Song Challenge Day 25: Acoustic song

“An acoustic song you love”

How about four? I just happened to find this medley around the time I needed to decide what song to use here. It’s JAM Project, unplugged and playing the instruments themselves. The songs are “Fire Wars” (Mazinkaiser), “Nageki no Rosario” (Gravion), “STORM” (Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo), and “DRAGON” (New Getter Robo).

And it’s only fitting that great anime should have great openings. Here’s the first one, Kanjite Knight by Ultimate Lazy for Mazinger. I cannot get this song out of my head.

Awesome Music Thursday: HEATS

Yeah, I already did Studio Megaane’s version of the song in this video, but here’s the original song, featured in what I’d consider a candidate for the best anime music video ever.

Both the song (HEATS) and the animation are from Getter Robo Armageddon, also known as Shin Getter Robo – Sekai Saigo no Hi (The Last Day of the World). The singer is Hironobu Kageyama, also known for the first Dragon Ball Z opening, Cha-La Head-Cha-La, and for being a founding member of JAM Project.
