Anime Detour 2017 AMV Contest – Finalists and Winners

Hi all. As some of you know, I run the AMV contest at my local anime convention, Anime Detour. I’m posting the list of finalists and the results here in order to have them in a public place (many popular AMV forums require registration to access the posts, which makes it difficult for those who are less interested/passionate about the fandom).

We had a ton of great submissions this year, and I had to narrow things down to about 1/3 of the total entries (not an easy job).
