My parents got a new puppy yesterday, a female Jack Russell terrier. They have another one named Lucy, who's named after the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." This new one is named Ellie, after "Eleanor Rigby." I think it's time for a Beatles-themed AMV recommendation column!
Food as Reflection of Soul (Long Artistic Title) by Zephyrstar
This AMV has been one of my favorites for a while. Honey and Clover is a great anime that follows a group of art students through their college days and afterwards as they navigate their personal growth and romantic relationships. They also eat a whole ton of food, as this AMV demonstrates. I find it amusing, and I, of course, like the song.
Fullmetal Lane by Hagaren Viper (Hagaren Studios)
This is about what it sounds like - the editor uses scenes and characters from the series Fullmetal Alchemist to parody those sung about in the song "Penny Lane." It's a fun, light-hearted peace where oft-parodied characters get their time in the spotlight.
Hey Haruka by Johan Peacecraft Rodrigue (Star Studios)
I'm sort of surprised that this AMV works as well as it does, but there you go. It's a Sailor Moon AMV that focuses on Haruka and Michiru's relationship, through Haruka's point of view. My only complaints are regarding the video quality, which varies between "okay" and "nearly-unwatchable," but it's from 2002 so you can't really ask for much. The story is there, and that's what's really important.
Her Majesty by anneke (Baka Deshi Productions!)
A very short AMV about Marie Antoinette from Rose of Versailles. Yup.
In Kenshin's Life by obh04 (Nirro Production)
A very sentimental AMV set to the Rurouni Kenshin OVA. This is one of those OVAs that I saw after having seen maybe a few episodes of the TV series, and it still registered as very easy to connect with, and this AMV captures that well.
Hmm, seems like I might have enough AMVs for a second week's worth of Beatles fun. Stay tuned for more.
