The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Lina – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”

By TheBigN

I’d try to make an “Inverse” joke here, but I don’t really feel up to it today. Instead, here is another set of two polls of interesting songs in the tournament, that starts of with an interesting bang, I think.

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Jigglypuff – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”

Given the nature of the Pokemon, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a sleep-inducing bracket on initial glance. Thankfully, this is not the case, as the two polls here keep things lively in a good way. Continue reading ‘The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Jigglypuff – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”’

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Alpha Polls 1-4 “Analysis”

By TheBigN

I was relatively late to the party for something like this new tournament.  Music is something that I hope most people enjoy listening to, and definitely there have been more than a handful of anime that I decided to pick up due to music associated with it, from openings and endings to background music. So I feel like I should have been paying attention to something like this from the get-go,  or at least from the nominations stage. Others have said that I have “questionable” taste in music (:)), so at least my potential nominations might have made things interesting, although an analysis of the results of the nominations point out that such a decision might have been moot. This is too good to pass up though, so I’ve participated in the Prediction Challenge, and I wanted to put in my two cents on the songs that are on the ballot as the tournament goes, especially as there’s a fair bit that I haven’t heard before (which is always exciting). This will be pretty tongue in cheek and probably not up to how I usually write on the blog, but it’s good to be reactionary than thoughtful sometimes. And it will probably make me put more effort on this blog than I’ve been doing in the past two years combined. Whether or not that’s a good thing is anybody’s guess.

Guilty Crown/Kung Fu Love

by dm00

Guilty Crown is definitely turn-off-your-brain eye-candy. Nonsense, but very pretty nonsense.

In a way it’s a pity that so much talent is being used in the service of such nonsense, but Studio 4C has taught me that, if it’s pretty enough, I won’t mind if it’s nonsense:

Update: The youtube snapshot has horrid jaggies, the video is a bit better (and, it’s part of Studio-4C’s Amazing Nuts!, there are ways to find better versions of this short film). When you get to the six-minute mark you’ll see why Inori’s leap into space in Guilty Crown 4 reminded me of this sequence.
