Weekend Japanatainment - Asian Kung Fu Generation

Jun 05 // Red Veron
[embed]35073:5676:0[/embed] Song: "Rewrite" Album: Sol-fa (2004) Here is the song that put them on the map. This song was one of the later openings to the wildly popular Fullmetal Alchemist and this is one pretty good song to have in your opening. Fast and loud that is just good to get you ready for the more intense parts of the show.   [embed]35073:5677:0[/embed] Song: "Loop & Loop" Album: Sol-fa (2004) Here is a song that shows off their more chill side. Slower than other Ajikan songs that are more apt for anime openings, this is just one of their songs that is good for winding down but still retaining their great melody and other good stuff I cannot articulate since I do not know much about music terminology.   [embed]35073:5679:0[/embed] Song: "After Dark" Album: World World World (2008) A pretty good song that became an opening to the anime Bleach. The Bleach anime already has a lot really good opening visuals but I think this song just made that opening so much better.   [embed]35073:5674:0[/embed] Song: "Easter" Album: Wonder Future (2015) Here is something form their latest album and I've only listened to very little of it but I do like what I've heard so far. I am gonna listen to more on my upcoming trip and I plan to savor every second of it.   [embed]35073:5675:0[/embed] Song: "Re Re" Album: Sol-fa (2004) Anime: ERASED - A town without me When I sat down to watch the first episode of the ERASED anime, I was greeted by this song that sounded really familiar and suited the opening really well. Then I looked it up and realized that it was from one of Ajikan's early albums and that I had already listened to it for dozens of times in the past. I thought it was perfect in choice due to its quality and how it relates to the show's setting.   Is there an Ajikan song that you love? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

Week Ender - Super Sentai Edition

May 28 // Red Veron
[embed]35052:5653:0[/embed] Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger (2011) This is the 35th anniversary entry in the long-running Super Sentai series, with the rangers having the special ability of transforming into past rangers and using the past rangers' special abilities in fighting evil. This season was also used to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers.   [embed]35052:5654:0[/embed] Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (2009) I loved this season since it was more serious and not as goofy as the other seasons. The theme was all about Samurai, the sword wielding loyal warrior servants from olden Japan, and the samurai in the show portrayed with reverence.   [embed]35052:5655:0[/embed] Hikari Sentai Maskman (1987) Sorry, I couldn't find the original Japanese version which have disappeared since the last time I checked. This ending is the version I grew up watching in the Philippines every Sunday afternoon and I always enjoyed the ending since it was still action packed like the opening.   [embed]35052:5656:0[/embed] Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger (1992) This is the strangest and most fun ending here from the show that was the basis for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Enjoy the song.   Is there a Super Sentai show that you love? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

[embed]35043:5647:0[/embed] Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger (1992) This is the season that became the basis for Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers and started the series. The adaptation only took footage from the source and not much in the premise of the original.   [embed]35043:5648:0[/embed] Hikari Sentai Maskman (1987) This is the show that I grew up watching every Sunday evening in the Philippines, and I have a very soft spot for this show.   [embed]35043:5649:0[/embed] Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger (2012) This is a parody of Super Sentai and a comedy that celebrates the superhero franchise as well as poking fun at it at times.   [embed]35043:5650:0[/embed] Toei's Spider-Man (1978) Why is this one here? This show happens to be the reason we have the iconic giant piloted mecha in the Super Sentai. The show is written more like a Japanese tokusatsu show than the comic books they were based on though US comics at the time were just as ridiculous with the plot lines but more grounded. This Spider-Man also shows up in the Spider-Verse event last year along with his giant robot.   [embed]35043:5651:0[/embed] Battle Fever J (1979) This show was considered to be the first Super Sentai show until 1995 when the two shows that came before it were considered to be part of the Super Sentai. This show is also a Marvel co-production and is considered to be part of the Marvel Multiverse.   Is there a Super Sentai or Power Rangers opening that you love?

