Just Anime » Favorite Songs in Anime?

Crunchyroll posted a nice article giving a list of great anime openings, pre-2000. I think it's relevant to this thread. xD

Funny story about the Sailormoon opening. When I was a child (pre-5 years old) I loved Sailormoon. And apparently during one of my pre-school's talent shows or something, I actually got up and sang the Sailormoon theme (in English though) for the show. My mom keeps telling me about it, but I don't remember ever doing that. =\

Just Anime » Looking for some horror/dark/action anime to watch?

I'm currently watching Deadman Wonderland (at funimation.com). It's alright. Sort of like a summer action movie. It reminded me of Death Race, some gore and violence. Pretty easy to watch, good animation.

Elfen Lied is really great. I think of the anime suggested so far Elfen Lied is the most 'psychological horror'.

Madoka and Death Note aren't really horror. Madoka is a magical girl anime with darker twists. Death Note is a really great psychological thriller.

If you're thinking of checking out a really good psychological horror movie I can highly recommend Perfect Blue.

General Discussion » Newbie Alert: Learning anime: started with Mushi Shi

Here is an unofficial list of all anime available online for free legally, the poster tries to keep it up to date.

I don't have netflix so I don't know what anime they have.

I have not watched Mushishi, but off the top of my head I can recommend Steins;gate and Time of Eve. However I don't think either of them are available for free (legally) online anymore..

Consider watching something that is currently airing. The spring season of anime has just starting, and it's always exciting to see an anime as it's airing before everyone decides to form an opinion about it. Of the one's that I am watching, I would recommend Kids On The Slope. Not really related to Mushishi, but I think it's looking to be one of the best anime this year. It's available on crunchyroll.

Prepare to be bombarded with anime suggestions, but in the end just watch what you like dude. :)

Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine » Thoughts on this series?

So I'm thinking of checking out Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. It's streaming at funimation.com!

Anyone have any thoughts on the series so far? Was the original series any good? I haven't watched either yet (but I'm probably going watch the first episode of the new series tonight or tomorrow).

So I'm watching some episodes of Amagami SS+ right now, and I'm beginning to realize how soothing some of its OST is.. Very light music overall, good elevator music, and I don't mean that in a bad way. One of the better light romantic comedy series in recent years.

Just Anime » Favorite Songs in Anime?

For whatever reason, this song popped into my head today. "merodiii, something something sommeething." At first I was like... where was this song from? I couldn't remember, but after going down the list of anime I watched on myanimelist.com I remembered it was the ending from Tokyo Magnitude 8! It's about a young brother and sister, who are caught in an earthquake and have to make their way back home. Great, emotional story, I'd recommend it to just about anyone. I watched it about 2 years ago now (I think).

Enjoy :) This song is great on a sunny spring/summer day.

@takashichea: That opening looks sick. I want to start watching more 'old' anime, lol.

Just Anime » Favorite Songs in Anime?

Funnily enough, I just searched "anime ost silence" to see if there was a song that was actually called "Silence".. and there is! Here it is, it's from Love Hina. Funny story about Love Hina, as an early teenager (10-13 years) I started specifically looking up ecchi/fan servicey anime and Love Hina was one of the anime I liked back then. (You know how young boys are.. "omg boobies!") I don't think I finished watching all the episodes.

Chobits was another anime I watched simply because it had a cute girl. I remember thinking, "omggg I want a cute persecom toooo <3333" This is one of the lighter songs in the series OST.

Naoto Shirogane » Naoto look-a-like goes to my school, is a boy..

I thought I'd share a short event from my life...

So the other day as I was crossing a busy intersection at school, I saw someone who looked like Naoto Shirogane. This person had the dark blue hat, jacket, and the hair sticking out under the hat was so similar too! Interestingly I immediately started wondering whether this was a guy or a girl. Then I saw, since I was standing behind, on this Naoto look-a-like's backpack, there was a pin saying "I'm a boy." So, he's apparently a guy. He was also asian and wore those typical black thick rimmed glasses that are so "fashionable" these days.

Looked more like how Naoto looks on the far right pic except a bit older...

Honestly I felt like saying out loud "omg it's Naoto!" But I didn't, it was really cool though, and I was all smiling and happy on the inside. xD

Anyone else have similar experiences, where you see someone who looks like someone from an anime/game?

@Addfwyn: Ahh that's right, I remember reading that some japanese adults like smoking while playing at arcade. That sucks.

Japan » Things TO Do In Japan

I don't see "go to arcades" anywhere. Which has been my main reason for years for wanting to go to Japan. Every other reason came after that, going to hotsprings, eating sushi and ramen, going to traditional shrines and festivals etc.

@sickVisionz: I was exaggerating.

One more chance, one more time by Masayoshi Yamazaki gets played near the end in the anime movie 5 Centimeters per Second. It's a romantic, longing kind of song. Great movie and it does a great job of concluding the movie. From what I remember, there was not much vocal music throughout the movie. There was piano and instrumental music though. So the vocals coming in at the end with this song is sort of like the main character finally releasing his feelings and thoughts. It's not really happy, but not really sad either.

Just Anime » Favorite Songs in Anime?

Damn I've been looking for a particular song from Gankutsuou... and I've finally found it! Here it is, those opening strummed guitar chords (0:13 seconds) cued at just the right moments in the series, making things tense and agitated. I don't even think they used the whole song in the series, because all I remember of this song was those chords >.>

Also remember this isn't just limited to opening/endings, although typically those are the songs we'll remember the most, there are some great OSTs out there. :)

@takashichea: I was pleasantly surprised by both songs. :) Pretty cool choices. The second song reminds me of Hyadain's songs (he did the openings for Nichijou). I feel like sometimes I just need to indulge my cute, happy side and those kinds of songs(and music videos) hit the spot.

Alright my turn again. Another fairly recent song:

For You by Rie Fu, the ending for the anime series Wandering Son. Not much of a fan of pop rock music, but I think the song fit well for the ending. The chorus says "I wanna cry for you", but does not say any particular individual. This is typical pop love song stuff to make it seem like the singer is singing for you (the listener)... But if you look at it like the song is about the anime characters, you could say that the song is being sung by Takatsuki for Shuichi (two of the main characters who have complicated feelings for each other).

I'm gonna post both the anime ending and the official music video, just so you can have an idea how the ending shows the main character (Shuichi) and eventually meeting Takatsuki at the end:

Honestly this could go on forever, and I tried searching and only found a favorite music thread, here.

Rules: - Post ONE/TWO songs at a time, maybe also give an explanation on why you like it so much.

- Song must have been played in the anime. Includes insert songs, theme songs and original soundtrack.

- No bashing other peoples tastes.

- If available, embed a streaming video/audio of the song into your post (like from youtube).

So I'll start... The opening theme for Kuragehime: Koko Dake No Hanashi by Chatmonchy

I have had very positive things to say about Kuragehime ^-^ (which you can read in the Kuragehime forum). This song just fits so well with the tone of the show and the characters. The animated opening is also very well done. It's upbeat, somewhat whimsical or awkward, hopeful and fun. :)

Now your turn. >=D
