Favorite Lupin III AMVs
« on: March 13, 2009, 02:23:01 pm »
So I was just wondering (and I guess this is the right place to put it?) if anybody has any favorite Lupin III AMVs (Anime Music Videos) that they'd like to share.  They don't have to be your own work, just ones that you've seen and found interesting.

Here's just a few of my favorites.

Here It Goes Again, Lupin!  (Zenigata AMV)

Okay, I swear that's it.   ;D  This isn't all of my favorite Lupin AMVs but I figured this would be an interesting thread to make and see what other people might think of as their favorite Lupin video.  I know some people favor good editing choices as opposed to having good music choices and I know that others like to tell stories with the songs and images rather than just have mindless images with some hit song of the day.  I'll be looking forward to seeing what other people post.  ^-^  But uh...if this thread isn't allow you all can lock or delete it or do whatever it is that you admins here do.

I had completly forgotten about "Matte, Lupin!" since it disappeared from my favorites on youtube for some reason.

Hey Arsene !!!

There used to be (on youtube) an AMV that was Cagliostro and Mamo clips set to Queen's Loverboy. That is my all time favorite.

Stumbled upon this, I love Tenacious D and it follows their song perfectly with clips uniquely from Mamo :

A Green vs. Red AMV set to the 2nd Italian opening theme.

Another well-edited Green vs. Red AMV:

【MAD】黒神ルパン三世 (lupan the third-Sympathizer-)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsGk_jLaDik&feature=related

Going off-topic, I prefer edit-heavy videos to good music set to a large chunks of the movie/special/etc. Edit-heavy videos lets lots of people make a video using the same scene without it getting stale. For example, there are so many Hellsing videos that use the entire Alucard vs. Anderson fight in episode 3--at least ten times--X__X I mean, yeah it's a 13-episode series, but at least take half  or less of the fight scene instead of dragging it out--or use the other fight scene in episode 7. Thankfully, with so many episodes/specials/movies to choose from, Lupin doesn't have that problem--yet. If anyone in the future is going to make an AMV from Fuma Conspiracy, the scene where Lupin and Jigen look behind them and see a billion police cars has been used quite a few times already, along with large chunks from the Fuma chase scene in general.  So has the scene from First Contact where Lupin and Jigen shoot simultaneously. Another popular  scene is the Green vs. Red opening--the 30? mugshots all the way through the hundreds of split-screens that show Lupin and Yasuo.(25 seconds!!) (The above videos, however, show only part of the whole scene, keeping it fresh.   I'm not saying using an entire scene over and over again is an awful thing: there are a lot of classic moments that deserve to be revisited over and over again, but please, not as much as the Anderson and Alucard fight scene in which the entire scene or a big cunk of it is used in every other AMV.... Oo;;;

Wow, fav Lupin AMVs....

Sad thing is, most of my favs were made a long time ago when Youtube first showed up. So now, since some of them have been removed, I can't find them all. But, here were one of my favs from back then:

The Smooth Criminal Lupin amv: I know it's still there, but they tried to take it down once.

Lupin and Fujiko: She's Always a Woman To Me - Probably the best and well developed Lupin amv I've ever seen based on Fujiko's personality. The song is the same as the title above, but it points out everything that Lupin knows about Fujiko from his point of view in so many ways! Especially how she can sometimes be a bit cruel to him, but no matter what anybody says or what she does, "She's always a woman" to him. I hope they re-upload it someday because it was so beautiful and so inspiring that it motivated me into wanting to do my first Lupin AMV. If you guys can find it, I definitely recommend this one.

The song that was used: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRocZbuvKXw

Lupin the 3rd, First Contact: Gangsta's Paradise - Sadly, another lost gem. This is how I got introduced to the awesome Lupin TV Special while I was still finding out about Lupin at the time. It got removed off of Youtube a year after I joined, but it was so awesome how the creator synced the song and clips together and it strangely went with everything! When I hear a song like that, I wouldn't think it would make it think of Lupin. But ever since then, I keep playing that amv in my mind everytime that song pops up. lol!

For those who may want to know what the song is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oU_F0yS-Bo

Also....

Just about anything from Sad Cactus  ;D. But, if I had to choose the most memorable for me, it'd be these two:

Lupin the 3rd - International Man of Mystery: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJnWkRQ7Vz4

Lupin Brain Fart: "Sky Blue Days" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tq-9MmQXJo0 (I mean, anybody who can take Gurran Lagann's opening and combine it w/ Lupin like that is awesome in my book!^^)
