The Greatest AMV Ever. Bar None.

I hear you now, gentle reader: "The greatest AMV ever?  That's quite the claim, Wonderduck."  To which I reply, "who are you and how did you get in here?"

Nevertheless, I stand by my assertion.  Reader haunter103 called my attention to his AMV, entitled "Good Clean Fun", and asked if I had seen it.  I had not, so I decided to take a look at it.  Here it is...

By the time it was over, there were tears running down my face.  Tears of joy, and, surprisingly, tears of pride as well.  For there, listed at the end of the credits sequence, is Wonderduck's Pond, specifically the "Ducks In Anime" category.

Thank you, haunter103.  Thank you for letting me be a small part of your accomplishment.  It's a good video, and I'd think so even if I didn't love rubber ducks.  However, the ducks just push it into the "godlike" category.

That was fun as all get-out!

UPDATE: If you've stopped by due to Robert's weekly newsletter, hi, hello and welcome!  Hope you enjoy haunter103's video, and while you're here, why not take a look at the rest of The Pond?  Since you're probably an anime fan, you might particularly enjoy the "Anime Writeups" category, where I do episode-by-episode recaps of entire series... usually, at least.  Currently Kantai Collection is the show under the microscope, but Ga-Rei Zero, Rio Rainbow Gate!, Vividred Operation, High School of the Dead, and others have had the dubious pleasure of being a target.  Or, of course, you can cock an eye at the Ducks in Anime category, too, because... well, because ducks, that's why.  Or anything else that meets your fancy, too, feel free to look around!

6 For years, we have called my younger sister "Duck" (to her dismay). I thought it was enough to've discovered Princess Tutu's existence, but this...this is rapture. It just keeps unfolding into something truly wondrous!

7 Hey, you didn't mention Ben-to!, which was my favorite writeup (after Rio)!

8 I was hoping you'd enjoying it. I got the impression you like anime ducks.
Thanks to you for creating a blog that so uniquely served the purposes of my amv. I found you site a little over halfway through completion of it. I was gearing up to start filling out the big chorus scenes with as many ducks I could find, so I googled "anime ducks". I wasn't prepared to find an entire blog dedicated to the subject.
I suddenly had a lot more work to do, but I was glad that my final vid would be more complete in it's duck references. I couldn't not give your blog a special thanks afterwards. Also, these days it's hard for me not to perk up when I see ducks in current anime.
Cheers -haunter103
