The Delgados – The Light Before We Land

Recently remembered the intro from an anime I saw once called Gunslinger Girl. I thought the intro was pretty epic sounding and here’s the full version to the song created by The Delgados.

What happens when the creators of Death Note create a series that could be argued as one of the finest works of meta in the manga universe? You get Bakuman, easily one of the most inspiring manga I’ve ever read.

This song is ancient in Japanese years. Considering how many new groups come out every single year and that they go away just as fast. You have to be a pretty spectacular group to have staying power that puts you at over 25 years in the industry.

Watch Sunrise’s Tiger and Bunny on April 2nd

Growing up as an anime fan has been a double edged sword. The good side is that the art style and animation that I love so dearly is finally being noticed as a great medium, the bad side is that we’ve had to deal with some bad stuff over the years like Pokemon (it WAS […]
