Banner Competition!

Well this has been an effort that’s been long in planning, yet here we are at last at another banner competition! This is your chance to make a mark on the club by designing us a banner that will go on our Facebook Group where we will see it almost everyday, OR your banner could appear on our website where it will face the public! Sound like a scary prospect?

This competition is meant to be fun though, and it’s pretty simple to enter! Looks like a lot of text below, I know, but they’re pretty simple rules:

There will be prizes apart from your instant celebrity status! A first, second and third prize will be awarded. Prizes pending for now~

For your convenience, a template for Facebook Group sized banners created by our Art Director here! (you can open in FireAlpaca or GIMP if you don’t have Photoshop)

Enjoy!

Relaxing Porco Piano for your Music Monday evening!

September 17, 2012, by , posted in Features, Music

When your humble blogger here wrote (no wait, typed!) his last Music Monday post about one of the themes from InuYasha, fellow club member Kirishima was so happy to have some classic anime here again, we’ve decided to dedicate more posts to this time period in Japanese animation! Well, the music in this time period of Japanese animation. With this in mind, let’s explore this rather nostalgic (and porky) tune.

Music Monday – Turning back the clock

September 10, 2012, by , posted in Features, Music

So reading Ruby‘s post last week made me nostalgic for older music and simpler times (wait, they were ever simple?) and unleashed a rampage of reminiscing about Inuyasha opening and closing songs on Twitter and bands-people-had-not-paid-attention-to-previously… like Do As Infinity, but ANYWAY, I’m not dragging us all the way back there today – or at least, not quite that far back.

When thinking about nostalgic old songs, for some strange reason this one has always been one of my favourite when thinking back that far (despite Inuyasha being one of my first obsessions, which I would never have admitted when I was in high school). Read on~

Music Monday – When One InuYasha isn’t enough!

September 3, 2012, by , posted in Music

Hello again, your irritating red-gemmed anime club member here to regale you once more with a Music Monday so needlessly verbose and lacking in meaningful detail you’ll want to yell BAKA at me, then comically throw a dictionary at my face so hard you’ll make even Kyou Fujibayashi blush. Which makes no sense at all, because this Music Monday is about InuYasha.

Music Monday: My ClariS can’t be this cute!

August 27, 2012, by , posted in Music

Hello and welcome to the first thrilling episode of Music Monday with your host Vadim.

If you have you seen Ore Imo, Madoka Magika or Nisemonogatari you should be familiar with the group ClariS.

ClariS is a Japanese pop music duo, consisting of high school girls Clara and Alice. The duo was formed in 2009 when the girls did a cover of the Vocaloid song Step to You. ClariS became popular because they were uploading their songs to the Japanese video sharing website Niko Niko Douga.

After being signed by the Japanese record label SME Records, ClariS released their first major debut single Irony – The opening theme for Ore Imo. It was so successful that The Good Smile Company even released Nendoroid versions of Clara and Alice.

Shortly after (February 2011) ClariS released their second hit single Connect which was used as the opening theme for Madoka Magika. Connect was awarded the Gold Disc for exceeding 100,000 copies shipped within a year.

Their forth single Naisho no Hanashi which was composed by Ryo of Supercell was used in 2012 as the ending theme for Nisemonogatari.

The latest piece from ClariS is the Moyashimon Returns opening theme: Wake up. Also a new single called Luminous will be released October 10th and will be the used as the theme song for the upcoming Madoka Magika movie.

P.S. I’m going to sing all of these songs when we go to Karaoke next <3
