【My AMV Evaluation Criteria】
①Action
Characters in an amv work has a goal or mission and they go for it. Affinity with such action and the meaning of the song is important.
②Motion 
Needless to say, motion is the "life" of an animation work. Motion cuts taken from various scenes should be skillfully edited and synchronized with the song.
③Denotation 
The animation story in an amv develops following the denotation meaning of the lyrics of the song.
④Connnotation 
If it can include the denotational semantics, the effect must be literally "beyond words."
⑤Emotion 
Animation and song are devices to stimulate your feeling. AMV creators try to move you by controlling the tone and mood on top of clearing the above points.
⑥Satisfuction 
The outcome is just like satisfaction. I really pay great respect to AMV creators who generate totally new works through editing. That's why I add amv creator's names to their works.

【Check the Conan AMV based on the Evaluation Criterias】
Let's check the AMV based on the above points. If it achieves point ①and ②, it passes the test!

Actually, the motions in this work follow all denotational meanings of the song.

いつか僕らの上をスレスレに
通りすぎていったあの飛行機

I remember when just above my head

A single airplane came on passing by.

There are no separation between the lyrics and the animation. I admit this is an unusually well-made work with considerable technique!

f:id:omhd:20181204183532p:plain

もう一度 遠くへ行け 遠くへ行けと
僕の中で誰かが歌う 
どうしようもないほど熱烈に

As I travel further and further down this road,
I can hear a song from deep within me

A song filled with more passion than I could ever express.

In this part, the creator expresses the connotation of the lyrics. The depth of the connotation depends on the understanding of lyrics. That suggests that only a high-level amv creator can do this.


⑤Wow! The creator can really touch your feelings. The effect is breathless and wordless.

f:id:omhd:20181204183114p:plain

カサブタだらけ荒くれた日々が
削り削られ 擦切れた今が
君の言葉で蘇る
鮮やかにも 現れてく
蛹のままで 眠る魂も
食べかけのまま 捨てたあの夢を
もう一度 取り戻せ

During days filled with bloody beatings and bruises,
And the present worn down and shaven away,
Your words gave me new life, appearing before me brighter than ever.
My soul continues to sleep within this cocoon.
Every dream I abandoned only halfway through,
Let's give them another go.

 

⑥Finally, the creator leads you to a perfect ending with satisfaction!

f:id:omhd:20181204183954p:plain

さらば掲げろ ピースサイン
転がっていくストーリーを
君と未来を盗み描く
捻りのないストーリーを

Goodbye to the peace sign I always made.
It's time to change up this story.
Let's take the future for ourselves,
in this simple story of ours.

Peace Sign (English translation)

Song: Peace Sign

English translation
Peace Sign
I remember when just above my head,
A single airplane came on passing by.
I always thought it strange that it stuck with me.
It really shouldn't matter at all.

After a day of crying like an idiot,
I prayed that I would get stronger that night.
And from then on I kept on searching for,
The courage that I would need.
If everything should go as this cruel fate decided,
And should the day come when it arrives at my front doorstep.
In that moment, just that moment, as long as I can still draw breath,
With this soul that once believed it all was meaningless,
I won't stop.
As I travel further and further down this road,
I can hear a song from deep within me,
A song filled with more passion than I could ever express.
Whenever I see those eyes of yours welling up,
I want to smile so that you'll never be sad again.
That's the kind of hero sung about in this song.
Goodbye to the peace sign I always made.
It's time to change up this story.
I know all to well just how strong you are,
And that you don't need anyone to protect you.
I am just so much weaker than you,
That you were special to me.

I used to scream aloud so long ago,
About how I was going to do it all by myself.
Feel free to laugh at how much I've changed,
At the me afraid to be alone.
Kicking and gnashing, I cannot even breathe.
My spinning mind and the pit of my gut became a broken mess.
I want to feel the beat of the heart within your chest.
Enough that all acting and pretense vanishes away.
All of us,
Will someday go our separate ways.
But as long as we can grab hold of the sun,
Snatch it up before daybreak comes and laugh.
If you can, then past the city in the distance,
Dyed in a blue that shines just like fire,
We'll make it if we run together, hand-in-hand.
Let's take the future for ourselves,
In this simple story of ours.
During days filled with bloody beatings and bruises,
And the present worn down and shaven away,
Your words gave me new life, appearing before me brighter than ever.
My soul continues to sleep within this cocoon.
Every dream I abandoned only halfway through,
Let's give them another go.
I won't stop.
As I travel further and further down this road,
I can hear a song from deep within me,
A song filled with more passion than I could ever express.
Whenever I see those eyes of yours welling up,
I want to smile so that you'll never be sad again.
That's the kind of hero sung about in this song.
Goodbye to the peace sign I always made.
It's time to change up this story.
Let's take the future for ourselves, in this simple story of ours.

 

Lastly, I say, "I make you a present of everything I've said as yet"!


Your friend,

m.
