ONE PIECE is, without a doubt, my number 1 favourite anime ever! We Are! is the anime’s first opening song, and I argue, the best theme song in the anime series. It just embodies everything the series is about: fun piracy, friendship, and the pursuit of dreams. It is also very catchy. Kitadani Hiroshi sings very well, bringing energy and fun into the song. It will remain inside your head for a long time. I just love it! Many thanks to Nintendo Dark for uploading a copy of the anime OP into Youtube.
Seriously. Osaka Station’s water clock is A-MA-ZING! It doesn’t only show the time, but it can also create patterns such as flowers, musical notes, and so much more. It is deemed as 1 of the world’s most amazing clocks by popularmechanics.com (Click here to view post). I’ll never get bored watching this. How I wish we have one of these in the subways here in Canada. sigh Oh well, thank goodness for Youtube. Many thanks to ゴリモン (gorimon) for sharing the video.
I’ve never heard of the visual kei rock band UCHUSENTAI: NOIZ before, until I discovered that they are singing a cover of the Tagalog song Liwanag sa Dilim (Light in the Darkness) by the Filipino rock band Rivermaya. As a Filipino-Canadian, I’m very familiar with Rivermaya, so a Japanese rock band singing their song intrigued me. This intrigue turned to interest when I learned that UCHUSENTAI: NOIZ is covering Filipino songs to raise support for the victims of the deadly typhoon Yolanda (known as typhoon Haiyan to the rest of the world).
