Day 16 – Favorite opening theme song

Yellow there! It’s freaking snowing outside as I’m writing this O__o. Ok, local weather report aside let’s move on to today’s topic!

While the title can be misleading if, like me, you wanna be a smarty-pants and go all ‘well, that can refer to an OP from any type of series, right? xD’, I dare say it refers to a theme song from some sort of BL ^^”.

Trouble is that I approached this post with my heart set on writing about how much I love the song Ashita, Boku wa Kimi ni Ai ni Iku. (明日、僕は君に会いに行く。) by Wakaba (ワカバ). And then I look it up on MAL again, only to find out that it’s actually an ED  (oT-T)尸.

After doing a bit of thinking though, I think I’ll go with Tsuki no Curse (月のカース) by Okina Reika (翁鈴佳), from the oh-so-fabulous Loveless (ラブレス).

loveless

The song was written and composed by Yuki Kajiura (梶浦 由記) and is probably the only good thing about the series. I guess what makes me like this OP instead of others is that it’s somehow more mature. The OPs for Sekai-Ichi and Junjou, for example, are nice as well but for some reason they always seemed a wee bit over the top. Or maybe I’m left with that impression because of the animation part of those OPs xD. Tsuki no Curse on the other hand just feels like an overall balanced song, powerful enough to stand on its own.

I hope at least some of the above makes sense :D. As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Day 12 – Favorite BL voice actor

*scratches head* See the ‘problem’ I’ve got here is that I’m not too familiar with seyuus in general ^^”. I mean, yeah, I’ll be able to recognise someone’s voice across different anime, but I’m really bad with names and all that jazz :D:D.

Still, after doing some research here are the names and faces behind some of the most awesome voices I’ve heard in a BL context (which is basically limited to BL anime/VNs, as I haven’t actually listened to drama CDs a lot).

Konishi Katsuyuki (小西 克幸)

5b819edbe3c8ef51ed97eaa154e6d528

Notable in my world (and in this context) for his role as Takano in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi :D. I know he also voiced Soubi in Loveless, but I was never really a fan of that show ^^”. Still, this guy’s voice is beyond amazing.

Sakurai Takahiro (櫻井 孝宏)

55E

He voiced Misaki in Junjou Romantica!! 😀

Taniyama Kishou (谷山 紀章)

748a05462056cdd21da59ddacf4770f2

He voiced Sono-san from Sensitive Pornograph and Gunji in Togainu no Chi (the anime). This guy also voiced Jean Kirstein in Shingeki no Kyojin xD.

Midorikawa Hikaru (緑川 光)

hikaru-midorikawa

Because he was brilliant in the role of Shiki in Togainu no Chi. Not to mention Lancer and Rukawa, among others ^___________________^.

Nakazawa Masatomo (中澤 匡智)

28879

He voiced Clear from DRAMAtical Murder (in both the VN and anime)!!!! What more could one ask for? ♡(˃͈ દ ˂͈ ༶ )

I’ll stop here before for now. Hope this post didn’t turn out too bland xD.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
