The resulting videos from the EXTREME Iron Editor competition at Another Anime Con 2009.

It was a tag-team match between the Green Team (LantisEscudo & inthesto) and the Blue Team (Kiarrens & OtakuForLife).

The full details of the competition, including the tortures visited upon the editors by dokool and BasharOfTheAges:

*Extreme Challenge Summary*

First Source Revealed: Demonbane

Steady Hands – Alts are forced to play Operation with an eye-patch on until someone gets 3 pieces. (arm weights were, sadly, missing)

Winner – inthesto

Hypothermia Challenge – Both alts plunge their hands into ice water and keep them there. First to remove a hand loses. (this lasted 20 minutes, and resulted in 4 emptied cans of silly string as well as possible nerve damage. We forced them to switch off with their partners and immediately start editing.)

Winner – tie.

Second Source Revealed: Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight

On The Hunt – Alts are given a camera and a scavenger hunt list of cosplayers, staffers, and Guests and 20 min to take as many pictures as they can.

Winner – Kiarrens (but points were awarded per picture anyways)

Nice Boat Balloon Pop – Alts are presented with a pile of balloons – each of which has a piece of paper in it. All have phrases on them the alt has to call out after reading, until they find the correct one – Nice Boat! – The first one done wins.

Winner – Otaku4Life

Third Source Revealed: “Nice Boat” episode of School Days

One Ring To Bind Them
A) Alts must find the hidden box with their color on it (on Bashar’s Car) and return it to main stage.

*Lantis docked 20pts for unsportsmanlike conduct in taking both boxes, leaving otaku4life confused in the parking lot for 20 min.

B) Inside this box is a hello kitty lip-gloss ring locked by a pad lock. The keys to the padlocks are at the bottom of a vat of shaving cream. First to Unlock their box, wins part B.

Winner – Otaku4life

Final Source Revealed: The Hobbit (Rankin-Bass’s 1979 version)

A Little Trivia While We Render – A Little Retrospect is played. All editors name the AMVs used – 2 pts a piece.

*no real winner – just awarded points until we were done*
