“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)

“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)

“Will I think the world is colder?” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/02/18)

While not everything in the song aligns perfectly with the story of FMA/B's Edward Elric, there is enough basis to give this AMV by Jan Balcar a real grounding in its storytelling. Before watching this video set to "7 Years" by Lukas Graham, please note that Hohenheim at the beginning is actually intended to be an aged … Continue reading “Will I think the world is colder?” –CMV/AMV Saturday (06/02/18)

“I’m not the one you were meant to find.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (05/26/18)

Homophobia sucks. I find this AMV by Jas Nikiforov uses "Rewrite the Stars" from "The Greatest Showman" highly illustratively in this regard. I can't say what the creator intended, but after watching the video below, please follow up with my commentary if you're interested in my own take on the AMV.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2kXBy1YBAQ While the reasoning behind … Continue reading “I’m not the one you were meant to find.” –CMV/AMV Saturday (05/26/18)

“I’m prisoner in paradise.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/21/18)

I don't know how I managed to hold out publishing this post for a whole week, but... One of the strangest, most intensely produced, most majestic cosplay MVs that I've seen is on offer this Saturday; get ready to become a prisoner in paradise with 慕容輝's (Murong Hui's) video: https://youtu.be/eF_ND_ZkdQg Yes, the 240p quality of this video … Continue reading “I’m prisoner in paradise.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/21/18)

“Give me that thing that I love.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/14/18)

Please enjoy your weekend with this Yuri!!! On Ice AMV by MS-MV: https://youtu.be/qRy39lOZW8s The song "Applause" as covered by Sam Tsui very straightforwardly describes Victor's mindset pre-Yuuri almost to a startling degree, and I love it; before Yuuri, all Victor cared about was wow-ing and surprising his audience, and I suppose that the reason that I … Continue reading “Give me that thing that I love.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/14/18)

“Keeping Up with the Dancing Wind” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/07/18)

Have you ever wanted to see someone (or a group of someones for that matter) summarize the second season of Hakuouki (Hakuouki Hekketsuroku) in dance? Well, now you get to see it. I, for one, am just dead. I love it so much. Why do I love it so much? This feature is published on the … Continue reading “Keeping Up with the Dancing Wind” — CMV/AMV Saturday (04/07/18)

“They’re whispering ‘You’re out of time,’ but still I rise.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (03/31/18)

I hadn't heard the song Rise by Katy Perry until I stumbled upon this video; I'm not a huge modern pop fan, so this isn't such a surprise, but I didn't even realize that Katy Perry was singing until over half way through the video. I then suspected enough to confirm the knowledge. Moving on, … Continue reading “They’re whispering ‘You’re out of time,’ but still I rise.” — CMV/AMV Saturday (03/31/18)

“Keep my glass full until morning light, ’cause I’m just holding on for tonight.”–CMV/AMV Saturday (03/24/18)

Now that is is OFFICIALLY SATURDAY, the second post of my new segment is in the books with this latest installment! Our (second) feature this week is a Yuri!!! On Ice AMV from MissPeggy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPqwTbMtuH4 I was riveted the first time I stumbled across this AMV (on Pinterest, believe it or not). Since then, I've viewed … Continue reading “Keep my glass full until morning light, ’cause I’m just holding on for tonight.”–CMV/AMV Saturday (03/24/18)