Week Ender - JC Staff Edition

May 21 // Red Veron
[embed]35028:5630:0[/embed] "Let me be with you" Anime: Ikkitousen For  a show about busty beauties beating each other up while ripping each other's clothes off in the process, this ending happens to be more serene and gentle while tugging on some emotional heartstrings using a song that you wouldn't expect in such a show.   [embed]35028:5631:0[/embed] "Nippon Egao Hyakkei" Anime: Joshiraku This is a show that is super dense with Japanese culture references old and new that it makes it very unlikely to ever be localized in the West. Props to the person who did the fansub, you the real MVP. This is an enjoyable show even if you don't get the references and rife with visual gags. Much more comedy than "cute girls doing cute things", this is a show that more people should see and enjoy, the setting gives it a different flavor than most shows.   [embed]35028:5632:0[/embed] "Dear Brave" Anime: Heavy Object I've heard great things about this show but haven't been able to check it out. I do love the song in this ending with the sweet vocals provide a nice accompaniment to the visuals of the heroine, showing off her gentle feminine side more in a show about war.   [embed]35028:5633:0[/embed] "Nichijou no Mahou" Anime: Flying Witch This ending provides a good way to end each episode of a such laid back show. This show is a pure joy to watch and has that cute calmness to it.   Is there an anime/opening/ending from JC Staff you enjoyed? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

May 19 // Red Veron
[embed]35026:5621:0[/embed] "Hey World" Anime: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Here is a show with both a ridiculous title and has ruined google search results for certain Greek gods for a while. This is the show that popularized the "boob string" thing that has been pretty much forgotten along with the show.   [embed]35026:5622:0[/embed] "Light my fire" Anime: Shakugan no Shana III Here is a rockin' opening for popular Shana series. It's got an otherworldly supernatural magic mixed with a modern day urban setting with a short and petite swordwielding girl with red hair. It has everything I want but I still haven't gotten that far in the first season of this show. Definitely in my Top 20 list of shows I need to to watching.   [embed]35026:5623:0[/embed] "Kawaru Mirai (カワルミライ)" Anime: Heaven's Memo Pad Here is a detective show with a cute NEET (which stands for No Employment, Education, Training) detective handling crimes and murders in Tokyo. It's a mix of mystery and light action in an urban setting, which I highly recommend.   [embed]35026:5624:0[/embed] "Silky Heart" Anime: Toradora A popular show about love story featuring a short petite tsundere and a secretly nice mean looking guy. This opening has a really catchy song and is very nicely made to suit the beats of the song.   [embed]35026:5626:0[/embed] "Kibou no Uta" Anime: Food Wars: Shokugeki no Souma It's that show that has very nicely drawn food as well as some fanservice (for those who like men and women) for a great feast for the eyes. Shounen cooking shows aren't rare but we haven't gotten a new one lately and we've been due for one in a long time.   Is there an anime and/or opening from JC Staff that you love?

Week Ender - 10 YEARS AGO EDITION

May 13 // Red Veron
[embed]35015:5603:0[/embed] "Umi no Opal" Anime: Soukou no Strain Here's another show on my list that I need to watch, it involves space wars with giant robots and time dilation with faster than light travel. The ending is pretty calming with that sweet sounding song.   [embed]35015:5604:0[/embed] "Rock The LM.C" Anime: Red Garden Here's another show from a decade ago that I never got around to see. It involves four girls at a private school in New York city. Mysteries and murders happen that adds to the intrigue, I would tell you more but I don't want to spoil it for myself. This ending is a bit minimal with a concert going on with some shots of the cast.   [embed]35015:5605:0[/embed] "Yuukyou Seishunka" Anime: Code Geass Oh look a song by Ali Project, you know it's them just by their style. I like this ending with the stills featuring the characters in situations not seen in the show.   [embed]35015:5606:0[/embed] "Alumina" Anime: Death Note A very stylish opening that still holds up to now, especially the use of the color red. I love the way the ending communicates the sinister character of Light.   Is there an ending/opening/anime that you loved from 10 years ago? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

