This was done at the request of Zzeroparticle from the MyAnimeList club ‘Anime Music Piece of the Week.’ I mentioned my love and skill for singing this song, and so he challenged me. The sound reception on this (new) camera and the ability to hear my voice above the music was far better than expected, so if it sucks, it’s mostly my fault for sucking XD. I think it gets off to a rocky start, but is all-around a decent performance :D Nice to have a video of my singing a song that isn’t completely and utterly creepy XD. Now that I finally have a camera with which I can easily do these videos, expect more in the future!
(yes, I am aware of the huge zit on my forehead, the general disturbing nature of my beard, and how gross my desk is, if you can see it. If you were wondering, Funeral filmed this video on my new Canon Powershot SX110 IS)
:O Not bad. Oddly enough, I think your shakiest notes are the ones leading up to the sustained parts rather than the sustained parts themselves. The notes that taper off in the low register are also kind of awkward, but I can completely sympathize with not being able to actually go that low. x| Your emotion is a lot of fun though, and I think that’s the best part of hearing anyone do a cover.
:D many thanks! I’m extremely glad to hear such thorough analytical criticism! And I agree, the lead-ups are shaky, possibly like I am thinking too hard about the big note and letting the others die in set-up. There are also a couple of little screw-ups because I was reading the lyrics while singing and there were a couple of words different from what I’m used to, and they cam out sounding really stressed (“back when we were young, but I had to go” I’ve always heard as “grow”).
I tossed down the gauntlet. You picked it up and delivered quite splendidly so that’s a +1 e-prop or e-rep or whatever the medium of exchange is nowadays.
Like Kiri noticed, the procession to the sustained notes weren’t quite on the mark, but overall, it was an awesome delivery and you’ve silenced any doubt in your ability to sing that excellent piece! The intangible part that I particularly liked is in the passion and energy that you put into the performance, making it a very delightful listen by taking the audience along and allowing them to feel the essence of the song. Excellent work!
That’s fucking awesome :D
Better than I thought it’d be ;p
I look forward to the day everyone from the club band together to do a medley! ( *=‿=*)
This would be made of win.
I’m biding my time, waiting for just the right moment to one-up you.
I’ve already got my comeback for when you do :p and it will be undefeatable
Nice job. I feel like I have no excuses now. :P
Yes, very nice job indeed!
What can I do, to get me to you?
you need to warm up, the second half of the song you did much better than the first.
I agree, and I probably should have done 2 takes rather than publish the first.
Not bad, not bad at all. Songs sung with passion always turn out well.
Cool man! I want to do something myself now.
I look forward to it~~~
Awesome! I can picture you with a guitar at an anime convention…Warm up would definitely help a lot but you actually sang the more difficult parts better than the easier part…sugoi…
lol, it’s because you spend the easy parts preparing for the difficult parts XD
Pretty cool.. I haven’t heard of this song for a long time.. pretty good and brave.. ^_^
I propose you and our own Mori form a duo!
