The Great Anime Music Video Face-Off

I know very little about anime, but I've noticed an increasing number of Anime Music Videos on YouTube, and some of them are rather good.

Here's one for the song "Grace Cathedral Hill", written by Colin Meloy, author of the 33 1/3 volume on the Replacements' Let It Be.

And here's another, for "There Goes the Sun", written by Joe Pernice, author of the 33 1/3 volume on the Smiths' Meat Is Murder. (Joe's currently working on his first full-length novel, which I'm looking forward to greatly.)

Anybody know anything about this trend?

You should check out Daft Punk - Interstella 5555 which is a whole anime movie set to the Discovery album.

fyi, fanvids (which is what they are called, and they are made for live action shows too) aren't really a "trend", as they've been around for ages and aren't really going anywhere.
