This year I was able to enjoy the AMV (Anime Music Video) contest. An AMV is a fan-made music video incorporating clips of one or more animated shows or movies. I started watching AMV’s on Youtube and the process is very tedious and time consuming cutting up the video clips, and editing it to make the video fit with the song. What I love most is how when you’re watching a AMV, it is like getting a preview of the anime which I think is better then watching a trailer because, it gives, more of an inside on what to look forward to in the show or movie.
AnimeNEXT has been hosting the AMV contest for years and overtime it has become a tradition. This was my first time attending an AMV contest, and I really enjoyed watching the contestant’s AMV’s and how they correlated it with the given theme’s.
This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT. This weekend has been a never-ending fun filled con full of cosplayers, events, and games. I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.
Last year AnimeNEXT was so much fun that we’re excited about this weekend. If we haven’t said it already this weekend if AnimeNext and you should get tickets and a room for the weekend. AnimeNEXT is definitely a con to be visited in the tristate area because there is always so much to do and so many new people to meet, there’s never a dull moment going to a con that has so much to offer.
