A Daily Dose of Music: Perfume

Ayano, Yuka and Ayaka are back to get you off your feet Perfume's latest video for Pick Me Up. It's a poppy EDM number, that doesn't go to far in either extreme. The song remains dancey while retaining pop charms, which I do...

Week Ender - PA Works Edition
by Red Veron

PA Works is a studio that has had great success as of late with their original anime Shirobako. That wasn't the case with their previous works since their last hit, Hanasaku Iroha but they've been hitting it out of the park with their latest anime about an anime studio who has been trying to make their comeback. Who knew that them making an anime about making anime and themselves would be so successful?

Well, this weekend's Week Ender is about PA Works and they've got some good endings in there. Well, I have a couple that I really like so I'll just throw those in with some others. Enjoy!

Week Ender - SEED Edition

I have spoken to many anime fans and it seems that Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny elicits a very mixed reaction. There are those who absolutely love it and those who think it's the worse thing ever. I sit in the middle of those two viewpoints, while I love the mecha and the more updated reimagining of the original Gundam elements in SEED, I do dislike certain elements in the show.

I think the best part of the show is the soundtrack and many people seem to agree, there are plenty of really great openings and endings in the Gundam SEED series. Now I present some of those endings for this weekend's edition of Week Ender.

OP Up! Green Edition
by Red Veron

Yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day, a day that people in the US use as an excuse to pinch others not wearing green, wear green, and get drunk in the middle of the day. I am writing in this in the past so why not use this as a theme? Not the drinking part, I'm referring to the "green" part.

So this week's contrived theme is about "green", well it's mostly anime with green haired characters. Oh and a song by the band Greeeen sung with awkwardly translated english lyrics by Hugh Jackman, though I don't think the lyrics are his fault. Enjoy!
