Short for Anime Music Video made by splicing anime clips to compile them together and publish. Depending on said anime, the video will generally be made by:

1. A glomping fangirl who wish to dedicate their love to their favorite anime character through video

2. A small child who thinks just slapping random Pokémon clips to Linkin Park makes it über-cool (which is wrong in many ways)

3. A casual video editor who puts some average time (and even a little bit money at times) into a normal, fan-made video featuring their favorite music

4. A contest fanatic who still remains behind the border of average anime fandom that puts a great amount of time into the process
"Hey dude, I made an AMV and stuck it up on YouTube last night."
"Nice. I'll be sure to check it out later."

stands for anime music video. annoying videos that infest youtube. basically clips from anime's put to music (a large ammount of which are Linkin Park). These stupid videos make it very difficult to find anime series without digging through pages of stupid amv's first. Especially when they don't lable them as AMV's
Guy 1: Hey, did you find that episode where Gohan goes SS2 yet?
Guy 2: Nah
Guy 1: What about all of those?
Guy 2: Those are those faggot ass AMV's
Guy 1: There! That one doesn't say AMV on it! Click it.
AMV: I'm breaking the habbit tonight!
Guy 1 and 2: Dammit man! Por la gran puchica!

Short for anime music video. Created by splicing together a song and clips from an anime series together to create a video. Identifiable by their big file size.
If you watch too many AMVs, you are stupid. But a few is ok. Like me. ^_^

An AMV is acronim for "Anime Music Video" It is when an anime fan, takes clips of their favorite anime and mash them together cleverly, putting it to music. A good AMV consists of nice timing, a good, fitting song, clear, vivid clips, and an author/creators note on what song was used, if the viewers so wish to look up the song if they like it. Many people have stated that the are stupid videos, with only Linkin Park for crappy music. This statement is false. It uses many bands, singers and even rappers. They can express various emotions such as sadness, happiness, anxiousness, grief, and many others.
A very well put together, elite AMV, is "This is War-30 seconds to Mars- Fullmetal Alchenist AMV (FULL)" It evokes tears of happiness, for those who have watched the series and have seen shat both the main characters have gone through. It holds spoilers for the end of the series, "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brothehood", so it would be wise not to watch it if you have not een it all.

The virus that is infecting youtube. Stands for "Anime Music Video" and is made my obssesed anime losers who have nothing better to do with themselves. Most of the time they are made with linkin park songs,(usually in the end or some other shit made by them -.-) or some annoying low budget song from smackdown vs raw. Good luck finding your favorite anime moment, cuz chances are its an AMV. Happy hunting! =)
person 1: "I wanna watch goku go ss1 for the first time!"

person 2: "Yeah me too!" *clicks video"

"IN THE END!!!!!!!"

person 1 and person 2: FUCKING AMV'S!
