Hey guys. Had some questions and was hoping you guys could clear things up. I've basically spent the last 3 hours listening to Kalafina and FictionJunction songs on youtube. I have to say I'm completely blown away. They have AMAZING voices. I've only listened to mainstream j-pop/rock till now so I've never really spent time listening to what I would describe "opera" style vocals. This band will definitely affect my criteria for my next headphone purchase as I want to hear their songs shine even more. 

 

Anyway I digress from my question. What is the difference between Kalafina, FictionJuntion and Yuki Kajiura? I know for sure 2 of the members from Kalafina are in FictionJuntion, not sure about the 3rd as she hardly gets any screen time.


Yuki Kajiura formed both FictionJunction and Kalafina, some artists are in both groups.

What?! You haven't watched Madoka or Kara no Kyoukai? 

Go listen to "Magia" and "oblivious"

The new Fate/Zero opening is pretty baller too, probably one of my favourites from Kalafina.

I didn't watch madoka because...well I thought manliness was at stake, it gave me a creepy feeling anyway, as for kara no kyoukai, it's still on my waiting list, still have a few more animes to watch. :P

Can you elaborate a bit more if you know please? Why did she form 2 groups? Which group came first? Are all the member of Kalafina in FictionJunction? Do both groups still make songs or is only 1 of them active? 

 

Sorry fo all the questions. I've done a google search but not much information comes up. I listened to the live performance of "magia" on youtube earlier. Mindblowing performance. Really poweful song.

... Just finished Deadman Wonderland... enjoyed the story... the violence I wasn't a fun of... It was simmilar to Eureak 7 though imo.

 

Renton, through dealing with a girl who is stronger than him, figures out he has some growing up to do and some power to gain... Ganta falls under that same category! I won't be reading the manga though... violence... between this and Champloo I've had enough for two lifetimes >.>

 

Still... Shiro's personality caught my attention enough to drag me through all that...

Hasn't watch Eureak 7, but, yeah, Deadman Wonderland is quite violent, but it wasn't really bothering me. Too bad that there is no 2 season yet. Shiro is quite interesting character who wasn't really revealed much through out the anime as well as the story itself. We can only guess.

Can I get any recommendations for mangas that are slice of life ish? That are complete? (like a suzuka type? not sure if the name is right.) 

There is also this one manga where these school kids are on a cruise ship but then its become capsized, and there's a zombie breakout on the ship in the middle of nowhere. The "zombies" become extremely violent and infect other ppl. There is one guy in a wheel chair and this other girl that is infected that's who's pissed at the group and is hunting them. Something like this? Maybe somebody knows what i'm  talking about... ><

Just got the blassreiter insert song "DD by Itou Kanako" stuck in my head, now I can't stop listening to it...
Didn't know Itou Kanako can speak English / French until now.



I've got the whole soundtrack Blassreiter soundtrack in lossless FLAC beyersmile.png. The soundtrack is very well produced with lots of dynamics and detail although the theme songs like Unripe Hero or Detarame na Zanzou is brickwalled but they are super good songs, I like Unripe Hero more though. About DD by Itou Kanako, I also have it but being an almost native French speaker, I can't stand listening it in French because she has such a weird accent that I can't help but laugh each time I hear it.

Glad you like Blassreiter, when I saw it first I thought it was quite slow but oh boy does it speeds up afterwards and it's generally a very, very good anime although not for everyone because of it's very, very dark themes. Not many wants to watch something about suicide, despair, loneliness, regret and everything that is negative. For me though, I like it very much. But the animation is very pale compared to Redline. Redline is a masterpiece in animation.

 

Oh and also when I watched Aquarion EVOL ep. 15, first thing I thought was: "Did the animation become worse?". Maybe that was just an effect after seeing Redline which makes almost every anime look dull.

Sorry but I don't know anymore than this, I only looked them up since I really liked the ED of kara no kyoukai.

LOL, good thing I don't know french, The English ver. of DD in the soundtrack is good though, and I'm a native english speaker.

The English ver. seem to be mastered differently with more bass.

Blassreiter doesn't get really good until half the season as I've said before. 

 

Didn't really like EVOL... 

Watch it for the sake of completing the series and I've got nothing better to do.

The description of this manga reminds me about Bowei and his trip. Wonder is it live action style?biggrin.gif

 

Speaking about zombies and other related stuff...Has anyone played the game Corpse Party? I played on PSP, and if I am not wrong there is manga called like that.
