SID - Rain Love this song!! I can't wait for the full version to be released.
I just love this song:
Wind by Akeboshi
It was used for the first Naruto Ending.
^Oi oi isn't it time for you to loop K-on's new songs?
Koi no Tokushiyoku - Paz (CV: Mizuki Nana)
Character song for Metal Gear Solid. I didn't like the preview, but the full version is love. I couldn't care less about MGS...'DOKI DOKI ~'
Oh the PV is great. Snake stands at the beach with a beautiful sunset...there's some fanservice too :3
Well,i heard that there is a new season,but i haven't seen a single episode yet.
Are all the new songs released allready?
Only the first episode is out. This time we're getting a 2 cour season (since there's going to be 9 DVDs for K-on season 2). Moe blobs in my face for 6 months <3
The opening had mixed reactions. Most people didn't like the new opening, but I really liked it. Yui/Aki Toyosaki sang the song in a very very high speed, sorta chipmunk style. The ending had better reactions, most people liked it. I found it kinda medicore and average. We'll be getting more inserts and more character singles soon enough. Oh I expect another opening and ending too!
I doubt the music would sell like as well as last year. But CD sales are weaker and weaker, they might rank higher. Don't Say Lazy could have easily ranked weekly first with 66,910 first week (in total 170k). But then Hokago Tea Time actually ranked weekly album number 1.
Just watched the first episode yesterday and it was surprisingly close to the manga.Yui was as awesome as always,especially with her "Oink Oink!"^^
Well that aside,the opening was nice.I liked thi high-speed singing and it kind of fits Yui's voice.
The ending was not as good imo.The beginning was nice and matched with the animations,but the rest was as you said,rather average and nothing that great.
The singles for the opening and ending are ranking 1st and 2nd respectively on the Amazon.co.jp music CD chart. Of course this is just the amazon chart. I can't find any strong sellers for the week anyway. If the CD sales keeps up, K-on grabbing no.1 and no.2 on the weekly chart isn't impossible. I can't wait for the concert DVD/BD to be released. How did K-on get a Yokohama Arena concert? But then TeniMyu is holding a 3 day concert there...Japanese peeps are weird.
Did I say the covers for the 2 CDs look great?
I haven't been watching the last season of Nodame Cantabile, I've seen the manga already so I wouldn't miss out much. I am however, looking forward to the movies. The opening of the 3rd season of the anime is love <3. It's similar to the first two opening yet I don't feel I've heard the song before.
BoA - Eat You Up
I think this is an awesome tune! xD
Chelsea Girl - Tamura Yukari
Yukarin totally won my heart lately. She is just so darn cute, eternally seven
teenyears old goddess. The only reason I suddenly looked up Yukarin is because I just heard a certain episode of her radio show. She actually said people would rather her marry Mizuki Nana then a guy (also that Sugita should be with Nakamura and Kamiyan should be with OnoD). Oh she watched Junjou Romantica and said it was interesting. Her MC in animelo 2009 was awesome. Yukarin is a good seiyuu idol, her singing is pretty much top notch as far as moe seiyuus are (of course there are alot of singer seiyuus who sings miles better, but they're not moe...are they?). But she's actually *not* boring, Nana-chan's MCs or radio shows are incredibly boring...
“Change” by Miwa Love this song and the new Bleach OP! I can’t wait for the full version of the song to be released!!
The Dissappearence of Suzumiya Haruhi OST in general. It's close enough to be a j-song...right?
Series by KyoAni tend to have a weak OST, at least compared to the animation. The OST had a few tunes that was from the original series but with a new higher budget arrangement. 'Ano Hi no KioKu wo Oikakete' is probably my favourite track, possibly because I loved the respective scene in the movie. I like my orchestra OSTs.
Macross Frontier had a better OST, but then again that was by Yoko Kanno. I wonder did KyoAni actually asked her to work on the Haruhi OST? They did ask the director of Summer Wars/Girl who leapt through time to direct the movie.
