DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

The official English of STORY is almost on par with the Ono Kensho version. Actually convinced me to give the show another shot (I got one whole more episode in before quitting again).

 

 

Related, they aren't English, but I do know that Harada Hitomi and Suzuki Konomi both did covers of other anime OPs/ED for their Madan no Ou to Vadanis OP/ED singles. Hitomi did First Kiss from Zero no Tsukaima and Suzuki Konomi did a cover of nano's Born to be from Mahou Sensou with nothing but a piano backing her.

 

Other awesome anime covers include:

  • Faylan's anime cover album, which includes a bossa nova version of FLOW's DAYS from Eureka Seven
  • FLOW and Diana Garnet coming together to cover Blue Bird by Ikimonogakari from Naruto on FLOW's BEST ANIME Kiwami album.
  • ClariS' cover album, which included sakura by NIRGILIS, also from Eureka Seven
  • ELISA's cover album ANICHRO, which included a cover of Himitsu Kichi by Takada Kozue, also from Eureka Seven

I think I said earlier if they ever want to do a recut of Eureka Seven where it was down to two cours they'd only need one more cover to make it happen.

 

Utaite tend to do really good covers as well, but I'd really rather see more established artists coming out and doing covers. This hasn't been a big year for them in anison (it's always a big year for covers in general Japanese music), but here's hoping~

 

Oh my gosh how could I do such a big post without mentioning the two most covered songs in all of anison; secret base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (which can be heard in Kyou no Go Ni and anohana) and disillusion/THIS ILLUSION (all of the Fate/).

 

(Also the other covers thread is in Mayhem so maybe this should be moved there?)

I cut up a clip of Minase and Ogura (the two ViVid Strike leads) performing the Nanoha As opening.

Even as far as live performances go, I can't say the two of them are even as good as Mizuki on her own.



But I guess that's to be expected.

I think if Minase tried to be a good singer she could be at least 75% as good as Nana.

 

Ogura is really not helping.

 

I'm starting to think Nana as a whole is just from another time, but Uchida Yuuma is trying his dardnest to be Miyano Mamoru so maybe we just need to wait for somebody who sets their sights on being "Next Nana".

This cover of Oath Sign has been a favorite for some time

 

 

And I've been enjoying Amalee's catalog of covers quite a bit. Her new version of Kiss of Death was great.

That was pretty nice to listen to, say what you will about the series but the openning theme was rather enchanting to say the least!

NatewantstoBattle's Clattanoia from Overlord season 1

 

I think Overlord season 1 openning is the best, the others are ok but the first one just kind of nailed what the show was about!

 

I'm generally not a major fan of English dubs of Japanese opennings, the ones I tend to hear, feel like they are butchering the song, but not to say I haven't found one that I think equals its original:

I'd love to talk about these in more detail but I don't know if anybody else wants to and I'm mainly interested in covers by Japanese voice actors that I'm already following.



Aoi is my favorite magical girl voice actor and Platina is my favorite magical girl song and it's not a bad match for her voice. It's the kind of thing I never knew how much I wanted.



Minase's cover of the Sailor Moon theme is like, I can't say she's doing anything wrong, I guess. Funny that her voice is a bit deeper than usual for this. Though as far as magical girl things go I'm not sure how she'll ever top Senkin Dur da Bla.

It's hard to remember that the original version of GravityWall isn't all in English.

 

I wish there were more covers by seiyuu I follow already, but male seiyuu don't tend to do covers of each other. I mean, I can't even find covers of Orpheus which feels like it should be a super covered song.

 

I think LiSA has also done a cover of the Sailor Moon OP? Here's a terrible recording of a sample featuring Takamiy from THE ALFEE for some reason. I like this one way better than the original, probably because I have no childhood memories to ruin. Apparently Ziyoou-vachi (aka Queen Bee, performers of the first Tokyo Ghoul:re ED) also did a cover for the album LiSA's version was on.

 

Aoi Eir did a cover of Yumesekai for her single Niji no Oto and I'm pretty sure it's like 5000% better than the original Tomatsu Haruka version.

Don't know if LiSA has but Momoiro Clover Z has a full album of songs from the original show they put out before or around the same time Crystal started.

 

 

Not so much a cover as a remix here. Two-Mix's remixed dance version of Rhythm Emotion. I actually remember a club near Fort Campbell playing this a couple times the few times I hit one.

At some point, Virtual YouTubers became a treasure trove for this. Or maybe it's a garbage dump.

YuNi has done covers for the third Cardcaptor Sakura OP, the first Saint Seiya OP, the Evangelion OP, the first Sword Art Online OP.

There's Evangelion songs by members of the idol group 22/7.

Cocoa Music's done covers of another SAO song, the first Mahouka OP, and the BTOOOM OP, for some reason.

And more than I want to keep track of. Like covers by Mari and Aoi.

I think the VTuber crowd tends to be more into Vocaloid songs though. I kept running across more and more covers of Roki, for example. And there's probably more covers of Sand Planet/Dune out there than anybody needs.

I'd say it's the latter.

 

 

This cover of Glory Days almost gave me the motivation to finish Hi-Evolution 1.
