A- “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis”

Yep, that “Cruel Angel’s Thesis.” Come to think of it, I’ve never heard a visual-kei band do a cover before, yet alone the theme to a groundbreaking anime. KindA amusing.

Blood- “Bathory”

Let’s just get the VK out of the way. There’s no bloodbath here, but it’s still creepy in its own right.

coneru- ウォー・アイ・ニー

Oh coneru sensei, teach us your kung fu moves!


Nothing makes me want to eat Cheetos more than dirty ruffians jumping in the scrap yard.

Macdonald Duck Eclair- “Beep Sweep”

MDE is back after 6 years for more electronic pop chaos. Awesome anime style video.

The Mirraz- “Kanransha ni Noru Kimi ga Yakei ni Terasareteruuchi wa”

Fast and to the point, as always.

wasureranneyo- “ABC starting with C”

A few weeks ago we posted the theme from Kaiji: Hakairoku Hen, Fear and Loathing’s “Chase the Light!” And now we have the end theme by wasureranneyo. Damn, this anime has great music.

Ledy Joe- “Innocence”

This guy is having a really tough time staring into that camera. Well I guess I would too with those creepy birds hiding in the forest.

Frontier Backyard- “Everything”

Light a path. Frontier Backyard does sound a lot like Doping Panda, but it still sparkles.


Rottengraffty adds some disco to their funhouse of metal. Silvery.

MotherMAN- “Peaceland”

A beautiful instrumental track and animated PV,  “Peaceland” is aptly named.
