Vocaloid track of the Whenever I Feel Like It {S2} 6

[Wish I could just sit back and enjoy the Cherry Blossoms like Miku's doing!!]

Hey guys, hope you're enjoying the weather as it begins to warm up! If I were living in Japan, I'd love to see the sakura blossom... instead I can enjoy great Vocaloid music I guess!

Today's theme: complexity!

"Night before the Sakura" can be summed up in one word: beautiful. Well, maybe also "catharsis." The video is truly a minimalist work, but the song is so powerful and touching... if you feel nothing after seeing this, you're obviously a horrible person! Believe it!

"What do you mean!?" is slightly different, yet strangely similar. It's a complex jumble of human experience typecasted, iconified and shaken, not stirred. Miku is as cute as always, portraying our frenzied mortal balance between Human, Joy, Logic, Cold World, and of course You =]. But someone please explain to me what the sheep is!!

Hatsune Miku - Night Before the Sakura

Hatsune Miku - What Do You Mean?!

As usual, I'm dying to know which one won! Tell us in the comments!

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
