I've supplied one video on the front page that sums up most of 2007. Not all the best parts mind you but it should serve for folks to get the idea. If you wish to compete I'd glad you supply with you more OR you can simply youtube Walkoff "Anime Evolution" 2006-2008 and you'll find so many videos the internet can barely contain them.
If you apply as a contestant I'd gladly go over the rules in more detail with you.
