Brickmuppet shared this a few weeks ago. Not remarkable unless you like the song, but the timing and arrangement is good. Reminds me that I ought to try finishing Asobi ni Iku Yo someday. I just don't like harem anime, no matter how it's presented.
I've seen bits of this one before, but not all of it. Or rather, I think I've seen this same concept before. This particular video was done in the last few years.
And now for something completely different:
Incidentally, I have suspected for a while and just now confirmed that the twitter feed to the right is still not working.
Nothing special for Christmas, other than the two videos I've already posted. Maybe I'll think of something later today. So, Merry Christmas, everyone!
Bored With Me. "Finding Something To Do" by Hellogoodbye; anime is Chuunibyou
Synthetic Heroine. "Turn Me On" by David Guetta with Nicki Minaj; anime are Ghost In The Shell (mostly or all from Stand Alone Complex) and Chobits, Metropolis, with Angelic Layer, Divergence Eve, Casshern Sins, Je Taime, King of Thorn and Mardock Scramble.
Thorns and Roses. "Not Giving Up on Love" by Armin Van Buuren with Sophie Ellis Bextor. Anime is Revolutionary Girl Utena. I've tried to watch this show repeatedly and just can't get into it, although I should like it, at least on paper.
Boxxed. "Oh No!" by Marina and the Diamonds, anime is Maria-holic. This one is so good that I got the series and will watch it soon. Great song, too.
Ride or Die. "We Own It" by 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa, anime is Redline. By all accounts, this movie is horrible and breathtaking. My oldest daughter was completely captivated with the visual and wants to see the movie. This video is in 1080p; might be better to just stick with it.
That's it for now. Unless you want some more Equilibrium or Alestorm.
Completely forgot about Macross's 30th Anniversary a few months ago. I posted a link in Twitter to the Macross Museum which opened in Japan; pretty sure they're not going to bring it to America. So, here's the final battle from Macross: Do You Remember Love? Strictly speaking, the movie came out several years after the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross anime, but as the movie is presented as an "in-universe" retelling of the events of the series, I think it's acceptable. The movie took all of the major elements of the series and turned them up to 11, so a lot of DYRL comes off as a bit corny. However, it included the incredibly iconic song Love, Do You Remember and arguably the best hand-drawn animation ever photographed. Nothing in the movie is computer generated in any way; DYRL is plain, old-fashioned cell photography. And an incredible achievement.
Oh, and incidentally, I forgot to mention that Mari Iijima was propelled to instant stardom by playing the first "anime idol".
Ok, let's try something. Hopefully, none of my viewers have seen this yet. The title of the video is erroneous*. As soon as the video starts, mute the sound. As soon as you're reasonably sure what this movie is a Hollywood adaptation of, write it down**.
