x2

I've gone up against this video at least two times last year and lost. Probably'll be going for some rematches with it this year...

The group dynamic is really strong here. It creates a moving wave of laughter and resentment.

Between this, your Takeout, and Zarx's 58008 I don't know what to pick - it was definitely a good year for comedy.

Although I originally conceived this as a drama, somehow it's consistently won as a comedy. So go figure.



I really like this one---the reaction shots always make me giggle.



I've gotta give props to my girl Driftroot...I love this vid. My favourite part is the "...cats and dogs, living together!" gag at the end. :D

It absolutely works with the audience component. Vlad showed this at Anime Evolution last year, and I know our group was in tears by the end of it. Pant-wettingly funny when everybody's having synchronized hysterics.

I have to admit, however, that I got more amusement out of the whole build-up to Serenade (it was all hush hush, in a "DOKOOL IS GOING TO SCREW WITH YOU GUYS BIG TIME" sort of way, which appropriately raised expectations and concern) and dokool & Co.'s undisguised glee at Anime Boston where Serenade premiered. It wasn't the AMV I was watching and laughing at so much as them and the audience. :rofl:

You're right, I got the same thing too. Not sure what's up with that. I dl'd it a couple of months ago and it was fine. Hrm.

I've also been getting a bunch of 404 - File Not Found errors today. Should we be reporting all these somewhere or is it generally accepted that there's still something weird going on with the server - above and beyond uploads not working - and so we shouldn't mention the problems?

It appears to be a know issue, I think, since this is what dero said here:

Some videos are still broken; they didn't fit on the USB drive used to transfer the data. They will be re-uploaded from the backup server starting Monday.

Once that is done, then I can re-enable uploads. So uploads should be back late next week (depends on how long that transfer takes).

We now have 6TB of free disk space, so this should last us a long while. (Actually, I'll be moving ~1TB vids off Nago onto Kero to make room for streaming, so, still 5TB)

:up: my vote goes for this one as well.

I have a pretty funneh story with this amv, i've put it to download out of a recomendation of a friend (didn't knew what it was about, he only said it was funneh) and well, my gf just came over and i decided to watch the vid with her...well...try to guess the rest..
