For what it's worth, you had my vote in Drama (or would have if I remembered to turn in my ballot :roll: ). You got hosed, IMHO.

I plan on writing a very wordy review/critique of the contest to kill time before my flight, I'll probably post it when I get back to Tokyo in a day. Overall, this has to be the first contest where I'm satisfied with almost all of the winners in a looooong time (despite some hit or miss quality of the contest itself). So, congrats to everyone who won, almost everyone who made the finals, and see y'all in 11 months :up:

It seems Bashar used Kirikirimai, which makes his AMV my most anticipated evar.

Well...I half-guessed right *was betting on 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' to take Best Fun/Upbeat/Other*

Although taking best in show beats the ever-loving Hell out of that...it definitely earned it.

Congrats to all the winners...

...now if you'll excuse me, I have some downloading to do...

Congrats to all the winners. I would like to give a special one to Bashar, because for once in these passed three years of Anime Boston i have been to, I was actually blown away by a video. Props to you. :up:

Oh, and thanks a bunch too, I cannot get that song out of my head now. Not that it is a bad thing, but hey.

kirikirimai is definitely stuck in my head since the con... that says something.

i run an anime club here at Western New England College, and i cant wait to show my members Alberto Gonzales's videos.

"Something Wicked This Way Comes" was just sooo damn good, its been a while since ive been blown away like that.

moonnites....perfectly used.
