Some AMVs and MMVs made by Russian fans

just follow the link

Most of them are my all time favorites. We were lucky to have some really talented people "visit" MoB fandom over the years :)

Thank you for sharing these!

Thank you for sharing these! I hadn't seen most of those before, and they were quite good!

Lately I've been thinking about all the perfect AMVs that could be done if the anime covered the whole story. Here's one example of a song that could have been an even better fit for an AMV if there was more material to work with.

I haven't seen this AMV

I haven't seen this AMV before, thank you for sharing! The song is perfect indeed :)

Well, since it's higly unlikely there will be any sequels to anime, ever, MMVs is the next best thing. I was really impressed with what Teakini did in her works, how she was able to tell the post OVA story using doujinshi art. Anime and OVAs are far too overused. If anyone wants to say anything new with their MoB fan videos, they have to use illustrations and doujinshis. I suppose it's more technically challenging than creating a video from footage, but I wish there were more people learning how to do that...

Here's some more:

This is a meditative one :)

It's true, many AMV's use all

It's true, many AMV's use all the same scenes, so it's quite hard to find anything that stands out anymore. But at least sometimes you still bump into videos with especially suitable songs. ^^ It's great some people have used other sources as well to tell the story after the OVAs and have tried different styles - I kind of liked that meditative one too! Who knows, maybe I'll try making a CMV someday with my Naoe person!

CMV

Oh, I'd love to see a Mirage CMV one day :)

As a matter of fact, the still pictures you already have with your cosplay would fit nicely into a video too. Maybe they can make an entire video, if there's enough of them.

CMV

Oh, that's something I hadn't considered before. With four photoshoots behind us there are already lots of pictures. I'll try to post some here as well someday soon! But we have begun planning a proper CMV already, so that should happen too at some point. It could be a little easier if we knew more about what actually happens in the prequels, but maybe we can at least do something meditative (- I ended up being quite inspired by that one example!) and not worry about the plot for now.

That second one to "My Immortal" is really beautiful. It made my heart ache. I could really feel how hopeless Naoe and Kagetora must have felt at times. I hadn't seen a lot of those illustrations before either, nice!

Yeah, you can't go wrong with meditative. I mean, whatever calamity happens in Kagetora's life, he does have ocasional peaceful moments :) In Kaiko-hen, for instance, they travel a lot on foot, camping out in the woods, with campfire and all. I think this is something easy to capture with photos.

As far as emotions go, the first part of Kaiko is very intense, Kagetora goes from confused/depressed to angry/hateful and back again, and generally speaking is in a lot of pain. He sorts things out somewhere around the middle and becomes adequate - calm, reserved and preoccupied with work. But there's still this deep sense of melancholy that he can never shake off - that's what makes him who he is.

Yes, this one is the best :) The illustrations must be from the dojinshis I scanned and only shared on Russian reseources... We have sort of a community account where everyone can upload to and download from with a password - helps to keep everything we have collected in one place and share with each other. If you guys had an account like this for English speakers, I could've uploaded some DJ that I have scanned. Maybe someone would care to translate something :)
