  • To Little Wolf: Do you know where can I get yung TV Version ng Boy Meets Girl? (Daa Daa Daa) Mind you, I liked the TV version more than its original version--it's more of the 'Para-Para' tempo yung TV version (a la Super Gals!). I like that too!

  • ruri_asagiruri_asagi PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    aishitene motto - tenjho tenge

    re-sublimity - kannaduki no miko (di parin to mawawala sa fave ko! :p)
  • This may be off-topic, but I am hooked on three Love Hina themes: Shinobu Touban no Nisshi, Dame Dame, and Winter Wish. Winter Wish is so darn romantic!
  • Opening Songs:

    Heart of Sword (RK) - naging ringtone ko pa nga ito
    1/2 (RK) - the guitar intro rocks!
    Nanaka Shiawase (FoR) - intro pa lang, "hooked na ako"
    Haruka Kanata (Naruto) - same as above
    Tomorrow (FMP) - almost ANYTHING sung Shimokawa Mikuni is my favorite!
    Tank! (Cowboy Bebop) - It's "Jazz" cool! :lol:
    Bomb A Head! (Tenjou Tenge) - sinubukan ko 'yung sayaw sa opening, but I have two left feet! :laugh:
    *~Asterisk (Bleach) - Get the full version of Orange Range for maximum coolness!

    Ending Songs:

    Egao Ga Sukidakara (Akazukin ChaCha) - one of my earliest favorites
    It's Gonna Rain (RK) - the video helped :)
    1/3 no Junjou wa Kanjou (RK) - all-time fav RK ending!
    Karenai Hana (FMP) - by Shimokawa Mikuni
    Memories (OP 1st ED) - has that "dreamy and wishful" feel to it, appropriate for its title!
    Ice Cream (Narue no Sekai) - probably because it was summer when I watched this series, the melody and flow of this song is indeed like a lovely summer's day
    Mou Sukoshi... Mou Sukoshi... (Midori no Hibi) - I can't think of a more APPROPRIATE song for this series! They hit this one dead on - instant favorite!
    Wind (Naruto) - despite the "Engrish", this song is cool!
    Harmonia (Naruto) - I know, this is a "love it or hate it" song, but I loved the dancing "chibi Sakura and Ino" in the video. It helped me like the song quickly.
    To all Tha' Dreamers (Yakitate 2nd ED) and Thank You (Bleach 2nd ED) - I like retro/disco/70s style music, so these two are my instant favorites, particularly Yakitate's...anybody follow manager's dance steps yet? hehe :glee:

    I know there's a lot more I can't remember, but for now ito muna.

    :cool:
