A bit delayed update (Accel world ED – “unfinished”)

I was a very busy last week, and because of that I couldn’t finish any sheets. (three in progress)

But at last, I have completed one sheet today: The Accel World ending unfinished.

I extended the beginning of the original TV opening a little bit because I want to emphasize the first theme a little more. My intention was to imitate the sound of strings with the left hand in the beginning of the transciption. Only the beginning of the sheet is “original part”, the rest is almost a 1:1 transcription of the TV size ending. Did I mention that I love KOTOKO?

This transcription is significantly more difficult than the previous two sheets I made for the spring season, because of the really fast notes in the latter half of the sheet. Maybe I’ll make a simplified version later…

Well, that’s it for today.

[→unfinished→] (yes, it’s called like that)        (difficulty: challenging)

Back from the dead (for the fifth time) (Shakugan no Shana 3 OP – Light my fire)

Well hello again.

It seems that I’ve reached my “transcription cycle”:

At the start of every new anime season, I’ll transcribe 3-4 pieces until I got bored or if there aren’t any interesting pieces left to transcribe. Then I’ll “hibernate” until the next anime season arrives with fresh OP and ED’s. And then I’ll begin transcribing again.

And so, once again, a new season begins, the fall anime season 2011 brings tons of new shows which I’ll look forward to, but most importantly, the anime, I’m anticipating the most is finally airing:

HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT SHANA IS BACK!!! asdf%$&@HELL_YESSSSq3w5er1t2t

I can’t f*cking believe it, Shana is finally back, the long awaited third season finally airs!

I jumped out of my seat when I heard, that the third season is airing this fall 2011.

You know, shana was one of my “first real anime” I’ve watched. Therefore it remains as something special in my hearts. If Shana had aired 2011 and not nearly six years ago I would classify it as “generic fantasy anime no. 154723”. But Shakugan no Shana is different.

I’m not really sure either why I am liking this series so much,

-Nostalgia?

Shana, because she is so hot?

I know a guy who watched over 200 Anime series and recently began watching the first season of shana the first season and his reaction was like

“OMG why do you favor this boring anime so much? It’s just another generic slice of life anime with a fantasy setting, and with a annoying tsundere and a useless male lead as the main characters, and the animation sucks and blah blah blah…”

And then I was like

“SHUT UP, shana is special and I know that I am not the only one who thinks like that!”

– …right, guys?

Okay, now back to the actual transcription:

Sorry for the occasional defocus in the video, blame the new camera.

Also, because of the malfunction of the tripod, I accidently revealed my face a little.

Oh well, it can’t be helped since I’m too lazy to record it again.

Anyway, why is this transcription so special?

I’ve always wanted to do a Shakugan no Shana transcription since I like ALL of their ED and OP. Seriously, they’ve been in my anime playlist for years and I still listen to them regulary.

Now, I have the oppurtunity to transcribe a Shana OP for the first time and so, I wanted to make it special.

I’ve added, once again, a special part, right after the main transcription of the piece, the nostalgia part, since it contains the theme of the first OP of shana.

Well, I don’t want to spend too much time talking about it, instead, just listen to it yourself.

OH GOD SHANA IS SO HAWT~ HNNNNGH~

Transcription: Sociometry (shakugan no shana II ED 2)

Oh yeah.

Forgot about that.

Anyway, Sociometry is one of my favorite ED’s, I wonder why nobody transcribed this epic piece of music.

the melody is very catchy, plain, but memorable. Truly one of KOTOKOS best songs.

So this would be my last “difficult level” transcription.

Starting today, I’ll only make easy transcriptions.

But seriously, althought it seems very hard, it is not impossible to play it. I tried it too and it sounds incredible cool on the piano. So it’s worth to practice this!
