Oh yeah, I bet Konomi's great live. Her voice is impressive. What's questionable is what she's been given to sing...

Btw, is over 13k better, worse, or about what you'd expect for yanaginagi's Polyomino?

Hahalollawl | 12-13-14, 7:18 PM
HEY did you know nagi did a song for Grisaia? I haven't been keeping up with the episodes...maybe I should. Kind of a weird show though, from what I've seen. Not exactly my favorite male MC...

I like both Choir Jail and Days of Dash, but I think I might actually like Choir Jail more as well, but for a different reason. I like the Tasogare OP (animation and music) a LOT. Probably one of my favorite Openings to an anime. Basically Yuuko is awesome in the OP, and Yuuko dancing with that fan is something I remember particularly. It gave off this atmosphere of creepiness that fit well. I think the word for it is "空気". Combined with Choir Jail...yeah such an awesome OP, 素敵!

Hahalollawl | 12-13-14, 4:25 PM
I haven't heard the full song, so maybe it's better, but from that vid, yeah...not my favorite song of hers. The Madan OP was better in my opinion. And the No Game No Life OP was probably even better than the Madan OP. But none of those are on the level of Choir Jail or Days of Dash. Those are the Konomin classics. At least to me.

Yeah, considering her age too (17? 18?) she probably gets told what to do and she just does it. When you're a teenage singer, pretty much everyone in the business is probably a "sempai" right?

Maybe when she gets a little older, she'll have more control. Hopefully we get the next Choir Jail or Days of Dash soon though...

Hahalollawl | 12-13-14, 3:29 PM
BTW, here's a link to Konomin's song if you haven't heard it already (it's only part in the promo though)

Honestly, I don't like it all that much. So much going on behind her voice that it starts to sound like just noise, you know what I mean?

It's possible to make a strong background work with Konomin's voice (especially since her voice is so strong!), but for some reason, that Absolute Duo song doesn't seem like it works so well for me. A better example of strong vocals with strong background would be Avenge World. She is still so young though, so I think there is hope that she figures it out. Maybe she'll be able to have more control over what she does in the future (if she doesn't already).

Hahalollawl | 12-12-14, 11:00 AM
Didn't you describe nagi as "quirky"? Seems appropriate.

Could they skip/ignore stuff in the yamada-kun OVA maybe (like kimimachi?)? Not sure what the ova covers (is it out?).

Have you heard konomin's absolute duo song?

Hahalollawl | 12-11-14, 3:08 PM
Oh neat thanks! I don't know much Japanese but I can read Katakana so I can actually read Gamers and Animate!

Of course, there are other factors that are important too. But I was wondering if I could see other rankings and you linked what I was looking for!

If you had to guess, do you think they'll make Yamada-kun a 1 cour or 2 cour?

Hahalollawl | 12-11-14, 11:06 AM

I have a question. Is there a site that I could see estimates for anime disc sales outside of Amazon?

Hahalollawl | 12-09-14, 6:13 PM
Oh it turning into a messy reverse harem? WHY COULDN'T THEY HAVE JUST KEPT THE ROMANCE/STORY TO HAK AND YONA??!!!

Sigh...maybe my hopes are too high.

Hahalollawl | 12-09-14, 1:54 PM
So selling the charasongs before the anime airs is becoming common, but it didn't used to be?

So both Yona and Kiseijuu aren't listed yet right? Think they'll both be boxes?

Hahalollawl | 12-09-14, 5:10 AM
Hikaru nara almost 24k sales, think it'll hit 25?

Also, did you notice that Saenai Heroine already has character songs for sale? Why would they sell those before the anime even started airing? Or is that typical?

Btw, is releasing older shows in box sets basically easy money for production committees? Is that why they do that? Or is there anything more that can/should be inferred from an older series getting a box set release?

Did you see that Iori Nomizu is supposedly gonna perform the OP for Kūsen Madōshi Kōhosei no Kyōkan? When is that show supposed to air anyways, has it been announced?

Hahalollawl | 12-08-14, 1:56 PM
I don't think I've seen much asian soap opera, if any, though maybe I should check some out if they're like Yona.

MAL doesn't seem to have it listed, but Yona is supposed to be 24 episodes right? So there might be enough time to develop a pretty thorough story. Nice!

Also, I guess I could nitpick on it, one thing about Yona that has annoyed me is the humor has seemed a bit misplaced at times, like it doesn't fit the tone very well. That seems to have happened when it switches to "chibi" mode or whatever.

Also, perhaps it isn't surprising considering Chiwa Saito voice them both, but Yona has sounded a bit like Frederica in Chaika, which is kind of weird because of how different the two characters seem.

Hahalollawl | 12-07-14, 10:55 AM
A bit contrived perhaps early on, but the execution of the story has been quite good. And who knows, maybe it's lulling you into thinking it's predictable! I haven't read the manga, so I don't know...

Maybe she ends up going back to her cousin and they live happily ever after or something. Like, it was all just a 誤解 and the guy who killed the king was impersonating him!! Meanwhile, Hak could become the tragic hero with a bounty on his head and live the rest of his life in exile...but finds love in a small village where he settles down. =D

Probably not going to happen, but hey, one can dream right?

Hahalollawl | 12-06-14, 7:30 AM
AHH! I started watching Akatsuki no Yona...Wow. I wouldn't have thought I'd like what appears to be a reverse harem, but the romance is SO GOOD! At least in my opinion. That scene when Hak is trying to leave the wind village on his own and Yona tries to block his of the better romance scenes I've seen. Fantastic.

Also, the art/sakuga seems well done too (at least most of it)! Some pretty nice fight scenes (though perhaps a tad unrealistic). Reminds me a bit of Chinese martial arts movies, like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon or Hero. Have you seen those?

Anyways, wow. Akatsuki no Yona might be a serious contender for my favorite anime of the season, that's how much I've liked what I've seen so far.

Hahalollawl | 12-05-14, 7:27 PM
Hey what do you think of the character designs in Kiseijuu, particularly Murano? Is it just me, or does she seem to have a particularly prominent forehead? I prefer Miyuki's character's design...and Miyuki's voice, but that's another matter...

Be interesting to see how Kiseijuu does in sales if it ever gets solicited. Or how the live action movie does (it came out already right?).

Hahalollawl | 12-03-14, 3:02 PM
Ohh right, she did music for Valvrave too. I think I prefer Realism over Sobani Iruyo personally. There's a gorgeous part about a minute into that song where the background music seems to fade away and her voice stands out. Not sure if you know what I'm referring to, but anyways, I like that part.

Btw is Shigatsu a Light Novel too? I think I saw it rank somewhere.
