I watched episode 1 with Spark last night at 3 in the morning. I am very confused, but it looks interesting even if the animation seems a little, in every literal sense of the word, sketchy.

Puns aside, it looks interesting and I think I'll probably definitely maybe watch episode 2.

Welcome! A warning though that episode 02 doesn't help to explain/advance the story in episode 01, it'll pick up again in episode 03.

Even then, the entire series is pretty confusing, so I hope Spark can help clear things up (with or without giving away spoilers XP). If you have any questions though feel free to ask. =)

(Incidentally, today is the anniversary of episode 02 whoo whoo Momoobs)

It appears that all of the Kagepro songs have finally been covered! Well, almost. Both of Ene's songs are missing. And Kenjirou's, for that matter. That being said, why don't I just give my impressions on a few of them.

Children Record-
Spoiler: show
It's common for these songs to be labeled "Jin feat. ___", but none of them actually include the man's voice... except for this one cover. I used to think that Jin only opened his mouth for Summertime Record because of time constraints or something... It's now apparent the this wonderful creator really just felt like singing.
Other than that little surprise and the fact that it is a duet, the cover is surprisingly faithful to the original.


Yabanashi Deceive-
Spoiler: show
Musically, I prefer the original. But this is Kagepro, and the music itself isn't everything! This sucker also has a pair of singers, but takes it a few steps further than Children Record. Remember Female!Kano from IA's vid? Seems reasonable to me that she wouldn't have the same voice as everyone's favorite shady guy!


Shounen Brave
Spoiler: show
All right, I got a bit of beef with this one. The featured singer's name threw me through a loop right off the bat. By the time I found this, I was already aware of Nano, another singer who's active in the East. As such, the name 'nano.RIPE' grabbed my curiosity... then through it into the crater of Mt. Fuji. As it turns out, RIPE's voice was grating my ears so badly I couldn't appreciate the otherwise awesome sounding instrumentals. Sorry, but I can't say I agree with Jin's choice on this one.


Shinigami Record-
Spoiler: show
Now this- this was freakin' beautiful. I'm not sure if I should blame Kingdom Hearts or my fourth grade science teacher, but there's something about serene pianos that plays on my nostalgia. Given that it builds up throughout the entire song before almost fading out, I get the feeling that the music itself is trying to tell the tragic tale alongside the lyrics. I certainly can't complain about that.


Outer Science-
Spoiler: show
This. Freakin'. Song. If there was ever a reason to complain about MCA being rushed. Can you imagine how awesome it would be if it was used in the Kuroha sequence? Between the occasional swap in instruments and the excess sound effects, this rendition gives an air of organised chaos. And isn't that what the massacres are? The only thing standing against this one is the monologue preceding it. Given that I don't actually know the language, it seems kinda pointless to me. Wish I could fix that...


I don't really have much to say about the rest of 'em for the time being, so I guess I'll drop off here. Adios!

Hey, Med! Welcome back, it's nice to hear from you again~

I agree with most of your assessments of the songs. It was quite a surprise to hear what a good singer Jin was and that he reprised again for Children Record. The duet with MARiA works really well. I wish he'd sing more often... You don't need to use Vocaloid damnit!
On a related note, I found a pretty good English cover of MCA's CR. It's rare for me to find CR covers I like, and with impressive translyrics to boot!

I would've preferred a male-female duet for Yobanashi Deceive as well, but MARiA and LiSA have sung it together in concert before. Not a big fan of their version but it's okay. The jazz portion is pretty nice at least.

Ahhh nano.RIPE. I admit I laughed when I saw they'd be covering it, since I was familiar with their work from other shows. The vocals can be annoying, but their instrumentals are usually nice. I don't mind the rendition so much since I'm used to the voice, and it's kinda unique in its own way. Having it sung by hard rock tomboy nano would've been interesting though...

Shinigami Record is a definite improvement over the original. I love the fantasy feeling of it, and combining Lia sends chills down the spine.
Don't think I've shared it here yet, but Yumeko also did a gorgeous piano cover that's equally tragic.

I have mixed feelings on Outer Science. I do like Teddyloid's dubstep remix, although I wish they could've used an actual singer. The monologue at the beginning also feels a bit unnecessary as you described, but I can see what they were going for. Here's a translation if you're interested, and a version with the dialogue cut out.

While I'm here may as well comment on the other new covers. Gunjou Rain is definitely one of my favorites, and the mix + vocals do it greater justice than I could've asked for. ='3 I wasn't even expecting such a husky tone from the preview and Okui Aki's previous performances of Shinigami Record and AToH, but it works beautifully.

Toumei Answer was another pleasant surprise. When I heard it'd be by the same guy who sang Kagerou Days, I cringed. Here his breathless tone actually really fits though, and Annabel's lovely softness complements the slow pace.

Marry no Kakuu Sekai... Hoo boy. I'm sorry but I still can't stop laughing at it. I get what they were going for but the child's voice is just uh... ^^; It would've been fine with just Lia. Also a little disappointed it wasn't rearranged either. Although I read a theory that

Spoiler: show
it's an older Marry singing with her child after Seto + the Dan have died, which makes it a lot more sympathetic...

I told you to keep the faith alive! :p I'm very happy for you. At best, this is a full remake. At worst, this is an adaptation of one of the other media's plots. (Please don't be the manga, please don't be the manga, please don't be the manga ...!)

