I voted 3, 5, 6 and 9~
Bestanimeofalltime is just always so good... (though I forgot to nominate one I really liked (I hope it's still in though ;3))
And for some reason Nichijou videos on youtube are always amazing! XD

Yes, it did~
You're just able to change your votes if you want.
It's kinda weird how it doesn't say something like 'thank you for voting', but your vote should have been registrated!~ ;3

This is going to change for the subsequent polls, popular opinion (consisting of Ebby and Xander) wants no changes to polls after submission.

The time given is definitely necessary on the first rounds. Not everyone has the time to spare one hour to look at the 10 videos and choose every day.


Finally had the time to watch them and vote.

I ranked them below in order of preference
SpoilerShow
9. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Steel Fenders AMV
I like how well all the scenes from so many anime are mixed together to tell a different story between those character. The editing skill is awesome; and if I didn't like that much the song the first time I watched it, I goes well with the story so I soon started to like that part of the AMV as well.

6. Safety Dance AMV - Best Upbeat 2011
There are several awesome AMV featuring nichijou on youtube. This is definitely one of them. I never watched that anime though ^^".

5. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Metamorphose AMV
Another AMV by Umika, just like steel fenders. While I like this one less compared to some of her other works, the way to blend all the different anime in one story so well that you can't even notice most of the anime used at first glance is impressive, and the story told etc is nicely done.

3. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Implosion AMV
I like the fact that the trailer-like aspect of this amv. And it makes look the index anime so much more badass than it really is. There's a really good job with this one, it feels different than most amv you can see on youtube.

4. Spanish Wolf [Spice and Wolf AMV]
A Really nice amv that really does a good job catching the atmosphere of ookami to koushinryou. Too bad that poll had so many good titles, so I couldn't include it in my votes. Well, two amv from Umika right from the first poll, this hurts.

10. Amv - Imagination 720p
I always thought that amv was nicely done. However, it's not really to my taste as I prefer AMV either story focused, or focused on one anime, rather than an AMV focused on one general theme/without theme.

2. 【MAD】[THsub NERD-FS]『さよなら君の声』[Sayonara kimi no koe]
I didn't know where to place this one really. It may have deserved to be a bit higher. Anyway, good job capturing the story. However, too much statics scenes with characters simply talking can quickly bore people who didn't watch the anime ImO. And the editing skills isn't anything worth mentioning.

8. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ My Sassy Girl(s) AMV
Well, there's certainly editing skills here. But like I said above, I don't like that much general theme based AMV. There's a lot of those in the list of bestamvsofalltime, and I'm not a big fan of them.

7. 【MMD銀魂】千本桜
It certainly is impressive in its one genre. But I was quickly bored with it, and had to force myself finishing it. Obviously, this cannot rank any higher after that...

1. MTC - DJ S3RL
Nominating a music only video in a video tournament is always a risky bet. It's like putting all your money on the same horse, as if the voter don't like the music, well, there'll be nothing left to save the video. And it's my case, I don='t like it. As for the lyrics, on that kind of subject, I found it was too direct, too poor, too little, lacking any sense of taste and refinement and felt like there were written by a 14 years old boy for who lewd things he can imagine is basically either masturbating or having a girl sitting on his crotch. If you want lyrics on that subject that are worth listening too, try something more elaborated like /hidden (to stay with youtube video of the same kind with digitalized voices and music only). Now that's something where I can enjoy the risky lyrics. Well, at least, that's my preference.
In the end, there was only 3 videos that I didn't know (1,2,7). I thought there were more when I looked at the list the first time. Nice selection anyway. I look forward the 40 others.

