…definitely NOT the best of both…er, all worlds.
I’m talking about the ending theme for the anime Needless. Despite its nearly mentally scarring yuri fanservice video which pretty much had shit to do with the series, the ending song itself is a lot to gripe about.
Recipe for an fanservice-filled trying-too-hard-to-be-a-kickass-shounen-anime ending song:
1 Kitamura Eri
1 Makino Yui
1 Goto Saori
1 Chihara Minori
Ahahaha Madhouse, nice one. You almost got me there with the lineup.
WAIT WAIT WAIT…aren’t these seiyuu supposedly GOOD at singing…?
Individually, these girls do have rather nice voices, with Kitamura Eri and Chihara Minori erring on the sharper-sounding side, while Makino Yui and Goto Saori have softer, cutesier, ’rounder’ tones.
…so you think the creators would be wise enough to hire someone to write a song that plays to each of their vocal strengths…? Or in some cases, with a flock of good singers, the end result will be good no matter what you throw at them…?
Just stick these four lovely women in a generic anison mixer, crank the pitch up too many notches, cook the music long enough so it comes out burnt and uninspired, and sprinkle some annoying moe yells…
and voila! Bon appetit!
Needless Girls+ – aggressive zone
I guess you can still hear it’s them…and maybe it’s mean to be some glorified charasong but…Jesus Christ. I know people can turn Miley Cyrus into some decent pop singer by giving her a decent song, but it never ceases to amaze me how good singers can sound so bad with the wrong songs…
And the worst part about “aggressive zone” is that the chorus is so damn catchy and it might end up on my mp3 player in my bunch of mindless music (though it can’t quite beat the horrible vocal of Gotou Yuuko’s “Special Days”)…it’s already wormed its way into my brain…ARGH. D:
P.S. I wanted to write a separate post for this, but decided I was too lazy.
After my rant about the song, you can go view the horrific ED sequence to make both your eyes AND ears bleed!
AND after that, you must watch this EPIC PARODY…words fail me. But then again, it’s also because it’s almost 6 AM and I’ve stayed up all night trying to write a lab report without much success 0rz ||