Wasn't able to get that into MCA the first time around. Big hype, big letdown. Hopefully this time, with lowered expectations and (we hope!) a better studio and director, I'll be able to see the magic which resulted in the light novels being the No.1 top-selling light novels in all of Japan that year.

(because dammit we need more cute and fluffy and not more despair)

Spoiler: show
Azami somehow summons the three gorgons. They aren’t sure where she is on the family tree but she’s smol and cute so Euryale and Stheno adopt her (and the dan) along the way.

Kido and Rider connect instantly: they are both tall and had troubled childhoods / lives and stay in their rooms and do stuff

Marry shows Rider her yaoi book collection *shot*

The three of them LOVE Marry and Azami’s hair while they’re jealous that the Gorgon sisters have low maintenance hair

Kano jokes about Rider being tall: gets the Rider / Kido x2 kick combo

Momo introduces Euryale and Stheno to idol life and they both wonder if they should take the idol world by storm

Euryale and Stheno are super bad influences to Hiyori rip Hibiya

Euryale uses Konoha to get around because he is strong

Euryale and Stheno invite them to “their private island”

Ayano initially doesn’t get what the statues are and thinks they are good artists

Azami breaks it to her and she goes into shock

SHIN FREAKS THE FUCK OUT HE’S SURROUNDED BY DEAD PEOPLE

Seto sees their pegasi and instantly becomes their friend

Seto takes Marry on a pegasus ride and they have good time

Asterious shows up

SHIN FREAKS THE FUCK OUT EVEN HARDER oh no he fainted

Ene finds this hilarious

Shin finally comes to and tries to take Ayano on a pegasus ride but it bucks himm

“Master pegasi only let pure poeple ride them yur not pure”

Marry is terrified by Asterios at first but he just pats her on the head and then he’s shaped like a friend

They play hide and seek. no one can find marry. No one knows where she is. She pops up out of Asterios’ hair. The perfect camoflague.

they all have fun and no one dies (ha. ha. right)

Jin just announced a new album titled "Mekakucity Reload" (in addition the upcoming animé by the same name, which still has no more news yet). It looks like it will feature brand new songs, including one for "The story of enduring/hiding the Eyes" (aka Kido). Does this mean she'll finally get her own PV...? =O

Edit- The teaser for the next song is going to be "A Story with Open Eyes" titled "失想ワアド".

Boys and girls, it's time to wake up.

A new song has been released featuring the leader of the Mekakushi Dan, Kido Tsubomi.

One thing to note:

Spoiler: show
Quote:
Tsubomi means “flowerbud”

Kido hated the name.

Now?

She describe herself as a flower at the end of the MV
via this tumblr post


Edit- Rough translation:

Spoiler: show
Quote:
the reflection in the mirror says
“good morning, it’s another new day”
and as usual, the expression on my face
is the worst

my awkward smile,
my bedhead and my every action
the more I look, the more I despite them all
it’s unfair, really

there’s a number of things I’d like say
as anyone else might
but these thoughts never leave my mouth

keeping my eyes on the ground
today too, I’ll stay silent
“wow, she can’t even say hello?”
“poor girl”

the plants in the garden were so pretty
envious, I simply watched
and in comparison, I realised
I really am so useless
if only I could just disappear…

surprisingly, in this world we live in
even accomplishing the most “mundane” things can be difficult
unable to respond to anything with even a single word
it all felt so stupid, I couldn’t help but cry

the same misunderstandings just kept happening again and again
and I would just come to hate them again and again
a flower bud that began to wither before it could bloom
I thought my future would surely be a wordless one

a strange expression on my face that resembled fear
despite that I was the first to run -
god I’m hopeless, so hopeless
so embarrassed, I decided to keep my mouth shut
I really hate this

there people out there who can laugh like flowers*
and exchange words beautifully bloomed words
suddenly, the reflection in the mirror says in a begrudging voice
“I’ll never be able to be like that”
“I’m sorry“

it was a picture perfect world out there
envious, I simply watched
what should I do
so that I won’t ever get in the way?
I want it to go away
but it just won’t, aah

and as my very own self began to overflow
it was terribly pathetic and unbecoming
so that no one would ever find out,
I sat alone in the corner of the room and cried

but out of the blue, a voice reached out to me and said
“it’s okay, you don’t have to force it go away“
as if those resounding words were magic,
I found myself speechless

don’t be afraid, put your thoughts into words
all those things you’ve bottled up -
say them all, say them all
and as if I had done something wrong, I cried out
“I really am an idiot, aren’t I?“

what I eventually arrived at was “the future”
yes, a world painted in vibrant colours
and as I continue to become an adult,
I continue to change
while still holding onto these
unchanging, precious feelings of mine

surprisingly, in this world we live in
even the act of “remembering” can be difficult
so that I won’t lose sight of these words that are so important to me
I’ll continue to pass them on

it’d be perfect if one day, in this world,
I was able to laugh happily with someone else
and as I’m thinking about things like this,
I realise I’ve found a purpose for myself in the future

as I fix my bedhead, I decide to head out
today too, as I look straight at the petals
of the flower being reflected into the mirror
“good morning again,” I respond
and begin make my way
via this tumblr post


The final installment of the Kagerou Daze novels was also published yesterday. I'm still awaiting on further translations, but if you'd like to know what details I have so far feel free to contact me.

Lil' Bluey It's August 15th Imma spam this thread as much as I can

If anyone wants to hear a preview for another new song, here's Jin singing Remind Blue live on a stream.

(I've heard it may be an Ene, Hibiya, or Seto song? Guess we'll have to wait for translations/official release to see.)
