What I immediately noticed was that the quality of video seemed low. I'm not sure if this is youtube's fault or the footage that you used. But if you are going to submit it to a con, I would definitely find some high quality footage if its not youtube.
I assume the theme you were going for in the video was a journey as it seemed to go further and further into the series the more you watched and ultimately ended at the end of the series. The song was nice to accompany this and you kept a lot of the action scenes out that would just be awkward to show to a softer song. Or rather I feel you used just enough to maintain interest without spoiling the softness that the song portrayed.
The overlaying of scenes on top of each other got annoying at points. They also seemed to serve no real purpose. I couldn't tell why this was happening other than using effects for the sake of using effects. You are trying to create a nice, soft, drama video. Effects should be limited and not used unless they can help tell the story you are trying to tell better. Not to say all the effects were bad. I did enjoy the face in the clouds toward the mid point I believe of the video. It didn't distract from what you were seeing on screen and it does add a little something to the video.
Overall its not a bad video. Theres definitely stuff I would rework before submitting it. Also just messing with stuff to make it look more crisp and cleaner overall. Especially if you are going to use effects. If they stand out and are very obvious that they don't belong, it takes away from the video visually. With great effects, it should look like this is just a scene from the anime and you did nothing to it.
