The one difference here and amv's that I can see is that the amv community are more music heavy. All source of footage are there to serve the music and be its counter part. Story will climax when the songs climax, footage will emote with the melody of song, etc.What’s their perspective. I’m intrigued.
Since being back, here has been more on the sentimental side with more "tributes".
This speaks for itself. They already hold big international amv contests like Anime Expo and Akross.
