My turn again. And this time I thought I’d inject a bit of metal into the anime blog community’s collective heart. Not literally though, you understand…

I personally think Maximum The Hormone are underrated. They have very little exposure over here in the UK, especially in comparison to other Japanese acts like Dir en grey, X Japan or even l’Arc~en~Ciel. They deserve more exposure, for continually belting out sweet hits like this. On a sidenote, Ue-chan is one of my top three favourite bassists (and now you know what instrument I play).

This song is anime-related, and it isn’t a theme. What a brilliant paradox. Anyway, the song’s about Frieza from the Dragon Ball series, who is one of the best villains to appear in any media. Everyone who’s an anime fan should have heard of him, whether they’ve seen DBZ or not. 「F」 is a nice tribute to him, and puts some rock music into the Japanese music scene, which is needed compared to the amount of pop.

Good old Frieza…

I know this is a little short (ha, Frieza’s first form joke…) but I’m currently making an Ending Quiz! Well, I have a list… That I’m currently looking at, sighing…
