Enjoying Anime and playing piano again

Some of you may wonder why I didn’t update for two months.

Well, the reason behind my absence could be lazyness, lack of time, etc… but to be honest, I was “distracted” by this:

Yes I finally found it: my all time favorite Anime (besides Suzumiya Haruhi): Aria

Seriously this is probably the most peaceful, beautiful and charming series I’ve seen for a long time.

Whenever I have been stressed or annoyed, after watching this my mood was instantly getting better and I felt comfortable.

This series is extremely addictive (once you get in), so I’ve marathoned the triology (which means about 50 episodes).

The characters are just great: They are “genuine” and nothing felt forced: no forced comedy, no forced drama or forced unusual character traits. It was the very definition of a perfect slice of life Anime, or to put it simply: a feel-good anime.

Heck, I’ve made even a tribute video to worship the greatness of Aria. (Thank you very much for the transcription Josh, I couldn’t do it any better.)

Well that’s it. After the last episode I was sad at heart  and i will miss this wonderful Anime and I know that there will never be such a charming, lovely and idyllic anime again, ever.

So thank you, Aria, thank you for restoring my faith in good Anime. And thank you Josh for this wonderful transcription.

TL;DR watching Aria is good for your health and you should watch it too.


Thank you Aria, you have taught me that not everything on the world sucks

Oh right, one more thing: Sorry that I let your requests slide, but I’ll finish this off eventually.

I’ve only finished one request and it’s Kotori no etude (Toradora OST):

So here you go Angrist (I hope you didn’t forget about it ^^),  sorry for taking it so long.

Piano sheet: [Kotori no etude.pdf] (level 2)

the midi file: [Kotori no etude.midi]

Special Transcription: Yuugure no yakusoku (Toradora OST)

I just finished it for the completeness sake. (nobody ever transcribed this, I wonder why, because it’s not that hard to transcribe it)

A really nice small piece of music and it’s easy to play.

If you don’t know this piece just listen to youtube.

(mediafire is temporary unavailable so this time I used an other upload site)

Okay, so with this I wish you all a merry merry Christmas ^^

Transcription: Vanilla Salt (Toradora ED 1)

Aaaahh~ of course! ^^

I loove this ED, it’s a very happy and cheerful ED with a catchy refrain.

One of my favorite endings ^^ (the anime was awesome too * sighs* good ol’ times…)

This time it took me longer than usual to transcribe it, I don’t know why.

So yeah, try it out! (btw, it’s a little harder than my usual)
