Epic.This is just Epic.

This is one of the best day of this month.AFA10 information released, Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer released in sg,and found really awesome songs like Bad Apple from Touhou.

First up, AFA10. Been waiting for this for months. Everything is awesome in AFA10,like SCANDAL,Angela,May’n,Jam Project coming down for this year’s AFA10.Oh everything except for the pricing that is(its like more than double the price of last year).$8 for a day pass is fine,but no concert no movie screening.$15 for movie screening and day pass but no concert.Here’s the big one:$55 for day pass,concert and movie screening FOR ONE DAY,and its a standing pass,not vip seating.$70 is going to fly away from me thanks to AFA.To those thinking of getting only the day pass,do think again.Cause you’ll regret not paying $7 more and watch Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer and The Disappearence of Suzumiya Haruhi and pay $10 more when you finally feel like watching them.Here’s the link to it:http://blog.sgcafe.com/2010/09/afa-x-press-conference-highlights/

Next up,AFA10 also stated Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer is going to be released in SG in movies!Not in the usual GV or Cathay but some wierd cinema.Who cares, as long as its out I’m gonna go watch it.$12 for a ticket is totally worth it.Here’s the link to the showtimes and booking:http://www.sistic.com.sg/event/suit0910.html

Finally, Bad Apple by Touhou.THIS IS EPIC.Its an old song I know, but its still awesome.Enough talk, just listen to it.

And here’s another one that made it so epic.In case you didnt know, some dude went and draw 6500+ images and compiled into this PV.

Lastly(just for spam), some pictures.

Nishishishi

In case you’re wondering whats with the title, its from this awesome video that Hiromi(http://at.the-circ.us/) showed me.

BE WARNED:Its really addictive

The song is awesome, but I just wonder why didnt the guy who made this use the “man man niku man” phrase.

Alright back to the main point.I know its been ages since I last posted anything(well it always happens anyway). Really busy this time. 5 days of the week in school for 9 hours is bad enough, no time for the new PlayStation 3 that I bought on weekdays, downloaded animes can only be watched when I have the time at home, weekends are usually used for going out, sleep or playing ps3/com games  and thus totally left with 0 free time to post anything on wordpress=). Oh and I am using my school time to post something here by the way.

I guess its pretty obvious but I’ve stopped PV subbing for the time being. Having no time at all to post anything on wordpress also means no time at all to do any subbing. The previous PV I stated in some post I did long ago(Its either Riot Girl or Set Me Free I think) would be on hold for now. Remember that my hardisk crashed on me once, and all my work gets washed down the drain together with it. For those who got their hopes high and waited ages for a subbed PV to be released from me, sorry about that.

Since I aint doing reviews for summer animes in this post, I’ll do a simple review on Seitokai Yakuin Domo. Basically, its AWESOME. I’m starting to get the feeling of Amakusa Shino turning into Akiyama Mio very soon due to episode 10. Not going to spoil so just go watch it yourself. Hikasa Youko, you’re doing a great job on this=).

Just a small note: There’s been loads of issues with Hirano Aya about her looking for a boyfriend or quitting her seiyuu career. Many fans raged after hearing the news and really went crazy, but I’m still supporting her. She’s an idol in many ways to me.

Updates

Dead but revived!

Alright I know this blog is somehow dead after my youtube account got banned.Blame those “awesome” people for reporting my videos.

Summer animes has been released for around a month already, and as usual I am going to do some reviews on the animes and their OP’s/ED’s which are worth watching for this season.

Highschool of the dead

I guess I don’t even have to recommand this.Everybody has been dying to watch this ever since plans for this anime has been announced.It’s like Left for Dead anime version, or somewhat close to Resident Evil.Just that this has A LOT of fan service(eg.bouncing boobs and panty shots everywhere.AND I MEAN EVERYWHERE).For those who hate a little gore well too bad for you cause this is really an awesome show.Will rate it 9/10.Didn’t really like the opening though, they could really do better on it.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama Tachi

Wierd title huh.Well despite the wierd title, this is a rather nice show.Main Character VA:Itou Shizuka.That should explain it all.*SPOILERS*–>My life would be darned if I couldn’t stand people staring at me.Anyway, opening Ready Go! by May’n.I would say this song is really May’n-ish.Its somewhat similar to Kimi Shinitamo Koto Nakare(also a May’n song).Its pretty good,so its kind of worth listening to.Overall,I’ll rate this anime 8/10.

