would be his favorites. This playlist is full of hidden gems from the late 70s and early 80s. Break out your Walkman and join us!

The Cure for the Common AMV (Friday, 12:45P - 1:45P, AMV Theatre 318)
Tired of the “same old, same old” in anime music videos? Then this is the panel for you, as Scintilla and Mango share some recent videos that show that the AMV community is still pushing the envelope with fresh concepts every year.

15 Years in (AMV) Hell (Friday, 2:00P - 3:00P, AMV Theatre 318)
Welcome to Hell! The original AMV Hell spawned a whole new genre, busting guts and splitting sides of anime fans everywhere. We're here to show off some of the best of the genre from the past 15 years, for an hour of comedy distilled to dangerous concentrations.

AMV Sing-Along AFTER DARK (Friday, 9:45P - 10:45P, AMV Theatre 318)
Can't get enough of AMV sing-alongs, but wish they were a little less tame? You're in luck! The After Dark playlist contains videos that would be rated PG-13 or higher for profanity and violence, for fans who like it that way (you know who you are).

The AMV Panel (There Is No Other) (Saturday, 4:15P - 5:15P, AMV Theatre 318)
Scintilla, Cyanna, MadMegatax, and Mango will be on hand to answer all of YOUR questions about the art of Anime Music Videos. We'll discuss the creative process, the state of the AMV community in 2019, and whatever else you've always wanted to know about AMVs.

The Magical Girl Hour (Saturday, 5:30P - 6:30P, AMV Theatre 318)
From Sailor Moon to Madoka Magica, come join us for some amazing AMVs from some well-loved Magical Girl shows. For the Future of the Earth, Stop On By ~nya!

Romance AMVs (Saturday, 6:45P - 7:45P, AMV Theatre 318)
Love (and heartbreak) is in the air! Join Mango for an hour of AMVs that are sure to make your heart go doki-doki.

Dance Under the AMVs (Saturday, 10:00P - 12:00A, Panel Room 304)
From DNCE to YMCA, we're playing all your favorites, in this two-hour block free of chairs and full of upbeat AMVs that just make you want to dance. Come on out and show us your hottest moves!

Chocolate Frosted Nostalgia Bombs (Sunday, 10:15A - 11:15A, AMV Theatre 318)
An hour of love letters to the fandom in AMV form, full of videos that just put a smile on your face. Put on your rose-colored glasses and let the simpler, happier times roll!

AMV Sing-Along! (Sunday, 1:45P - 2:45P, AMV Theatre 318)
Enjoy watching great videos and singing? Come join us in a group sing-along! An hour of anime music videos with catchy, singable music, all with karaoke-style captions.

Anyone who's not coming to AnimeNEXT is really missing out on some good stuff. This was the most packed Trailer/Parody category I've seen yet, and Fun/Upbeat was also noticeably strong this year. Perhaps more significantly, we now have one year of running a dedicated AMV Theatre under our belts, with brand-new AMV programming that drew well enough to justify the space, and ideas for still more new programming blocks yet. Now if only we could find more guest panelists and staff... (hint, hint...)

A big thank you to everyone, contestants and audience alike, who continue to support our contest and the whole AnimeNEXT AMV department! You're the reason we've grown into a full programming track in the first place, and we could never do it without you.
