I’m aware I’m late again. Sorry. Work and all, it’s just how it is nowadays – I barely have any time for anything else.
Still, I have time to listen to music now and again, as it doesn’t take up much of my attention. And a song I’ve rediscovered my love for recently is this one. Nana Kitade will always be a favourite of mine, and time only cements that statement.
‘Lamia’ also has the slightest of anime links – it is the “B-side” to ‘Punk&Baby’s’, a single which held a second cover version of an earlier Kitade single, ‘Kesenai Tsumi’, which as you may remember was an FMA ending.
So yeah… Enjoy.
Yes, yes. I know I’m late again. See my last SOTW for the reasons why, as they’re still viable excuses.
And as I’ve just finished work at 11.30pm, and need to be in the walk-in centre tomorrow at 8am, this’ll be quick.
Say what you will about ‘Wolf’s Rain’, but the art was damn good, and the music was damn beautiful. And these two aspects cannot be argued. I’ve talked about ‘Gravity’ before in a SOTW, and that is a haunting song. Well, the opening here’s just as haunting a melody, but having more an overall rock sound.
Sorry this is late, but I had minor surgery recently, and what with me working 5 days this past week AND daily visits to the walk-in medical center, I haven’t had the time to get this written out.
So, its going to be a bit short, but don’t assume I don’t like this song that much. In fact, I love this thing.
RWBY vol. 4 started airing just over two weeks ago, and I’m reminded of why I love it. Great setting, plot, characters, animation (which gets better every volume) and on top of all that, great music.
I’m pretty sure you’re tired of me talking about RWBY by now, so I’ll just leave the opening animation here and get ready for work.
Yup, this week’s SOTW is by the band who made me such a big J-Rock fan – L’Arc~en~Ciel.
I cannot stress enough how much I love this band. There’s a reason they’ve been going since 1991, and still are going off and on to this day. I love each song they create. Plus, there’s the fact that they’ve done themes to a ton of anime – DNA² (Blurry Eyes – 1994), Fullmetal Alchemist (Ready Steady Go – 2004, Link – 2005), Rurouni Kenshin (The Fourth Avenue Cafe – 1997), Great Teacher Onizuka (Driver’s High – 1999), Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Daybreak’s Bell – 2007) and Moribito (Shine – 2008).
I personally recommend giving all of those a listen.
Anyway, when Devil May Cry 4 was released in Japan, they got to write the theme to that too.
So, here it is.
Alright, another weekend of pure 9 hour shifts with very little time in-between (minus all the sleep, catching up on youtube, wrestling, and all the other crazy stuff I miss when in work) to get this up. So sue me.
Anywho, I have a day off today, so I finally have an actual SOTW up. Sorry not much thought’s been put into it, it just happened to be in my head at the moment. It’s the second Death Note ending, because if you haven’t figured out yet, I love Death Note. And Maximum The Hormone.
And this involves both.
