FF – Fate Festival (nope, not Final Fantasy)

First of all, Happy New Year everyone! Best wishes for 2010.šŸ™‚

On 12/23, 3 Fate-related CDs were released on the same day, hence this post’s title “Fate Festival” (yeah, I made it up. It’s not a CD/series’ name or anything). We already released the first one, Tainaka Sachi’s “Mariage -tribute to Fate-“, earlier this week. In case you missed it, it’s Tainaka performing various songs from the Fate series, mainly the game ones (except “disillusion”, of which she is the original singer):

Tracklist:
1. disillusion
2. days
3. memory
4. Over The Mountain
5. Sakura Saite
6. hollow
7. Bokutachi no Mirai
8. Ougon no Kagayaki
9. Link
10.Alive

In case you have never heard theĀ original versions or forgot how they sound,Ā here comes theĀ second CD,Ā “Fate/Recapture -original songs collection-“, with the (original) singer’s nameĀ in [ ]:

How do you like 2010 starting with the Fate Festival? Better yet, the festival doesn’t end here. In case you didn’t know already, the F/sn movie, Unlimited Blade Works, will be in theatre later this month on 1/23. Here’s the trailer for you to get hyped for it:

  1. “In case you missed it, itā€™s Tainaka performing various songs from the Fate series, mainly the game ones (except ā€œdisillusionā€, of which she is the original singer)”

    Mmm… not precisely. As you know, disillusion is a cover from the song THIS ILLUSION, the OP from the original game, performed by M.H. The cover have arranges by part of Kenji Kawai and a somewhat different name (the name of the original song and the cover is pronounced in the same way). She isn’t precisely the original singer of that song, but anyway… IMO, she perfoms this song very well. The arrangements of Kawai-san, plus the Sachi’s voice, results in pure win for me.

    OK. That’s all by now. If with this that I said, I offended to someone in someway, apologies by that.

  2. @Lightchild: what I was saying was, Tainaka Sachi was the original singer of “disillusion”. Yes, they are basically the same song, they have the same lyrics and melody, but the feelings are very different. Since they went as far as giving the arrangement a different title, I find it reasonable to state the original singer of “THIS ILLUSION” as M.H., and “disillusion” as Tainaka Sachi.
