Intro to AMVs
AMVs are a vital section of fanart that everyone can get involved with. Be it creator or viewer, AMVs help to express love for anime, games, and other forms of animation by setting them a new mood or providing a new outlook not seen before. Creators find new and unique ways to provide fanart by highlighting the work in it's original form, and therefore molding it into a new, standalone work of their own. Fanart panels are very important to encourage new creators and to spread the word on a world in which anyone can strut their talent.

Metal Gear: Outside the Box
A Metal Gear panel, featuring all the clones, mechs, vampires, conspiracies and one-eyed dogs that we know and love. As you can probably guess, we’ll be delving a fair bit into the weirder side of Metal Gear lore, as well as probing the mind of the series’ enigmatic creator. If you’re looking for a mix of hard-boiled spy thrills and geriatric half-tree assassins, this might just be the panel for you.
