I AM STILL WAITING FOR THIS GOD DAMN MOVIE! Since there is no news on its cancellation either…THIS BETTER BE THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN! Fucking script writer and her dumb cancer (that was mean I know.) She might as well hand the pen over to someone else. I’m sure they’ll be just as incompetent. If anybody finds out a tentative date, that would make me a lot happier.

Of course I start of with a music post.
A remix of a touhou song by CleanTears. What’s there not to love about this song? Its ambience is perfect for repetition. Like one of the comments stated, the piano is main attraction to the remix, but the bass lines is truly deserving a mention. The beats are a wonderful addition. The theme is wonderfully developed by messing with textures and rhythms; thus, tastefully keeping the song fresh. Don’t forget the awesome background image used in the video!
I don’t think I’m the only one when I say it’s been a long time since I’ve heard or seen Nami Tamaki, the artist who performs the song Reason. Back in the day when Gundam SEED was still around, she was pretty big! I remembered how much I enjoyed her variety of jpop and how ambitious she was to dance and sing at the same time. . Most of the time she wasn’t successful, not that I was shocked. Then this video came along. This is her live performance at the ANIMAX MUSIC FALL 2010 concert; it is amazing. Nami really has improved significantly since the last live video I saw of her. I’m also quite surprised that they had this song in the concert set list to begin with. Must have been really popular. But I’m glad cause this song is also one of my favourite songs from the Gundam SEED series.
YAH! ANOTHER SUPERCELL SONG! It’s another ballad, following closely to the sound of Hero and Utakata Hanabi (their last two song releases.) Supercell is also releasing a new album called Today is a Beautiful Day on March 16, 2011. Very exciting! Back to perfect day, it is a great song. Good balance between instruments and progression. I like how the beginning starts with acoustic guitar before all the other instruments come in at the chorus. Nagi’s vocal transition from soft to powerful is very commendable. She has a great voice and I really enjoy listening to her. This song has an schematic animated PV (not too sure who it’s done by.) I’m assuming the plot behind it is that two friends are torn apart due to anxiety from their expected separation, but then make ammends in the end. Animation is well done, and the art style is pretty so I’m not going to complain about how overdone plot oriented PVs. At least it isn’t the band playing animated or live!
Is that…perfume feat. tegomass?! I’m a little scared that they can sing that high, but it’s super awesome to hear this being actually sung instead of autotuned. I would have prefered if Home Made Kazoku actually participated more than just shouting words. The tegomass x AKB48 x Home Made Kazoku combination is still pretty epic. Overall, good acoustic arrangment of the song.
Clearly I need to post this song since I’m on a Madoka obsession. Kalafina’s impressive vocals really shine in this performance. Their strong points is the power that carries with their voice, and the execution of their individual parts to create great harmonies. It really brings out their unique sound. I will admit, this isn’t their best song. But it is still worth mentioning. What really strikes as interesting other than the obvious: the lyrics fit very well to the atmosphere of the anime (since this is the ending theme of Madoka.) Which is contrary to most animes that just throw animation to a pop song. I think that’s the difference when you get great composers like Yuki Kajiura to be incharge of the music.
Anyway, that’s all I have…FOR NOW! You never know, by the end of the day I might have 5 more songs I want to share D:

Gundam 00 was a copy of Gundam Wing, but I take that back. Giant super space ray of mass destruction, and characters being transported into naked dream land are clearly characteristics of Gundam SEED. CLEARLY.
No screencaps because one, it is spoiler. Two, you really want to be apart of the group that got transported into naked dream land *cough*

Last post was actually very well timed because in IDC-education for a changing world we are discussing whether education is good, does content matter, and facts. It’s unfortunate that my opinion doesn’t really fit in with the overall discussion people set onto the table. But then again…the topics aren’t really my cup of tea. Which explains the absent of my voice during table discussions.
Code Geass R2 is the equivalent of Gundam SEED DESTINY. Equivalent in the sense that it got raped by the scripted writer. Though I’ll forgive the guy who wrote Code Geass because the time slot wouldn’t allow him to show everyone what should be Code Geass. (For those of you who don’t know, it is rumored that because the script writer of Gundam SEED DESTINY did not like the voice actors for Cagalli and Shinn, she screwed with the plot. But then again, Gundam SEED was good…)
OMG GUNDAM 00 S2!
Tales of Vesperia is a very good JRPG and is personally one of the better of the Tales of…installment. For one, there’s more depth. In Tales of Symphonia, the concepts and common sense of the worlds weren’t clearly elaborated, and I feel in Tales of Abyss they were thrown at you at break neck speed as an attempt to clear Luke’s ignorance to the world. In Tales of Vesperia, the information needed just comes naturally I feel. The artwork of the game is gorgeous, and animated really well. The opening theme song’s lyrics are pure genius, and it’s nice that the North American released version gets and English version of the song, instead of the song’s instrumental or dubbed over by something else. The background music works well with the scenes and the overall feel of the game. Though the songs do feel a bit recycled from previous Tales of…games. Gameplay is done well, despite having Japanese button controls (A which is usually X on the PS2 and PS3 is exit instead of enter, and B which is usually the O is the confirm, or X button.) The most interesting aspect of the game for me is the main character Yuri. He is unlike any main hero. Not following the emo, angsty, or the brave knightly prince characteristics of main character hero. Oh, and the fact that you can play as a dog. All the characters in Tales of Vesperia are interesting. Estelle is a princess who likes reading books and knows many things because she reads so much, but is very innocent as well. Rita is a tsundre bitch who is a researcher and as a lot of attitude. Then there’s Flynn who is a Guy look alike, without his phobia for females (which is sad because I loved Guy because he was so freaked out about girls). The villains of the game are also intriguing such as Zagi, who is crazy in a psychotic “I want to kill you” sense, and Yeager who says “ja!” a lot. Overall, great game want to finish it.
I finally finished .hack//G.U Vol 3 (basically ending the entire series.) The only complaint I have is that if Haseo got his duel guns earlier in the game instead of the last quarter because Haseo’s Xth form is <3. Oh and the other complaint I have is that whoever designed Haseo’s Xth form, should have gotten rid of those dishes on his ass, cause it makes his ass look wide. Not that Endurance minds cause he’s gay for Haseo’s love.
Tokyo Game Show is coming soon, and I’m excited for all the Kingdom Hearts announcements.
That’s all for today.
