Music

Who doesn’t love music?! With all these anime opening and ending themes, original sound tracks, and heck even J-Pop/K-Pop all around us. We should share our love for music with the rest of the world. And what better place then in your favourite university club.

Music Monday – Kuchizuke

November 16, 2015, by , posted in Music

For those who prefer something more niche and on the strange side, this week I’m presenting Kuchizuke by Buck-Tick.The band predominantly produces visual kei and rock music but they are pretty versatile and cover a wide range of genres. Their visual kei style though, is reflected in this particular piece that is also used as the opening of supernatural horror anime Shiki. I’ve really enjoyed this song from rhythm games like StepMania, so I hope you do too!

Music Monday – White Album

November 9, 2015, by , posted in Music

Those of you who like visual novels may have heard of White Album. Those of you who like music anime may have heard of it also. Featuring idols as heavily as it does, it of course has some pretty top-notch music. But some of my personal favourites managed to miss out on the fame, so here we are. First up, the opening of the first season of the anime: Shin Ai by Mizuki Nana.

Music Monday – Sakura Nagashi (桜流し)

November 2, 2015, by , posted in Music

Okay, so, Madman has *finally* announced the release date for Evangelion 3.0 on DVD and BluRay. It’s cool guys, not like it was released three years ago or anything. But anyway, to celebrate, I thought I’d feature the ending theme: Sakura Nagashi (桜流し) by Utada Hikaru (宇多田 ヒカル).

Revival of Music Mondays – The Perfect Insider

October 26, 2015, by , posted in Music

What is this?! anime@UTS is reviving music Mondays! This unheard of. Hide your kids, hide your wife….

Music Monday has been an anime club tradition ever since its conception in 2010 and it went on strong until the last one in February 2014. With the new execs all settled in and are ready to take the club to the next level, I think it would be an adequate time to bring back a part of the club that was lost in the past years.

To kick it off I bring you a rather new anime, coming out this season (Fall 2015) called Subete ga F ni Naru – The Perfect Insider. It is mystery genre anime, which is rather rare to find these days, made by NotaminA. That alone should get you hyped up. Animation is top notch and so far (we are in week 3 now) we have absolutely no idea what the show is about, isn’t that great. But it is definitely a candidate for AOTS. For this Music Monday I would like to put up both the OP and ED of the show, as they are both rather unique and have catchy songs.

Music Monday – Blumenkranz

February 3, 2014, by , posted in Music

Blumenkranz

Blumenkranz – in german it means a wreath of flowers (ring of flowers) and that is what normal german speakers would think if they heard anyone say this word. Well if anime fas, who are watching the show Kill La Kill hears this word, they will undoubtedly think of the second best track from the OST (Original Sound Track) which bears the same name – Blumenkranz.

The soundtrack plays whenever Satsuki’s mother comes on screen to give a strong and powerful feeling that the main villain of the series deserves. I don’t know what it is with german language that gives it so much strength and power, but more and more Japanese singers seem to be incorporating words or phrases into their songs lately. But of course not only are the lyrics a bit strangely arranged (some people are even saying that they were made using google translate) but the girl who sings it is obviously not German as she can barely pronounce the words properly. To be fair, is did a lot better then Link Horizon with their Guren no Yumiya (Shingeki OP).

If you know even a bit of German, I suggest you look at the lyrics and try reading them while the song is playing to see the difference. Also here is a cover by a German singer, and this sounds so much better. Especially in the “Ja, Ich bin viel stärker, als ich je gedacht hab” part in the middle of the song. The Japanese singer completely swallows the gedacht, like it never existed, making it that much harder to sing for the German Girl.