I know I didn't nominate (I wish I had, but exams T-T ), demo, for Blaze-kun no superubo efforto~♥
1. MTC - DJ S3RLShow
wth did I just listen to? Should I be listening to these in incognito windows...? Those lyrics I don't even. Also too elektronika for me :<
I actually listened to the whole thing to give it a chance but...
0.5/10. I probably gave it a point too much.
2. 【MAD】[THsub NERD-FSShow
『さよなら君の声』[Sayonara kimi no koe]
feat. Mashiroiro Symphony]It would be helpful if I had English lyrics to know what the lyrics mean other than the actual title since it seemed a bit important and I don't read... is that Thai? Besides that; an ok vid, didn't especially leap out at me or anything so average, I guess~
4/10
3. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Implosion AMVShow
I quite liked this one. Good buildup of suspense, good synchronization, told its story nicely, nice colors made me almost want to watch Toaru, (but not really); felt very much like a trailer/PV. It was nice, but lacked memorability and impact. Nothing really happened with the music.
6/10
4. Spanish Wolf [Spice and Wolf AMVShow
Very cute, adorable even. Definitely makes me want to watch Spice and Wolf (I know, I know, I still haven't watched it yet ><) Super, super adorable, well matched even though I wasn't super keen on the song.
7.5/10
5. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Metamorphose AMVShow
A little overbright but gorgeous. Very well done.
8.8/10
6. Safety Dance AMV - Best Upbeat 2011Show
Hahaha very adorable, awesome match. Hilarious xD
8.5/10
7. 【MMD銀魂】千本桜Show
Sprites are very cool~ I actually really like what they did~
7.8/10
8. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ My Sassy Girl(s) AMVShow
I liked the start but never a fan of insert Eng rap. It's relatively well done, but not a fan, sorry.
3.8/10
9. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Steel Fenders AMVShow
Fairly well put together though the animation is a bit iffy to me. Not amazing, but decent~
5.5/10
10. Amv - Imagination 720pShow
Lyrics are so. mundane. Please just get on the damn train if that's what you need to do, not tell us how desperately you've got to get on it. Other than that, it was really nice and well done.
7.9/10

A lot of judgement here is based on preference.... Should a video be shot down just because it is not done to your liking or preference?
I'd rather see the quality of the video and the how well the whole thing worked as a video rather than giving a story to tell. Not all videos need a story... especially with the first song... It was weird and I certainly did NOT like the lyrics.. It wasn't to my liking, but I have to admit that it WAS kind of funny. And the song has a catchy tune and overall, ignoring the lyrics it was good. It may not appeal to me... But whoever said it isn't appealing to others? Not that I'm voting for it though. Just putting it out there that I'm going to make a judgement by quality and not preference.

I touched on this in my first post.
SpoilerShow
Can a song make or break a video?
Yes, but it won't be because the song is good is bad, but how well it matches the video.
(exception: if it's someone doing a cover, different criteria applies)

And with my review of the Spice and Wolf video,
I touched on the fact that it showed a lot of depth and focus even though there was not really a story in there per say
overall, you either choose to vote for quality, or for your enjoyment/entertainment

I totally agree. As much as I don't want to admit that sometimes the things you like are not better. I won't deny different people have different preferences. Which is why such a voting is opened so more people can make a fairer judgement. I can't wait for the next group of videos though. I'm lacking in nice AMVs to watch.

Acid Tech seems fine now, there were problems with it before. I've been using it since I joined and had some problems then, but it's been cleared up since.
Maybe they just haven't gotten to all of the skins?

Voted for:
3. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Implosion AMVShow
I liked how the darker atmosphere of both the song and the scenes highlighted the not-so-bright side of the Raildex series.
4. Spanish Wolf (Spice and Wolf AMV)Show
The song really fit well with the dynamics between Holo and Lawrence.
5. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ Metamorphose AMVShow
I know absolutely nothing about Ao no Exorcist but I thought the music fit the various images rather well.
8. √Bestamvsofalltime ▪ My Sassy Girl(s) AMVShow
Three good series featuring hard-to-handle female characters. I've been a BoA fan since InuYasha introduced her to me about 10 years ago. I haven't kept up with any of her music (or any other JPop/JRock) for the last few years, and it was nice hearing her sing again.
I also liked:
10. Amv - Imagination 720pShow
I liked the quasi-surrealistic style of images and music here.