OP Up! - 10 YEARS AGO EDITION

May 11 // Red Veron
[embed]35012:5598:0[/embed] "Red Fraction" Anime: Black Lagoon I have only seen a little bit of this show and I promise I will watch more. This is a show that still holds up and is one that is still recommended by many. There isn't much going in this opening, but this is a good example of "less is more" where the opening creates intrigue and gives you that feeling that this isn't like those other anime that you watch all the time.   [embed]35012:5599:0[/embed] "COLORS" Anime: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Oh hey, it's that show that spawned those memes such as "I shall pleasure myself with this fish" or "notto this shit again". Yeah, this show is still quite popular and is still enjoyable with all the twists and turns inside. It's got drama, action, giant robots, and some enjoyable politics too.   [embed]35012:5600:0[/embed] "INNOCENT SORROW" Anime: D.Gray-Man A show based on a manga that just kinda went silent. I loved this show and even did my first cosplay based on one of the characters. I heard that the author still makes a chapter every now and then but it is a shame since the universe it created was an interesting one, mixing eastern and western influences in a early 1900s setting.   [embed]35012:5601:0[/embed] "PUZZLE" Anime: Welcome to the NHK! I haven't seen this show in ages and I believe it would be hard for me to say much about this show not because of the amount of time since I have seen but it would be because of the themes it tackled. There is some stuff in this show that I would have a different opinion on because I am older now and would probably relate to the many things that this show discussed. Oh this show is about a adult shut in who gradually comes out of his shell because of a neighbor and a cute girl. Just look it up, it's worth a watch anyways. Also read the manga, since there are things omitted for TV broadcast rules and such.   [embed]35012:5597:0[/embed] "Bouken Desho Desho?" Anime: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya It's that show about that girl who does stuff and still cosplayed by people since it is easy since the uniforms are hella cheap now. This is one show I really recommend, it's a good comedy with some mystery and stuff that hits you out of nowhere when you watch it in the broadcast order. Watch it on the broadcast order, you will enjoy it much more. I would tell you more but this isn't just one of those "cute girl does cute things" kinda shows, it has some of that but it has a overarching story that brings everything together.  Is there an anime from 2006 that you love?

[embed]34943:5562:0[/embed] "Junshin Always (純真Always)" Anime: Myriad Colors Phantom World A very pretty ending with all the soft colors and pretty patterns. We also get the cuteness of the characters from the show.   [embed]34943:5563:0[/embed] "Hey! Calorie Queen" Anime: Dagashi Kashi Saya and the other chick are really nice in this ending. It takes on an Alice in Wonderland motif with Saya being Alice and she looks absolutely cute. The other chick is dressed up as some other character I don't know. The song is absolutely cute as well.   [embed]34943:5564:0[/embed] "Be My Steady" Anime: Prince of Stride: Alternative I love this ending. The use of a few colors but using shapes and simple visual effects just totally give a striking effect. I really like that red and black with some white thrown in and the whole thing looks like a K-Pop boyband video.   [embed]34943:5565:0[/embed] "Sore wa Chiisana Hikari no Youna" Anime: ERASED An ending that starts out simple then gets some great visuals, though lacking in detail, the outlines and few details are brought out by the pretty colors. A lot of the imagery also has meaning behind it that relates to the show.   Are there endings or openings that you loved from last season? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know! Yo.

OP Up! - Last Season (Winter 2016) Edition

Apr 13 // Red Veron
[embed]34942:5552:0[/embed] "Naked Dive" Anime: Myriad Colors Phantom World I really like the pixellated square look that this opening employs as well as using it in a mosaic censorship effect that gets me excited when they use it to tease viewers with the nakedness of the characters. Also then colors, not as saturated as some of the other openings here but still great.   [embed]34942:5553:0[/embed] "one-Me two-Hearts (ワンミーツハー)" Anime: Divine Gate I don't know why but I always laugh my ass off when I see that part near the beginning of the opening when one of the main characters looking through a window with his hand pressed up against it. I know it's supposed to allude to something sad in his past but I just find it funny. Yes, I am a monster. I do love this opening's use of colors while still not as bright as other openings that tries to follow the latest trend of using a lot of hypercolors.   [embed]34942:5554:0[/embed] "Beat your heart" Anime: Bubuki Buranki This opening always has me looking forward to the part where they introduce the bad guys right after introducing the good guys. The opening introduces the good guys looking all cool and shows of a bit of their character while the bad guys are shown off to be kicking the protagonist's butts. It always makes me laugh.   [embed]34942:5551:0[/embed] "Re:Re:" Anime: ERASED An opening that instantly had me jamming after few seconds and I soon realized why: the song is from 2004 from the band Asian Kung-fu Generation and I've listened to the song for hundreds (if not thousands) of times. This opening too is simple but full of symbolism and does something super clever later. Are there openings that you loved from last season? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know! Yo.

