THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well this was certainly a different style of animation. The whole samurai thing was pretty cool. The eye thing was kind of weird though.

Best animation so far.

Still not seeing the worth in this project though. They even fail as AMVs, just a bunch of random imagery, and even though #1 and #2 had a narrative, the music didnt match them at all.

Gurren Lagann with an art style similar to Mononoke? Now this I can get behind. Still doesn't explain why they're doing this in the first place, but unlike the other two this was cool.

I am a big TTGL fan, but I must say this AMV was horrible.

Even though I like the idea of this project, it's keeping the interest in this anime. I did not get this amv :x Music was a bit like Baccano OP, but the scenes were like completely not related, and Nia did look awful. Even less enjoyable than the 2nd one, which was at least funny.

Bu i'm still looking forward to 'Libera Me' D:

My favourite tracks off the OST are 4, 10, 16, 19 (libera!) and 21. I'm looking forward to them messing those up too!

Get the soundtrack. Turn up the volume to 11. Try to block out the memories of this flawed-beyond-redemption project.

Meh, I enjoyed the first one quite a bit, the second one was at least entertaining, but yeah...as far as this song goes, it is completely unsalvageable.

That has to be the most confusing yet creative video so far. I say creative because of the art style. Meh...

I wish this had better music. Entry level sounding jazz doesn't seem fitting.

Characters look bad? This was made with traditional japanese drawing techniques, peeps. lern 2 culture, your animu had to come from somewhere -__-

The art style and music got me into this episode, despite the fact that they are from different cultures.

Even though some of the content of the episodes were lackluster, I think it is cool to see different animators display their ideas.
