yozuca* 10th Anniversary Best – enjoy & piece

Here comes the 2 best albums of yozuca, the girl who got famous from DC. I mean, 10 of the 17 songs on “enjoy” and 7 of the 14 songs on “piece” are related to DC after all (by the way, can you recognize all of them without looking up?), I doubt anyone would disagree. Let’s take a look what songs are included on these 2 albums.

Tracklist of “enjoy”:
1. Da Capo -Dai 2 Button no Chikai-
2. Fragment -The heat haze of summer-
3. Sakura Saku Mirai Koi Yume
4. Special Day -Taiyou no Kamisama-
5. Sakurairo no Kisetsu
6. Chering
7. Tatta Hitotsu Dake
8. Kirameku
9. Da Capo II -Asaki Yumemishi Kimi to-
10.Shukufuku no Uta
11.Happy my life -Thank you for everything!!-
12.believe yourself
13.Sakura Kimi ni Emu
14.true love song
15.Sakura Amaneku Sekai
16.love mind
17.Reality awake

Comments for “enjoy”:
1. One of the most famous DC songs, also one of the songs with most potential to go onto my mp3 player (don’t ask me why it’s not on there yet);
2. yozuca version of the very famous Suika song;
3. The, the, the, the, the most famous DC song. If one day yozuca forgets how to sing this song, it must be the end of DC world (which might actually be a good news :P);
6. I believe it should be “Chain Ring”, but I’d go with the pronounciation;
7. This song is on the Edelweiss vocal album we released before, if I remember correctly. It’s not something you would expect from the song title.

Tracklist of “piece”:
1. Natsu no Owari ni…
2. Sakura Saku Mirai Koi Yume acoustic ver.
3. Ai no Hane
4. Akai Ito
5. Dear your mind
6. Hitorigoto
7. Tanpopo no Wataboushi
8. Ai no Tane
9. Kioku no Umi
10.Cloudy
11.Itoshii Hito yo -I want to sing for you-
12.Kienaide…
13.one
14.Da Capo II -Asaki Yumemishi Kimi to- piano ver.

Comments for “piece”:
1. A poetry-like song from Suika. Along with “Natsu ga Kureta Okurimono”, they are my most favorite Suika songs from yozuca. If you haven’t noticed by now, Suika has quite some really nice songs;
2. Accoustic arrangement is like the modern trend. I have to admit most of the times I don’t really like them, but this one impresses me. It’s a pretty interesting arrangement;
7. Believe it or not, this song is from the game “Summer Days” (don’t recognize the game title? *coughniceboatcough*);
9. *watches the boat sails to the sea of memory*.

New additions to mp3 player

Added 5 new songs. You can find them in Download section.

1. Hikari [Chiba Saeko] (thanks to HeisT’s recommendation. I also took the chance to listen to Chiba Saeko’s album “melody”, but nothing else interested me)
2. life [Shimotsuki Haruka] (thanks to Marek’s reminder. Inspring lyrics with a very fitting title.  To sum it up in one sentence: two people walking down the path of hardship together. Both the music and lyrics are written by Shimotsukin herself, by the way)
3. Otome no Policy [Ishida Yoko] (since I watched all the sailormoon episodes, you’d imagine I would like a song or two from the series. This is one of them. She was only 20 at that time when she sang this song, so it’s not the Ishida Yoko you recognize from recent years)
4. Tuxedo Mirage [Mitsuishi Kotono, Tomizawa Michie, Hisakawa Aya, Shinohara Emi, Fukami Rica] (aka Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus. My most favorite sailormoon song. I still remember the ED animation of it has a music box with Usagi (as moon princess) on top of it turning around with a lantern in the background showing various sailor soldiers, then ends with Mamoru (Tuxedo Mask) appearing under a light ray on top of the music box with Usagi. Ah, how nostalgic)
5. Yuukyuu no Tsubasa [Harada Hitomi] (somehow I forgot this one. The ef song,  written by Tenmon)

guuchan – The 155 songs on my mp3 player

After spending a few days hunting down some old songs, finally I have completed the collection. Considering the time I spent to hunt for them, encode them, pondering which ones I should pick and whatnot, you can expect a very long post coming. Ready?

