Once again wandering around YouTube, I came across an interesting AMV… The beautiful and haunting “Lonely Feather” (from Asterisk War / Gakusen Toshi Asterisk) used for an AMV for Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso).
Hit the jump to check it out!
From what I’ve seen, it’s pretty unusual to use a song from one anime as the background for an AMV for another… In this case, it’s a good fit.
A nice selection of images and scenes from the anime, decently fit to the words and feelings of the song… The ending is particularly well done. It was probably to avoid the copyright bots on YouTube, but the speeding up of the middle portion is a bit unfortunate.
For reference this is the original version, at the original tempo.

That is a good combo. Course I never watched Asterisk War, but I know YLIA and that song does go well with it. Thanks for sharing!
On the topic of an AMV for one anime using a song from another anime, did you ever see the Yuki Yuna AMV that uses the OP song from One Punch Man? That was another combo that worked surprisingly well.

You’re welcome! And unless you have a particular fondness for battle royale anime and overpowered MC’s, you didn’t miss much by skipping Asterisk. :)
Yah, I’ve seen that one. And the Non Non Byori/OPM AMV. I’ve been meaning to feature them on an AMV post for half of forever, but keep forgetting.
