Looking Back at 2010 and Planning Ahead for 2011


Another year has passed and with it another year of blogging has been added to the archives. I want to take this opportunity to reflect on how my blogging and other otaku-related activities have gone over the last year as well as layout my plans for the rest of this year. This is somewhat long …

Twelve Days of Anime: The Condensed One Day Version


So I had originally decided to join in on this twelve days of anime thing since I’ve never done it in all the years I’ve spent blogging. However since it was a kind of a rushed decision and other things getting in the way, I am late to the party and only have the time …

[Lyrics] Angel Beats! Insert Song – Ichiban no Takaramono (Original Version) [karuta]


The karuta version of Ichiban no Takaramono is slightly different from the Yui Version. The main difference is that verses 1 and 4 are completely unique to each version. There are also a few changes scattered around the song but most are variations of “you” to “everyone.” I’m not sure which one I like more. …

[Lyrics] Angel Beats! Insert Song – Ichiban no Takaramono (Yui Ver.) [Girls Dead Monster]


Here’s the single that many people have been waiting for. Ichiban no Takaramono (My Most Precious Treasure) played at the end of episode 10 and towards the end of episode 13. Both were really emotional scenes of departure and the song really fits that motif. Apparently these are lyrics for the Yui Version but I …

[Lyrics] Angel Beats! Insert Song – Shine Days [Girls Dead Monster]


It’s a little later than usual but here are translations for one of the two insert songs played in episode 10. The other song hasn’t been released yet. Anyway I’ll be doing the other two songs on the Little Braver single later even though I doubt they’ll be played in any subsequent episodes considering what …

It’s time once again to make an exception to my no episodic posts policy thanks to the latest episode of Angel Beats! As always be prepared for plenty of spoilers. I would suggest watching the episode first so as not to lose any of the emotional impact. First a summary followed by some thoughts.

[Lyrics] Angel Beats! OP – My Soul, Your Beats! [Lia]


I didn’t mean to do this single today but I found a copy of it so I here are the lyrics a little early. Lia is such an amazing singer. I hope they release the LiSA AKA Yui version on the next single (so that I have one less song to do). The ED translation …
