Double Album and Concert review : Kazha


Kazha is a 3-member band from Japan with Kazuha Oda on vocals and bass, Hideki Matsushige on guitar and Masaya Kondo on drums. The drummer who performed at Izumicon was their friend Tatsu, but he still gave an awesome performance. 

Overture
Kazha's first album is pretty cool. It's mixed with Japanese and English lyrics and Kazuha's voice is beautiful. My favorite song on this album is "Unmei ~運命~" because it makes me imagine a fantasy-like setting. Another favorite is "Red" because it sounds so intense at first, but then slows down before picking up again and was awesome to hear live. "Another Day" is a nice song, but doesn't appeal to my ears as much on the album as it did when they performed it.

Pierrot's Rating: 4.5 of 5


Track Listing:
Wake Up
Believe
Unmei ~運命~
I Still Remember
Red
Give it Away
Another Day
Close to you
Breathe Through Your Dreams
Silver White Sunshine


Evolution
First of all, this is my favorite of the two albums. All tracks English, which is great for anyone introducing Kazha's music to friends who may not understand Japanese. It's hard to pick favorites because I love all the songs.  This gets a perfect score from me mostly because of that reason, but I also feel this album was mixed better than Overture was.

Pierrot's Rating: 5 of 5!


Track Listing:
Wake Up II (Wake Me Up)
You Became the Light
Breathe Again
Face Your Fears
Forever Yours
One Hundred Years
Frozen
Break into Pieces
Tomorrow
Blend & Fly


Kazha : Live at Izumicon 2017
It was pretty exciting when the band first came on stage and immediately went into a song. At some point in the first half of the performance, there was a little contest where someone in the audience was randomly chosen to get a special prize. I thought itwas pretty cool since I've never seen anyone do that at a concert before. They performed two covers of American songs, "Sweet Child of Mine" and "Don't Stop Believin'" which were pretty good. I really hope to see Kazha perform again. ^_^

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!
