Like the Tales series? Love editing amazing videos? Submit your Tales AMVs to Aselia Con’s AMV Contest!
Categories For Entry
The action category should be videos that focus more on action/fighting/intense themes and sequences.
The drama category may includes romance, tragedy, or any genre that focus primarily on emotional themes.
The comedy category may include parody videos, “crack” videos, funny song covers, any meant to illicit humorous reactions.
