Topp 5: Tales of-intro låtar

Nu var det dags att köra en sådan här lista tyckte jag, här är några av mina favorit av Tales of-intros. Det var inte lätt att välja ut 5st kan jag säga er, då jag gillar de flesta! Men jag rensade runt tankarna och kom fram till dessa fem följande. Det finns diverse anledningar till jag valde dessa, just på grund av låten, det kan vara animationerna i videon. De kanske håller ett sentimentalt värde för mig, ja ni förstår säker. Men nu ska jag inte tjata längre, här är min topp 5: Tales of-intro låtar.

05. Tales of Phantasia: Yume wa Owaranai av YOMI

Tales of Phantasia var inte bara det första Tales of-spelet, men också ett av de första spelen att ha med sång i sitt intro (om jag inte minns fel). Nu talar jag naturligtvis om Super Nintendo originalet en väldigt skönt och lugnt sång, som jag lyssnar på lite då och då. Den version jag bjuder på är från PlayStation 1 versionen, som tyvärr aldrig släpptes utanför Japan. Som så många Tales of-spel… Dock släpptes den dåliga GBA versionen av spelet här… Har ännu inte spelat igenom detta spel, det är något jag måste rätta till någon dag.

04. Tales of the World: Reve Unitia: Shining Darkness av Nakagawa Nami

Ytterligare en sång från ett spel som aldrig släpptes utanför Japan, Reve Unitia släpptes till 3DS och är något form av crossover spel som alla Tales of the World spelen är. Det var inte allt för längesedan jag hörde denna sången för första gången, den klickade direkt med mig. Tempot, sången, melodin. Det låter för övrigt annorlunda jämfört med hur de flesta Tales of-intron låter. Så den har blivit en snabbt favorit, själva intro filmen är också jäkligt grym.

03. Tales of Symphonia: Starry Heavens av Misono

Tales of Symphonia var det första Tales of-spelet som jag spelade och första gången jag hörde och såg introt blev jag så överförtjust i det. Lyssnade på det i sträck och såg på introt hela tiden, det satte sig verkligen på skallen för min del. Original introt gjordes av gruppen Day After Tomorrow, men gruppen bröt upp och sångerskan Misono fortsatte solo.

02. Tales of the Abyss: Karma av Bump of Chicken

Gitarrer, tempo och rock! Oh, yeah! Tales of the Abyss är ett av mina favorit spel i serien och introt är så jäkla bra! Det har ett schysst tempo som drar med mig in helt och hållet, vi fick en instrumental version av sången i den engelska versionen av spelet. Vi fick dock lite kraftigare gitarrer i sången, men det är synd vi inte fick den som den skulle vara.

01. Tales of Xillia: Progress av Ayumi Hamasaki

I normala fall så är det väl nr 02. som skulle ha varit på första plats då jag verkligen älskar lite rockigare låtar. Men Progress är en sådan låt som sätter sig i hjärtat på mig, den har en sådan vacker och sorgsen melodi. Blir alltid lite rörd och det är även därför den kniper första platsen, film, musik, spel eller vad det nu än kan tänkas vara som berör mig känslomässigt är saker jag värderar väldigt högt. Denna melodin är så underbar.

Håller ni med mig? Tycker ni något annat? Berätta vilka ni tycker är era bästa intron till Tales of-spelen. Har för övrigt en känsla att Tales of Berserias intro Burn av FLOW kommer bli en ny favorit, om jag ska gå efter det jag hört i trailern för spelet.

Anime intros I like (German ver.)

It’s no secret that I love anime, come on! Even the title to this is anime intros I like, dead give away! But before we had internet at home, the only way I could watch anime was on a German TV-channel called RTL2. So I hurried home from school to sit a couple of hours and watch anime, the stuff I missed I recorded. I did this everyday and I somewhat miss it. Thanks to this I learned German, I still have some problems writing in German but I can understand it. So here are some of my favorite anime intros in German. Since its a few videos posted and I don’t want to slow down the site too much, you’ll have to click in on this post. Some videos have crappy quality, sorry about that.

Digimon Season 1 opening
A classic for me! I just love that the German dubbers went with all the music from the Japanese version of the show and not the terrible music the English version got.

Dr.Slump – Opening 1 (New series)
I just love OP and ED with dancing. And I think this was one of my first encounters with just dancing openings. The song is catchy and I really like it. And yes, the series is made by Akira Toriyama.

Jeanne die Kamikaze Diebin – Opening (Jeanne The Phantom Thief)
I really don’t know what I can or should say about this opening. I just like it very much! And the show was/is pretty good too. It’s about an reincarnated Jeanne D’arc who hunts for demons (phantoms) inside of artifacts. I liked it.

One Piece Opening 3
I really like the singer, the happy go lucky style of the song. It’s just a nice and great song, I like it a lot more in German than the original. This intro also has a pretty good English dub.

