I'm not sure if it was written in the actual contest... but I noticed you put one of my videos in the name of balgreya and the other knage.

Honestly i didn't expected that THIS vid would get farther than the other two i sent. Part of the fun of contests, i suppose ! Part of the win comes to the other editors on this as well: Cecco, Mystyk and Kazuko.

Good job to other participants. glad to hear it was a success.

Congrats to the winners! Zomg I can't believe I won best comedy XD. I was honestly unsure how that vid would do since comedy isnt really my forte XD. It would have been cool to see people reactions to it. Again congrats to the other winners and to all those who participated!

I would love to see the reactions of those who watched my video. I'm sure everyone who submitted their videos would like to do the same. My video is 'Rainbow Dash and Pikachu crossover'.

One of the viewers posted on Facebook about this but they said something that I hadn't thought about.
The same anime may have been used but the authors were able to tell two very different stories with it.
They were impressed with the flexibility you all exercised with that.
Hell, nekokitkat used AoT to create the more comedic scenes in her entry.
Yeah, AoT created an unintended theme but no one was complaining about it being overused. ;)

In the beginning, there were a lot of "awww"s and gasps when the tombstone was shown and more "awwww"s when Rainbow Dash was mourning at graveside.
They got quiet to see where things would go.
There were intermittent giggles at a few of the scenes.
Then, when Pikachu was on life support, there were "oh no"s happening and "nooooo" when the life meter reached zero, followed by distressed reactions at the return of the tombstone.
At the end, there wasn't as much applause (even though there was a lot) because people had become emotional.
Reactions were mixed but all were favorable.

That sounds pretty cool. It was weird, but someone commented on my video and said she was head banging and air guitaring to my video while hearing it. Thas was a really different comment from others.

Okay, I can imagine what that sounds like. I was expecting the audience would be would be saying, "Aww", but I didn't think that the audience would be quiet at some points in the video. I'll be looking forward to watching the video of the award, and I hope I get to see my video being played. Can you tell me when the 'Award Show' video will be posted? Thanks a bunch. I hope anyone who entered their videos would like to see their videos and hear the reactions of the audience who watched them.
