Music of the Week #293

Yeah, definitely not on track

Moving houses is definitely an enormous task and that’s mostly been my reason for the past few weeks of near inactivity. I’ve tried watching Bahamut but even with its returning characters, the new ones haven’t been hooking me in at all. I blame both the exhaustion from moving things and my general enslavement to RPGs these past few months. Hero Academy is probably going to be a constant for this season while I hope my interest in Bahamut returns because I can at least say I want to see what Favaro and Kaisar are up to again.

Anyways, this week’s theme is the 2nd theme for the Hunter’s Dream unlocked after the veil is lifted from reality and the Blood Moon draws close after Rom’s death. A soothing tune plays which contrasts with the bloodier sky and background that was previously completely white. Even the twisted realities of the real world during the Blood Moon phase affects the fabric of the Hunter’s Dream, which leads to a lot of questions how connected dream worlds are to each other and to the real world.

Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle Episode 4- The Truth Revealed

The truth is finally out about of the purpose of the Chaika’s.

I’m glad we’re going the through the novels at a decent pace and I hope to see how exactly the finale holds. It’s only 4 weeks but things are heating up and we got at least one conspiracy out of the way. It’s cliffhanger after cliffhanger since last week.

Also for administrative things, SAO’s mini-arc ended and it was once again not in my tastes so let’s not waste both of our times here.

Anyways, Chaika time

Closing in.

Earthbound 2

I realized that I’m looking forward to the Fall Season series but the only series I’m actually looking at are Chaika and Fate. I’m sad to see Jojo go on break but Egypt will be worth the wait. Other than that, not much else going on than just replaying some SNES games on the go while I fit in League and GA between work.

We’ve got around a month left before the season ends and I honestly can’t wait for that because this seasons was pretty lackluster. Thankfully Jojo was around to liven that up but if it weren’t for my other gaming projects, this summer was just dreadfully empty. For that reason, I was thinking of picking up Akame Ga Kill but what’s the point if I’m already spoiled on the character deaths?

We’re going to chug through the more memorable tracks of Earthbound and I’m not going to limit this to just a few tracks so bear with me if you’re not a fan. This time it’s the theme that plays with the Bee from the future telling you of your great destiny to purge evil.

Sword Art Online II Episode 6- AND IT WILL COME, LIKE A FLOOD OF PAIN

Kirito lets loose after experiencing some player killing flashbacks back from SAO. If they actually featured those kinds of fights, I wouldn’t have hated it so much. More props to you SAO, you’re actually improving yourself but unless Asuna dies, nothing shall change.

In the end however, Kirito unintentionally gets the girl while being invincible as ever. Some things truly never do change

Fanservice Series Fall 2013 Review

Standard

You all know why you’re here. Too bad though, looking for good pictures is tiresome and I thought of not doing this post at all but whatever. This is for the 3 fanservice shows and my really quick thoughts on them. If you thought there were going to be pictures, you won’t find too many. This season’s fanservice sucked, and in hindsight, it’s rarely ever good.

The faster this is done, the faster I can get to working on the Winter season.

I first want to apologize on me not being able to post for a while. I currently have to update the Author’s Corner, post on a game series, a post on some figures, get caught up on Amagami and Brave 10, aand, that’s pretty much it. The Winter season is coming to a close and that means I get to  review Guilty Crown which I have a lot of comments on, look foward to it. I will TRY to post something but for now, music posts every wednesday, I’m really sorry about this and I’m more sorry about Light not doing anything else either

Once again, this week, or rather this month is all FMA as I realized it has kickass themes. After FMA it maybe a small post on Samurai Champloo and how its musical style has led me to find some BEAUTIFUL music thanks to Nujabes. That, or I celebrate the Last Arc of Bleach and do songs from that.

Once again, I apologize. I have a shitton of outside of school activities and my brother in the house, I still need to catch up on some episodes on the series I’m watching. I have around 6-7 series I shall review by the end of the season.

In the event that I will not be able to post again this weekend (probably because I have races and debate meetings to attend) these weekly posts with songs will keep you updated, just know I ain’t dead or have run out of ideas, I’m just having very little time to work on my stuff

SO, this week’s song is the second opening of FMA, Ready Steady Go by L’arc en ciel, it’s better than the first opening for me but all of the first FMA’s openings are really good. So here you go everyone, Ready Steady Go, enjoy and thank you for staying and reading

That’s one hell of a song isn’t it? Well lemme try to raise that bar I set up by showing you something cool

Back in 2005, Nintendo released a tap-rhythm music game called Osu Tatakae Ouendan (or simply, Ouendan) for the DS which featured gameplay requiring you to hit music “markers” and get the rhythm right to score points. You played as a three man cheering squad (and later on hot cheerleaders) to help people in need. It was very well recieved for its art, gameplay, and humor which spawned a sequel and localised version here in the state. I will address the games later on if I remember to

But what does that have to do anything with this? Well I did mention “tap-rhythm music game” so just  guess what the final song is for the game

You guessed it