Seitokai Yakuindomo

For those who haven’t watched this show:PLEASE GO OPEN A NEW TAB ON YOUR INTERNET BROWSER AND START LOOKING FOR STREAMING SITES TO WATCH THIS SHOW NOW.This show is awesome, with their “heavy” jokes that is.Girls out there, you are not getting any heavier during a “heavy day”<—just a joke,no offense.This show is special.I really love both the opening and ending.Opening title Yamato Nadeshiko Education by Triple Booking(Its actually just the 3 members from SYD) and Ending title Aoi Haru by Angela(Angela songs are always awesome).I’ll rate this show 10/10.Couldn’t even drop 0.1 even if I wanted to, because there was no flaw that I can think of to do so.Oh did I mention that Hisaka Youko(VA for Akiyama Mio from K-ON) is in this show as well?So all Mio/Hisaka Youko fans do go watch this show!

Amagami SS

Well,this show is good.Its really similar to Hatsukoi I would say.Another reason to watch this:Itou Shizuka is in this show again.I really like her character in this show.Totally my type.Anyway I prefer the ending to the opening.Lazy to state them all out.Rating:9.3/10.I took away 0.7 because their opening/ending issn’t the best and the ending to Morishima Haruka’s arc is zz.

Occult Academy,Shiki

Why am I putting them together?Because this post is getting really long.Anyway they have similarities.Occult Academy is pretty well done,Shiki is still not bad but I hope they will improve on storyline soon.I’ve never paid any attention to both the openings and endings of these 2 animes,thus whether they are good or bad,its up to you to youtube them and rate.Occult Academy gets 8.5/10 and Shiki gets 8.1/10 I guess.

I’ll edit and add in some else here once I am done uploading the song to my new youtube account.Do wait because this song is really awesome.

Edit:                                                  

Ichiban no Takaramono Original Ver. by Karuta

Yes I know this issnt any opening or ending from the summer anime 2010.Just wanted to share this song because its really nice.Guess this is going to be the song I will be playing for two weeks.Anyway, Angel Beats OST has already been leaked,even though it was scheduled to be released on the 28th of July.The songs there are really great,so do support and buy the album!(I’ll upload Ichiban no Takaramono Piano version as soon as possible when I master it^^)If anybody is looking for the lyrics,here is it:

Romaji

Suso ga nureta nara
Kawaku no mateba ii
Mizuoto wo tatete haneta

Kimi ga oshiete kureta n da Mou kowaku nai
Nigitte ite kureta kono te wo hanasanakya dame da

Minna de mita yume wa Kanarazu motteku yo
Minna to ga ii na Minna to ga yokatta

Mou furikaette mo dare no kage mo nai
Mizutamari dake ga hikatta
Ikiteku koto sore wa tachimukatte iku koto
Sore ga wakatta nara ato wa fumidasu yuuki dake

Doko made mo yuku yo Koko de shitta koto
Shiawase to iu yume wo kanaete miseru yo
Minna to hanarete mo Donna ni tooku natte mo

Hitori demo yuku yo Shinitaku natte mo

Naze ka sore ga ima ichiban no takaramono

English Translation

Whenever the tips of my clothes got wet,
I was alright just waiting for them to dry.
I jumped wholeheartedly to the sound of the water.

You taught me so much; I’m not scared anymore.
I have to let go of these hands that were holding me.

I’ll go by myself, even if it looks painful,
I’ll always carry on the dream I had with everyone.
Being with everyone is so nice; Being with everyone was so wonderful.
But when I woke up in the morning, no one was there.

