Single of the Week: "Lilium" by Kumiko Noma (Elfen Lied OST)


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
It’s that time again for trick-or-treating and telling ghost stories, so in commemoration for this scary holiday, I’d like to recommend my favorite horror series, Ellfen Lied. An intense thriller that walks a fine line between crazy and insanity. It’s very gory. Very violent. I think you get the gist. Continue reading

Single of the Week: "Main Theme" by Kenji Kawai (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni OST)


Thanks to Mrs Blunder of
Project Otaku, I got the idea to feature this creepy anime song as the single of this week. Kenji Kawai is one of my favorite anime composers and I believe this song perfectly captures his grasp for the eerie. And Higurashi has plenty of that.

Single of the Week: "Kuchizuke" by Buck-Tick (Shiki OP1)



Sorry for the inactivity these past two weeks. Midterms are always pretty time consuming.

Single of the Week: "Complication" by ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D (Durarara!! OP2)

ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D is a Japanese band I am more familiar with, due to their collaborations in Ao no Exorcist and Bleach. Their music is the kind of music you would generally find in my ipod. Out of the two openings of Drrr!!, “Complication” is my favorite. After all, the anime can be quite complicated. Starting with the name. It is quite a mouthful, but fun to say. Continue reading

Single of the Week: "V.I.P" by SID (Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic OP)

I thought “V.I.P” by SID, was a really good song choice for Magi – an adventure series about a young magician named, Aladdin. Yes, we’ve all heard that story before. But I doubt we’ve ever heard of an anime adaptation before. Anyway, the first season premiered around the same time last year. I was never particularly fond of the anime, but for some reason, I am oddly excited for its second season, which is due to air this coming October. Continue reading
