Music Video Monday #48: Trollish Aliens Edition

This week I chose, ‘Cold Finger Girl’ by Chiaki Kuriyama, or better known as the OP to this year’s Level E. At first, I didn’t pay much mind to Level E’s opening as I watched the show, but it definitely grew on me. In fact, the show as a whole pretty much grew on me as I felt pretty uninterested in the show until a few episodes in when it managed to turn things around into an unexpected twist. David Productions is doing surprisingly well this year, as they’re also producing this season’s Ben-to, which is also a whole lot of fun to watch.

Music Video Monday #47: Chasing Light Edition

This week I chose ‘Chase the Light’ by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or better known as the OP to Kaiji Season 2. I’m not the biggest fan of screaming music… or autotuning, but this isn’t too bad. I’ve gotten used to it while watching Kaiji’s second season (which by the way is a must watch for the year). I still find myself enjoying Kaiji’s 1st OP way more, but it’s nice to have a chance in pace in music. Fear and Loathing has also produced the new Hunter x Hunter ED, another show of the season I’ve yet to catch up on.

Music Video Monday #46: Survival Game Edition

This week I chose ‘Kuusou Mesorogiwi’ by Yousei Teikoku, or better known as the 1st OP to Mirai Nikki. Without a doubt, this song makes my favorite opening of the season. Yes, if you’ve read the manga, then you’ve noticed there’s spoilers up the ass in the opening. But for those who haven’t read it, well then you’re in for quite the treat. I absolutely love Mirai Nikki and this song quite accurately describes the feeling and atmosphere of Mirai Nikki. I swear, I listen to this opening three or four times a day.

Music Video Monday #43: Zero Gravity Edition

This week I chose ‘Gravity 0’ by Aqua Timez, or better known as Star Driver’s first op. So Star Driver is one of those shows where I think the opening’s absolutely great, but I still dislike the show itself. The music in SD is pretty damn awesome, but goddamn, nothing makes shit for sense in that show. Still, it had very nice action sequences for mecha against mecha fights, I suppose.

Music Video Monday #42: Silky Edition

It’s been pretty hectic these past few weeks, as I’m readjusting myself to the college schedule, but I’m still hanging on to doing these posts as much as I can. For this week I chose ‘Silky Heart’ by Yui Horie, or better known as the 2nd OP to Toradora! What I like the 2nd opening and the song, is that it accurately represents the change of mood in the 2nd half of Toradora. The series takes a much more serious pace past the 12 episodes of slice of life, and leads into much more deeper tone of drama, a whole wave of emotions swaying around. Also a little update on the shows: We just recorded one a couple nights ago, so look forward to seeing more shows weekly!

Music Video Monday #41: Ghost Edition

This week I chose ‘Grow up’ by Hysteric Blue, or better known as the OP to Ghost Stories. For anyhow who doesn’t know, Ghost stories has one of the finest english dubs ever to grace anime. Seriously. Check it out while you can. In the meantime, here’s the catchy opening accompany the series.

Music Video Monday #40: Princess Jellyfish Edition

This week we have ‘Koro Dake no Hanashi’ by popular band, Chatmonchy, or better known as the OP to Kuragehime. Kuragehime was certainly a surprisingly interesting show of last fall, coming along with music from Chatmonchy and Sambomaster. It was a nice combination of comedy and drama, pressed into a short one core show. A bit of a shame that it’s rarely talked about nowadays, but nevertheless positively praised as one of the best comedies of last year. Brains Base, don’t stop bein’ awesome.

Music Video Monday #39: Rosario Edition

This week I chose ‘Cosmic Love’ by Nana Mizuki, or better known as the 1st OP to Rosario Vampire. I’ve tried to look for the proper PV for this song, and it only exists on sites like tudou, but embedding it from those are a bitch so here’s a link instead. I’ll admit, Rosario is a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s a silly harem, but at the same time, it’s just so damn entertaining, not to mention the opening is so damn catchy. It’s just one of those shows were you can’t really explain why you like it, even if it’s looked down upon by many people. Hell, I’ll proudly say I enjoy this series.

Music Video Monday #38: Spicy Wolf Edition

This week I have chosen ‘Tabi no Tochuu’ by Kiyoura Natsumi, or better known as the OP to Spice and Wolf S1. Just like on a couple weeks ago when I posted the Cloud Symphony, this isn’t exactly an official music video, but rather the song as sung by the original artist. I found that this song fit the show extremely well, not to mention it also has a beautiful melody. I should also probably thrown in that engrish ED, Ringo Hiyori, which has an excellent mixture of intruments, but perhaps for another week. As for the shows, they are being edited so just hang in a little longer if you’re one of our long time listeners. We’ve got 2 AMF shows, and 2 main shows, well on their way to being finished so be sure to look forward to those soon!

Music Video Monday #37: Circus Edition

This week I chose ‘Hyadain no Joujou Yuujou’ by none other than Hyadain themselves, or better know as the 2nd OP to Nichijou. I’ve noticed I have a general dislike for second openings of shows, however, this is an exception. Perhaps I like it even more? Anyhow, I really love the excitement and just how catchy this song is.
