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

By TheBigN

Like the post from the Naota bracket, I post here with one half of brackets completed, and the other half close to finishing. As were nearing the end of the first round, hopefully things will become a little easier to work on. As for now, here’s some more interesting pieces to listen to.

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

By TheBigN

Do these two polls have Guts? I’m hoping they do, as Fate’s bracket definitely had some pretty damn good songs like that.  Continue reading ‘The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Guts – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”’

Impressions on a Year 2008: Scintillating Soundtracks

By TheBigN

Part 1: Interesting People
Part 2: Awesome OP/EDs
Part 3: Fun Phrases

Unlike the openings and closings of anime this year, good standalone series soundtracks (that is, good in my subjective lack of taste sense) have been hard to find for me, which is a little sad. That said, there were some pretty nice ones that I felt provided a complete listening experience, or ones that kept my interest throughout (sorry Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-, Spice and Wolf and Kamen no Maid Guy. Yes, I do include the latter here). Feel free to tell me hour wrong I am here, and some better choices, as well as some that I should hear as well (like the Naburi no Ou OST, which I should check out soon). Again, musical taste is subjective, and mine could be sorely lacking. 😛

Impressions on a Year 2008: Awesome OPs/EDs

By TheBigN

Part 1: Interesting People

This year was insane with the amount of anime openings and endings that I liked, and it was hard to narrow down the amount to a “reasonable” number… so I didn’t really attempt to. But these ones here (coupled with Youtube videos) are the ones that stick in my mind the most over the year visually, aurally, or both. That being said, there is a list of Honorable Mentions at the end of the post to include OP/EDs that were also good, but stuff I could easily leave as well. I’m much more critical of music than I am of anime, but doesn’t mean that I have standards. 😛

Some Macross F Vocal Collection Nyan Tama: Blown Away By Love Power

By TheBigN(yan Nyan)

So the awaited third “OST” for Macross Frontier has come out, and as the vocal tracks really stand out from the superb background music for me, I’m elated.  I haven’t even really begun to go through the entire album, so I haven’t listened to the epicness that apparently is the Nyan Nyan Service Medley. Nor for the time being will I probably do a review of the entire work or make a mixtape of the best of the best, though I should. I’m happy that they’ve included some intrumental versions of some songs like “Anata no Oto” as well as some more odds and ends from the show that I wanted to hear in the first two OSTs. But for me, the best part of the album is the fact that there are seven standalone versions of “Aimo” across the two CD set.

For something completely different, why is he on here when he does not sing?!?

Thankful for Anime, 2008

By TheBigN

When I did this last year, I thought I was a little unique for setting it up the way I did. Turns out that this same format (and the title even), had been done for years past by one Jason Miao. Goes to show you how originality is hard to come by (orz). But it still is a good time to be thankful for yet another fun year in new anime series.
