Ta dah…this is actually a small music post disguised as a random update 😆 (j/jkg)
Ya, Ayu is still very much alive although she’s been rather quiet. Quiet on the blogging scene but definitely not in the real world where things are mad cap busy. Been under the weather as well and is currently on medication to stave off the onset of a cold (flu). Hopefully, it won’t descend into a full blown mess. DO NOT WANT!
On the snippets front, there is an apparent delay in receiving my monthly mag subscriptions this time, affecting updates on AVARUS, GFantasy and the most anticipated new manga mag ‘ComicGene’. I’ve been itching to see what’s in store in ‘ComicGene’ and this waiting is making me a little ‘irate’ at the delay. Hoping to get some feedback from the distributor/shipper on the said matter. Yes, I’m that enthusiastic. 😛
Until then, I’m doing a little side post on music, a selection of ani-music to be precise. Additionally, I’m also catching up on the scans for various projects which I’ve been putting off because of my busy schedule. This on and off thing is really annoying to some but certain matters can’t be help. I’m still on board for now and will see my contributions through till I say it’s the end.
In the mean time, I want to share some music clips I’d discovered during a very enjoyable sojourn away from tBPII. I must say that I had an interesting musical journey through the 90’s and the result of it is here. Thank you to Kitsune for inviting me to partake in this little joint-venture. xD It was rather fun scouring through the musical archive and finding out there are many pieces that I’ve not heard of or come across before. So many things, too little time. 😆
On to Ayu’s ani-music discovery.
Sky Crawlers (2008)
Main Ending Theme by Kenji Kawai
What a mournful tragic theme. It made me feel sad and I haven’t even seen the film yet.
Romeo and Juliet (2007)
“Deai” by Hitoshi Sakimoto
Here’s an anime that I avoid watching for some reason when it aired on Animax. But that’s not to say I don’t appreciate the music. This particular piano piece called ‘Deai’ (Encounter) is one that I really like.
ED2 “Paradiso” by Hitomi
Haven’t heard this airy but pretty song in a while now. So glad I stumbled upon it.
Saiyuki: Requiem (2001)
“Shoushin no michi gan” by Akira Senju
I’m totally loving this beautiful moving piece composed by Akira Senju. Been listening to it a several times now. Seen the TV anime but not the movie. Have yet to check out the new OVA. *Make mental note to watch it soon. 🙂
These are just the first 4 finds among several that I really enjoy listening to. I might turn this into a regular thing on tBPII. Who knows, eh?! 😀
