America's National Public Radio reported on the popularity of anime music videos in general and the Iron Editor Challenge competition at Otakon 2007. The Iron Chef-inspired competition at the July 20-22 event pitted a challenger, Jeff "Gambit" Heller, against last year's winner, Brad "AtomX" Backofen, with two computers and two hours to edit a complete music video based on a "secret ingredient." Thanks, Ed Krawczak. Update: Bryce Winant of JMI Productions replaced Backofen, who was unable to attend Otakon. Thanks, MeriToT.
