[Song Review] Umi no Yurei (Ghost of the Sea) / Kenshi Yonezu “Children of the Sea” Main Theme

Even if it has not passed two weeks from reveal, this music video was played more than 18,000,000 times. That is a tremendous number. The long-awaited new song of Kenshi Yonezu is the main theme song of an animation movie “Children of the Sea”. The song called “Ghost of the Sea”. You can hear the song in the official MV↓ One of the first things I thought about it was that it was super difficult to sing with the pitch going up and down. Sadly I cannot sing on the original pitch.. With the song being the main theme of the movie, it became music that focused a lot on the singing itself and the orchestral sound. It is a magnificent yet beautiful ballad. In terms of sound, the piano and the strings are emphasized so as not to get in the way of vocals. It is really cinematic arrange. You can also hear sounds like dolphins call in the interlude. I felt like healing effect is there for taking with amazing Yonezu voice along with the dolphins crying. How to build Chorus is a word of style. The melodic and dramatic vocals of Yonezu Kenshi overflows like a waterfall […]

Mumei the most Kawaii anime girl in 2019!! “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” is a MUST WATCH!!

The medium-length animation movie “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato”, which was finally released in May 10 in Japan. I watched the show immediately! And that was fantastic! It was a worth of waiting for three years since the TV series ended!!!! This time, Kabaneri lover Animachi talks up the highlight of “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” without a spoiler as much as possible! Absolutely Beautiful Drawings It was like this from the TV series, but the character and the background are incredibly beautiful. It is surprising that the beautiful characters designed by Mikimoto are described like this. It is amazing when Mumei’s face comes close to the camera. And the scenery of Unato that became the stage of this work is really beautiful. It is just crazy good background drawing. The cut that Japan’s land is burning in red comes at the last OP theme picture is so damn cool. It makes me shaking. Super Speedy Action Scenes The action scene is scaled up compared to the TV series. WIT STUDIO is known as the studio created “Attack on Titan” anime series as well, but they are so good at moving characters […]

Netflix New Original Anime “ULTRAMAN” is damn so Good!!【Are you on Netflix yet?】

This is no longer an anime, we should call it a Film . Netflix original animation “ULTRAMAN” which was released from April 1 when the new era of Reiwa was announced in Japan. The director is the strongest tag of “Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C.” Kenji Kamiyama x “APPLESEED” Shinji Aramaki. The original Manga is in popular in monthly magazine called Heroes. As I watched up to 4 episodes immediately, I will introduce the highlight without spoiling as much as possible. I use a term Ultraman as old SFX, and ULTRAMAN as the new Netflix CG anime. I have seen Ultraman when I was very small, of course I do not remember the contents. The memories of having parents buy Ultraman dolls are something I recall from Ultraman. Still, there is something exciting when you hear the power word called the Spacium Beam. You know Japanese boys, right? Although it is me not very familiar with Ultraman, I enjoyed Netflix “ULTRAMAN” a lot. I started watching Ultraman feeling nostalgic, like “Oh Ultraman huh?? Just give it a shot”. But once I started watching it, I realized I had finished watching 4 episodes right away. A completely new science fiction anime […]

【Year of 2019】Cool & Moody!Special Feature on Jazz×Anime Song!!

  • 2019.03.27

Jazz × Anime Song special feature that jazzy anison favorite Animachi sends! Choose jazz songs from the original songs rather than so-called jazz arrangements! It’s mainly songs with a singer but there are also instrumental songs. People who don’t usually listen to jazz may have an esoteric image of jazz, but don’t worry because it’s so easy to listen to any song and so cool. I think that the song introduced this time is good as an entrance to jazz. And for all the jazzy enthusiasts, there are jazz in Anime Songs! “Lupin The 3rd Theme” and “Tank!” are so famous that I have omitted this time. Well, Spike is there for the eye-catch image as he is the most stylish Anime character I believe. Anyway, let’s go to the world of Jazz × Anime Song! ※アイキャッチ画像:『カウボーイ・ビバップ』OPより ©Sunrise DOWN TOWN – Maaya Sakamoto “Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru” OP theme. A cover song of Sugar Babe.

Zettai Zetsumei / Lamp – Cö shu Nie “The Promised Neverland” ED

Well this is the strong candidate for the Best Song of 2019 Winter Anime. It is “Zettai Zetsumei” / “Lamp” by the progressive rock band Cö shu Nie who was in charge of the ED of the anime “The Promised Neverland”. Cö shu Nie are doing something really aggressive! I am surprised that there are people in Japan who play such music. I remembered the American rock band called The Mars Volta. By the way, the first impression of “Zettai Zetsumei” was the base line that goes extremely wild. The main part of the anime has a thriller element, and from that reason the intro of that bad-ass bass matches quite a lot. The following piano riffs sounds good too. And that melody of the chorus part. Where the hell that idea come from, Cö shu Nie? For those of you who are not listening please listen once. You feel somewhat uneasy don’ you. This song strikes in the atmosphere of “The Promised Neverland”. And from 9 episodes ED suddenly changes to the song called “Lamp”. This is yet again a super cool song. It is a song that you can see the lamp of hope compared to “Zettai Zetsumei”. […]

“Bon♡Kyu♡Bon♡ ha Kare no Mono♡” – Sumire Uesaka MV Dropped!Spring 2019 anime “Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?” OP Theme Song

