I got this great CD a couple of months ago to review. It was supposed to be for the zine. The name of the CD is DJ Initial Pâ€™s Anime Love Hardcore 2. We gave a positive review of Anime Love Hardcore, in 2010. I was excited to be able to listen to the new CD.
Anime Love Hardcore 2 has been in my laptopâ€™s drive since I got it in Mid-April. Iâ€™ve listened to it several times, as well as let a few of our fellow staff members check it out.
1 / Lonely In Gorgeous feat. Diana Garnett (Paradise Kiss)
2 / Red Fraction feat. Ani-Rock! (Black Lagoon)
3 / Aozora No Namida feat. Cristina Vee (Blood+)
4 / Renai Circulation feat. Toki (Bakemonogatari)
5 / Just Communication feat. Diana Garnett (Gundam Wing)
6 / Still Doll feat. Cristina Vee (Vampire Knight)
7 / Doraemon No Rumba feat. Reni Mimura (Doraemon)
8 / Ready Steady Go! feat. Ani-Rock! (Fullmetal Alchemist)
9 / Discotheque feat. Cristina Vee (Rosario + Vampire)
10 / Yuzurenai Negai feat. Diana Garnett (Magic Knight Rayearth)
After listening to the CD as many times as I have (at least 20) I decided to listen to the original versions. I must say I am impressed. There was not a single track on Anime Love Hardcore 2 I didn’t look forward to listening to again and again.
I must say any lover of J-Pop and/or happy hardcore will appreciate the album. A couple of the gems on here (in my opinion ) are the 4th opening of Â Bakemonogatari, Renai Circulation (It even got me to check the first few episodes out too) and Still Doll from Vampire Knight.
LikitaRenn:Â I am usually not all that fond of happy hardcore, but DJ Initial P has created some truly catchy tunes that get me hyper! I should start listening to Anime Love Hardcore 2 every time I have stuff that I need to accomplish!Â
Each of the tracks have 45 second samples available to hear atÂ http://www.diskowarp.com/
I give Anime Love Hardcore 2 5/5. I really hope there will be an Anime Love Hardcore 3.
For all those attendingÂ Kumoricon 2012, Initial P will be there on 9/1/2012.
