Magic Pad was an exclusive AMV made for the Japan Expo 2007 AMV contest (1st best video). I was looking for new pretty anime to work with and I managed to get myself a nice collection for a multi-anime dance AMV. Pretty pictures with boom-boom music.
This is the AMV that made me really popular as an AMV maker. Magic Pad was ranked 2nd in animemusicvideos.org 2007 top 10% and it is still today ranked 11th at the all years top 10%.
Special thanks to KenLaden who offered a 1080p AI upscaled version which looks amazing considering how old and SD the source footage was.

I must say that I barely know or don’t know about a half of those anime. I simply saw nice pictures and decided to use them. The idea was to give a specific style by playing on colors and atmosphere. I used a lot of OP/ED because this is where you find the best footage with dynamic cameras but sometimes you get credits and removing them can take a long time when it’s not impossible.