First of all, a couple of notes:

  1. these are “The 155 songs on my mp3 player”, so yes, they are all songs, with vocal. BGMs are not featured in this release;
  2. all the songs were encoded from lossless to 320kbps mp3 myself. A big thanks to Hepka for helping me finding the lossless of “Shizuku”;
  3. all the songs are anime or game songs, or c/w songs from those related albums, or from seiyuu albums;
  4. the criteria of picking the songs: they have to be what I call “rerererelistenable”. There are many, many more good songs out there, but the majority of these 155 songs are HIGHLY relistenable, i.e. they can be looped continuously for a good long while, or you can listen to them multiple times in a short period of time. Of course, provided that you have a similar taste to mine, that is;
  5. there might be a slight exception to above — you will notice there’s a full album among the songs, minus the first track which is a short instrumental introduction. That album is Chiba Saeko’s “everything”. While not every single song on that album meets the criteria (around half of them do though),  the album is still a very good one. Chiba Saeko is properly one of the most underrated seiyuu singers. She’s tall for a Japanese girl, and she doesn’t exactly have a very cute face (even though she doesn’t look bad at all), so she does not have the “moe” factor like Horie Yui. She also doesn’t have amazing vibrato like Mizuki Nana, but trust me, she can sing. Her voice might be soft, but her expression of emotion in her songs are very natural. “Sayonara Solitaire”, anyone?

Now, the tracklist, followed by my comments or related thoughts of some of the songs that I would like to share. It’s going to be a VERY long read, so get yourself a cup of tea/coffee, fire up your favorite BGM music, make yourself comfortable, and start reading on. 🙂

Comments (number corresponds to the one on tracklist. If a certain number doesn’t exist here, it means I have no particular comment about that track):

