Blasting My Headphones: RADWIMPS – 前前前世 (Zen Zen Zense)

Having been astounded by ALL OFF's Refrain Boy, I want to let in two of the more traditional rock songs that I've come to take huge interest in. First up we have an insert song from the ever so high grossing anime film, 君の名は。(Kimi no Na Wa./Your Name). https://www.youtube.com/embed/PDSkFeMVNFs   Like movie, like song. It went and garnered various… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: RADWIMPS – 前前前世 (Zen Zen Zense)

Blasting My Headphones: ALL OFF – リフレインボーイ (Refrain Boy)

The time when anime songs happen to be pure J-Rock is now rare. ALL OFF however managed to save us some time with their great tunes. https://www.youtube.com/embed/lZLEXj52lcc   This seriously bad-ass rock song is used as an ending to the anime Mob Psycho 100. Attention to the details Yes. You did hear fluent English in there!… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: ALL OFF – リフレインボーイ (Refrain Boy)

Blasting My Headphones: Earphones – それが声優! (Sore ga Seiyuu!)

Let me first get a horrible joke out of the way. Blasting my headphones with music from Earphones, hah! A personal description to this song would be 'feeling fancy while kicking ass in Kung-Fu'. That was at least how I felt when my ears got used to the tunes this song provided. I would then… Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: Earphones – それが声優! (Sore ga Seiyuu!)

Songs by Seiyuu: What is the deal now? (Part 4)

The deal is what is being represented by the picture above; these four voice actresses, each well known for their roles in anime, have formed an idol unit. They are not the first to do so and they will not be the last. So I had set myself a criteria for writing this part a long… Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: What is the deal now? (Part 4)

Songs by Seiyuu: Seiyuu = Idol(s) (Part 3)

THE iDOLM@STER may have brought the idol vibes into anime but there were still gaps left to fill, some aspects to master (what a pun!). Anime fans were starting to accept that their voice actors (VA) do pretty much everything a non anime related idol could. Though they were only starting to, not entirely. What THE… Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: Seiyuu = Idol(s) (Part 3)

Songs by Seiyuu: Following through (Part 2)

At this point (K-On! madness) it became clear that the bar to becoming a seiyuu has been raised. I'm very certain that a few paragraphs to do with 'singing & promotional live events' have been added in any given contract for new VA's at the time. I'm not saying that seiyuu cannot sing; it was more… Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: Following through (Part 2)

Songs by Seiyuu: What was the deal then? (Part 1)

I think that I'll be doing this in three or four parts instead of a one big and long post, for personal reasons... From about this time (Japan's 2017 winter anime season) and onward, it is safe to say that you'll never again, come across a season without at least two or three anime titles… Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: What was the deal then?
