Best Action What should win: Bimyou - A Real Hero Upbeat, fun, positive, hopeful vibes that reflect the spirit of My Hero Academia without overdoing the generic "epic" feel that everyone reaches for with their videos for this series. Solid editing (the most subjective and meaningless praise you can give any AMV, sorry), character-focused concept, who knows how this will age (I probably felt this way about a lot of Naruto AMVs back in the day) but I'm enjoying it a lot for now. VideoBeats - A Shared Path Did nobody even nominate this for best instrumental? I know that's a category "no one cares about" but it's one I'm always really interested in and it's just conspicuously missing there. Shin - Cherry Bomb Not sure if this does anything new with Kill La Kill but it's got that fluid quality to it that I really love and I wouldn't mind seeing it take this. What will win: Echo STK - Kampa People love videos like this, the concept of people fighting (framed by text like "Round One," "Last Round," etc to keep it from looking too random) is usually all you need to convince the audience that you're actually telling a story. This kind of dark and gritty feel is usually rewarded in contests and is everything that most aspiring editors are looking to replicate. Luciole - Warm Up I should have nominated a sports AMV or two for this category but got hung up on whether or not they were really supposed to go here. That was dumb of me. Anyway, I hate this AMV and feel like it's a shoe-in to win here.
