Screaming “Otaku!” 01 – Kentaro “Fucking” Miura (click to enlarge)
I spent my whole day watching/listening to NicoNicoDouga videos. I’ve listened to the NicoNicoRyuuseigun like 8 times (it’s 14 minutes long) and I’m trying to learn the lyrics so I can perform it at my next con. In the meantime, none of these are necessarily new, but these are the most awesome things I watched on Nico Nico Douga today. If you have no idea what NicoNico is or how to use it, see my other recent posts on it.
1. Hatsune Miku Cosplayer Performing Nico Nico Ryuuseigun – In the event that I were to marry a woman, this would be exactly what she would be like. As in, she’d be a short girl who cosplays Hatsune Miku and can sing and dance the entire Nico Nico Ryuuseigun. Anyway, this is the best thing ever, and what inspired me to learn all of the lyrics to Ryuuseigun.
2. Girl Playing Base For Miku Song – Speaking of girls who are my type, I like girls and I like the bass guitar, so I always love seeing them put together. Longtime readers (lol) may remember me having sever girl-holding-bass site banners back when I was Euphoric field… and when Euphoric Field had banners. Anyway, here’s some girl and bass, courtesy of OmegaDogma.
3. Chibi Miko Fun Videos – Chibi Miku is back! GOD IT’S SO MOE I MIGHT EXPLODE!!!
4. Vocaloid Band Performance – This is an awesome band performance video and a pretty good song to go with it. Gotta love otaku who love music.
5. Really Awesome Hatsune Miku Performance – This is one of the best Hatsune Miku songs I’ve heard yet. I love the airy vocals and the pretty piano over a fat bass riff.
6. Lucky Star Short Edited Funnies – wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Note: The subs are only there for the first part, don’t worry. Unfortunately, I couldn’t embed the youtube vid because embedding keeps screwing with my feed.
There are certain combination you would never, ever expect to happen, and then they do, and somehow are totally fucking awesome. Strike Witches and Aces High seem like they were practically made for each-other in this video. High-octane action and badass power metal collide in epic ways. I should note, though, I listened to music the whole time I watched Strike Witches so a lot of it was like this for me already haha. Awesome vid, which you can watch on NicoNico Douga if you know how (as was covered in my other Nico posts.)
And yeah, I’m obsessed with Nico Nico Douga. I’ve had the ryuuseigun stuck in my head all day.
For those who missed my last post involving Nico Nico Douga, I’ve recently been addicted to the site many would call ‘otaku youtube.’ In a comment on my last post, Moritheil was kind enough to point out this post on Nico Nico for Dummies, for those of you who don’t know Japanese and want to make an account. You’ll need it, because this video was unfortunately un-findable on youtube (well, I didn’t look that hard), and Nico videos are only viewable with an account and also not imbed-able unless you meet in person with Nico execs (which I guess Sankaku did, the bastards.)
So this video is Idolmaster meets JAM Project. For those who don’t know, Idolmaster is like a rhythm game with dancing pop idols who also happen to all be lolis. It’s a huge thing on Nico Nico, and Berserk manga artist Kentaro Miura recently put his series on hold for 4 months to play Idolmaster (apparently it actually takes that long to beat O-o) If there is one thing that otaku like almost as much as moe, it’s manly epicness, so it’s no surprise that the most epic, manly band around, JAM Project, is featured in a lot of Nico videos. Today, they are the background for Idolmaster awesomeness.
This video is great the whole way through, totally resembling a real JAM Project video whih is awesome, but it really gets great when about a minute’s left and some epic stuff goes down leading to an ending that puts a huge smile on my face. Watch the excellence here if you have a Nico account!
I have pretty much come to realize that Nico Nico Douga is the greatest site ever. After all, manga artist Kentaro Miura has put his 20-years-running halfway-done epic Berserk on hold many times so that he could spend more time on Nico Nico Douga and play Idolmaster games. I suggest you get an account, or find someone who knows Japanese to make you one. It will also greatly help to know at least katakana and hiragana (as I do.) Or, with your account, just hang around the weekly top videos and enjoy. Please get an account. You won’t regret it.
Today, I want to share the most moe thing I’ve seen all month. For those not aware, I am a huge raving lunatic fan of Hatsune Miku, and I love watching her fanmade cg videos. This one is an extremely well-choreographed dance and song called Love&Joy. There are a number of videos with this dance, but this one has a twist – a mini Miku!!! It looks like Miku has a little sister and she’s so damn cute it makes my brain hurt. The end of the video has a little chu~ moment that was so cute I actually blushed. Love it!!!
I proveded a youtube imbed above since I know most people don’t have Nico accounts, but if you do, it’s always the better experience there.
