The Wonder of Short Film “Shelter”…and the Debate: Is it Really Anime?

I’m sure that many of you have already heard and watched the latest trending anime short film titled Shelter, a collaboration between electronic music producers Porter Robinson and Madeon and, of course, Japanese animation studio A-1 Pictures.

Shelter tells the story of Rin, a 17-year-old girl who lives her life inside of a futuristic simulation completely by herself in infinite, beautiful loneliness. Each day, Rin awakens in virtual reality and uses a tablet which controls the simulation to create a new, different, beautiful world for herself. Until one day, everything changes, and Rin comes to learn the true origins behind her life inside a simulation.

The Best Piano Cover of Tokyo Ghoul’s “Unravel”

tokyo ghoul

The first time I watched the seinen dark fantasy anime series Tokyo Ghoul, I was hooked immediately.  It was awesome!  I don’t care what everyone else say.  I love both seasons of the anime, even if there are a lot of differences from the manga.

One of the most memorable parts of the anime  is the opening theme song Unravel by TK from the band Ling Tosite Sigure.  When I heard it for the first time, I was like:  “Oh my gosh!  This song is awesome!  I have to get this song!”  Months afterwards, I was hanging out on Youtube and by pure coincidence I encounter this amazing piano cover by Animenz.  If you’re not following this guy yet, oh my gosh, you’re missing out.  He’s a piano genius!  I love all of his videos, but my favourite is his cover of Tokyo Ghoul’s Unravel.  Watch his video below and prepare to be amazed.

I’ll Walk “A Thousand Miles” Just To See ONE OK ROCK

Happy Monday, folks!  How are you all doing?  I just want to share with you guys this Japanese band that I recently discovered thanks to a recommendation by a Twitter pal, Rachel.  The band’s called ONE OK ROCK.  Now many of you may already be familiar with them from listening to the theme songs of the live-action film adaptations of Rurouni Kenshin.  If you are, good for you.  If not, it’s never to late to admire this dreamy and talented band of good-looking guys.

The song that I’m going to share with you today is an acoustic cover of ONE OK ROCK of the beautiful English song A Thousand Miles, originally sung by Vanessa Carlton.

Clash of Modern & Traditional in “Senbonzakura” by Wagakki Band

Hello folks!  I just want to introduce an awesome band I recently discovered called Wagakki Band (和楽器バンド).   They were recommended to me by an e-mail pal, and I just found myself drawn to their unusual music.  They combine modern hardrock with traditional Japanese music elements and the results are electric!  Thanks a bunch for the recommendation, Coco!  The following song is titled Senbonzakura (千本桜).
