My personal taste is usually the Upbeat, Fun Comedy, and Other categories. This year however, the Action category was the star. Congrats to all.

The ones I just viewed can actually already be found on Youtube/Google. I just had to rewatch The Fangirl Chronicle, it was too good!

Thanks for that, do you guys have "The Pheonix" remix with Soul Eater. I havn't seen that and it was the star of the show. If you could upload it I'd be extremely grateful :)

Here's "A boy in funny red boots" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51cssqUYMC0
I just want to say that I very much enjoyed this experience. It was fun, the other editors were great to talk to, and it was all very encouraging. I'm seriously considering doing this again next year.

I feel like that would open up a whole can of worms...people will then dispute any results, such as the winners of the contests and selections for the cosplay games, and it wouldn't be pretty.

Thank You ^__^ That was the plan. As was getting to mingle with the other editors. Brace yourself. If all goes well I may be back next year and I may bring Astro back with me XD
Were you one of the editors? My memory isn't always the greatest ^^;

Thank you to everyone who watched my video! This was probably the strongest contest I've ever seen. If anyone wants a link to mine ("Bleeding Heart Effect") or to give feedback, it's on YouTube here: http://youtu.be/fq_q_tZQGas
The audio is down now, but I'm hoping to re-upload with a pitched version.
