    Re: What is your favorite opening from the Spring 2010 Anime Season?

    Yes, I like “My Soul, Your Beats!” very much too. The piano is so beautiful in that song. I haven’t read the translation of the song yet, but it gives off a very nostalgic and bittersweet feeling when you listen to it.

    Here’s the full version of the song:

    My Soul, Your Beats!/Brave Song
    Artist: Lia


    Btw, are you watching Angel Beats Jaymie?
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    Re: Music Contest Round 5!!!

    I'm torn between the two OP songs of Arakawa under the Bridge, can i vote two?
    Oh well, I finally decided to vote for the OP 2 song of AUB (sister ♥ maria ftw!)

    Also i found somewhere the OP 2 of AUB with english sub (though try to check out if the translation is correct because I can't understand japanese well..)

    Great choice, Sakura-chan! And ITA, Sister x Maria ftw!

    Iirc, I read the same translation when I watched that episode, so I guess the translation is correct…

    And even though the lyrics are pretty mean and sound as if Maria is insulting Sister (well…she really is ), I do think that is Maria’s bizarre and sadistic way to show her love for Sister.

    (OT: Love your new sig! Maria, Sister and Stella as a family look so cute and lethal at the same time)

    Re: Music Contest Round 5!!!

    I'm glad the Otaku Cafe staff decided to do another one of these music contests

    Angels Beats: I love the piano (played by the ever-graceful Angel) behind the lyrics.
    Honorable mentions to B Gata H Kei and Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama!

    By the way, you might want to change the link on House of Five Leaves, the video seems to have been removed.


    Thanks to ~Coffee~ for the avatar and signature.

    As I said before, the piano is absolutely wonderful during that song. And since the piano is one of my favorite musical instruments, it just makes me enjoy that song even more. The lyrics of the song are very nice too:

    Here are the lyrics and translation of the song.

    [Lyrics] Angel Beats! OP – My Soul, Your Beats! [Lia]

    I haven’t voted yet because I’m still trying to decide what song to vote for, my choices are:

    Angel Beats!, Giant Killing, and Senkou no Night Raid.


    The poll will close tomorrow at 06:54 PM, so you have 1 more day to vote guys. Come and support your favorite OP and help to break the current tie!!!


    It was a very close contest between Angel Beats, Giant Killing and RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubo no Shichinin, but with 4 votes Giant Killing is the winner of this music contest.



    I would like to thank to all the members who voted and participated in this contest. Arigato!!

    Original / Romaji Lyrics

    United we stand, Fly a flag 風を受け止めて
    United we stand, Fly a flag kaze wo uke tome te
    United we stand, Fly a flag たなびけ勝利のFlag
    United we stand, Fly a flag tanabike shouri no Flag

    ase ha uragira naitte kuchibiru kami shime
    何度も立ち上がり 大地を駆け抜ける

    夢に終わりはないって 目を輝かせ
    yume ni owari hanaitte me wo kagayaka se

    United we stand, Fly a flag kaze wo uke tome te
    United we stand, Fly a flag たなびけ勝利のFlag
    United we stand, Fly a flag tanabike shouri no Flag


    僅かな希望信じて 挑み続けて行け
    wazuka na kibou shinji te idomi tsuduke te ike
    過ち恐れぬ者達よ 越えて行けその涙を
    ayamachi osore nu mono tachi yo koe te ike sono namida wo

    hitoshirezu nagashi ta namida ni yume ha yadoru
    時が流れていつか 挫けそうな時
    toki ga nagare teitsuka kujike souna toki
    君と見た景色が 胸の奥によみがえる
    kun to mita keshiki ga mune no oku niyomigaeru


    汗は裏切らないって くちびる噛み締め
    ase ha uragira naitte kuchibiru kami shime

    Let's start now Giant Killing
    For the right, Hold on tight
    My story ・・・ Forever



    English Translation (I couldn’t find the translation of the song so I google-translated the song)

    United we stand, Fly a flag to take the wind
    United we stand, Fly a flag of victory Tanabike Flag

    Go believing been running a distant goal
    The light descends to spin it their dream every day
    Clenching lips betray me sweat
    Repeatedly run through the earth rise
    The end of the first dream it's not shining

    Let's start now Giant Killing
    For the right, Hold on tight

    United we stand, Fly a flag to take the wind
    United we stand, Fly a flag of victory Tanabike Flag

    Go a bit of hope continues to defy belief
    The tears we'll go over their mistakes are not afraid
    Clenching lips betray me sweat
    Repeatedly run through the earth rise
    The end of the first dream it's not shining

    Let's start now Giant Killing
    For the right, Hold on tight
    My story

    Can not Hardly Wait for tomorrow night that struggled
    Dwells in the secret dream Tears
    Someday when I'm crushed when flows
    Come on the scene saw you in my heart

    Clenching lips betray me sweat
    Repeatedly run through the earth rise
    The end of the first dream it's not shining

    Let's start now Giant Killing
    For the right, Hold on tight
    My story • • • Forever

    THE CHERRY COKES

    About THE CHERRY COKES

    THE CHERRY COKES are an eclectic 7 piece band that plays a furious mixture of punk and Celtic music. The band started back in 1999 and released a few demo CDs and had numerous member changes until 2003 when they landed their seven person lineup. In 2004 they got the chance of a lifetime and toured with the band that influenced the band to their core when they came to Japan, Flogging Molly. They formed a close bond and released their first CD on their label, "BULLION" (Flogging Molly, Casualties, 7 Seconds, Suicide Machines, Useless ID, etc.). This first release got them noticed in a big way in Japan. They were all over the music channels and got a high ranking in all of the indies charts. The band blew up from there and toured with many bands and hit the festival circuit. At one point they had a special program on the Music Video TV station M-ON and held an acoustic live performance. From 2006 - 2008 they made a departure and played mostly with Japanese bands like KEMURI. In 2008 they released their third album, SAIL THE PINT. The band classifies their music as drinking music and frequently alludes to drinking in their music and choice of titles. The band released a new mini album in 2009 entitled "keep the fire".

    From their myspace page:

    Starting back in 1999 The Cherry Cokes$ have attracted an audience in Japan with their unique sound; a drunken Irish punk incorporating banjo, mandolin and tin whistle. Their first album, "Beer my Friends", brought them to national attention in the indies scene with airplay of their music video on MTV and SpaceShower TV. Now you can find them touring with some of the biggest names in punk when they come to Japan. They have toured with Flogging Molly and The Casualties and have played the Tokyo gigs of such legends as Greenland Whalefishers and the Dropkick Murphys.

    Currently they're signed to Step Up Records records. A new album is out and they will start their “Giant Killing” tour next month.

    My nomination for this contest is: Utada Hikaru - Uso Mitaina I Love You. The record companies are deleting the music videos so a Final Fantasy MAD will suffice.

    I'm glad you like it! Utada Hikaru has a beautiful voice; she's really talented! As for the song itself, I like how it's upbeat and isn't a typical ballad that is expected from those lyrics.

    My (humble) nomination: DEL - Koi Suzumi (it doesn't have a proper music video)

    I know it's not as good as the ones you guys have already posted (I really like all of them), but I also really like listening to this relaxing love song, so I thought I might nominate it anyway.

    Spoiler: It also doesn't even have a proper translated lyrics show
