"Just Funkin' Dandy" by Shin

Anime: Space Dandy

NOTES:
- The Audience votes for Romance/Sentimental were so close we could not determine a winner. We looked at the judging results to use as a tie breaker and they were also tied! So we declared it a tie! First tie ever in SakuraCon's AMV Contest
- As for "Just Funkin' Dandy", as I said at the awards ceremony (more or less):
"Every so often there comes a video that perfect captures the passion and hard work of the editor who made it in many respects. It is technically sound, it has an artistic flair, it catches the eyes of the judges and it wins over the audience. "Just Funkin' Dandy" is such a video a it deserves all the awards it has won. We thank Shin for inspiring us editors with this video..."

The freshness rule has not changed from last year..... Basically I consider December and a bit write off for AMVs so hence the date...
