Anime AMV Showcase

I've only recently heard of the anime AQUARION EVOL, but from what I've seen it looks pretty cool. Kind of annoying that I can't seem to find that anyone is streaming this series legally. I did find kind of a nice AMV for this series. The person who put this one together had a nice touch of adding the lyrics for the song on the screen. This one is a little more low key that the past AMVs.

Remember, if you would like to submit something for the Spotlight. You can send me a PM, but please be sure to add "Spotlight" to the subject line. I can't stress how important that is because it might just be lost in my Inbox when I clear it.Even if you have worked on something yourself and are really proud of your work. Get to work, and make more content for the next Spotlight!! Jana!!

Congrats everyone and my teammates! There's a lot of episode wiki work and stellar blogs this week. Good job to the folks who cover the anime and manga series. Keep up the great work.

Good job y'all!
Good job y'all!

I'll be checking out Aquarion Evol. I find the AMV's song a bit repetitive with "Hei" over and over. Still, it's good AMV.

@takashichea:

I think the site does well when we don't just have the big name series in our database, but also series or editions that more obscure. You'd be surprised how many different STRIKE WITCHES manga there are, or just how many manga there are for PERSONA 4. I need to go back and add all the PERSONA 3 manga, as well.

I thought I was done ever editing the Bleach wiki again but Vandenreich called out to me. More Sengoku Collection is woo hoo too. That and episode 9 were a bitch to find information for.

Props to everyone mentioned and keep up the good work.
