AMV of the Week Anime Girl Empire

Just to end my series of posts about anime heroines’ I have this AMV show-casing some of the best girls anime has created. Okay so I didn’t mention many of the ones in this video but I figure my list contained all of the most striking and interesting examples I have encountered.

Anyway the AMV offers a history of anime girls from 80’s/90’s and early 2000’s stuff like Gunsmith Cats, Noir, Azumanga Daioh, Armitage, Full Metal Panic, Black Lagoon, Blue Gender, Sailor Moon, Dominion Tank Police, Escaflowne, Ghost in the Shell, Perfect Blue, Dead or Alive 4 Cardcaptor Sakura, Ninja Scroll, Slayers, Soul Eater, Resident Evil videogames.

The AMV is excellently done. Music is unobtrusive and fits well, flowing the with action, dancing and transformation sequences (henshin a-go-go baby!… or should that be METAMORPHOSE!). I like the editing which overlays various anime together bringing together every trend seen in anime (as you can imagine, lots of magic, transformation, pantsu, moe, tsundere and what not) and the fact that so much content has been pared down to bring so many action sequences together shows a remarkable dedication.

Whatever complaints I may have about the way girls are portrayed in anime like Highschool of the Dead, many anime girls are probably the most likeable and exciting characters in any medium out there.
