K-ON! Image Songs Top Music Charts at #2 & #3

k-on_mio_yui_image_song_singles.jpg

The two image song singles for K-ON!’s Mio Akiyama and Yui Hirasawa, recently released, have rapidly rocketed to the top of the Oricon national music rankings, grabbing the #2 and #3 spots, respectively.

This follows on the heels of the wild success of the show’s three earlier singles, Cagayake! GIRLS and Don’t say “lazy”, as well as the insert song Fuwa Fuwa Time, all of which danced around the Top 6 at various times over the last 2 months, with the first two even claiming the top 2 spots for a period.

This video shows a not at all unskilled performance of K-ON!’s popular OP theme, Cagayake! GIRLS, by a mysterious figure in Nagato Yuki cosplay.

As is usual with these sorts of videos, the major questions being asked seem to center on the gender of the hapless cosplayer, although with more fervor than is the norm, due to some visual hints…

    Regardless of gender, he/she sure likes to show off his skills by taking some liberties with the song: 1:01-1:12 "solo", 2:04-2:16 finger tapping and obvious 4:03-4:11 finishing shredding are his/her additions to the song. 1:54-2:03... More

Megumi Nakajima Opens Youtube Channel

Megumi Nakajima/Ranka Lee Conquers Nico

Megumi Nakajima, the young seiyuu-singer that made her debut last year as Macross F’s moeful Ranka Lee, has had her own Youtube Channel open yesterday, simultaneously with her 20th birthday.

Given her youth and rookie status (she has only Ranka and Basquash!’s Citron to her name), a personal Youtube Channel, definitely something of a rarity among seiyuu, can be seen as another publicity stunt of sorts, similar to last year’s dancing video on Nico.

Gurren Lagann’s Yoko (and by extension her seiyuu Marina Inoue) have attracted much attention with the launch of Yoko’s career as an idol, starting with the release of her “S.t.a.r.S” single, “Kirameki Yoko – Pieces of Sweet Stars“.

This being Yoko, the whole affair is packed full of sexy oppai shots and a variety of alluring costumes. You can see these in the video below:

Clannad – “To My Beloved” MAD

clannad_itoshii_hito_e.jpg

A beautiful and mournful Clannad MAD is currently sitting on Nico’s Top 3 in the “Anime” chart, “Itoshii Hito E” (To My Beloved).

This MAD is quite different from the frenzied sort we typically show here, much like the previous Toradora Deep Love MAD, so those who are both fans of Clannad and slower videos should find it a treat.