2.  Kannaduki no Miko, ah. It’s the first show I translated. I loved it, partly because it’s a yuri show featuring my favorite seiyuu Kawasumi Ayako, partly because Himeko is super cute (especially when she bends over/sideway :P), partly because *coughChikaneknowshowtorapeafellowgirlcough*. For the song itself, I only have three words to say: two thumbs up;
3.  OP of “Garden”. I never played the game, but a lovely song nonetheless;
4.  In case you wonder where this song is from, it’s from Nagasarete Airantou. I think it’s played in the last episode, if I remember correctly. Yuinyan has quite a few love songs, but none of them is as cheesy as this one, which makes it special;
6.  Angelic Layer ED2. ED1, “The Starry Sky”, is not bad either, but this one is just classic;
7.  “Kiss Kiss koishiteru yo~“. That’s how simple falling in love is *nod*;
8.  Nope, it’s not Lia’s Aozora. It’s YURIA’s. Anyone remember which show this song is from?
9.  I bet everyone knows this song. It was a super popular show after all;
10. A super addictive song. It was all over Japan’s TV and radio when it came out;
11. As mentioned in a previous post, one of my top 3 Chata songs;
13. A very cute song for summer listening. If you don’t recognize the name Satou Rina, look her up. She is very likely in one of the shows you watched before;
14. Kin-iro no Corda OP. Never watched the show, but the song caught my attention;
15. This song will make you go around and around in circle. It’s not one of the better songs, but a funny one, in a sense;
16. The “label” song of CLANNAD per se;
17. This is an interesting one. The game, with the same title as the song, was… nah, I will leave it to you to look it up yourself if you have never heard of it :P;
18. A higurashi image song. My most favorite (higurashi) one;
19. Kashimashi image song. You don’t usually see Ueda Kana, Horie Yui, and Tamura Yukari singing together. The song itself is pretty nice;
20. Another one of my top 3 Chata songs, from Canvas3. Simple lyrics yet it depicts a very beautiful scene. I still need to translate the lyrics of it sometime;
22. Super GALS! ED. Never watched the show, but totally love the song. Love it, just love it. I can’t imagine another voice singing that song;
23. This is the live version at KSL concert. The normal version doesn’t really appeal to me, but this one is cuteness X 100;
25. Another epic piece of work written by Maeda Jun;
26. A totally different feel from Lia’s version. If Lia’s version is calming, then this one is sad;
27. Umisho OP. A totally cheerful song. If you need a song to light up your day, this is the one;
29. Baldr Bullet OP. Fast beat and noisy song. Normally it’s not my type, but since it’s here, you know there’s something special about it;
30. As the song title suggests, a good one to listen to in summer;
31. Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na game OP. The best song of Yuinyan. Enough said;
32. My second favorite of Full Moon songs;
34. ToHeart OP, how nostalgic. Loved the show, loved the song with the OP animation. Still loving the song, of course. It really makes you feel like you’re back to high school (if you are an old man like me, that is :P);
35. Kanon 2002 anime (Toei) OP. I always like to compare it to “Last regrets” and initiate a discussion about it with my friends on IRC. Personally, I think this one is alot more heartwrenching — it’s like a highly suppressed emotion that has nowhere to go;
36. Okazaki Ritsuko’s most popular song. Who doesn’t love fruits basket?
37. Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu OP. 38 is the original version, this one is sung by Chiba Saeko, who voiced for the show. My most favorite subbing project. If you haven’t watched the show yet, watch it now;
39. Ring, ring. Another summer song from Suika;
41. Laputa, Miyazaki Hayao’s best movie. Please tell me you have watched it;
42. Her arguably best song;
43. Yet another summer song. Relaxing to listen to, yet still upbeat enough for a bright summer day;
44. One of Chiba Saeko’s best upbeat songs, if not the best;
45. From Little Busters. Just close your eyes while listening to it and let your mind flies far, faraway;
46. My no.1 favorite Shimotsukin song, which I bet most of you haven’t heard of before. It takes you into a fairy tale world which you won’t want to leave;
47. I really miss Nakayama Arisa’s singing. Where did she go? 😦
48. This song is the reason why I said “Hajimari no Keshiki” was arguably her best upbeat song;
49. Asatte no Houkou OP. One of the songs that gives you a really nostalgic feel. I recommend you to watch the show if you haven’t yet, by the way;
54. I said above Chiba Saeko is good at expressing her emotion naturally in her singing. This is another example;
55. My wake up song. Nothing is better than starting your day with this one;
56. Who doesn’t like Ice Cream? 😛 The ED animation of the song in Narue no Sekai is my most favorite ED animation by the way. It depicts what “shiawase” is all about;
57. Oh, this one. My most favorite AIR song. Yes, better than Tori no Uta. You can find the lyrics here;
58. My most favorite FJY song. Very impactful;
60. Haha, Fushigi Yuugi. Doesn’t it bring back memories?
61. Okay, this one. It’s Saint Tail ED. Probably my most favorite anime in the 90s. I first watched the anime in dub, then a few years later I rewatched the whole thing in original Japanese. Even though I watched every single episode of Sailormoon that time (yeah I’m not going to deny), I think Saint Tail was the best of that age. I love how they handled the relationship between Meimi and Asuka Jr, in comparison sailormoon’s romance was totally silly;
63. Hocchan’s most emotional song;
64. One of the only 2 songs performed by male singers on this list. That definitely means something;
66. My most favorite FictionJunction song (of all singers);
68. Why would anyone not like this song?
69. Spiral OP. High pitch, super hyper, definitely not my type of song… usually. That should explain;
70. Original/Full version of 41. Again, please watch the movie asap if you haven’t yet;
73. W -Wish- OP. For some reason I like it alot;
74. Candy Boy ED. Simple song but nice;
79. Katakiri’s most passionate song for me. It doesn’t really sound like so, but you should be able to feel it;
81. You should regret by now if you haven’t heard this one before;
82. As epic as Tori no Uta. An upbeat yet sad song (you probably won’t feel the sadness in the song though if you haven’t played the game “Tomoyo After -It’s a Terrible Wonderful Life-“);
84. I bet Nanoha fans will cause havoc if this song is not here;
86. In case you wonder (which I bet you will), this song is from Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro. Putting the game aside, good hentai is good :D;
88. Kurau Phantom Memory ED. Full of mysterious feel;
89. Anyone remember which show this song is from?
90. I actually wasn’t sure if I should include this song. You might get fed up of it after a while, but give it a good break when that happens and you will feel like listening to it again later;
93. My most favorite Full Moon song;
94. It’s from the game/novel “Narcissu -Side 2nd-“.  The 1st game is translated into English, I highly recommend you to play it. If you do, play it in the evening with lights off. No, it’s not a scary story, just that’s the right mood for it;
95. A poetry-like song from Suika;
96. I like this one better than the original version (97);
99. Probably my most favorite Katakiri song;
100.A winter breakup song. Yes, I’m serious;
102.One of my 2 cellphone ringtones. If I have three hands, I will give it three thumbs up. 101 is a different version that you will have to take a while to get used to;
103.Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na anime OP. It’s gentle and caring just like Feena. Chant with me: FEENA SAIKOU!
105.I’m surprised myself that I included this song. For some people it’s an instant hit, but it took me a while for the song to grow on me;
107.The best song of KgNE. Anyone disagrees?
108.Co-written by Revo and Kajiura Yuki. Performed by Revo’s Sound Horizon aka Harem girls. Revo & Kajiura also participated in the song, on both instruments and vocals;
109.The Da Capo song. I thought about “Da Capo -Dai-2 Button no Chikai-” too, but that song is only catchy at the beginning, so; 
110.Chrno Crusade ED. It’s a nobrainer anytime when you name best of best anime songs;
111.Saikano ED. My no.1 /wrist song. Its sadness is incomparable;
114.Moribito OP. The other of the 2 songs performed by male singer;
115.Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro na -Moonlight Cradle- OP. I have to admit I had some prejudice in choosing this song because of FEEEEEEEENA, but it’s a good song nonetheless;
116.GTO anime ED2. A pop-y yet sad with some out-of-nowhere rap in the middle, however everything somehow fits well together to make it into one of my all-time favorite songs;
119.Shana II ED2. VERY addictive song;
120.It’s the c/w song of Yami to Boushi OP single. My most favorite Kayou Aiko song;
121.A higurashi song that doesn’t sound higurashi at all. Putting that aside, I like it;
122.PS2 Yotsunoha OP. A very lovely song from Yuinyan;
125.FMP Fumoffu OP. I don’t think I need to recommend this one. Another excellent song to start your day;
127.This song should be famous enough. 126 is the seiyuu version of it;
128.Koihime Musou game PV song. The other of my 2 cellphone ringtones. It’s too good a song that it’s such a waste to be used just for a PV;
129.My no.1 Chata song <3;
131.Ai Yori Aoshi -Enishi- OP. While Feena is my favorite game girl, Aoi is my favorite anime girl;
133.GUNSLINGER GIRL -IL TEATRINO- OP. Didn’t watch the show (watched the first one though), but great song is great nonetheless;
134.Best TTT song to-date still;
136.Stellvia ED2. A very passionate song;
137.CLANNAD AS OP. Wasn’t really fond of the song at first because I was used to the BGM, but it grew on me;
139.If Laputa is Miyazaki Hayao’s best movie, then Tonari no Totoro is his cutest movie. This song totally reflects it;
140.It’s Tori no Uta. Do I need to say anything?
141.Ai Yori Aoshi OP. It gives you a really warm feeling;
142.A warm winter song from Shimotsukin;
144.It’s the OP of game “Yanedutai no Kimi he”. I bet most of you have never heard of the game. It’s okay though, you don’t need to know the game to like this song. Trance version (143) is a more upbeat version;
145.I think we should all know this song;
146.V.G Neo OP. One of the KOTOKO songs that tends to be overlooked because it’s only included in very few albums;
149.One of Lia’s most overlooked songs. A very encouraging song, even if you don’t understand the lyrics, you should be able to feel it just by the song’s tone;
150.Anyone remember which show this song is from?
151.Animelo 2008 theme song. My most favorite one from Animelo;
153.The legendary higurashi song. Personally I prefer Yukino Satsuk’s over Yuduki’s original version, how about you?
154.Fuyu no Rondo 2nd OP. Simple lyrics, very addictive melody.