A great song based on WatchDogs!

In the past I have posted about a guy who calls himself Miracle of Sound and he does music based on videogames. He has done the song “Roll Out” based on Transformers War/Fall of Cybertron games. The song “Nord Mead” based on Skyrim and so on, but two of my favorite songs from him are based of Ubisoft games.
One if based on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and is called “Beneath The Black Flag“, I love that one. A bit of pirate rock, I’ll post a video below.

But yesterday he uploaded a video from the upcoming WatchDogs, which I am starting to get more and more excited about. I fell for this song immediately and it’s called Digital Shadow. I’ve listened to it a couple of times right now and I am having a hard time stopping. Check it out below.

So much to do! And so much to be done!

Damn, I’m almost at the end of my third vacation day and I’ve already done so much. And I still have a few stuff planned for this week. Tomorrow I am going to help a friend buy some cleaning tools for his apartment and check if the last owner really cleaned the apartment like they should have. Then on Friday I’m going to meet another one of my friends, that I hardly spend anytime with. Saturday is also booked by other various things. And on Sunday me and two other friends are going to go watch Pacific Rim! My most anticipated movie of the year! Hopefully it will be awesome, it will be glorious.

And then I am really going to take it easy next week, I really need that. And then next Friday (9th), it is finally time for me to get my hands on Tales of Xillia!! YES!!! I’m turning of my phone and will shut myself in that day. I’m just going out to pick up my preorder and then rush back home and then it’s playtime! For now I have taken a bit of a break from my Playstation 3 and are playing a bit in my 3DS and right now I am playing Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.
A pretty fun game so far. I think this so far is the perfect balance for me, Sony and Nintendo. I got most of what I want from them.

Hopefully my review copy of Saints Row IV will arrive soon and then I’ll be busy with that. But right now life really feels great. It feels really good, right now, today. Hopefully it will feel just as good tomorrow and the day after that. I really am starting to enjoy life, with all it’s quirks and shits. It could be worse and it has been worse, it’s time to focus on the good stuff and try to leave the ugly past behind. That is much easier said than done, mind you. But at least it feels like I have the power to be able to get away from it a bit. And that my friends feels fantastic!

And I’ll leave you all with a song I’ve been listening non-stop to for the last couple of days! Enjoy!

Anime Intros I like #04

Here is part 4 of anime intros I like! This time it’s from the ongoing season animes. Hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. There are various reasons too why I like these songs, as always. I won’t go to into why I like them, some I just really like since they sound good. There are often no other reason than that, or they make me feel happy.

Ixion Saga DT
One of my favorites of this season, I really fell for the melody and I think the lyrics are funny. (Goggle it). It’s a fantasy anime, nothing really special about that. But I thought I was going to hate this show, after a lot of grumbling I decided to watch it. I saw the intro and It hooked me real good! I’m in love with both the show and opening. Enjoy nutcracker the anime! ;)

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
An anime I really didn’t think that I would like, but after hearing the intro I quickly got into the anime. It an upbeat song that makes me happy each time I hear it. And I love how the images changes with the beat of the song, not that its anything special. I just love that kind of thing. I wish I could be a part of this gang, they all seem like fun people and I would probably fit in nicely with the strange people.

Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne!
Another one with a real damn catchy intro! The series in itself is about a sister who loves her big brother a bit too much… Its a comedy harem anime show, if you’ve seen one or two you know what to expect! Still I do enjoy my harem comedies. Series is also called OniiAi, which more or less means brother love.

HIMYM! Barney is the king!

Todays episode of How I Met Your Mother, was awesome. Especially the ending.
We got a great song sung by the character Barney (Neil Patric Harris).
So I decided to rip the song and upload it here. If anyone has any objectives to this I’ll take it down. But hopefully it can stay up.

How I Met Your Mother – Nothing suits me like a suit

How I Met Your Mother- You Just Got Slapped

You need to listen to this!

Last night I managed to get a hold of the Guilty Gear 2 Overture OST2 Rock Tracks. Say, that five time fast! *breaths* The normal music in GG2O wasn’t very good in my opinion. And I really love GG music, I love it a lot! So I was very disappointed.
And theyn they release OST2 Rock tracks, which contains the characters theme songs. And what can I say? Oh my they are forgiven! It features one of the best versions of Holy Order, which happens to be my favorite Guilty Gear song.

So if you haven’t heard it take it from me! You really need to listen to this! Violins & metal are the perfect match! I’m in love again. This is one of these rare songs you find, that you’ll never grow tired of. http://www.sendspace.com/file/6lrsba

And I’m also posting two artwork releases. These pictures have been cleaned up by me and have been redrawn a bit. So here are two Xenosaga pictures I’ve “fixed” so if you see these on the internet, I’m the one who made the retouches to these pictures.

Oh, and by the way, don’t forget to click the Play-Asia banner when you leave. I would greatly appreciate it. thank you very, very much.