Even if I don’t turn around anymore, I know I won’t see anyone’s reflections.
Only the puddles were shining.
Living is the same thing as fighting.
If I understood that, I would have only the courage to advance onward.

I’ll go anywhere, you all know that.
I’ll show you all that I can grant your dreams of happiness.
Even if I’m separated from everyone, no matter how far,
I’ll be born with the new morning.

I’ll go by myself, even if I’m scared of dying,
I can hear your voices; I mustn’t die.
Even if it looks painful, even if I’m locked in darkness,
Deep in my heart the light is burning.

Time changed as it ebbed and flowed.
I can’t remember what happened anymore but,
If I try and close my eyes I can hear everyone’s laughter.
Somehow that’s now my most precious treasure.

Kanji

裾が濡れたなら
乾くの待てばいい
水音をたてて跳ねた

きみが教えてくれたんだ もう恐くない
握っていてくれたこの手を離さなきゃだめだ

ひとりでもゆくよ 例え辛くても
みんなで見た夢は 必ず持ってくよ
みんなとがいいな みんなとがよかった
でも目覚めた朝 誰も居ないんだね

もう振り返っても誰の影もない
水たまりだけが光った
生きてくことそれは立ち向かっていくこと
それがわかったなら後は踏み出す勇気だけ

どこまでもゆくよ ここで知ったこと
幸せという夢を叶えてみせるよ
みんなと離れても どんなに遠くなっても
新しい朝に この僕は生きるよ

ひとりでもゆくよ 死にたくなっても
声が聞こえるよ 死んではいけないと
例え辛くても 闇に閉ざされても
心の奥には 明かりが灯ってるよ

巡って流れて 時は移ろいだ
もう何があったか 思い出せないけど
目を閉じてみれば みんなの笑い声
なぜかそれが今一番の宝物

I won’t be doing reviews on Sekirei and Kuroshitsuji because first they are second season shows,second they aren’t really awesome shows,third they took too long to release their second season which made me kind of lose interest in them,though I am still watching them.

Oh and do keep track of this blog because I am going to try and revive my PV subbing and youtube account.=)

R.I.P.

Well yes.For those of you who have been following tightly with my youtube account, you would’ve known that it has been terminated.For some reason, the highest views video, Tsukiakari no Michishirube got removed first, followed by Girls, Be Ambitious, which resulted in an account terminate.I have to apologise right here to those who really liked my videos and those who didn’t get to watch them yet(though it issn’t my fault since youtube removed them, not me).

In case you are wondering, I will still continue with PV subbing, thats for sure. I’ll try and find another site to post my videos instead.This time I will add download links to the videos on this site.Oh and this doesn’t mean that I will “increase my subbing speed”,cause thats never going to happen.

Alright to the next topic.Summer anime 2010 has started, but I am not going to review on them yet since not all has been released.So hear me rant about the awesome experience on 3rd july.

If anybody is to ask me “hey which is nicer?COSFEST or MASCOT PARADE?”,I would definately reply with “MASCOT PARADE!”The booths were much better,Moe Moe Kyun was seriously <3, Cosplayers were really great, and I even took loads of pictures there(just to let you people know, I don’t and really don’t like taking photos.So its really a big deal if i start taking them).

I am proud and glad to say I managed to take a picture with Madelyn!Haha.Spotted her and went up to her to ask for a photo with her.She seemed a little shocked(correct me if I am mistaken),and I apologise for that.

Strawberry Flavored Ice(cant remember the name for it) was powered up by Moe Moe Kyun, have my own personal K-ON mug, had photos taken–>all these really make my day.

Just to add, I am still doing Riot Girl.Call it a “fansubber’s break” if you want to.Just too busy(or lazy) to continue with it.Oh and Hysteric Barbie might be next,though there wont be any fancy subbings for it.

Late Update

For those who have been following my youtube channel, you would have known that I’ve released Set Me Free by Aya Hirano ages ago.Haven’t had the time to post it up here(I was just really lazy to do it actually^_^).Anyway, here it is.

