Best AMV i've seen? Hmmm...
Well, AMV Hell had many-a winner. Can't name a favorite off the top of my head.
 
So instead, here's this classic:

  The first ever AMVs I saw about 7 years ago.
 
One of which, the NERV Evening news with Dan Rather I couldn't embed because Youtube has cut the sound on all the uploads.

Since you already have the Hold Me Now/Princess Tutu AMV, I'm going to go with Nostromo's Magic Pad.

Here are some of the AMV's that I have come across in the past 3 years. 

1. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops+(made by a student for a school project, took some of the different animation from the game and paired it up with the song "Calling to the Night" by Natasha Farrow.
 
 
    
2. Bleach: Time of Dying (combining awesome elements of the one Bleach movie with the song "Time of Dying" by Three Days Grace)
 
 

3. Empty Walls: Elfen Lied(most of the fight scenes and deaths that take place in the anime Elfen Lied put to the music of Serj Tankian's Empty Walls)
 
 
4. Soul Eater AMV: You're Going Down (clips taken from Soul Eater and paired with the hit song "You're Going Down" by Sick Puppies)
 
  
Please watch and enjoy!

The topic of AMVs seems much more pop culture then directly anime or manga related.
I'm normally a pretty strong critic of AMVs, but there are some that I really enjoy. It's often annoying how frequently my favorites get removed from youtube.  Mostly these are One Piece AMVs.
I thought it best to put them in Spoiler Tags just for the spacing on the page.

Various Anime AMVs

Y ‘all forgot about what might’ve been the first mainstream/official AMV by Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan for his “Daytona 500” video which synced up with clips from Speed Racer well over a decade ago.

Actually befora few years back my biggest hobby was to make AMVs

 

Obviously I am NOT good at making them, but they were very fun to make...

I would love to post one that I made years ago but it's an AMV set to the Bible Black Hentai so it has some scenes of full on sex. It was set to the song "Sex, Love and Magic" and I called it "Sex, Love and Tentacle Rape". It was the first and only AMV i have ever made so it's cut rather roughly at some points, but I still like to think it came out pretty well considering all I had at the time was windows movie maker since i couldn't get adobe premier to work for some reason.
 
If anyone really wants to see it, just search for "Sex, Love and Tentacle Rape" on the animemusicvideos.org site. It should be listed under the same user name.
 
Ahhh screw it, I'm gonna post it and hope the spoiler tags keep me safe.
