So a few days ago @HeliosAlpha posted a few Clannad AMVs on discord, and I really liked both. Both also have heavy Clannad spoilers, so only view 'em if you have already either read the VN or watched the anime.
First, there’s Terrible Things.
(Both spoilers for Clannad and the AMV linked above, so if you wanna watch it first, do that) I really like the small details in this one, there’s the scene changes with each measure, especially in the parts without singing, and then also when the singing gets more fierce in the end, the fading cuts that were used throughout the video are replaced with more abrupt cuts. Espeacially in the second verse scenes are also chosen matching the lyrics, which is always something I like, and the song itself also matches Tomoya’s and Nagisa’s relationship, as there are just a lot of bad things happening to the two, yet their love to each other persists.
And second, Lucy.
(Again, AMV and Clannad spoilers) I have actually less to say about this one. Cuts and other video editing is more active in this one, matching the more active song. For me, this song felt more distant from Nagisa’s death that both AMVs are basically covering even though the lyrics say “Now that it’s over” suggesting the end only happening very recently. I think that’s because the singer feels like he already accepted the loss, whereas in the other song it has more an air of not knowing how to deal with it. It’s hard to put into words.
So yeah, both great AMVs. Thanks for sharing.
