The Japanese term "MAD" videos represent a super-set of what's called "anime music videos" in North America. Parodies, remixes, reanimation, juxtapositions, and theme compilation are also included under the fan video heading. A new MAD tribute to the anime from studio Shaft has rocketed to the top of video site Nico Nico Douga's anime category with almost a quarter million views in two days.
Japan's Tower Records revealed that anime studio Shaft and director Akiyuki Shinbo (Madoka Magica, Monogatari) have been attached to a project inspired by vocaloid producer's Jin (aka Shizen no Teki-P) Kagerou Project (Heat-Haze Project). The anime will share the name of Jin's first album, Mekakucity Actors. Hinting at the format, they say that the airing date hasn't been decided. More after the jump.