Week Ender - Adapted Drama Edition

Mar 26 // Red Veron
[embed]34890:5506:0[/embed] "Last Piece" Anime: Great Teacher Onizuka This property has multiple live action adaptations which take a lot of liberties with source material. I haven't seen many of them but I did see the anime that waters down the content because there are certain things they can't show in an anime on television back when it aired. Maybe if we get another anime adaptation, it can be much closer to the manga.   [embed]34890:5507:0[/embed] "Sagittarius" Anime: Nodame Cantabile One thing I do love with the anime adaptation of this property is the great soundtrack that just wasn't live action drama. The anime was produced by JC Staff, the same studio that adapted Honey and Clover which also has a great soundtrack and beautiful animation.   [embed]34890:5508:0[/embed] "Split" Anime: Honey & Clover The only thing I liked about the live action adaptation of this show was really good ending song "Canvas" performed by Ken Hirai. I would've featured it but the overprotective Japanese music companies make it hard to have the actual ending up on the internet.   [embed]34890:5509:0[/embed] "Shissou" Anime: Ouran High School Host Club I love this anime but not the drama. To be fair, I never gave it a chance but the trailers not as good. The live action trailers made the show look like it didn't have much of a budget and for a story were rich people are involved, you may wanna make them look rich.   [embed]34890:5510:0[/embed] "Akai Coat" Anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge I remember watching the first few episodes of the anime and found the whole thing to be super ridiculous. Then a few years later, I hear a live action drama adaptation for television was developed and I just had the most puzzled and surprised look on my face. I also got the same look again on my face when I heard about a live action film adaptation the following year.   Is there an anime adaptation that you love over the source material or other adaptations?

OP Up! - Adapted Drama Edition

Mar 23 // Red Veron
[embed]34877:5499:0[/embed] "Kimi ni todoke" Anime: Kimi ni todoke Here's a show that I really love that is so beautifully made in both visual and sound. The voice acting really captured the heroine's character really well and the opening is just sooooo charming.   [embed]34877:5500:0[/embed] "Dramatic" Anime: Honey and Clover This show is one of my all time favorites and I still love it to this day. So when I heard it had a TV drama adaptation, I was overjoyed. Until I watched it and how it just changed a bunch of how the characters were and elements of the story that it didn't feel the same as the manga and anime. The anime has great music and visual so check it out if you loved the manga.   [embed]34877:5501:0[/embed] "Allegro Cantabile Sound" Anime: Nodame Cantabile If there was ever a perfect adaptation of a manga (and even anime), it would be the live action Nodame Cantabile drama. The drama version had the entire story from the manga, and even captured the slapstick comedy that was present in anime. It had the music too, and while the anime had it too, you got to see musicians "performing" the pieces themselves instead of a static picture. Both the anime and drama are indeed worth watching.   [embed]34877:5502:0[/embed] "Honto no Kotoba (My Real Word)" Anime: Gokusen This manga not only got one season for the drama, but got two more and a TV special. I loved the first season but then the second season just felt like a rehash with an entirely pretty boy cast instead of the colorful variety that was in the original show. I never really watched the anime but I think it had a dog in it that wasn't in the drama.   [embed]34877:5503:0[/embed] "Ai no prison" Anime: Prison School This is one property I never though would ever get a live action adaptation, let alone an anime. But lo and behold, it got both. The anime looked great from the little I saw and I only saw a little bit of the live action show too and it looked okay. I can't wait to see both when I have time.   Is there an anime adaptation that you love over the source material or other adaptations? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!
