I'd have been okay with making it into Overload.
Maybe next time I'll make sure I turn in my best effort. :P

Congrats to the finalist. Didn't know this contest was so popular. 260 + entries wow.

I'll be ready for next years contest. Good luck to everyone in the finals.

I guess I can find some solace that 1 of my videos making overflow... I also can't remember many contests that allow two entries by one creator in a single category. Then again much like the 2 strong Kill La Kill action videos at MTAC which I ran they might cancel each other out by splitting the vote.

Congrats to the finalists...

I'm honored that Dissociation made it to finals in such a competitive category.

Congrats to all who made finalists and overflow! There are some serious heavy hitters here, as is usual for NDK :)

I'm just happy I get to be in a contest where Sekai is also competing since my video was inspired by Sekai :D
Congrats to all the finalists! |:>

Well even if it's in overload I'm still honored to have my video shown at NDK. And it's certainly an improvement from last year!
And the overload is full of a lot of really great videos, so it's exciting to be part of the same playlist as them.

Also, 256 videos, and the finalist list posted less than a week after the deadline. That is some impressive efficiency, so thank you for that.

So happy I made it to category X! Funny that 4 out of 5 vids there are from Akross xD. Almost like American voting for AkrossCon 2013 + glorious irradin's video ;) Good luck everyone!

Just a little note that there were a couple videos that were originally going to be put into Overload but we actually held back on doing so to play them at different AMV events. We don't like to play the same videos multiple times during a con since the attendees at both the panels and the contest usually line up for well over an hour before the event, so playing the same videos isn't only lazy on our part but it's kind of disrespectful to their dedication. All AMV events at NDK are always filled to max capacity and we'll release lists of videos played at other panels/events on the official ndk forum. Kisanzi and myself normally snag a couple videos from overload each year so we can either play them at the Iron Chef event or talk about them a bit at one of our other panels if we personally enjoy them.

For reference, this was a Sunday panel a couple years ago, a few hours before the con officially ended. Normally last minute panels are dead since everyone is leaving/has left the hotel but the people that come to the AMV events are hardcore fans and again, lined up an hour early just to get a spot.
So yeah, even if your video isn't in Overload or the contest there are still quite a few AMVs that we plan on playing to packed rooms of adoring fans at some point in time.


We sincerely appreciate each and every person that supports the event. You guys are all phenomenal. :bear:

Even though I didn't make it in, I was happy when I received a badge in the mail for seating I think it was? I am unable to make it to Colorado but I am going to treasure that little badge because I did have fun making my entry and look forward to entering next year. I will be looking up those finalists *.*

I hope someday I can attend Nan Desu Kan, because it seems so fun!

I was kind of surprised to receive the badge in the mail too. It's been a rough road back for me into making AMV's but I'm learning a whole bunch more new stuff and I plan on submitting next year too. Who knows maybe if I have the money maybe I can fly out to Colorado for a week. Come to the con and visit my uncle out there too. Unfortunately I will not be able to make it out there since I live on the east coast.

Good luck to everyone and good luck to you guys running a successful event. Hope it goes well for you guys.
