I hate them for several reasons, the people creating them think their the most creative people in the world, when all they do is link a bunch of random clips together and then add music like death metal. Yeah, your really creative. Add the fact that most of the people respond to these videos like the creators have done something truely amazing-- worthy of worship.. it just adds to my hate.


Obviously -- you haven't seen the ones where people actually did put work into these videos -- other than simple random pasting of clips glued to music.

Plenty utilize visual effects. Random anime clips -- in mini-windows. A flurry of color and text. And a whole mess of other stuff people can actually do creatively with these things.

And yes. I hate the 99% of AMVs that are random clips with music behind them. Any dumbass can make those.

Anything that isn't in sync with the audio doesn't count as an AMV in my books. It's like fanfiction to a novel. I just think you've been intoxicated by all the crap that you rarely see the gems. A good AMV incorperates the lyrics by either lip syncing it to the anime or follow the "story" of the song through the visuals. Hell this stuff is on par with the Anime Opening/Closing videos.

This one from Nico Nico Douga is all sorts of epic.

I find most of them pretty crappy, but I have seen some exceptional works, so I can't condemn the entire practice, even in a great deal of it is crappy Linkin Park songs with Sasuke or the likes.


Winners or even Finalists of "AMV" contests at the major conventions, like Anime Expo, especially the more creative works. The competitive aspect puts entrees into a higher standard.

Now, about the random clips glued to music -- even this style CAN be done well -- just as long as the purpose is filled, like the reason for using certain clips at certain times are obvious. Yea, I managed to rethink about a couple that fit the "random" category but aren't actually that bad.

Yes as most people have said, most AMV's are pretty bad. Just random clips from the show with the same music(Now i enjoy Linkin Park but i agree i want some variety). I have personally only come across one AMV that i actually enjoyed.

AMVs are kinda like diamonds, you need to sift through a lot to find the good ones and still they're outnumbered by the dirt and mud.

It's not that I hate them, I just fail to see the objective.

It's not like organizing frames is a form of art.

I don't hate them I only hate the oones that aren't creative and have let the bodies hit the floor for a fighting amv . what i do is pick a song that goes along with the anime's storyline or a character personality

Personally, I'm not a fan of AMV's. I'll admit that some are high quality, but that's just like anything. You'll have your low quality and then you'll have a few who are talented.

I just don't like the idea of an AMV. I watch TV shows, anime, movies, etc because they contain a story. An AMV, to me, doesn't contain a story. It's clips from an anime (or multiple animes) with some music added. Now sure it's not that simple, but I don't think AMV's add anything.

To me, it's like a music video. I enjoy music, but I find music video's pointless. A lot of them don't even have anything to do with the song, though I'll admit some are good like Serj Tankian's Empty Wall's.

I don't have anything against AMV's or people who make/watch AMV's. People have different likes and dislikes.

There are some AMV's that are really great and some that just really suck.

I think this one is pretty good, and if you watched Azumanga Daioh it a lot makes sense.

The only one I really liked would be this one.

Amvs with subs drive me up the wall. And the use of angsty music.

Fantasia was the best amv ever.

I hate them too. The same shitty Linkin Park songs.


HAHA!

Most of them are pretty fucking shit..

"Durrrrp I'm a real anime fan becoz I watch AMVs"

Srsly, They really are just clips pasted together..

But the only thing close to an AMV that I will watch are OP's..which are AMV because they show clips from the show while playing music..but they are actually done well..unlike the noob fans that make shitty ones..with shitty music by gay bands like FLYLEAF or w/e..

If you wanna see good music videos look at some of the stuff More then Toast does. Some videos actually can be considered Art. Like I've seen ones where this guy edited cowboy bebop and trigun together to make it look like Spike was hunting Vash. It was really good. Another I saw was gundams attacked Nerve in evangelion, he did it mostly in photo shop frame by frame and it came out amazing.

That one was actually pretty good. It's rare to find any that... fit? Actually work with the story like this does. Most are just emo songs to stupid characters fighting or something.

i agree most of them are lame, but some are really effective with their use of sound and imagery. like with pretty much anything in entertainment, 95% of it will be crap, but there is still that 5% that is worth it. you just have to find them.