Chata – Works Best

The album title should explain it all (but wait, it doesn’t mean I agree with it, at least not completely). Anyway, let’s take a look at the tracklist first:

1. Bravery -Tadoritsukitai Kimi he-
2. BEGIN*
3. Love Rice**
4. Hare→Koigokoro
5. see-saw!!
6. Shirushi^
7. Kuon -Utakata-
8. Shizai Senri -Koihime Yobite Hyakka no Ou to Nasu-
9. Oetsu
10.Yoake Mae
11.Mint Kiss
12.Photograph
13.Takaramono^
14.Yotsunoha***
* PS2 GROW LANCER VI ED. 1 of my top 3 Chata songs
** PS2 Yotsunoha -A journey of sincerity- ED. Really cute song
*** Yotsunoha OP. Yotsunoha has some nice songs, this one is no exception
^ new song

Personally I’m not really fond of the Koihime Musou songs (track 7 and 8), but I don’t dislike them either. Now, if you have noticed, I only noted that “BEGIN” is 1 of my 3 top Chata songs, which means the rest 2 aren’t in this album. One would be “cotton candy”, featured in our recent release Canvas3 -Hakugin no Portrait- Original Soundtrack. It’s a character song so I’m not surprised that it’s not in this album, however I do have a big complaint of “Suiheisen made Nan Mile” not being there. Be it any reason, I just have a huge problem with that. What about “Dango Daikazoku”? Even though it’s not among my top 3, I still like it a lot, and I’m sure it’s the same for many of you. Yeah, maybe because Key Sounds Label owns the right to that song or whatever reason, but without those two songs, this album just doesn’t cut it as “Works Best” to me. It doesn’t mean this album has a bad choice of songs though, nor is the album itself bad; I do recommend it still, just that it’s not quite there.

Edit: I posted the link here before, but for those who missed it, I submitted the romanized and translated lyrics of “Suiheisen made Nan Mile?”, which you can find here.
