Lately I haven’t been blogging or reviewing about anime for the past few weeks; Due to large amount of work and afraid I can’t make it to the future Podcasts. The past few weeks I haven’t written a post and haven’t bothered with reviews. The reason why is because, I feel like my thoughts aren’t getting through enough and isn’t expanding to other Anime viewers. I looked through inspirations of others Anime reviewers that got me into reviewing and exploring the Anime media. I had a clever idea that probably my worst or best attempt ever to get my opinion out there. So here it is… Continue reading

So everyone always have their favorite voice cast and composing soundtracks for a show they like, and it seems to me using Seiyuus (Voice actors/actresses) and pop stars to make music for Anime seems quite to be popular among Otakus. The songs they provide are great and provide satisfaction for the fans to love, but does it ring a bell where the lyrics come from? People commonly mistake the anime versions as original music instead of knowing where song originally come from. Though it does make me feel frustrated that the Anime soundtrack and whatever group they use get more credit of song than the original classic from once they came from, also not given credit. Well then, I shall show some good tunes from Animes, that you didn’t know were covers.
P.S: This post is not meant to degrade an Anime series or a Studios. Continue reading
So it has been a week since our last “Who’s your Favorite Seiyuu of the Week!” post, and i’m proud to bring you another great Seiyuu indeed. Our special Seiyuu is a deep in the rocks, underneath the rubble and seeks out trouble, can you guess who this person is? No, Yes, Probably not since not many people have heard of him since, but that’s okay. Once you’ll hear his name, you will remember it forever. Do you know who this person is?
I’ve always been intrigued at the Anime’s industry work with coming out with new works with storyboards, concepts and characters. The directors, producers and writers come up with the concept and story but what brings the characters and action to life? That’s where the key roles of Seiyuus come in! What is a Seiyuu you say? A Seiyuu is Japanese term for Voice actors and actresses that provide playing roles of certain characters for each Animes. I’ve felt like the Anime industry grown so big the past decades that it’s grand work of art in same top of line as Hollywood movies are today. Seiyuus today have great respect as much as celebrities in Hollywood I would say from Anime fans around the world, they often treated as idols, artists, and role models.
So let’s start off on a Seiyuu for this week! Can you guess who this is?!
