Music Monday – Saint Seiya… Omega?

Hmmm, that’s interesting.

I’m quite surprised. At myself that is, because I didn’t find out about this series until after the first episode aired. I have seen it now and, well… /headdesk.

But what surprised me more was (and maybe it shouldn’t have) the opening, which you can watch up there. Those who are familiar with the original anime will know what I’m talking. For those who aren’t familiar, I present to you “Pegasus Fantasy” by MAKE.UP, the opening of the original series.

They’re the same song! Except for one being a remake of the original, but the same nonetheless! And probably slightly different lyrics, but still! And I personally love that. Hey, I even prefer the new version to the original (I was never a fan of “Pegasus Fantasy”, sorry).

I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time a remake of an anime opening was made for a newer series, and it’ll certainly won’t be the last (looking at you, Space Battleship Yamato). But it’s still an interesting idea and experience, at least for myself.

What about you? Do you know of any other ‘remakes’? Are there any openings or endings that you would like to see remade for a new series?
