Have Another AMV

Sorry all, still very strapped for time while I work on the book and about fifteen billion other things. Here’s another of my old favorites from the realm of AMVs. This is actually one of the first AMVs I ever saw, part of a batch a friend gave me. He used this one to attempt to persuade me to watch Kodomo no Omocha, a.k.a. Kodocha or Child’s Toy. His main point in the anime’s favor was that nothing in the video is sped up; the main character really is that absurdly energetic.

If you’ve never seen it, it’s a good show, but it just sort of stops mid-storyline in the second season. Bloody cancellations.

Here, Have an AMV

Today I have for you a classic AMV, Tainted Doughnuts. This AMV is a good eight or ten years old (which is pretty old for an AMV!), and does an excellent job of using cuts and implications to give the impression that characters from different anime are sharing scenes together–something which today is mostly done by digitally compositing the characters into one another’s shots. Extremely popular and influential in its day, I think this has been mostly forgotten, but I like it for its story (a rare thing in an AMV) and humor. On the other hand, even I have to admit the song is INCREDIBLY obnoxious.
