Review: Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

I will not remember December 24th, 2011 as the date of Christmas Eve, but rather as the moment when Fate/Zero Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon ended. Oh well, at least Horizon is getting a second season in Summer 2012. It was to be expected since the numbers for BD pre-orders were said to be pretty high. The first BD volume of Horizon sold 16,349 copies on the first week of release.

The Idolmaster Ep 6: Oh Producer, you fail

I’m finally back from the last day of Otakuthon (in Montreal)! Expect from me (politician promise) to make a coverage of the event, day 2 & 3 to be exact. There were some bad stuffs, but overall, I still had fun.

And no, I do not have a picture of myself at Otakuthon :p I’ll try to see if I ever make any cameo appearances on people’s videos which I doubt very much because I’m always on constant movement. I’m probably a ninja without the costume, lol.

But, I do have a picture of Halko Momoi singing in a high school uniform lol

Anyway, let’s be back to Idolmaster. Continue reading ‘The Idolmaster Ep 6: Oh Producer, you fail’

Guest post: Hetalia character songs

Remember several episodes ago when I invited someone to make a guest post about the Hetalia character song? I’ve never really had any interest in them (unless it’s an ending song) but many people certainly seem to love them. So today for you all I’m taking the back seat and I invite Camille to take the reins. So I’ll shut up and leave the talking to someone who knows more about Hetalia than I do.

Hatsune Miku Virtual Idol to Hold 1st Solo Concert

Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Sega’s official website for Hatsune Miku, a virtual singer whose voice is created by a software engine, has announced on Thursday that she will hold her first solo concert on March 9. The date was chosen for the “Miku no Nichi Kanshasai 39’s Giving Day” project because “3/9″ can be pronounced in Japanese in the same way as the English word “thank.” More details will be announced on the website on December 17.

Hatsune Miku’s image was created by an artist named Kei, and her voice was provided by YAMAHA Corporation’s Vocaloid 2 engine using samples from voice actress Saki Fujita. The idol already performed “live” for the first time in August at the Animelo Summer Live 2009 Re:bridge concert. That concert used a screen installed at the back of the stage to project Hatsune several stories tall before a standing-room-only crowd of 25,000. She also performed in Singapore during the Anime Festival Asia 2009 event last month.

[PV] Tsukiakari no Michishirube by Stereopony

It took me awhile to get a hang to this. I’ll admit it; I’m not such a huge fan of this song nor of Stereopony. I do however think that it’s better than their take on Gundam 00 OP, Namida no Mukou. DTB Gemini ED by abingdon boys school is better but the single is not out yet but I’ll post it up as soon as it is released. If you want the song, you can get the PV rip here. Cheers!

DTB: Ryuusei no Gemini OP + ED

Ah! AIMI’s cute voice for the vocals of Stereopony really fits DTB2 this time, judging by the fact that Suou is taking the lead role while Hei’s story is taking the back seat. We should be familiar with Stereopony from Gundam 00 and Bleach. And also, the ever famous abingdon boys school. I swear we’re seeing this band doing OPs and EDs for various animes, including Soul Eater, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, and more recently, Sengoku Basara. But to be fair, they also did the OP for DTB season 1. I’d say I wouldn’t enjoy both tracks though abingdon boys schools did a better job. I still find FMA’s second OP and ED are the best of anime this year, with NICO Touches the Wall’s Hologram for OP and Miho Fukuhara’s Let It Out for ED. As if not having Yoko Kanno for music director isn’t bad enough already. I guess we’ll have to make do for the newbie for now. For their full songs, I’ll post them up once they’re released. Should be soon enough, I hope.

Anime openings and endings by popular western bands

After the rather nice surprise of hearing Oasis singing the opening for Eden of the East, I did a little research to check what other anime had songs sung by popular western bands with plans to write a post about them. Then I instantly forgot until 3 moths later when I came across an anime opening sung by the Backstreet Boys. So I decided to go back and write the post, even though it’s not quite the hot topic it was when Eden was airing.
