It's interesting to see what has become of anime music videos.
The AMV embedded above is "PencilHead," a project by the guy who turned Noir into a beautiful James Bond intro. Both AMVs are of the "Death By After-Effects" variety, but PencilHead is the new crown jewel of the genre.
You will see why.
Fortunately, that type does not rule all AMVs. New classic-form ones, which involve one show set to one song with excellent timing, still exist.
Not that I have anything against skillful editing, of course. Here's another newish one which uses video-splicing skills to great effect -- by presenting something fun, not making the editing the star of the show.
It's all making me excited for Otakon, months away. AMV Hell 6 will be there. The crowd will go wild, I'm sure.
