AMV Room

If you like watching AMV's, then we’ve got you covered all weekend long! This year we are bringing you the world of AMV's non-stop from Friday through Sunday in Animethon’s very own dedicated AMV Room! With the largest high-quality Anime Music Video digital archive at its disposal, the AMV Room features many different blocks and themes to keep you entertained for the entire weekend.

Programming highlights:

AMV Category Courtroom
Some AMVs are really hard to categorize! Think you can do better? Join us as we show some of the toughest AMVs Contest coordinators have ever had to sort. For each video, we’ll recruit a group of “Category Lawyers” from the audience to make a case for what category it belongs in. YOU are the jury!

A Gameshow build around AMVs returns for more competitive action. Yes, we have prizes and the chance to become the AMV 2019 Gameshow Champion!

AMVs That Made Us Buy the Anime
