Saturday Morning Cartoons: Neon Genesis Evangelion “Numinous” (See Warnings Below)

I got kind of random yesterday and decided to look for an Eva vid for this morning… y’know, cause edgelord grimdark is exactly what the world wants at 11am on a Saturday morning, right? (Technically, this isn’t just Evangelion–there are other sources for the vid including FMA:Brotherhood and Animatrix, among others.)

I haven’t had to use any sort of content warnings in previous posts, but… well… It’s Evangelion. TW/CW: nudity, violence, violence against women, body horror, non-con, epilepsy warning, etc.

Head over to the vid’s page for a bunch of technical info for the video and how MrNosec made such a gorgeous Evangelion video even with End of Evangelion included among the various sources. There are also links to each of his AMV profiles, including the Org and a direct download. Which like… is a super throwback for me, because I think this is the first I’ve seen link backs to the Org and all since getting back into AMVs.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: The Clone Wars, “Man On Fire”

!!!!!!!!!!

I found this video Thursday night and. I. adore it. Man On Fire was on my list of videos I wanted to find anyway, but I was searching for videos to lovelytheband, not Oh The Larceny. Luckily, YouTube knew, or something, cause this was in the list that came up in my search. (lovelytheband does come up in its own search, just not what I’m looking for so far as show/song/chara set up.

Also? I would never have thought to look up something like Clone Wars for an AMV. My eyes have been opened, and I realize there’s more to this world than giant robots and harem romances… Anyway, time for the real stars of The Clone Wars to shine ❤

(Okay, I know I said the CTs are the real stars, and they are, but c’mon we know the real star is really Ahsoka. I’m totally going on the hunt for some Ahsoka vids, now.)

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Sword Art Online “Take Me Home”

I haven’t posted a Saturday Morning Cartoons in roughly a month now, mostly out of pure stubbornness. There are dozens and dozens by Anime Safe Haven that I can and eventually will post, but I don’t want to only post ASH’s vids; in addition, I keep having very specific ideas about what videos I want to post, and I’ve yet to find anything to match any of those ideas. Today, though? Finding this was a complete accident and I love it.

I was actually searching for possible AMVs for Country Roads, and there are some, but way down in the list I found this. I love it for two reasons: one, it’s a catchy song with good, fun editing; two, and more importantly? It only uses footage from actual Sword Art Online, as in the game the show’s named for. Cause I mean, the more recent stuff in the gun game is interesting enough, but SAO needs to be SAO, and Asuna is more than just The Girlfriend Type™. Only the original SAO really portrays her as that, even while also letting her have more domestic interests and skills as well. They could have gone all moody badass chick to go along with Kirito’s moody badass dude. They could have gone all Girlfriend Type from the start. They didn’t, though; in that early part of the show, she was actually a well-rounded person.

Asuna deserves more than what the show’s given her from the second half of that first season and onward. This video gives her what she deserves.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Martian Successor Nadesico “Superman”

This is another really, really, old AMV, but it’s by far one of my favorites ever. Nadesico is one of the best, most underrated series ever, and Akito and this cover of Five For Fighting’s Superman (acappella by Off The Beat) is amazing. The show itself is an amazing blend of space-mecha-harem-parody anime there is, always and never taking itself too seriously. Since there’s no official upload on youtube, here’s the original page for it on the Org: Akitoman by dji. (From what I can see, quality will seem better on phones than browsers, since they won’t stretch quite as much.)

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Fairy Tail “So Soon”

I’ve been trying for almost a week now to find a video for today that fits some very specific themes, but I haven’t had any luck with that yet. So, instead, I have something very sad instead. Anime Safe Haven’s video for Fairy Tail’s Lucy and Aquarius, set to Maher Zain’s “So Soon.”

(Note: this is far from the last time you’ll see A.S.H.’s videos here. I adore so much of her work, and the fact that most of it is Fairy Tail doesn’t hurt, either.)

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood “Seven Devils”

Ack, week 2 of Saturday Morning Cartoons and I’m already running a bit late. >.< I couldn’t find a quality copy of the video I wanted to post, but I found this vid in the meantime and I’m glad I did because I love it. To be fair, “seven devils” is kind of on the nose for the Homunculi… but so what? I like the Homunculi, and I love Florence and the Machine.

Enjoy. Seven Devils by Ƙαηєιѕнкι Sαяαηυкι

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Macross Plus “The Distance”

Okay, so I think I did a thing like this, if not this exact thing, way way way back when I started my page back on Blogger. That was about 10 years ago, though, but I decided I’m going to bring it back again.

Saturday Morning Cartoons is super, absurdly simple: It’s a ton of AMVs I love, one a week. I haven’t been big into the whole AMV scene in years, though, so unfortunately a lot of them are going to be lower video quality due to age alone. Luckily, though, someone took one of my favorites ever – Macross Plus to Cake’s “The Distance” and remade frame by frame with newer, higher-quality video. It’s still not perfect, since the remake is already four years old, but the update is incredibly good.

(Full disclosure: I’m so partial to this video because I always wanted to make one with this pairing. It wouldn’t have been frame by frame, but the entire concept and a lot of the scenes are the same. I never mentioned online that I wanted this pairing, so that someone else made it almost the same as I would have made my day back when I found this. Also, I can’t get the Org to load to post a direct link to the original editor’s profile, but a link to the video’s original page is included in the YouTube page for this upload.)
