Music Monday – Tell me why?

February 8, 2016, by , posted in Music

This weeks edition of Music Monday is brought to you by our very own Mr. Dunne, enjoy:

I recently found out that you guys have an anime music blog.

So when the Prez asked me if I wanted to write about music……about anime music. I couldn’t really care, but because I love you guys, I’m willing to give you a sloppily written Sunday hangover review about my journey into the heart of madness that is the world of anime music.

There is one song, that –only you Hipsters out there will get– that I love more then “Cruel Angel’s Thesis”.

And that song is…. (*Drum Roll*)

‘Tell Me Why’ -By the Penpals.

Look, There’s no secret that I’m the #1 fan of Berserk in Oceania.

But “Tell me why” is the worst OP for any franchise ever made. Particularly for a show that is a rad as ‘Berserk.’

For those of you who don’t know what a Berserk is, it is a 1997 slice of fantasy life anime adapted from Kentaro Miura’s 1989 critically acclaimed Manga. It follows a young man named gutz in a time of social upheaval as he explores the meaning of friendship, gets caught in comedic situations, and even finds love while all struggling against his own existential crises.

TL;DR

Berserk is like 90’s Naruto and One Piece, If you like these cartoons then you would love Berserk. But Berserk is better because

Mercenaries > Pirates> Ninja’s

Music Monday – Scandal

February 1, 2016, by , posted in Music

Hi everyone, today’s Music Monday is brought to you by our very own Tonkatsu! Lets see what he has to say about SCANDAL:

I’ve been listening to all of SCANDAL’s released albums ever since their announcement on a new album Yellow, which will be out on March 2nd. I’ll just say straight off that it’s one of those bands, like Asian Kung Fu Generation, that you want to keep talking about, because their songs are incredible.

SCANDAL was formed as a rock band back in 2006, which is what these 4 females called themselves, as they only did rock when they first started. They’re not simply 4 girls that tries to look cute as depicted in the likes of K-ON – they sing, play, write some songs and puts up great performances live on stage. They’re a powerful band with lively personality – so it’s no wonder why they are super popular.

I’m sure most of you guys have heard of SCANDAL before as they performed theme songs for popular anime such as Bleach:

Music Monday – Asian Kung-fu Generation

January 25, 2016, by , posted in Music

The new season started and one of the best shows is time around is called Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, or Erased in English. But I am here to talk about music, more specifically the OP of this great show. Its called Re:Re: by Asian Kung-Fu Generation and I think it fits this shows theme perfectly. Why? Well the melody, the lyrics are a given, but in this case its also the reason behind choosing a song by AKG from 2005. The story of Erased is set in 2006 and that is exactly the time when Asian Kung-Fu Generation was super popular, so it fits right?
