MGS: Peace Walker featuring Nana Mizuki As Paz



Wow, I really didn't know Nana Mizuki was lending her voice to Paz until my friend Joseph posted this on Facebook. Remarkable. Yet another spectacular performance by Nana Mizuki, amazing vocal pipes. Will be looking forward to the CD release on 7th of April.

Planzet 2012



Do hope that this title becomes a success hit, as good as predecessor titles such as Wonderful days and Vexille and not a box office bomb like The Spirits Within.

The tyrant clad in black armor.

From "Fate/stay night" comes a figma of the knight dyed in darkness - Saber Alter!

Using the smooth yet poseable joints of figma, you can act out various scenes.
Two expressions are included: her typical expressionless face, as well as a shouting face for combat scenes.
The front parts of her hair can be removed allowing the attachment and removal of her mask. Combined with the two expressions, this allows for various options!
The sombre black lustre of her armor with its blood red streaks have all been sculpted into her figma preserving the truly dark atmosphere around her.
Her Noble Phantasm, 'Excalibur', is also included - dyed a dark black just like the rest of her armor.
A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.

Never did liked this version of Saber due to the mask and Excalibur. Nevertheless true fans would want to get their hands on this ~ Designs reasons. Quite a reasonable price for this..rated 4.7 for colouration and faithful to the orginal.

More Miku PV's please

Live Footage plus Miku = awesome



My list of Miku's Top 5

Top 5 songs by Miku that I enjoy listening to over and over again.

5) Scene ~ Upbeat at the start (kinda hurt my ears if pumped to max) chorus is freakin awesome to listen to. One of those songs that get better and better till the end.



4) From Y to Y ~ Love this song but the bridge after 2nd chorus is kinda too rockish for me. Love the version by 王族BAND feat.初音ミク.



3) Yuuhi Zaka ~ Favourite Instrumental opening for this...love the works by Doriko.



2) Romeo to Cinderella ~ Truly one of the best..guitar and drums harmonized accordingly (Not the normal version but the one by 王族BAND feat.初音ミク which is truly amazing.



1) Packaged ~ My favourite song by miku. Up beat, nice and Vocal's utilized or should I say vocalized to the max.

Makino Yui – Fuwafuwa


If you're pretty much acquainted to Yui Makino, you'll definitely know what to expect from her remarkably childish voice. Thus this is a single to remind you of a Loli's voice that's just surprisingly nice to listen to. The first track fuwafuwa literally meaning fluffy in child speech has a beautiful opening piano melody. The second track the never ending rainbows does seem to make me recall certain elements from songs of the not so distant past.

Tracklist:
1. Fuwafuwa
2. the never ending rainbows
3. Fuwafuwa (instrumental)

Kanji
背は高い方がいいけど そんなタイプじゃなかったの
気難しい感じ…どっちかってゆうと苦手だったかな
話すと全然違ってて 笑うと目が子供みたいで
クシャクシャになっちゃう目元なんかにすごいドキってしたりして
でも…なんでホントのこと言っちゃうバカなの?
最初は「彼女いないよ」ってウソつくのが礼儀でしょ普通
そうよ…なんでこんなフラれた気分なの?
夢見る前から叶わない恋って気付いちゃったじゃない

大好きになった…どうしよう? まだ出会ったばかりなんだけど
切ない気持ちが溢れてきて胸がキュンってなってるよ
そうよ…大好きなんだ…どうにもこうにも すごいことになってきたよ
会いたい気持ちで頭の中ふわふわ♪ってなってるよ
手をつないで離さないで見つめ合って抱きしめ合って
キスし合って髪を触っていつまでもずっとこうしてて

「甘いモノが好き!」って盛り上がって 「食べに行こうよ♪」なんてなって
「ランチならまあいっか…」ってなんか…ありがちな感じよね
ビュッフェの列に並んでたの 普通に話してるんだけど
顔近すぎだって!またなんか意味なくドキってしたりして
「ピアス…これいいねぇ…」って褒められて舞い上がった
けど…「彼女にも見せてあげよう♪」って写メ撮られる…ってこれどうなの?
そうよ…なんでこんなミジメな気分なの?
戦うことすら出来ないバリヤー張られちゃってんの?

