A Quick Update (Aria OST AQUA transcription)

Sorry folks, for not updating the last weekend. I was having a cold and have to stay in bed.

But now I recovered and I will update every weekend again.

Ah, ARIA…. you never ceases to amaze me

Well, since I was sick I haven’t completed anything, so I’ll just upload a sheet, which have been finished a long time ago but  haven’t been published yet. I have a “draft folder” which mostly consists of incomplete transcriptions but some of them are almost up to 90 percent finished,  I only  have to put the finishing touches on the sheets.

A word or two about the sheet: It’s the transcription of AQUA, a soundtrack of ARIA. On Josh’s sheet library you can find a lot of ARIA music sheets but I wonder why nobody ever transcribed this particular piece. I think  it was one of the most memorable pieces in ARIA. Oh yes, and I just began rewatching ARIA again and it’s still as good as  it ever was.

On a side note:

I can’t really decide which OP or ED of this anime season I should transcribe: I’m currently working on Star Driver OP, but I’m not sure what I should doing next. Feel free to propose something.

(Series who are not listed here are out of the question)

I nostalgia’d (Digimon ED “Butterfly”)

remember when Digimon used to be awesome?

Guess what I just found in my “Transcription Drafts” folder: A completed Digimon anime music sheet!

I’ve written this a long time ago and have completely forgotten this one. I think it was originally transcribed for my little sister. (She also plays the piano, but not as good as me :P) Back then she was a huge Digimon fan and she really wanted to play this piano version of “Butterfly”.

I remember when the first season of the Digimon aired on the german TV,. Back then, I was so excited and thrilled with this great series so that I haven’t been able to keep one’s mind off Digimon. Ah, those were the days…. (and I still have some Digimon soundtracks on my mp3 collection)

Well, since it’s written for my little sister, you can guess it is designed rather easy, so the most of you can play it with ease.

This has to be the best Anime season I’ve ever seen

 

My face of this anime season

 

Anime… I am not disappoint.

In fact, I still can’t believe every series I have started  turns out to be interesting and enjoyable.  I think, I have never been following so many shows simultaneously in one season.

 

Keima is truly the god of Harem

 

One of the shows I was anticipating the most was The world god only knows. I followed the manga half a year ago on Mangafox, but somehow I lost interest and didn’t catch it up again. When I heard a anime adaption is going to air on spring season, I immediately became interested again and I was really curious how the adaption turns out to be. The results achieved are excellent. Really smooth animation, a cool OP, and the seyuus fits their roll very well.

 

Glactic pretty boy... dazzling the stage!

 

Stardriver is just faaaaabulous. I mean, just look at this guy. The mechas looks dumb, I admit, but the whole transformation scene, the amazing soundtrack, (just listen to this) the exciting fight scenes, are really too awesome. It has also the best OP this season IMHO.

Panty & stocking is surely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I do like it. Panty and Stocking are two kick-ass characters and it’s a ton of fun watching them. Especially THIS scene has blown my mind (FLY AWAY NOW, FLY AWAY NOW). It has also one of the most catchy ED this season.

Index II was of course on my watch list, since I watched the first season. I hoped it would be better, because I have a lot of issues with the first season but –*sighs* Touma is still a moralfag, Index is still annoying and the pacing is still bad. To be honest, I don’t really know, why I ‘m still watching this. Maybe I’m waiting for Accelerator to appear again, because he was the only character in Index who was really awesome…

Ore no imouto is probably the most surprising hit for me in this Anime season. I expected some incest crap like Yosuga no Sora but it proves to be my favorite Anime for this season. This show SO reminds me of my daily encounter with my little sister. (You don’t know how exhausing it could be dealing with a little sister. She is 14 and also likes Manga). Nevertheless, I didn’t expect the first two episodes turns out to be that amusing. Definitely on my watch list.

 

rawr~

 

I originally didn’t intend to watch Otome Youkai Zakuro since I generally dislike Shoujo but I gave it a try and … it was surprisingly good! This series has a really enjoyable cast and a interesting setting. I especially like that Youkai girl Zakuro (she reminds me of Reimu from Touhou)

Shinryaku! Ika musume is an  excellent comedy show with a funny  cast. I had quite some good laughs in the first episode. I hope it will keep up his humour and don’t become shallow, de geso~

I own the Bakuman mangas and I was surprised, it become adapted that early. (there are only 6 volumes available here  in germany). Well, the animation is really mediocre, but aside from that, it’s exactly the same as the manga. I like the Bakuman manga a lot so I naturally follow the anime.

And at last, Kuragehime: initially not on my watch list, but since I’ve heard good things about it, I gave it a try and it turns out being more entertaining than expected. This show remind me a bit of NANA, I don’t know why. I will follow this for sure.

TL; DR: Don’t mind me, just proclaiming the best Anime season ever.

Also, have a glorious Norio Wakamoto image:

 

HELLO EVERYNYAN!!!

 

It’s been a while… (Shakugan no shana OVA ED transcription)

… but now I’ve finally found the time to post something.

Some of you may ask why I didn’t post anything  for such a long time.

Anime became boring and is no fun anymore…

It’s because I’ve completely lost interest in Anime in the past five months.

I don’t know why but suddenly, everytime when I start watching Anime, I became bored and I have a feeling of wasting my time and not achieving anything. I’d rather play some computer games like Starcraft 2  or go out with my friends instead of spending time watching anime.

That’s because the spring Anime season was really weak. I’ve dropped everything I had began watching:

Highschool of the Dead had just too much fanservice. Yes yes, I know, Highschool of the dead IS entirely made of fanservice, but still, I was hoping it wouldn’t focus too much on the fanservice. But it just got worse and…I just can’t stand fanservice series.

I’ve tried Occuld Academy but I didn’t find it really interesting and dropped it already after 2 episodes.

Ookami san and her seven compagnions was… mediocre at its best. It wasn’t anything special. It’s just another  standard tsundere romance comedy show with a little drama. Completely forgettable.

Mitsudomoe was in the beginning funny but it became repetitive and boring.

I gave up on K-ON!! because it just don’t work for me. I really don’t feel the need watching it. Dropped.

In conclusion, there was nothing to watch. And after a month, when I still don’t miss anime at all, I thought I should just quit Anime.

And that’s how today, when I’ve been organizing my computer files, I’ve seen this:

[SS-Eclipse] Shakugan no Shana S – 01 (1280×720 h264) [DABC2A44].​mkv

oh boy… how I’ve missed this series

I’ve completely forgot, there was still a Shanakugan no Shana OVA!

Suddenly I felt how I missed this series and I decided to give it a try, since I have nothing to do today.

After finishing the first episode I just had one thought: It was good. It was very good, no, it was awesome!

I felt satisfaction and got excited. And I wanted more. I’ve downloaded all 4 episodes of the OVA and indeed, it was the best thing I’ve watched for a long time.

Anime is suddenly fun! And since the fall season have already started, there will be likely some series which could be interesting for me! Now I’m downloading all the new shows of this season and I can’t wait to watch it.

Which also means, you can expect me uploading more transcriptions as from today.

Anyway, when I finished the Shana OVA, I immediately went to the piano and transcribed the ED only within two hours.

Well, that’s it,  enjoy the sheet .
