Feature: Weekly AMV

Welcome to Weekly AMV! Every Monday I post up an AMV for your viewing and listening pleasure. AMV’s seem to get a lot of flack nowadays because YouTube is now flooded with Dragonball Z and Naruto music videos featuring nothing but songs from Linkin Park. Let me make this clear, if all you do is slap some random clips of DBZ to any random song with rock beats, you did not make an AMV, you just made crap with music. Like good, normal music videos, AMV’s need to connect their anime with their music. Playing up on themes and imagery is always a good place to start and you will notice that the majority of the AMV’s I feature will always have an intergral theme.

So it back, turn up your speakers and enjoy!

Also, I’d like to note that if you have a great AMV that hasn’t been featured yet, PM me on the forums and tell me all about it. Who knows, you might be next week’s Weekly AMV…
