For this I think it would probably be best to go to cons and interview them there because you'll get more out if it if you do so. There are a lot of people who don't think it's reasonable to do it online and prefer in person.

Hi, everyone.

I am sorry that you all are displeased with the article. That was not my original intent. I just hope that next time I can do better. Thank you for your comments, and I sincerely apologize about this.
I understand you all's suggestions, which I will consider should I get this kind of topic again (although judging by the responses, I'm not so sure about that). But some were simply not feasible in the time I was given. A majority of us only get so much time to write these, and often have to make due with what we have at hand. The internet was my only option, and the only con that was going to be happening near me anytime soon is next month. My editors would not wait that long for something.
I can speak about this all day, but it will not cure the dissatisfaction among all of you. All I can do is apologize. I only had 700 words' allowance, and I would agree with you that it is not enough, but I have to do what my editors tell me. I will try my best to do a rewrite in the future.
Thanks again for everyone's participation.

For whatever it's worth, I'm looking at the other articles posted on the site and it's cool that you're at least trying to write about an interesting topic that requires research instead of just making another listicle ("15 Cutest Anime Baby Boys and Girls," "20 Angry Anime Characters," "Top 15 Anime Girls with Green Hair on MAL," etc). Much more challenging, and certainly more of a learning experience whether you're an experienced writer or a total beginner.

AMV creators isn't correct.
AMV Editor is also 'just not right!

What you are looking for and have totally missed are the Story Tellers in All Of Us.

Some copy ideas while others draw them. The question missed is quite often; How Much Visual Distortion are we allowing others to absorb in order to get our point across.
1) if driving at night, do we really need to see the reflective covering on a sight or are we looking for just that signs contents?
2) in Radio, are we listening for everything or maybe just the music?
3) on TV, are we looking for our characters or a commercial about " the cost of " something?

AMVs and Editing are often confused about each others combinations because they are not grasping the most basic concept of videos - it's story.

I feel like the topic is nice for my current homework!(aka insightful article) Thought i guess i would rather stick to specific genre ,or mby evolution of stuff. all of it is too much :P Wonder if there are any more public texts like that old Ian one on hobby? It kinda makes look like everything only happened in 'murica But guess restricting to region is ok p: .
Still better than that MMO.