大好きになった…どうしよう?見つめ合ったばかりなんだけど
悲しい気持ちが溢れてきて胸がキュンってなってるよ
そうよ…大好きなんだ…なんだかかんだか止まんなくなっちゃったかも
いけない妄想(キモチ)で体中ふわふわ♪ってなってるよ
手をつないで離さないで見つめ合って抱きしめ合って
キスし合って髪を触っていつまでもずっとこうしてて

もしも願いが叶うなら出会いのリセットボタンを押させて
そうよ神様!このバカな彼が恋なんてする前のピュアな頃に私…連れてって下さい

大好きになった…どうしよう? まだ出会ったばかりなんだけど
切ない気持ちが溢れてきて胸がキュンってなってるよ
そうよ…大好きなんだ…どうにもこうにも すごいことになってきたよ
会いたい気持ちで頭の中ふわふわ♪ってなってるよ
手をつないで離さないで見つめ合って抱きしめ合って
キスし合って髪を触っていつまでもずっとこうしてて

Vocaloid of the Week ~ Hatsune Miku









I love this one the most ~ One room feat. Miku Starduster (09)

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn - OP Ryuusei no Namida



Tracks:
1) Ryuusei no Namida
2) Kekkai IN MY BED
3) Ryuusei no Namida (MOVIE Version)
4) Ryuusei no Namida (Instrumental)

Nice Single, since tracks 1,3 and 4 seem to be mellow and relaxing. Track 2's my favourite since it's more upbeat and rock influenced.



Download

Crosslight ~ ゆうきまさみ×kz(livetune)


Tracklist:
1. Overture
2. I.C.(I See)
3. initial song
4. Panorama Future
5. COSMiCA
6. sepia
7. Crosslight



Another great album by Livetune, this time with the collaboration of Gumi. Song songs does seem to suit Gumi better due to her closer to human-pitch vocals compared to Miku. Enjoy.

Chihara Minori – Sing All Love



Chihara Minori – Sing All Love
Tracklist:
1. Kakusei Filament
2. Final Moratorium
3. Tomorrow’s chance
4. Kakikake no Destiny
5. Kodoku no Kesshou
6. Love Medicine*

8. tea for two
9. PRECIOUS ONE
10.Sakura Pierce
11.Falling heaven’s now

This album feels like some random OP/ED jumble up into one collection. Not my cup of tea but nevertheless a nice album for those who grew up watching anime's in the 90's and are pretty much acquainted to the style of that era.

Choucho

For a girl that can do Miku songs, she is seriously not bad. The down part is, she couldn't reproduce all the high pitch notes coz she's only human. Still she deserves credit, esp for Black Rock Shooter.















My favourite so far.

Vocaloid of the Week ~ Hatsune Miku





【王族BAND】RAINBOW SNOW~オーロラにえがいたLoveLetter~【feat. 初音ミク]


This is an album featuring some of the most influential instrumental covers of VOCALOID songs (such as ティッシュ姫 or Tissue-Hime in the English community). They have came together and formed a band call the 「王族BAND」 (Royal Band). They are basically instrumental cover of the same VOCALOID song with Miku singing.(Vocaloid Dash)

Main Artist: 王族BAND
VOCALOID: 初音ミク
Release date: 12/16/2009
Bitrate: CBR 320 Kbps
Tracks: 12

01. 願い星
02. ロミオとシンデレラ
03. 雪が解けたら
04. ドラゴンキラー
05. ミクのクリスマス・イヴ
06. えれくとりっく・えんじぇぅ

One of the best from last year. Some of the redone tracks like From Y to Y and Romeo to Cinderella are nicely done with more acoustic x rock style of input.
