Ten years ago today, this video was uploaded to animemusicvideos.org by an editor going by the handle of Koopiskeva.
Since then, it has become the highest-rated video on the site. It’s also amassed 1,526 opinions from viewers, more than any other video on the site. To put that in perspective, the second most-opinioned AMV has 722 opinions. Koopiskeva was a big name in the hobby and still is, and this is perhaps his best-known work. There’s always been a lot of hype around his videos, but I feel that this AMV actually deserves the attention and acclaim it’s received over the years, and that it still looks fantastic today.
For all the competition in this hobby, there’s actually little consensus on what is the greatest AMV ever made. I don’t know if this is it or not, but I’m certain that no discussion of the matter would be complete without a mention of this video. Enjoy.
