According to Dengeki G’s Magazine July issue, Key’s new project “Angel Beats!” was confirmed to be a TV anime series between Key, Aniplex and Dengeki G’s Magazine. I can’t find the words to express my excitement right now. I’m sort of relieved that Angel Beats is an anime instead of a visual novel since it means I don’t have to divide my attention between this and Rewrite. I wonder when it will actually air though and whether there will be some sort of formal connection with Rewrite. Of course what’s most important is which studio is animating Angel Beats. Although I really hope Key sticks with KyoAni it appears that it will be A-1 Pictures (Kannagi) working on this which I don’t mind.
I added a new Header to celebrate. I love Key so much.

Taking a break from playing Moon. and with roughly a month left until the start of the summer anime season, I decided to comb through the new shows to compile my quarterly anime watch list. As far as I am concerned the lineup seems to be strong with plenty of variety catering to many of my interests. Now onto my list.

Basquash’s ending song is very cool and catchy. A lot of the lines get repeated multiple times so I decided to leave in the repeat symbols in the translation to keep it from looking like a mess. I wonder if the full version of the opening will be just as enjoyable. I’m still wondering when the moon idols will show up in the actual show though. (EDIT: Never mind. They appear in the eighth episode and sounds like they will be playing in the next episode)

I can’t believe it’s real but the just like many sites reported the eighth episode of “The Reairing of Suzumiya Haruhi” was in fact Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody marking the official start of the long-anticipated season 2. Like everyone else I’ve been waiting for new episodes every since watching the last episode of the original. In fact I refused to read the novels to keep from spoiling myself. Thinking about it now it seems a little silly especially if we never got any new episodes until 2012 like I have joked about a few times but thankfully I was wrong.

Wonder Wind is an interesting departure from the first season’s two openings. When I watched the first episode of 2nd season I initially wondered if it really was Hayate no Gotoku or not. However it really is a wonderful song. I’ve once again included an English translation and just in case you are wondering I used Eclipse’s translation as reference. I really should stop using “wonder” in every sentence.

Fuwa Fuwa Time is terribly embarrassing if you know what the lyrics mean so I felt it was my duty to translate them to do the song justice. Enjoy~!

The official Umineko no Naku Koro ni anime website was updated yesterday with a substantial seiyuu announcement rounding off all 18 of the characters trapped on the isolated world of 1986 Rokkenjima. Joining the previously announced kids and the Golden Witch Beatrice herself are an additional 12 seiyuu comprising the roles of the adult Ushiromiya family members and the servants.

I promise I will get back to writing non-lyrics posts soon…maybe. Depending on my mood I may also do a few more songs later namely Spiral and Link (OP and ED for Asura Cryin’ respectively). Anyway I also gave my try at an English translation for this song since I’ve been obsessed with SoraKake lately for some reason that I don’t even know. Enjoy~!

This was actually revealed two days ago but according to the Umineko no Naku Koro ni anime website, sound talent from the original games will be used for the anime adaptation of Umineko. Shikata Akiko, singer of the theme song for the sound novels, will also lend her voice to the anime’s theme song. The single will go on sale August 19 for 1260 yen though the title has yet to be decided. In addition dai, the music director for the original works, will also be participating in the musical score. The anime will use tracks from the novels as well as new arrangements and new songs.

Another amazing song from songstress May’n. This was one of the reasons I was originally interested in Shangri-La in the first place. In a strange twist, I decided to do an English translation this time around though I don’t guarantee it will be incredible or anything. Enjoy!
