“Somebody make me feel alive.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (10/20/17)

Let's be real: I have no idea what I'm doing with this. Maybe it sounds ridiculous, but I like Nighcore, the Hakuouki characters, and the song "Shatter Me" by Lindsey Sterling and Lizzy Hale. Combine them and I don't have a choice but to feature it, you see? https://youtu.be/dP_GoPG9ceQ I won't pretend that this AMV by Mitsu … Continue reading “Somebody make me feel alive.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (10/20/17)

Russia’s Famous Love Machine – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (10/06/18)

This is just too much for my poor heart to take. I know that the song doesn't fit exactly, I know it, but it's been stuck in my head for days now, and the thought of combining Victor Nikiforov with the words "Russia's Greatest Love Machine" was too much for me to pass up. So, … Continue reading Russia’s Famous Love Machine – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (10/06/18)

Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

Frankly, the quality of this CMV put out by Cosplay Videos by Diesel blows my mind. The amount of time, energy, planning, cooperation, and editing that went into this video titled "2000 Years Ago" is astounding. The collaboration of 20 cosplayers and 3 crew members was filmed in Germany. Entirely amateur, they have no film making experience, … Continue reading Faces of the Scouting Regiment – CMV/AMV SATURDAY (09/29/18)

“All I need’s a little love in my life.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/14/18)

I'm laughing at myself because, in spite of recognizing how annoying the sped of version of "Me and My Broken Heart" by Rixton used here is, I couldn't help but keep watching the AMV. And then I couldn't help but want to watch Magic-Kyun! Renaissance again (which is something you should TOTALLY watch if you … Continue reading “All I need’s a little love in my life.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/14/18)

“Before I lead with the worst of me…” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/07/18)

This video is going to break you; you're welcome. https://youtu.be/UToOMcZICA4 Do you know how many times I've listened to this song/watched this animation? No, of course not, because how could you? How could you know that at least a dozen of the video's views came from me? The song's lyrics and the emotion fits the … Continue reading “Before I lead with the worst of me…” –CMV/AMV Saturday (07/07/18)

“You set my heart on fire.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/30/18)

I have an intense YOI video scheduled for next Saturday, but for this week, I'd like to toss out another that is animated spectacularly but also more light-hearted; while an animatic isn't exactly an AMV, it serves a similar purpose, and this one highlights a scenario you didn't know you needed until now (but which … Continue reading “You set my heart on fire.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/30/18)

“I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/23/18)

*Amazing featured image by Merwild on DeviantArt* When I stumbled upon this video, my heart swelled within my chest and pressed against my ribs. This video combines one of my favorite songs with one of my favorite anime titles, and I don't know how I didn't realize the representational ACCURACY of the song on our leads' … Continue reading “I’m not looking for somebody with some superhuman gifts.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/23/18)

“I found a love to carry more than just my secrets.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/16/18)

Chi-Chi is often maligned and her relationship with Goku slandered. I won't belabor the point (as I already did so in my Goku and Chi-Chi relationship analysis), but the two share something that is both real and wholly necessary to their character development. ❤ My favorite things about DBZ are often those that go on … Continue reading “I found a love to carry more than just my secrets.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/16/18)

“You touch my hand as colors come alive.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/09/18)

Rarely does one find an AMV so well constructed and in which the song and anime mesh so well as to create something that nearly moves one to tears. Everything about this AMV by Emily McNeill makes it one of the best that I've seen. You may recall my musings on The Betrayal Knows My Name; … Continue reading “You touch my hand as colors come alive.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/09/18)
