Now, if your life was an anime...

What would your opening/ending themes be? Keep in mind that a lot of anime change their themes as they continue on, so it's perfectly rational to have more than one. So for me...

stoicism -- Shiina Ringo (it's such a silly song. XD)
TIME SLIP -- L'Arc~en~Ciel
Madrigal -- Malice Mizer
24ko Cylinder -- Dir en grey (well, if I really wanna get moody... Tongue )
Kim deal -- The Pillows
Au Revoir -- Malice Mizer (like Madrigal, really froofy and classical-sounding. Haw.)
Yokan -- Dir en grey

It's the End -- L'Arc~en~Ciel (HAHAHAHA-- *cough* sorry.)
Rinne Highlight -- Shiina Ringo
Love Flies -- L'Arc~en~Ciel (GOD I LOVE THIS SONG.)
Singin' in the Rain -- L'Arc~en~Ciel (can you tell I like Laruku? T_T)
Kissing the Day -- Portishead
Play Dead -- Bjork
Aqua -- Shazna

...Hey, my life'd be a longass anime. :B

Lady Tesser 02-22-2004 06:35 PM
Life as anime ... it'd probably end up being a cross between 'Witch Hunter Robin', 'Big O', and 'Sakura Wars', so themes would be -

"Carry on Dancing" by Savage Garden
"You Can't Judge a Book" by Bo Diddley

"On My Way Home" by Enya
"Going Up the Country" by Canned Heat

Picture hellsing, except instead of killing, it's just yelling passages from the anglican book of common prayer at random people. With a little bit of FLCL thrown in...and elements of the show "father ted".

Infact...I just got an idea. For a movie about a robotic jesuit. FROM THE FUTURE. Who returns to the past, to arm wrestle Ex-Bishop Spong, to become the new archbishop of cantebury. After a hilarious office space style four days, he remembers being a jesuit is really where its at, and following a deathmatch with a robot that looks something like a hodgepodge of canti and a dalek, he returns back to the future...the future being....1923!!!

...I'm sorry, I went off topic there.

Then the opening and ending would alter on an episodic basis, because the lisencing fees would be astronomical. SLAMMIN. (Now dick clark is going to kill me for taking his inane line...I'll be crushed by a GIANT ILLUMINATED BALL)
Black Phoenix 02-22-2004 08:19 PM
Opening: Ending theme from Kikaider. You know, the one that plays while a clip of the big fight between Jiro and his evil brother rolls in the background. I think it would work pretty well as an introduction to the sort of show I have in mind . . .

Ending: Definitely Rain from Cowboy Bebop. That has to be one of the most eerily beautiful songs (and scenes) from any anime I've ever seen, and I've always identified a little too well with the lyrics . . .

Obviously, my anime will not be cheery and uplifting . . . heh . . .
TDF Studios 02-22-2004 08:50 PM
I'd just have FLCL music playing in the background my entire life... That would be pretty cool...
Trotsky 02-22-2004 08:53 PM
my life is a lot like sienfled. so much to a point that i wrote a script to something my firends called "Not Seinfled" and it's all based of real events that happend to me. and works perfictley as an epp of seinfled. dispite the fact it's my life.

that works for me, to make it into an anime would just be the same thing, with cat girls. and psodocoms.
C.R Foxhound 02-22-2004 11:20 PM
ugh i dunno

it be one of those animes where im this shy, clumsy dude, and i live with like 9 women, who are all catgirls of course and they all want me and my dad is a pervert and my grandpa is a giant panda.

...that would rule... Big Grin Big Grin



Probably "My United States of Whatever"

ehh i dunno, some really cool j-pop song

If I was in an Anime, it would probably be Created by Masakazu Katsura. I"d probably be in the middle of a love triangle ('cause all of his stories are like that) But I'd have cool spiky hair, and be surrounded by cute girls. Oh, and then there is the whacky Hijinks! And occasional Action sequence. (Like me having to save one of the girls from a mugger or something)

And in the end, I'd of course end up with the Female lead, and not the other girl. 'cause that's how all of his stories end Tongue

The theme would probably Track one off of Speena's "So much more!" album (Not reading japanese prevents me from knowing the title) and the ending theme would probably be by Yellow Monkey.

A little off topic? maybe. but it was fun writing it Laughing
Stampede 02-23-2004 01:47 AM
Theme? Screw just having a theme. I'd tack the entire opening video from MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries on as my intro. And my outro (yes, I know that's not the right term, but I like to say outro) would have to be... the fast-tempo battle music from FFT. I know it doesn't make sense to you. But it does to me.

I like this song actually.

Of the top of my head, I got...
Opening Theme: Rise (Yoko Kanno/Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG)

Ending Theme: The Real Folk Blues (Yoko Kanno/Cowboy Bebop)

Other themes would be like "Every Heart" (InuYasha), "Living in the Shell" (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG), "I Do" (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG), "Rewrite" (FullMetal Alchemist) and randomly "Just A Moment" (Nas). Gotta have my rap fix in here apparently.

EDIT: Someone please move this to the Ailesberry Farm. Kthxbye.