I’ve realized that my blog views and jumping higher and higher these few days,which is a great news to me.I guess its most probably due to the Tsukiakari no Michishirube video I posted on youtube.Since I haven’t been posting stuff for quite a while, I’m going to do the same old song review thing.

Complication by ROOKIES IS PUNK’D(Durarara 2nd OP.Just AWESOME)

Kiseki by Greeeen(Rookies theme song.Great song+Great drama)

I’ll add more once I find more awesome songs.Do look out for Change by Miwa and GirlsDeMo album being released on 23rd June and 30th June respectively.Oh and if you are wondering whether I will do either one of the PV’s above, answer is no. Complication by ROOKIES IS PUNK’D maybe, but not Kiseki by Greeeeen.Reason why:I found somebody who did a better job, and I might upload it.

Just a final update.I’m currently working on Riot Girl by Aya Hirano.This one will be the best work I’ve ever done and most probably will be the only one.Yes, I am adding karaoke effects for this video.Its going to take quite a while(I really mean quite a while since I am only 1/8 done) but do look forward to it.

WooHoo!

Well, it may not really be a great achievement, but the video I posted,Tsukiakari no Michirube by Stereopony(link here  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LexBJuURrLc) has finally reach a total of 20,000 views!

To sort of “celebrate” this, I’ll start working on the PV,Set Me Free by Hirano Aya.Yes I know I’ve been saying this since the previous post, but for me, working on a PV requires perfect mood, or I will never start working on one.

While idling about, I’ve noticed many great songs being released.Rather than describing one by one, putting up the videos sounds much better.After all, its going to be your judgement whether or not to get them.

1)Rolling Girl.There’s two versions on this.One by Hatsune Miku, and another by Aki Akane.

Hatsune Miku Version

Aki Akane Version

2)Little Braver by Girls Dead Monster.First ever PV for Girls Dead Monster.Its going to be awesome if they form a band themselves instead of only singing for Angel Beats.

Little Braver

3)My Secret by Mizuo Saaya.Great on the whole I guess?

My Secret

4)Youkan by HEIDI.Wierd band name, but great song.Though I personally feel that the starting guitar part didn’t fit in.

Youkan

5)My Soul, Your Beats by Lia.Not a PV but I do hope they release one.

My Soul, Your Beats

6)Brave song by Aoi Tada.This song gets nicer each time you listen to it.

Brave Song

Last but not least, this was done during the idling time.

Brave song NCED(TV size)

Updates

I couldnt think of a great title that will fit in,so whenever that happens from now on,I’ll just leave it as Updates.This is going to be a long post because its been a while since I last posted something.

First things first, I’ve posted “Sayonara Memories” up on youtube.Yes its finally done, or rather it was done a few weeks ago, just that I didnt have the motivation to post it up here.

Sorry the quality isnnt that great.I couldnt get a proper converter from mkv to avi.If any of you knows of any converter that converts mkv to avi properly do tell me, I’ll be able to produce more hd videos.

For those who didnt know, here are some songs which are recently released. Recently released could mean either the PV of the song just came out, a song that is recently released or I just found out about it and it sounds great=).

Listen to the stereo by Going Underground(the pv disappointed me)

Nana-iro Generator by Nana Mizuki[Madobe Nanami](Its not bad I guess)

Shinkai Submit by Hatsune Miku(Nice!I might just sub the PV)

Marisa stole the precious thing(wierd song,but great I guess)

Boukensha Tachi(I like the chorus)

Thousand Enemies by Girls DeMo(YES ITS OUT)

Alchemy by Girls DeMo(I think I havent put this up before)

Crow Song by Girls DeMo(Girls DeMo for the win!)

My Song by Girls DeMo(Sad song really,but still awesome)

Here’s a preview on the PV I am currently working on.Its going to be in HD I think.Do look forward to it, as this is going to be the first video where translations are done by me.

Set me free by Aya Hirano

Sing a Song by Aya Hirano(This should be next)
