Harmonious Short Cover

The very moment I heard this Outro theme from Aldnoah.Zero’s ep. 23, I thought to myself “I’ve gotta cover this.”

Mainly because I’m a sucker for melodies that are from OSTs and now have actual lyrics to them and also because of how the lyrics paint a picture of what Asseylum imagines the world to be (which doesn’t seem very achievable at this point of time in the show).

Music: Alleluia by Kalafina

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMdFT59HS3E

The A-side song of Kalafina’s new single for Kara No Kyoukai’s new movie: Mirai Fukuin.
In my honest opinion it sounds like a different genre from the other soundtracks that were featured in the previous movies. Still, it’s heartwarming to know that the conclusion movie for the series has such a joyful tune to it. Needless to say, the lyrics are really beautiful and fitting as a conclusion…

I’m in love with it just after one listen.

EDIT: It feels like a really good summary of how the formation of Kalafina came to be: with just Keiko and Wakana leading in the most of the song since the first three movie theme songs only had their vocals, and with Hikaru only joining in as a major vocal closing in at the later releases of the movie releases. :3

Kagen No Tsuki short a capella cover

*goofs around*

Finished this whole video today! Twas a really fun trying to manipulate the different tracks because I broke half of the song into many seemingly manageable parts. That is, until I suffered the consequences of letting laziness take over me and not naming the different tracks. 😀

If you do happen to hear a ticking noise in the background, it’s by the Cuckoo clock that my family brought back from Holland less than a week ago. Pretty loud eh?

Music: Sen no Kaze – Gintoki ver.

Hello!
School’s been busy, yet fun all the while.

Since I’m online, here’s a clip of a really relaxing song covered by Gintoki.
I can’t make up my mind whether to cry or to laugh.

Music: Moshi Kono Kabe no Naka ga Ikken no Ie Dato Shitara

もしこの壁の中が一軒の家だとしたら

My new favourite song.
Starting out as ballad, it seems like a stark contrast to the other two songs in the same single, Jiyuu E No Shingeki. And without listening to the lyrics, the first few verses are actually quite repetitive.
And that’s when I started checking out the lyrics. It actually shows a slightly different perspective in reference to Shingeki No Kyojin. While the other two songs in the single loudly scream about charging forward and defeating their enemies, this melody shows a vastly different meaning to the characters’ purpose of getting away from the tall cages.

You have no idea how much I’ve actually looped this song today after I read and interpreted the lyrics today.

One thing though, the ending of the song is actually part of the first soundtrack in the album, Guren No Yumiya. hmm.

Music: Scars (Stronger For Life) by Corrinne May

For some broken souls that needs a soothing ballad to take them away from the secular materialistic world for a while

I just want to run
Just want to hide away
Close my eyes to your gaze
Just want to leave
Don’t want to hear them say
“You’re no good at this”

When the world swirls with naysayers
Broken wings and torn pages
The road ahead
Swimming in my tears

Break me open
Tear me down
Into pieces
Broken crumbs
On the ground
You can mould and shape me
In your image
Breathe your life
You know I need it
Scars make us stronger for life

Losing myself
Gaining it back again
Forging strength from weakness
All that I am
All that I’m meant to be
Melting in your hand

Let the world swirl with naysayers
Pickled hearts and sour faces
What is real is what I cannot see

Break me open
Tear me down
Into pieces
Broken crumbs
On the ground
You can mould and shape me
In your image
Breathe your life
You know I need it
Scars make us stronger for life

Cut away
All within me
That won’t bear fruit
Cut away
All within me

Cut away
All within me
That won’t bear fruit
Cut away
All within me

Break me open
Tear me down
Into pieces
Broken crumbs
On the ground
You can mould and shape me
In your image
Breathe your life
You know I need it
Scars make us stronger

Scars make us stronger for life
