About Tatakau Iji ga Aru

Previous Entry Tatakau Iji ga Aru Jun. 13th, 2008 @ 11:05 am Next Entry
Online time has been scarce, but tomorrow I hope to finish and post a writeup on a miracle in May...



Today, though, am about to head out for my fifth annual birthday anime song marathon. Made it to 202 last year, but after that, M-sensei told me to never do anything like that again. Soooo...this time, instead of singing the entire song, figure I'll just sing its first verse. 300 one-verse songs should be about the same time and vocal wear as 150 songs with two and a half to three verses, right? ;^) My scores will get downgraded for stopping early, but Joysound's Utasuki system keeps a record of your last 300 songs, so I can print that afterwards for proof of the doofy feat.

So, will be back tomorrow--but in the meantime, here's Isao Bitou's tremendous "Ashita no Joe" performance from this year's NHK concert, finally up on YouTube. In this two-verse arrangement (which is actually the song's first and third verses), Bitou-san's delivery of the second verse's "oreranya tatakau iji ga aru" line gets me every time...

Off to test my own tatakau iji!

Oh, oops, forgot to mention...! Didja see the new Halko Momoi special Thundershot II car coming out in Tamiya's 4WD line? Two photos of her with the car are at http://www.hlj.com/hlj_gallery2/v/toy08/momoi.png.html and http://www.hlj.com/hlj_gallery2/v/toy08/____2.png.html (the captions are bilingual but only show up all in Japanese [if you're using a Japanese OS] or all in English [if you're using an English-language OS].

He's a longtime big-name star--but he still finds time for "Ashita no Joe"!

300!?! O.o

Wow. I think my voice gives out after... 40-50 songs, even if they're short. ^^;

That's because your voice is a lot smarter than mine! ;^)

Did manage to make it to 300, though! (The gruesome details are at http://www.anisoncentral.com/ak/bd2008.html)
