So I wanted to get something posted today that wasn’t just Housekeeping around the blog. Since I’m a stretched a little thin today, I headed to my Youtube favorites looking for an AMV. I was feeling slightly disappointed until I hit the end of my list. I had completely forgotten about the romantic videos I’d stashed away ages ago.
This AMV is done to the song “I Will Carry You” by Clay Aiken. Now, let’s forget about it being Clay Aiken if that puts you off — because this video is AMAZING. The anime used is この醜くも美しい世界 (Kono Minikuku mo Utsukushii Sekai) also known by it’s English title – This Ugly Yet Beautiful World.
What’s important about this video, however, is that even if you don’t know the song or the anime, you can appreciate the story it’s telling. It really is a wonderful story — a tale of difficult love and loyalty. Watch and you’ll understand.
Some other interesting information about this AMV. Created by MeliChan923 (at least, that’s the Youtube name), it has been very successful in many Convention AMV contests. The following is the information given on the Youtube page about the video:
- Anime Boston 2009 – Romance Finalist
