Music Monday – Senbonzakura

December 28, 2015, by , posted in Music

In this edition of Music Monday, lets explore the world of Vocaloid. I am sure most of you are familiar with Miku and her beautiful songs, and if you haven’t, I’d recommend you go through our Vocaloid tag.

The song Senbonzakura was released in 2011 and describes Japan during the Meiji period. However it has contains rather dark themes, mentioning guillotines and ICBM. On the other side, the catchy tunes make it one of the most memorable Miku songs.

The version I would like to show you today, is a violin cover by Lindsey Stirling. This cover is one of the best Senbonzakura covers I’ve heard, and the visuals make it that much better, so what better place to share my love for this great piece then on anime@UTS’ weekly Music Monday.

Got something similar to this you would like to share? Send us an email at suggestions@utsanime.net, and you could be the next featured article on the website of UTS’ best (and only) anime society.

Music Monday – Christmas×Anime

December 21, 2015, by , posted in Music

Merry Christmas! One of everyone’s favourite part of this season is the music, and one of everyone’s favourite parts of anime is music. So I say this calls for a fusion – anime Christmas music! There are some real gems hidden in this oddly specific category. Some of you may remember I have a deep love for Mizuki Nana, and she kickstarted her career with a role in a very old PlayStation game, NOeL ~La Neige~ (it’s so old it’s only on Japanese Wikipedia!), and with that role came a character song – Merry X’mas ~Holy Night Vers.~

Music Monday – One Piece

December 14, 2015, by , posted in Music

One Piece is long. So long that it has had a total of 18 opening songs. Today i bring you my personal favorite; One Day by The ROOTLESS. It’s the 13th opening and in my opinion, the best.

The opening is a wonderful tribute to the Marineford arc and shows Luffy looking for then running towards his brother, Ace. It also features alot of characters that take part in the war. So really, it shows all the awesome characters in the anime we love, as well as the ones we hate.

To list (only a few) the characters included; Luffy, Ace, the Mugiwaras, Whitebeard, Marco, Rayleigh, Shanks, Crocodile, Mr.3, Buggy, Ivankov, the Worst Generation, Blackbeard pirates, Garp, Coby, the Admirals, Kuma, Doflamingo, Moriah, Smoker. SERIOUSLY ALOT.

One Piece openings tend to be pretty fun and crazy but this one is more of a serious song, reflecting the Marineford Arc of the anime (R.I.P Ace /cry) The awesome guitar, strong n’ steady beat combined with a rockin’ voice make this song an epic choice for blasting on your stereo and makes it one of my favorite openings of all time.
