Youtube is a daily must. So whilst I was flicking through my loveable favourites, I somehow came across this AMV. It’s got excellent graphics (though not on WP; I’d recommend watching it on Youtube directly) and humour to boost. The lip-syncing may have not been a complete a complete success but you can hardly see the mistakes, so it’s all good :)
The video is just as its name says – An AMV about TV, starring Kyon from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Watch it and you’ll see by what I mean AWESOMELY FUNNY + ENTERTAINING. The beginning can be a tad bit boring and misleading though; just wait til it gets to the 20sec mark. The fun and comedy basically starts from there.
*Perhaps its just me, but the link doesn’t seem to work on WordPress. It does, however, on Youtube directly. Just simply click the WATCH ON YOUTUBE button in the bottom right-hand corner to do this.

WELL FINALLY! See I told you there would be full AMVs, but you probably didn’t believe me. WELL HAH! You are wrong and I am right!
Well that aside — This is my Otakon Submission, but don’t hold your breath, my flagrant use of copyrighted logos, even though I tweaked them a bit will probably get me disqualified. But that doesn’t really matter cause this AMV is the SHIZ.
So I got this idea a week or so ago, I was desperately looking for a great idea for an Otakon Video — And as I keapt telling Reu — I needed inspiration to hit me over the head. AND IT DID in the form of this Scouting for Girls Song. I had just downloaded the album — there is a whole convoluted reasoning chain that leads back to Reu, so Reu is the source of this inspiration (although I’m beginning to suspect that Reu is at the source of everything).
But enough of being creepy. I thought to myself, now who would be fit to tell this story? Well it’s a little well known fact that I am totally obsessed with Kyon — Seriously love him to death — I know so haruhi-esk right? Anyway If any character would hate being famous the most, I think it would be Kyon, but with Haruhi out of the way…Who knows what Kyon would do? So that’s how this idea was born.
I have been dying to make a Creative AMV. One of my Fav AMVs is Takeout by Driftroot. That amv is so creative and tells an epic story. If you haven’t seen it CHECK. IT. OUT. I also love all of its little hidden messages. So that is what I strove for in this AMV.
So after I decided that this AMV basically edited itself. There were some hurried moments of searching for TV clips, and of course the search for the Perfect James Dean. But I think it came out alright. There are mistakes. There are logos. But I think it looks fine and I’m done with it.
There are also so many little hidden things in the AMV — Messages, Inside Jokes, Subplots, Confessions from the Heart. You know all that. Good Luck finding them
I could not have made this AMV without these people.
Reu — Reu seriously you were like the backbone of this project, when I had no idea where to go or what to do, you always had a helpful hint or just words of praise. Which was lovely. You are always so quick to beta test anything I throw out — And I know it breaks your heart when I throw out AMV ideas and betas that you secretly enjoyed. But you still stand by me with your helpful hints of AWESOMENESS. You are amazing Reu!
Josh — You know I showed you this AMV expecting (hoping even) for the immediate Josh smackdown. But NO. you actually liked the idea and came up with a large amount of the ideas which are towards the end of the AMV — so that was nice. Even though the Kyon part burned your soul. And of course, I got nice things to correct from you.
Alexy and Erica — Dude. I needed Lucky star. And you brought it. You are like Anime OP dealers. Thank you.
Everyone who beta’d for me — (Your names are at the end) I couldn’t have made this without you. You guys always help so much in AMV Making.
Alright well all the song info and such is in the Credits — I’ll get a DL link up soon enough-You should watch the Credits though.. The Credits song is called Bubbles BTW. Its By Biffy Clyro.
Love you all to death and if this somehow magically makes it to Otakon wish it LUCK!
PS: Who could that be at the end of the AMV?
FAQ: What is an AMV?
Anime Music Video, or AMV for short. It’s name says it all; a fan-made music video based off on Japanese anime.
Why should I watch AMV?
This is pretty much the same question as to why one should watch anime. Personally, I like watching AMVs cause they almost always introduce me to some great anime series, as well as new music for me to listen on my mp3. Moreover, it’s fun to see people test out their skills and share to it world on youtube.
