I thought the Blood-C one is your OST to end all OSTs?

The other one was super friendly too! Drawn by my favorite Pixiv person!

I can't get rid of these stupid white lines left and right of my profile pic :(


I much prefer your previous one..

 

Well, you'll need to crop in equal side square to avoid white filler space.

I just cropped the original pic and uploaded it here. The white lines are not there if you click on my profile.

 

 

You're welcome. ^_^

So one of the reason it is good is, because it's as flashy as most other anime OSTs?

You could try downloading the cropped pic and using Paint.net to change the white to gamma.


EDIT: Nevermind.

I've been listening to the Attack On Titan Original Soundtrack more than anything else lately.




It features orchestras with dramatic choirs, rock, metal, electronics, folk music (sometimes all at the same time!) and is the only anime soundtrack that completely blew me away. I seriously almost fall to my knees listening to some of these songs. If you enjoy any of those genres, or anime soundtracks in general, you owe it to yourself to hear this superb OST. I can share samples if you like, but if possible, I strongly suggest making it the next album you hear, ideally in lossless. Highlight tracks are 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 14.

The Attack On Titan Original Soundtrack II is harder to find, as it was a first press bonus for this.




I'll give those songs a listen soon and see what I can do.

It's Sawano. Nuff said.

One of these three:


Lots and lots of really nice and soothing Classic tunes.




It's the bebop OST. Nuff said.




Some seriously cool and calm Jazz smily_headphones1.gif


Never heard the Bartender Soundtrack but I do love that Hyouka OST.

Let's see how long this one will last ;)

Wow, I'm dumb.

I said "It's not overly flashy like a typical Hollywood-style soundtrack."

 

If a passage in a song just goes all over the place with fancy crap, it loses all focus and meaning.

 

There are plenty of exciting songs, and the fact that they stay focused makes them all the more powerful.

 

To anyone who doesn't know already - always use uncompressed image formats (like PNG) for image editing. Otherwise, you risk destroying the image quality. You can always convert to JPG afterwards, but even then, a more advanced free program such as GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) should be used to control the quality. I have converted PNGs to JPGs with Paint in the past that became very pixelated or blurred - even more so when you edit from JPG to JPG.

Sadly there is no "Choose the file format in which you want to steal our art"-option on Pixiv.
I'll get a premium account....one day.

Do I look like someone who cares how my files are named? Go and browse through all the other ones I uploaded.

What I meant was that when you edit an image, you should convert it to PNG and keep it in PNG for the backup, then convert that to JPG if need be.

 

I just thought it was funny, that's all.

 

If you didn't see, I edited my post at the top of the page and added "For the record, my favorite OST of all time is the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Original Soundtrack."

Currently going through FF Type-0's OST and I'm kinda torn between like and hate.

Some tracks like it's version of Prelude and track 12-14 with it wide use of melodies and instruments are amazing to me. Then I get a tracks that's basically a synthesizer with a rhythm guitar and I feel like I've been throw back into 1997, and not in a good way.


Currently 6/10. Decent, but random 8-bit music is a big negative for me

Yeah, it's one of those soundtracks where some tracks are mind-blowingly good and others are just meh. Sometimes I wish it wasn't so repetitive.

 

My favorite songs from Type-0 are We Have Arrived, Three Hours Of Fate, Battle - Pursuit, and To Fly In The Sky.

The concept is neat, but the jokes are a bit underwhelming.


What's really funny though, is the comment section under this video.
Comedy gold. Read at your own risk. Your IQ might drop a few points.

Come to the US sometime... We'll go shooting. ;)

 

Meh, so basically piracy stuff that won't affect us at all isn't going to affect us.

Yes, they are fun to shoot, but you don't need one for self defense if no one else has one! Put some trust in your taxpayer-funded police force (says the government)

 

 

Yep, but it's still a good idea to stock up!

For images I upload here, I just use whatever format is more space efficient so it gets uploaded quicker. For screenshots and other pictures that have a lot of uniform color, I use PNG, otherwise if it's a picture with a lot of different colors then I use JPG.
