Yui

Watching anime has been part of my life since childhood days. Aside from the addictive plot of these Japanese animations, their music has been one of the factors why I still continue watching their work of art, as I may say. :)


Are you familiar with "Rolling Star," an opening song from the anime "Bleach"? This is one of those catchy songs I have heard from an anime so far. The craving to listen to this song drove me to search the artist behind this song. And the google search showed me this name... "Yui."


Yui is one of the most popular singer-songwriter & composer of her time. Her full name is Yui Yoshioka but she was popularly known with her first name, YUI. She had sold millions of copies of her albums and won different awards. She had 4 albums and "Holidays in the Sun" as her latest.


What I wanted to share though is not about her biography but what are her songs that surprisingly used as either an opening or ending theme of Anime. You'll be surprise that all along you were listening to her voice. :)
Here are some of her songs excerpt from Japanese animations.


  • Rolling Star ~ 5th opening song from anime "Bleach"
  • Life ~ 5th ending song from anime "Bleach"
  • Again ~ 1st opening song from anime "Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood"
  • It's all too much/Never say die ~ opening and insert song from anime movie "Kaiji"

I consider her as one of the successful artists of our time. :) Enjoy listening.

Beautiful Lie

I just can't accept the fact that there are lies so beautifully structured... you can't see how dark it is in the surface. 
It will make you believe and later make you dumb.
Then you'll soon realize that you've just been played.


Have you felt such thing like this?




Perfect denial.

choose

You can't have the best of both worlds.

You need to choose.

Sometimes, we are only allowed to choose once.

and the other choice will no longer be an option.

When you finally decide to choose...

hold on with it... fight for it... live with it.

Why?

'cause sooner you'll realize...


there's no turning back.

Keep on

at the end of the day or after a long waited (un)expected outcome of an unendless longing of something...

we still manage to straighten up everything or atleast tried to...

and keep on learning...


that not all the world can offer is Good... sometime's it's Bad or...



Worse.

Tokio Hotel.

Among the international bands that I like to listen to, this is one of those that caught my attention instantly (not to mention 30 seconds to Mars, too). But this band was entirely different with the music of 30 seconds to Mars.

I just recently discovered this band when it was introduced to me by my girlfiend weeks ago. I was surprised that they were German band and I don't understand any single lyric on their songs. Fortunately, after the big success of their first album "Schrei," they released an english version of thier first album and later created english versions of their succeeding albums and singles.  Their hit song "Burch Den Monsun" was later translated to english with title "Monsoon." And so their other songs like 1000 Oceans, Scream, Ready, Set, Go!, etc.

Their song "Automatic" first reigned the top 1 on Myx. Yes, our local music channel. After several awards from MTV and the first ever German Band that sold million of copies in Europe, they were finally invading Asia.

The band is composed of Twin Brothers Bill & Tom Kaulitz, Vocalis and guitars, respectively. Georg Listing (Bass Guitar) and Gustav Schafer (Drums)

The name "Tokio Hotel" was excerpt from "Tokyo" their love of the city and "Hotel" for non-permanency and always moving from one place to another.
