Carrying on from my Anisong lyricists appreciation post, I'll be sharing one grand example of how creative Japanese people can actually be when it comes to music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNkL6A1WRY8 This song started it all - a romance story that should please many females in anime community. Try out the English lyrics "I'm sorry if… Continue reading Using music lyrics to make up a story: HoneyWorks featuring (Vocaloid)GUMI – 告白予行練習 (Kokuhaku Yokō Renshū)
Here it is! Another dose of sweetness, brought to you by the pop lady, ZAQ. Her music composition skills is hard to rival - it is so unique calling her music just pop would be a mistake. Then she started singing. Look how far she has come! Holy, my praise~ So in this instance of… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: ZAQ – 君のとなりに (Kimi no Tonari ni)
I know - you saw this one coming from lightyears away! Megumi's first character song, M♭, was good and all but it didn't quite sound like her (Megumi) to me. I mean, that's the point of a character song. So our main heroine is back to bat other girls out of her way in second… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: Katou Megumi (CV Yasuno Kiyono) – ETERNAL♭
I did as I promised (to myself). Finally, I got hold of six bonus CD's for the OST!

It is a romantic… Continue reading Hopefully the last time I sing praise for Saekano’s Official Soundtracks

But it does indeed bring back funny memories. I'm sure it's still the case even for today. There are… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: HINOI Team – YEAH!
Would you believe that I stumbled upon this song by accident? I dropped Dragon Ball Super as soon as Frieza turned golden. A good thing about long running shows is that they are not afraid to use any type of music for the openings/endings. They don't need to have deep meaning or be 100% related… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: Miyu Inoue – Boogie Back
Look, the anime is highly controversial but both the opening and ending songs definitely are not! That's where, without any shame, I give you the song that I sometimes put on loop during the day (obviously not at night or I won't be sleeping). It is used as an ending theme to the anime Eromanga-sensei.… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: TrySail – adrenaline!!!
