Harro everyone!  I have officially moved in with my most loyal reader, Staapy, and formed a MERGED blog with her.  Please redirect yourselves over to our new blog: KORAA!!!

There you will find all of my old posts, all of Stappy’s old posts, and any new stuff we may come up with.  For anyone new to THIS site, you will find anime reviews, seiyuu-related entries, and crazy, perverted fantasies there.  MM MMM GOOD.

God never plays favourites…or does He? – seiyuu edition

At some point in everyone’s life, I’m sure they’ve said this to themselves, “Damn, God must really like this person, she/he is so much more talented than me.”  Well, ladies (and gents who happen to stumble across this page), let me provide you with some insight – using my dear seiyuu as examples.

Let me explain how this works: when you are a seiyuu, voice and face is pretty much all that is important (skill is something that everyone can eventually obtain to an acceptable degree after training, so I won’t factor this into my evaluation).  So… with that said, let’s take a look:

Mizuki Nana’s Trickter

OMG I’m so lame… right after I post about Discotheque, I suddenly remembered that I forgot to watch Trickster.  So I went and watched it… and I fell in love all over again XD.

Ok… I think I must say I ultimately fall for more rockish songs… take KitaEri’s Realize for example… I adored that song.  Trickter was great… great instrumentals, great voice, great singing, great melody, great everything.  The PV was ok too, though it seemed pretty much like all other normal music videos (the ones where you see the artist walking around and singing and kinda has no storyline).

What I really really really liked about this song was that last a capella bit.  Honestly, it takes guts to sing ANYTHING a capella, and Nana nailed this one (though I must say I’m still not the biggest fan of her voice).  I would just like to totally congratulate her on a job well done, erm… or maybe I mean a song well sang XD.

Mizuki Nana’s DISOTHEQUE

Ok… once again, I’m late in terms of reporting news… but this blog isn’t really NEWS anyway, it’s more of a REVIEW.

So I finally got a chance to watch the Discotheque PV after being informed of its existence by my dear friend Stappy. I can only say one thing: I’m SO in love.

I’ll admit FIRSTHAND that I didn’t hate Cosmic Love as much as some people did. So when I heard Discotheque for the first time properly, and saw the PV, I was in RABU.

Nana’s higher-pitched singing voice was actually pretty cute, and wasn’t as annoying as I remembered it to be. The song itself is really catchy, and the PV a lot better than many of the other seiyuu PVs I’ve seen so far.

Let me point out that Nana’s PV actually consisted of 6 people other than herself. Compare that to any of say… Minorin’s PVs. See the difference in production costs? XD I really loved Nana’s whole disco outift, she looked tremendously cute in them. I was just talking to Stappy yesterday about how some seiyuu are less appealing as they age, but DAMN, Nana keeps looking better and better. I personally found her MUCH more attractive than usual in this PV with her high energy, radiant smile, and just overall cuteness.

Enough said… linked from youtube: Discotheque

Someday’s Dreamers, aka Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto

Ever since the summer season’s Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora, I’ve been meaning to watch the first season.  I mean, to me, it doesn’t make sense to watch the second seaon without watching the first.  Of course, with that said, it means that I haven’t seen Natsu no Sora yet, but I was more than satisfied with the first one.

Quick Summary, then we get onto the good stuff.

Burn-up Scramble really… burned me out =_=

This is an series that aired in my pre-seiyuu-loving days.  After I started falling in love with my dearest Noto Mamiko, I started digging up series that she voiced a lead in.  After a while, I came across Burn-up Scramble.  Of course, it was from a while back and thus did not appeal to me.  However, after watching Marimite, I wanted to see more Mamiko x Megumi action, and thus my desire to watch Burn-Up Scramble was ignited.

Whatever expectations I had for this series… were sorely left unmet.

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged.  To be honest, I actually have an entry ready to be posted, but I’m awaiting the arrival of a few more pictures before I stick it up.  So that will have to wait.

Now that work is finally over, I finally have some time to watch anime.  This is when I stumbled across this short, sweet OVA series.
