Originally, this was going to be a Thor AMV post because I saw the movie on Friday night and I actually stayed up after watching it, looking for AMVs but none were to my liking. So I went with another T name. Taking Back Sunday, one of my favorite bands. The first video is a Naruto AMV that is well mixed with the “MakeDamSure” video. Second video, is the video for their new single “El Paso” from Taking Back Sunday that is out on June 28.
This will be a new section that will hopefully be posted every Saturday. Like its given name, it will contain a video from a rock and sub-genre artist/band and an AMV (if available) from the band. Here is Rocking Saturday 1.

Let’s kick my return with one of my favorite songs by Lacuna Coil, “Falling Again.” Yes, I know it’s easily confused with “Falling” and why wouldn’t it since the lyrics are almost identical. It’s the one I’m used to listening to so I prefer it. The AMV is Samurai X which is the American film version of Rurouni Kenshin. So yes, the characters look different but it is Kenshin. Rurouni Kenshin is one of my fave animes and manga so hope you like the video.
Code Geass is one of the best anime ever created. It’s so intense and the complexity is amazingly mind-numbing. If Death Note is a series you like, then Code Geass is for you. I’m reminded of Light whenever I see Lelouch and his plans to create a better for Nunally. Both have the aid of a supernatural being; Ryuk in Death Note and C.C. in Code Geass. Ryuk has an obsession with apples and C.C. is pizza. In both series, the antagonist knows who the other is but without solid proof, neither moves forward. L and Suzaku. Unfortunately, only Lelouch manages to complete his ultimate goal while Light doesn’t. It’s not the point I’m trying to make. As much as I love Code Geass and Death Note, I love Batman. (As the new posts will show). Batman is so outstanding to me and to me, the ultimate superhero because he doesn’t rely on powers but rather on basic human skills refine to a point of no return. Searching for AMV on Youtube, I stumbled (like I do for everything) upon The Dark Knight trailer voice-over Code Geass and it fits perfectly. Lelouch as The Joker and Suzaku as Batman. It’s perfectly done. Give props to Arczi as he is the editor.
