Still the Same a-m-v.org

An example of a website behind on times. It stubbornly stays the same trying to keep itself alive.

All that space on the sides. Imagine the disaster when 4k users have to deal with this atrocity. They would need a magnifying glass to just read the text.

On this day and age, mainstream users are rocking 1080p resolutions on their PCs or whatever devices. Due to evolving techs out there, websites need to make changes in order to be optimized for easier viewing.

Deleting a video should be the editor’s choice, NOT THE SITE’S, regardless of reasons. It’s no wonder why the org is dying. Editors these days transitioning to youtube.

Can we please have those steps all in ONE page? Also, finding the anime/music is a pain in the ass sometimes.

Want to search the AMV by anime or music, this is how they STILL do it. The list pops up on the left side. Oh my eyes.

You can’t be serious…

We’re in the 2016 and this forum STILL refuses to have a fucking edit button on user’s posts. One step forward, two steps backwards. It makes no freakin sense to not have that. People make mistake whenever they post whether it’d be spelling/grammar or accidentally pressing the wrong button.

After clicking on Local for download, this donation page still shoves you in the face before downloading making you one click away from downloading.

Here’s another annoyance that’s been bothering me ever since I uploaded the Shinjuku Station bumpers onto their site, THEY STILL FORCE YOU TO USE FTPs TO UPLOAD. GET ON WITH THE TIMES YOU HOES!

It’s a ghost town. Very few members are still active. The site rarely updates. Do I still recommend this site for your main AMV headquarters? It’s hard to say. With youtube cracking down videos with copyright strikes, there’s not much of a choice, it’s the last resort to watch AMVs.

music review: lynch – AVANTGARDE

September 18, 2016 Leave a comment

 

It’s become clear to me that every album lynch releases, they move up the ranks of my top favorite bands. They’re now ranked 5th on my list. One of the things I love about their discography is that all of their song titles are in English. That alone saves me time of retagging their tracks from kanji to romaji. AVANTGARDE is an improvement from their previous work, D.A.R.K.-In the Name of Evil-. The typical lynch fashion of alternative metal with more oomph. More memorable songs here, however there are still filler tracks throughout. If I had to pick a favorite song here, that would be UNELMA. It’s got the same song writing characteristic from abingdon boys school and the style from the GazettE making this a very easy song to get into.

Highlights: UNELMA, PHANTOM, F.A.K.E.

Worthwhile: EVIDENCE, PLEDGE, THE OUTRAGE SEXUALITY, FAREWELL, KILLING CULT

Fillers: DAMNED, PRAYER, NEEDLEZ

Rating: 8/10

Song of the Day: Moe Shop – Superstar (w/ Hentai Dude)

September 11, 2016 Leave a comment

First off, awe inspiring cinematography in that video. 2nd, this song is weeaboo to the max. Just listen to the lyrics, it’s hilarious! But the tune is so catchy I can’t help it. This is the kind of rap music I can tolerate. Although I dislike hearing profanity in songs, at least this is better than ghetto rap that you typically hear on the radio. The album is free to download.

Shinjuku Station Bumper #10 – Dreamscape (Final)

September 5, 2016 Leave a comment

It’s been nearly 2 years since I done video bumpers for Shinjuku Station. I enjoyed my time editing these and relearning some techniques and gaining few new skills. With that said, this is my final bumper. Reason for that is, well, I wanted to reach the 10th mark of my bumper line and it’s time for me to step aside to let others shine.

I will continue video editing as I still have an unfinished AMV sitting on my hard drive for several years now and some new projects planned in the near future. I hope you enjoy this video. A lot of thought was put onto this when I first heard this amazing progressive house song. Shinkai’s gorgeous anime visuals matched the dreamy euphoric state of the music.

Here’s the bumperless version.

Xenogears – My Favorite JRPG

Anything Xenogears related is worth the reblog.

Updated: August 22, 2016

This is not a review. This is simply me pouring my passion into a largely unorganized post. I’ve long wanted to write something like this for archival purposes.

To begin with, I think it’s necessary to establish some context. I began playing JRPGs in the mid/late-90s as a kid and one of the earliest titles to capture me was Squaresoft’s Chrono Trigger, a game still beloved to this day by many. I’ll leave fanboying over Chrono Trigger for another time, but it does serve as an important preface to this discussion; it introduced me to legendary music composer Yasunori Mitsuda and scriptwriter Masato Kato, both who were also involved in Xenogears. So when I played Xenogears in the early 2000s I was already intrinsically attracted to it due to hearsay — the fact that some of Chrono Trigger‘s development team was involved…

Sony of the Day: Walkure – Kaze wa Yokoku Naku Fuku

Lately, I’ve been listening to this nonstop. It’s catchy and well composed. Loving the guitar solo parts. The legit drumming also sounds nice! In case if anyone’s wondering, the song is from Macross Delta.

Acen / AX2016 Video

August 21, 2016 Leave a comment

Finally I got around to compile this. The video is about all the con stuff I recorded during my stay. I wasn’t able to record as much as I wanted to due to some restrictions and the weight of my camera equipment causing some inconveniences around certain circumstances. Otherwise, enjoy!🙂
