CORE PRIDE

I’ve gotta say, this is UVERworld’s best song to date. The saxaphone was a nice fresh touch to the instrumentation, but the bass is just really hot. Although the saxaphone only appears in the introductory theme (which then appears at least two or three more times in the song), it really is the main highlight rather than a minor transitional instrument. I also like the guitar chords going on. Overall, I gotta say the instrumentation in this song is just perfect. Also, unlike the song they did for the Gundam 00 movie Qualia (I think), the transitioning between themes is so smooth that the melodies just melt into the other. This song isn’t just some A and B on repeat: there’s epic instrumental bridge themes and even a C part. It’s got a lot of contrast with melodic movement. There is a balance between moving and stagnant vocal melodies, as well as harmonic movement in the instrumental parts. The lyrics are really well written this time around (either that or the translations I found at Gendou.com are FANTASTIC!) My favourite part is the last stanza:

まだまだ消えるな 心の火を
まだ忘れたくない 胸の熱さを
まだまだ消えるな 心の火を
まだまだ行けるぞ  行けるぞ

It just wraps the song nicely and I like the repetitive consanance.

Oh and I’m gonna say that Takuya is really hawt in the PV.

Anime OP/ED Spring 2011

April 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

New season is on its way, and there are a few awesome opening and ending credit themes that I wanna share. I haven’t seen a lot of the premier episodes for most of these, so I’m gonna keep comments minimal.

Deadman Wonderland ED -SHINY SHINY

Credits are kind of boring, but if anybody remembers Eureka Seven, then you’ll recognize the featured artist NIRGILIS.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai OP- Aoi Shiori

Very cute song. I like the timing of the video with the rhythmic intro and outro.

Steins;Gate ED – Toki Tsukasadoru Juuni no Meiyaku

Kind of evanecense ish…

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control OP- Matryoshka

Opening is pretty badass with the animation for the first half, then it gets boring. Reminds me of Eden of the East though.

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control ED- RPG

Like the ending A LOT more compared to the opening. Again, there is that Eden of the East similarity in animation, and even the ending artist is the same

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko OP- Os-Uchuujin

Song is fucktarded…really weird. Animation video is great though. SUPA TRIPPY!

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko ED – Ruru

Wah! This is super cute >w<

A-Channel OP- Morning Arch

Animation video is cute, and the song is cute too. Makes me want to watch this anime, even though I find the art a little weird…

A-Channel ED- Humming Girl

This song is also really cute. I just…don’t like the chorus. There’s way too many people singing D:

Nichijou OP- Hyadain no Kakakata☆Kataomoi-C

SUPER UPBEAT OPENING! I like. I think Nichijou has the two bests themes this season. Gahhhhh!

Nichijou ED -Zzz

I say…BEST SONG OF THE SEASON, but I'm bias cause I really like this show :/ And look how cute the sun is teeheee!

Alright, so there are probably a bunch more anime openings out there I haven't heard yet. But I'm getting there…will post if they are acutally worth listening lol.

2011 winter anime by song

January 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Anime 2011 Winter Season is just beginning and contrary to what I was expecting, there is quite a bit of anime I’m interested in and a lot of new theme songs that I actually enjoy for once!

Soufuu
Kimi ni Todoke Second Season

I really like this song just as much as the first season’s opening. It is very cute and light hearted reflecting the nature of the anime. Since I love the manga, and watched the first season, I am most definitely going to watch the second season as well. Can I just say Miyano Mamoru really shines as the character Kento. It’s like the character is him!

STRAIGHT JET
Infinite Stratos

The anime is another harem genre series with two tsunderes and two childhood friends (wtf?) Althought I’m not watching this series, I definitely like the opening! It’s Kuribayashi Menami afterall! The song reminds me a lot of the Mai-Hime opening theme Shining Days, which I thought was a really good upbeat pop song for an anime because it gave you a sense of adventure. Adventure that’s probably going to be misplaced in the anime.

Daydream Syndrome
Yumekui Merry

The opening has a Touhou feeling to it and I really like how it’s high paced and rather rhythmic. Really gets my blood running! Unfortunately, the opening sequence that goes along with it is average. The anime is kind of average too. /yawns

Destine Histoire
GOSICK

This is a pretty good song by itself. Although it’s kind of a generic pop song, it’s the kind I like. I especially like the chorus when the harmonization starts kicking in. Comments on the anime itself, it’s decent. The genre is mystery, which already makes it quite different then most of the other animes this season. Also, Victorique is the best anime character so far this season. SHE IS HILARIOUS AND ADORABLE! She’s the main reason I’m waiting for the third episode.

