A bit of something Extra

Once again I am here to bring to you yet another video which shows off the art, well what I take to be an art, that is creating an AMV. Now those of you who have been following me for a bit now may have noticed that I have yet to show you anything that was bad. Ok yes, but never bad and well I suppose that I should show you something that was a bad example so that you have a means with which to judge for yourself the AMVs that I have been posting. A quick defination of what an AMV is as this is relevant to the rest of my post.

AMV - Stands for 'Anime Music Video', an unofficial music video to a popular song created by budding video editors from clips of anime films and series.  AMV creators use the song and anime without permission but it is generally turned a blind eye to.  There are often AMV competitions at conventions, and AMV creators take them very seriously (Definition provided by Animetion's Glossary)

Well first off this AMV is done to Lady Gaga who we all love to hate, since she is a sell out whore who tries to pretend to be something that she is not. People  over play her music to death and make me want to smash whatever is playing it at the time. More then once our roommates laptop and MP3 player was almost the victim of my rage for this woman. Anyway back on topic..

Not only does the song grate on the nerves but I would not even classify it as an AMV. Yes there are clips of some random anime thrown in there, but a good chunk of it is clips from what looks to be like some kind of festival/concert thing. And its not even clips of like hot girls or something, which would save any bad video, no the clips are like of kids dancing and old people. Granted kids dancing is cute but really has no purpose in what is suppose to be an AMV, I mean there was even a clip of some drunk fat guys dancing. Yet again I will reiterate there were no HOT girls. 

Now the bit of anime clips that they did incorporate were either some shameless anime smut, which from time to time I do enjoy but then there was this like tween prepubescent pedo anime. Sorry when I am looking for some anime girl I want them with the bouncing boobs on an adult or at least late teen body. Not some ten year old! To make it even worst the clips that were used really were pointless to the point where they could have been left out completely and then it would have just been some video of a concert thing. 

So without much more to say here is this video created by jeaniederange which I give a 0 out of five.  

Now for something that I think deserves a 5 out of 5 but will only be getting a 4 out of 5 because it was short and I wanted more. 

Now for the review, the song choice with the anime scenes was perfect. Not only that but the added effects truly shows the skill of the creator without making it look annoying or just over done. The scenes sync perfectly with the music, truly conveying the emotion that song portrays to the point where you want more when its over. You want to see how the rest of it would turn out with the rest of the song! Now I know some of you don't like Sailor Moon, but Sailor Moon to Chevelle  is fucking awesome! So I bring to you an awesome video done by the talented xKaosu.

Ok now the something extra. An AMV that my husband and I searched the entire web that would just suit the song perfectly. It has my favorite feature which is the sexy, fun dancing and bouncing anime girls. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have. I will admit the audio is not the best but hey watch them girls dance! :P

And because I love you all so much I wanted to add that bit more in there ;)

Hope you will enjoy and continue to follow and support. 


  1. Oh, I really liked the KAOSU vid, everything was synced nicely, good quality clips, and some nice effects. Though the water mark they put on it was kind of distracting.

  2. Yeah that first one was terrible. Flipping hate the GaGa T_T.

  3. lol - it took me 5 minutes to figure out what an AMV was the first time I saw that acronym.
