Oni Market #1: Pilot

Since I have not had yet the time to edit more photos for you (and since I still have a week until Ryo comes over), I decided to do a little experimentation with a new sort of entry in the blog. Since I am still undecided as to the final form of this entry, whether it will be a separate page inside the blog, whether there will be a sister-entry to it, I will just leave the content to speak for itself. Here goes then:

Item #1: Ryo Fujimura Single: “Concrete”, Track 1: “You Blow Up the Stars”

Since Ryo Fujimura is coming over next week, I though it would be good to post a sample of his music here. This was uploaded only 3 days ago and I think it’s pretty indicative of the sort of sound he is going for.

Item #2: AciD FLavoR’s “Feeling” in the Hakushaku to Yousei Opening

This is the first AciD FLavoR song I ever heard, unknowingly so, when I watched the first episode of Hakushaku to Yousei (Earl and Fairy). Again, this is pertinent because Ryo is the band’s guitarist and does much of their electronic mixing. By the way, the anime looks really cool so far (Ep 2).

Item #3: AciD FLavoR’s “Enishi”, from the opening of a Japanese RPG which… um… I do not really know and the Kanji is too hard for me.

I believe this is one of the best samples of their music.

Item #4: Dark Schneider

I stumbled across this Visual Kei band during one of my usual late-night internet trollings and they caught my eye (they have a really good color scheme, what can I say?). Digging around, I found two of their songs available for download (here), from their recent single, “Blood Sucker”. Listening to them, the first sounded very interesting, the second not very much so. A little further investigation revealed an interview they gave to JaME, reading which, I came to a startling discovery: the guitarist and drummer are female!!! You might think, “so what?” Well, as far as I have seen, a point stressed in the interview itself, the Visual Kei scene is massively male-dominated (biologically, because as far as appearances go…). Give them a try and tell me what you think…

Gotta get back to work,

  1. […] Even though this post predates Oni Market #1, I actually decided to add it to that category afterwards, after the whole idea started taking […]

  2. Dark Schneider?!? So where is the magic and that bastard narcissist hiding?
    I wonder if they r funs of Bastard ..let me c what r the chances someone came up with that name …….no they r funs ^_^

  3. Oh by the way I just noticed the third entry, I’m not really sure if there is an RPG out like that but the characters and opening are from an anime named Shounen Onmyouji. Twenty-something episodes about the grandson of a great onmyouji(exorcist) who can see and speak to the most terrible spirit of all a white fox-like mononoke. Check it out is is fun, it is fast-paced, great depiction of the era’s culture and great summons. If u r bored of bleach fillers and wanna give something else a shot. check it out Mokku is the cutest demon ever I want something like that as a pet lol.

    Same thoughts about DS, as to the third video, first off thanks for giving me the title. 🙂

    Secondly, I figured out what’s going on: the one I have posted here is indeed the opening from the PS2 game, although there is also a Studio DEEN anime that looks mighty interesting. From what I read on Anime News Network, the anime is based on a novel by Mitsuru Yuuki and then the anime inspired the Kadokawa Shoten Game. You gotta love Japanese theme dissemination across all media! 😀

  5. Yeah u got to love how they come up with something and then give it a shot in every possible media 🙂