Connect
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

This song has good contrast between the lyrical sections and the upbeat chorus. The animation sequence that goes along with it is also pretty good as well on an animation level, and storyboard level. The anime is really trippy and quite dark despite it being a Mahou Shoujo and in comparison to Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanaho. I’m definitely going to keep up with this anime!

magica
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Completely different from the opening theme, magica displays the rather trippy and dark overshadowing of this show. I am not joking about this anime being trippy. Just watch this fight scene for yourself. Of course, I would love this song immediately since it’s sung by Kalafina. It is a mix of the sound from Kara no Kyoukai and some of .Hack//SIGN’s vocal tracks.

Genjitsu to Iu Na no Kaibutsu to Tatakau Mono Tachi
Bakuman

This is the new ending to Bakuman. It just screams shounen from the animation to the actual song itself! It is the main reason why I like Bakuman. It’s essentially an anime adaptation of a manga about manga! Of course, since it’s running in shounen jump, it has to be a shounen manga, which just makes it that much more awesome! It’s fresh, it’s interesting, and fun to read/watch! I actually prefer the anime more because the manga is quite wordy for me. Easier for me to listen to the dialogue rather then read it.

Down by the Sally
Fractale

Really nice folk like tune for the ending of Fractale. I really like this anime because it is very much like the anime series back in 2000, where the stories and settings were unique and fresh. I have very high hopes for this series and, like Madoka, will definitely be following this series as well.

Memories Last
To Aru Majutsu no Index II

This ending theme is rather upbeat and pretty generic, but catchy enough for me to take note of it. I also thought the animation was quite nice in the ending sequence. I don’t watch this anime, so I kind of mistakened it for an opening!

He’s wearing something pink like; his hair is similar to the old hair style I loved; the song is old school…Totally suck me back a couple of years. It’s been AGES since I’ve heard this kind of sound from Yamapi, and to see his wretched curly hair style GONE FINALLY! Yamapi~ ❤

Indiscriminate Murder Is Counter-Productive

I know that I’m not meant to kill this indiscriminately,
but I get a bit bit carried away by the sounds of pain

What I may never know is the place of the maze
in which I would have erased some fucking fairies from space
I neglected to ask before I killed the last dairy farmer who knew
I wish I had waited for you
I wish I could invoke a better part of me
I know I’m s’posed to be all “the one”, but I have too much fun killing everyone
I came here to play, now could you come out and stay
so I can kill and away you to gods you pray to and never look back.

I know that all these NPCs don’t pose a threat to me
But I gotta kill kill something right now and this’ll have to do

What I may never know is the place of the maze
in which I would have erased some fucking fairies from space
I neglected to ask before I killed the last dairy farmer who knew
I wish I had waited for you
I wish I could invoke a better part of me
I know I’m s’posed to be all “the one”, but I have too much fun killing everyone
I came here to play, now could you come out and stay
so I can kill and away you to gods you pray to and never look back.

Kill, Kill is right. I am really not in the mood to be dealing with long term constipation due to anal congestion. I don’t want imagine the number of d–sticks are lodging right now. I just know this song makes me happy. Kill kill happy! I just picture kill kill something and the carcuss after I kill kill. Red splattering…cranberry sauce, kill kill tasty; snapping…cracklers at new years, kill kill exciting!; fat squishing…presents under a tree.

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt OST

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt OST

WARNING! NOT WORK SAFE! Clearly dealing with PSG.

Ok…the anime is wtf. It’s not even “why am I watching this?” Its more “why is this actually pretty good?” The music tracks that go with it are definitely amazing, except for the awkward orgy ones…very awkward. Plus the song titles are kind of…ahem, not work safe. But SERIOUS, there are a number of excellent house mixes. I am especially looking forward to the full version of the transformation sequence song. YES!

Anyway, those of you still debating on watching it, DO IT! Its one of those unique animes that clearly has more substance than it appears to have.

Brave Song

Angel Beats!- Brave Song

This is Brave Song, the Angel Beats ending. I put this together fairly quickly because its my last week with the Yamaha Grand. I wanted to spend as much quality time with it as possible! I tried to have the vocal melody stand out cause, well, it’s the vocal melody. Some of the rhythm might be off, and it might be a bit slow, but I’m satisfied with the overall performance. Once again, I have a terrible quality mic, so if you hear any sort of pedalling, or fuzzy business going on, I apologize. Below you’ll find credits and music sheets.

Vocals: Tada Aoi
