Well, I posted one of my longer classics post regarding the best sports series, Slam Dunk. In order to celebrate that, lets listen to the original Japanese anime’s opening
If you read most of my classics reviews, you would have seen that it was my brother that helped me find the older series which would ultimately become the better series I would have a chance to read. Slam Dunk was probably the first series my brother read so faithfully. If I remembered correctly, he had a ton of volumes in his room a long time ago, what has happened to them now, I have no idea. But then again, he just might have borrowed them. Anyway, this was in Korea and a few months in America. Now this series is famous even in Korea, so much that the localization gave the characters korean names. It wasn’t that rare and the series usually retain the Japanese but I strictly remember Inuyasha and Slam Dunk being the few series that had localized names. Yu Yu Hakusho was literally subbed in Korean while few others held their names. In addition to Korean localization that brought korean names and dubs, we also had songs in Korean as well. Now there are a handful of ones that were actually uploaded to youtube. If I remember correctly, I uploaded the School Rumble opening as well as the Korean one. I actually liked the Korean ending (same melody and lyrical translation) but I still couldn’t find it. Oh yeah, sometimes songs are either direct translations, or completely new.
I will probably post the korean versions if I can find them, if they are good, and its japanese counterpart was selected.
So let me stop talking and just give you the song, first, the First and Original opening!
The Korean opening is pretty nostalgic, and so is the ending for me. Personally I prefer the korean ending over the japanese one while the openings are both equally awesome. Give them a hear, ya hear?
Life’s been pretty normal I guess, a week without some anime does give me more time to study.
That aside, I’m pretty sure the winter series will air in a week or two. The first impressions and the preview post will be out once most series have their pilot episodes air. Until then, I’m working on a few other reviews on other series. Not much else to talk about…
Oh yeah, thanks for visiting some of the pages everyone. Remember, pages have pictures, yes, even the pages that just link to other pages (for ex. the Author’s Corner page is a page itself and it will link to the 2011 and 2012 entries). Also whats the deal with Hidan no Aria? That’s racking up views pretty quick alongside the Yu Yu Hakusho review.
Anyways, let me stop talking and give you this week’s song. This song is debatably THE MOST cutest/heartwarming song next to Renai Circulation
You really know when it’s break when you don’t know what day of the week it is
Well this week’s song is from one of more, conclusive harem series that ended with a vote done by the fans for whom the main should get together with
Like most manga series, Ichigo 100’s anime didn’t do the series justice, and I happen to like the design in the manga version. If you haven’t seen the anime or if you haven’t read the manga, just read the manga
But I will admit, the opening of the anime is just lovely.
Lets not waste any time here
This week’s song is from the very rare Samurai Animes that aired for quite a while
Who could forget Kenshin? Our painfully kind samurai who has a pretty tragic story?
Yet another nostalgic memory for me, I remember the korean dub actually having an amazing voice cast. Unfortunetly, I couldn’t find the version of the ending I wanted, during the final lines of the chorus (mostly the final 30 seconds) I wanted the Saito fight against Kenshin instead of him going against Sanosuke.
New Picture! The last picture was Oniko while this one is Iroha from Beatmania
I really gotta go and study so heres this week’s song, the opening for the OVA of Genshiken where it covered Ogiue joining our lovable crew
It might be a while until you see this pic again, so saves!
For every 10 music vids, I will try to find a somewhat music relevant picture. If not, REPEAT!
Anyways, I want to apologize in advance because Light won’t be able to join us again this week because he has a bunch of tests the following week. If I can find the time this weekend, I’ll cover the episodes in a bunched up way. Better than nothing right?
So enjoy this week’s song while I go hunt down a non anime/JRPG character figure (Specifically, I’m hunting a figure/statue of Alduin, the World Eater Dragon deity in TES V: Skyrim)
I first want to apologize for the lack of posts. Light’s getting piled up with homework and he got his Ipad stolen. To top that off, Mutsu no Hana (mashiro iro psp) arrived for him and his psp followed, so that bastard is gonna be more preocupied(at least I get to play the other game he ordered). I have been preocupied with my schoolwork as well and I’ve been doing some thinking of taking an instrument or take another language. Anyways enough of that
So I apologize, I will try my best to make Light get back to work. But have no fear! Winter Break is in 2-3 weeks!
So enough about us, that really belonged in the Author’s Corner but oh well
Enjoy this week’s song: Hitori no Yoru with one kickass chorus
