Do you think they are bad for anime creators? Do you watch them to decide to watch that anime? Do you think they are helpful?

Rules: Respect everyones opinion even if you don't agree with them so no name calling!

If they are done well, It seem like a great way to introduce people to new anime they would not have previously known about.

Considering an AMV got me into anime in the first place, it's probably fair to say I like them quite a bit.

Do you think they are bad for anime creators? If they're created well and a good chosen song then yes, because it brings interests to people who have never seen it and could get the anime well known.
Do you watch them to decide to watch that anime? If it's like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ1DlJxsUg8 then yes
Do you think they are helpful? Sometimes

I like them. There are so many to all sorts of series (but not such a wide variety of music... ) but if you find a good one it can remind you of the best bits of an anime you like, make you look at a show in a different way...or just introduce you to something new entirely.

Pretty sure I eventually watched Madoka because of an excellent AMV. No matter how my opinion on the series has changed, this is fantastic. (Spoilers. Doesn't make much sense without context, but stil...spoilers)

I enjoy watching htem and I even watch them to decide if I want to see the anime and i'm even making some of my own now but I just wanted to see how the community thinks of it and if it's seen in a positive or negative way as in negative is that it is using anime content another person made so it's considered copyright but I think if yo give them credit it actually helps them out but that's my opinion.

I don't really care about them...I'm more of a music guy than a Music video guy.

The worst thing I could imagine an AMV doing to a series is associating it with subject matter which somehow substantively damages its marketability. For example, an AMV establishing an association between adult themes and an anime targeted at preschoolers might prove damaging for that series' marketability if those preschoolers' parents catch wind of it. Moral panics have been built on far weaker foundations than that, so it's not inconceivable (though unlikely).

What sort of harm did you have in mind? Use of intellectual property without permission?

I love AMVs. At worst they might contain spoilers so I can see how they'd be bad in that respect, but other than that, if anything, I think they help the creators. On Youtube you always get people saying 'Oh, at however far in, what anime is that?' and as such it encourages them to watch said show and support it. I visit TheBestAMVsOfAllTime's channel from time to time to see if he/she has found anything good and uploaded it.

They got made me go from mainstream english dubbed Anime to moe spoken-Japanese Anime. I'm really thankful for them, and they're definitely great PVs for a series. Only bad point would be the abundance of spoilers, which it's the reason I avoid watching them unless either I've already watch the series, or it's composed of a compilation of scenes from different series.

Also, since I'm so biased and listen to nothing but Japanese music and Anime OSTs, I only watch MADs rather than AMVs. (Same thing, but having different names for ones Japanese and western ones makes things easier).

I think that many anime music videos are helpful to their anime. I prefer the theme music videos the most because it gives a better clue to what the anime is about, but other than that I've only seen a handful and can't really comment on it.
