    Am I the only one who absolutely despises her repetitive "dance" style?

    Same here. She's overdone that already.

    Serious question, what kind of other movements do you expect her to use when her arms are essentially tied?

    ZERO talent...? I think your sound card (or headphones) is broken.

    According to wikipedia, she is super popular and has charted well. I was surprised because this is the first time I've heard of her.

    She only became popular via Youtube, and recently managed to release her first widely distribute album. Just an artist starting off really. This is the first site I've ever heard anyone saying anything bad about her though.

    With her Link cosplay and carefree attitude, I had expected her to be better received here. But people seem almost irrationally defensive in some way, or otherwise just really friggin bitter and quick to hate. >_>

    Shouldn't wouldn't be so bad, if it weren't for her stupid fucking "dancing" it's the same shit everytime, *tip toe forward, move hips backward, do a kick, turn to the side* "Yay I'm dancing."

    For the first time, a Genji version is far better that the Vocaloid version. I LOVE THIS WOMAN! Fuck all you haters of Lindsey Sterling!

    I bet if the exact same cover was done in the exact same style with the exact same dance except there was a super kawaii japanese schoolgirl uguuu doing it, you guys would be ranting about how it was the best and greatest thing ever. Weebs are hilarious.

    Ishikawa Ayako is someone who played anime songs/vocaloid better than her.

    Is Sankaku going to do an article about Youtube taking down tons of Japanese music videos?

    Wow, very talented violinist, music wise 3D=2d or 3D>2d; that said, had a very hard time watching that clip, had to have it on another tab. Scary as heck. This coming from someone who just ate chili n medium-raw steak whilst watching unedited Goto Kenji's unfortunate sad end.

    True that.

    I didn't like Lindsey's cover. I didn't like the song and she pissed me off lol, the dance was dumb and I don't know what it is about her face in it, but it had the beiber effect on me, Instant hate.

    I think the reason it failed to me was she tried to make the song something it wasn't. She added to much shit on certain parts and it messed up I guess you could say the flow of the song. It also just didn't feel the same. :\ too much tampering.

    go youtube violin covers and you can easily find people less well known and who did a much better job.

    oh well, theres many other people that do covers on the net that I enjoy. :3 just found someone that does good english covers of songs *mind is shocked.*

    Is just that you are a bitter weeb obssesed with Japan and asians in general. You'll get over it eventually, trust me.

    The cover was ok.

    it'S called character dance I believe.
    And I like her violin play, it's better than some of the shit other "stars" of today claim to be music.

    well,if you want real talent,you should check the first place winners of Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition.One of them holds Jacha Heifetz's prized violin.

    Looks like some people came to complain about a good artist who is probably a better person than them.
    ... Well it's true that I'm not a fan of her dancing (though it was nice when she was cosplaying as Link, it was fitting I think)

    Holy shit, what's with all the bitter hate here? That cover was a beautiful rendition of the song, and thought Senbonzakua sounded incredible in violin. It was expressive as a cover piece, not a mere recital, but still kept the feeling of the original.

    I really don't understand how you guys can be so against this. Genuinely stunned.

    (As for the one guy regarding the dance moves, that is a pathetically shallow reason to hate on a piece of music...)

    I hated it because of the prancing, the miming (she's sul tasto half the time in the video because she's concentrating on the prancing and not her bow), and quite frankly the terrible violin playing. A totally unimaginative, repetitive rendition full of off-notes. And yes I do play the violin and have professional music qualifications.

    Nothing wrong with that.
    Most poeple in the media are leeching of something popular. And she is one of the few who actually have some talent.

    Haven't watched a video of her in ages and came here just to see if her performance was still all dancing added to boring violion+shitty synth.
    And it still is.