A Massive MV has been released in Otaku World. Spring 2019 “Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?” OP theme, its name is “Bon♡Kyu♡Bon♡ ha Kare no Mono♡”. Well it is really hard to tell you what “Bon♡Kyu♡Bon♡ ha Kare no Mono♡” means in English but you SENSE it, right?? This is something like “My whole body is yours”. Umm, it should be more than that. C’mon, What the hell is going on here in Japan? The charming voice actress Sumire Uesaka aka Sumipe DID it. When I saw a thumbnail and a title of this PV, thought it was something like MAD, but guys, it is OFFICIAL. And it is full size video of almost 5 minutes. What a job done by Sumipe . Is the voice actress nowadays doing this far? It’s too sexy! King Records you are doing well! Where is the censorship on YouTube? You are cute when hair is up! If a boy finds a porn by the river, it is definitely the sense of Japanese middle-aged guys. And the popular voice actor is completely treated as a porn. Amazing. Geek kids who have a smartphone will be playing this video every night. The song is also […]

Anime Movie “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” Main PV Dropped!On screen from May 10th in Japan!Also available on Netflix & Amazon Prime Video!!

Are you a man or a kabane or a kabaneri? A sequel to “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress” (2016), depicting the battle between humans and immortal monsters and Kabane on the stage of the Industrial Revolution era. Finally the main PV is dropped! ! Our “kabaneri” is back! I am a huge fan of “Kabaneri” , so I am really glad that the sequel is completed. I have been waiting for three years! “Kabaneri” was a very high-quality, great animation, with drawing, directing, art, character design, voice actors, stories, accompaniment, and OPED themes. God anime to say the least. It is not inferior at all even if we watch now in 2019. It is one of the works that triggered me to immerse in animation world. At that time, I was impressed by the fact that drawings by Mikimoto moved so smooth. “Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – Battle of Unato” is a completely new theatrical animation which pictured 6 months after the “Kabaneri” TV series. Have you all watched PV? I watched more than 10 times. Rokkonseijo!! What a great PV!! The final part where Mumei acrobatically moves the gun. WIT STUDIO, you are amazing!! And I am glad […]

Spring 2019 Anime”Sarazanmai” Main PV released!OP&ED Theme Song revealed!!

Actually I didn’t check this anime too often, but it looks like a very good anime indeed. The latest work “Sarazanmai” directed by the genius Kunihiko Ikuhara has been released. If you watched “MAWARU-PENGUINDRUM” (2011), you can tell in a single shot that “Sarazanmai” was made by Ikuhara. Although I have not watched “The Girl Revolution Utena” (1997) (I’m sorry), “MAWARU-PENGUINDRUM” is my all-time favorite animation. It is also a very difficult piece to talk about though. Both the script and the director always went up diagonally, and it was betrayed in a good sense every story. It is a mysterious and fascinating work that is very abstract but strong in time and message. This is not a story limited to animation, but works that can be interpreted in various ways by the recipient are the proof of great piece of art. By the way, this is “Sarazanmai”, but it has a story line where three junior high school boys meet a mysterious Kappa (one of Japanese Traditional monsters who lives in waterside) and the boys are transformed into Kappas, and they want them to return to human. Kunihiko Ikuhara is the Franz Kafka in the anime world. How is […]

Spring 2019 animation “Fairy gone” PV Dropped!

PV of original Spring 2019 animation “Fairy gone” by P.A.WORKS has been released. PA recently made more serious anime in “Sirius the Jaeger” in Summer 2018 as it is, they may find themselves to make an anime of this taste. I feel like the youth thing has completely done in “Irozuku: The World in Colors” of the autumn 2018. Irozuku was a very high quality wonderful animation. It was a great ending. By the way, for “Fairy gone” music production is (K) NoW_NAME. Release of OP & ED theme is 4/24. I still remember “Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash” (2016) was good when (K) NoW_NAME did music production. It seems that the feeling of watching the PV is a theme of war. The fantasy element of the fairy is mixed there. The battle scene is also good, but I would like P.A.’s special human drama to be included. It is likely to be a hard-line anime. Character design is also my favorite. the girl with glasses is particularly good. Can they surpass Sirius? I am looking forward to it. The broadcast will start from April 7th. I would love to have it on Netflix too. ©2019 Five fairy scholars / […]

“Memosepia / Gray” – sajou no hana (2019/03)『Mob Phycho 100 II』 ED

sajou no hana is good, eh? A project launched by Sho Watanabe, a composer who worked on songs such as LiSA and ClariS. I have been a fan from the ED “Hoshie” of the animation “Sirius the Jaeger” produced by PA Works in 2018. This time, it looks like “Memosepia / Gray” on both sides. Sana’s vocal is sajouno hana’s appealing point . The way of singing is my favorite food. Don’t sing too much. All songs will be heard nostalgically. The sophisticated band sound is also cool. The quality of the music is very high. In terms of sound, I think that the heart of “Memosepia” sound is electric guitar and drums. There is a feeling of speeding. I can’t play this quick in drumming! How far does Anison’s tempo go up? The bass line is quite interesting too at chorus. “Memosepia” is also good, but honestly “Gray” felt more like sajou no hana to me. It is a music that the scene comes to mind. I think this poetic and quiet atmosphere is unique to sajou no hana. The flow of Verse-Bridge-Chorus is very beautiful. The last robotic voice also impresses me a lot. It is also interesting […]
