    Cool versions of anime songs?

    If memory serves, we have a favorite OP/ED thread around somewhere...but what I was thinking here was sharing any cool 'alternate' takes, versions, or covers of favorite anime OST tracks (official, fan-made, funny, weird, soothing, sad, whatever).

    For example...this jazzy version of a favorite anime theme of mine. I've played in numerous jazz ensembles over the years (once upon a time, at least), so I generally like the genre, that plus a familiar theme from my youth...well, it's just a super cool fusion of styles, feelings, and memories for me.



    So, anybody else?

    I'm not aware of that opening but that jazz version is catchy. Every now and then I listen to the remix of Melfina's Song by lloydSSJ4 (rest in peace man) which he made back in 2011. There aren't many Outlaw Star remixes out there, but I love this one, especially since the English version of the song is usually overlooked.

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    ^Wow, great shout-out for an old friend and fellow 'outlaw' (sadly, never met the man, but I've seen your tributes Mantis). I hadn't heard his material before...this could be used for an OS Toonami bumper. Seriously.

    Here's another remix I quite like. Sorry, I know, I know, it's Bebop on an OS board, but I gotta' give it up, cuz this one's ACTUALLY good.



    Too bad OS OST doesn't have half as many remixes as Bebop's has had, official or fan-made...the silver lining, I guess, is that Bebop's of course has had some not-so-stellar ones, since there're so dang many lol.

    I'd send Toonami a tweet for the hell of it, but doesn't its Toonami run end very soon? I wouldn't know since I don't have Toonami. That would be an incredible (even if unlikely to happen) tribute though.

    While I do believe Cowboy Bebop overshadowed Outlaw Star far too much (actually, I think "Tank" and its English vocals is a big reason for the show's popularity), I'd never deny that it has a great opening. Nice remix too.

    That's right, folks, I got a few more. Let's see...since I like me some good ol' Tenchi!


    BTW, this YT channel has a whole playlist of 8-bit re-do's from lots of stuff, check it out.

    I think this kinda thing is clever: sure, 8-bit, retro, that's "in" now, pretty easy idea, but going back to do something that's already nostalgic for people on its face (e.g. Tenchi Muyo! songs), but not typically in an 8-bit video-game-esque style (it's not like the ol' Mario theme or something you'd remember sounding like it's on super nintendo), it's like a double dose of nostalgia, because you're lacing something "nostalgic" with "nostalgia" which to a certain generation is anything 8-bit. Like I said, simply clever.

    And for a change of pace...

    This dude rocks, he does tons of covers, here's one of his anime ones I like (in no small part because it's such a great contrast, Sailor Moon x Metal, but it works, it's not just clashing for clashing's sake).

    A while back I found found a singer that collabed with Disarmonia Mundi and did some metalized Ghibli renditions. One of my favorites was Ghibli's short "On Your Mark".

    "(21:31:30) Kokirininja: will she notice the globs of glue....?
    (21:31:56) TheMachetejoe: Nope! I'm as stealthy as a mouse...on bear adrenaline."
    "(18:42:32) Hannah: I like to giggle when I sit in chairs."
    "(19:46:20) lloydSSJ4: I was contemplating my similarities with Fred Luo, while making a sandwhich."

    (23:27:56) Mantis: The whole bloody country.
