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.
Still staying slightly relevant with the series here, as this SOTW is for an anime from last year.
The manga ended in ’95 though…
But hey, Parasyte is kind of a horror/sci-fi classic of a manga, so an anime theme was bound to come along eventually. And the theme’s even by my favourite electronicore band: Fear, And Loathing In Las Vegas.
…Not much more to really say here. I still haven’t seen or read Parasyte even though I keep telling myself to, and I love the band who wrote the theme. That’s about it.
Well, since I’ve just finished a seven-day work week of all evening shifts, this won’t be a long post. It’s already 2 days late, to be fair.
Anyway, since BLEACH ended recently, and I did a whole SOTW about that, Nisekoi also ended recently too. I really liked Nisekoi, and was happy with the ending, as the girl Raku ended up with was my favourite of the main love interests (look how non-spoilery that was!).
However, if you want my favourite character in the entire series, that would be Ruri Miyamoto. What’s more, Nisekoi: (the second anime series) gives her seiyuu an ending theme to sing, which just so happens to be this. And it’s cute.
This week my song of the week is a theme to a recent anime!
Thank the planets that aligned to allow a manga I was reading to have an opening theme by a band I like when it got an anime.
