I'm currently working on my new vid and I hope to finish it on time so that I will be able to send it to the contest.

And WOW! You are in Akihabara!!! Congrats!
If there's anything related to Final Fantasy series I'll do everything to win that prize :ying:

I have just loaded up on some killer Blu-Rays and a couple DVDs as prizes.
Fresh series; this is stuff that was just torrenting within the past few months.

And a couple older titles too, and a Senjougahara figurine and another smaller Kos-Mos 4 (Xenosaga)

Schick is still doing the "buy a 5-blade razor, get a mecha figurine or Eva pilot as your razor stand..."
sales campaign, with the most WRONG smile on Gendo Ikari, and Ayanami is all Elektra complex over him:

Asuka has the old Irish Spring thing going: "Manly yes, but I like it too..."

An Ayanami Rei-zor stand:

This site has the commercials:

THERE WILL BE A KILLER RETRO PRIZE THIS YEAR ....

And don't forget your chibi-eva key chains:

Not sure how long food will last, but I always liked the freeze dried anime-themed food items they had when I stay in Japan. Angel Beats Curry, Madoka flavored tea bags, etc. Or the usual anime-themed Maid cookies are real nice. You can find them in Gamers or Animate.

Special flavored Kit-Kats are a Japanese cultural novelty, and easy to take a box full back.

Or here at Tokyo Central station:

** These are shelf-stable food items which will remain fresh for months. They are now refrigerated for maximum freshness and will be awarded at Kumoricon or shipped to US winners. (I don't want tor try to get food item through international customs.)

The convention usually hands me MORE media so there will be even MORE prises to choose from!!

Yes you can! We have not yet run a "Horror" category (but I am likely to try one sometime soon...)

For this year it could run in 'Intensity' for its pacing and solid, driving, music. Your competition in 'Intensity' would be other works that are just as intense, but may tell a more clear, engaging, and cogent storyline: such as where the viewer gets to really meet an 'A' then a 'B' in opposition to 'A' and we understand why 'A' and 'B' are out there kicking ass or wrecking half of Tokyo in their mecha, and we really WANT one of them to WIN, and we want to feel GOOD when the other guy FAILS. Add a countdown timer to save the world ....
And there are also other strategies for making an AMV intense and you would competing against those other formats and story structures as well...

We can easily handle some blood splatters here and there; while I do not participate in the judges' panel, and they are a different gang each year, the last time the blood-n-gore questions came up they either (a) drew the line at when identifiable bits of organs or guts are clearly depicted, (what, Elfin Lied?) and some members were a bit squeamish about eye trauma (darts, daggers, syringes, etc,) but also (b) blades are as culturally significant to Japan as are firearms in the US, and the long history of chanbara, jidaigekki, and general martial arts flicks have had some previous panels make allowance for dismemberment and decapitations, especially in matters of justice or corporal or capital sentences. You can lop a traitor's head off, especially if your AMV story sets things up so that the audience loves it because he or she damn well deserved it.

I would be happy to throw this at the judges next month if you want to send me a d/l link.
Be sure to include all the other information (music, etc.)

Your ONE f-bomb at the end is permissible, too.
