Back-on’s TV Size mp3s for Air Gear, Murder Princess and Eyeshield 21

I read somewhere that it’s good for sites to do summary posts sometimes, and although I’ve been tempted to try it several times, it’s taken me a while to think of a good summary theme to post about!

This is actually sort of in-conjunction with Sowon‘s Back-on Music Competition on the Forums, where each time, participants have to sing one particular song (TV size version) from Back-on‘s repetoire. (Please consider entering the competition, minna! :D) Usually, it does help to ‘record’ with the song in question playing in the background, which brings me to the main topic:

where can I find TV size mp3s of Back-on‘s songs?

It would probably be helpful to first provide a list of the songs, so without further ado in the order of Anime Title | Type | Song Title :

Anime Title Type Song Title
Air Gear OP Chain
Murder Princess (OVA) OP ヒカリサスホウ Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.)
Eyeshield 21 OP BLAZE LINE
Eyeshield 21 ED a day dreaming…

Aside from Chain, most of the mp3s are available for download somewhere on Back-on Online, and since this is a summary post, you can find the direct-links to the posts in question below:

But where can you find Chain? This only happens to be one of the most popular Back-on songs ever. The answer is simple: visit Japtard.com. Or more specifically,

view the post Air Gear OST – What a Groovy Trick!

You can the entire OST available for download (at 320kbps) – either as a zip file, or individual mp3 files. Chain (TV Size) is the first song on the 34-track album. The download has kindly been provided by Frox, who has credited Nipponsei for the original release.

Hopefully this post will be helpful to those searching for ‘that’ opening/ending theme by Back-on. Almost every single one so far also has their corresponding lyrics posted on the site somewhere, so take a look at the Lyrics section if you’re interested, particularly if you’d like to participate in the competition!

A first glance at Back-on’s songs from the”Survive” album compilation – Hikari Sasuhou and Grab

The recent influx of comments on the Music page about the newly featured songs on the RadioGrab and Hikari Sasuhou - have been quite surprising! I had never realised that quite that many people paid attention to the changes (for the Radio) before, so it was a very happy discovery! :)

I thought I’d write abit more about these songs, since it’s hard to explain everything on the Music page itself! You may have read a previous post about recent updates to Back-on‘s Discography, and details about a CD compilation – Survive – were added, in which Back-on contributes 3 songs:
Survive

  1. NUTS TRIBE
  2. ヒカリサスホウ (Hikari Sasuhou)
  3. GRAB

The CD compilation was released on June 8th 2005 with songs from Back-on, Airstrike and , and some fans will already know that both Nuts Tribe and ヒカリサスホウ (Hikari Sasuhou) are songs available from Baby Rock and New World.

BACK-ON – Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ (FK Metal ver.) [Murder Princess OVA OP version] | Lyrics and Translation

The lyrics come courtesy of Yakhobian of the Crystal Nova fansub group, who also kindly shared his recording of the OP from Murder Princess OVA. His fansub group, Crystal Nova, have just released their versions of Murder Princess OVA – Volume 1-4, and they’ve done an excellent job translating the episodes imho, so I would highly recommend downloading their work!

You can find the torrent files from the Crystal Nova Forums and having downloaded the file myself, I can definitely say that the quality of the video is very good. There are two file sizes available – 200mb and 116mb. Yakhobian recommends using CCCP to watch the files as it supports the SSA/AAS subtitling format used by the group for their .mkv files.

The lyrics for the OP were translated based on the original Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ lyrics so I’m sure they’re as accurate as can be without the band’s official release. Yakhobian has kindly provided Back-on Online with the original kanji, romaji and also the English translation. You can find all 3 on this page, the kanji on page 2, romaji on page 3 and the English translation on page 4.

New Lyrics – Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ

Today heralds the release of the lyrics for Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ! It seems lot of people have been looking for these, especially since the release of the Murder Princess OVA. Although the lyrics are slightly different from the Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) as Back-on appear to have ‘mashed’ the lyrics from two different verses and added a bit more, hopefully it will still help others!

I spent most of yesterday trying to figure out how to type in Japanese, as well as reference Kanji. This particular release is a result of that hard work, so please do not re-post these lyrics elsewhere without prior permission. The lyrics come in the original Kanji format as well as the usual Hiragana and Romaji.

I have tried to pick up as many errors as possible but if you spot anything amiss please let me know! If you like the release, please do make a comment to show your appreciation :) I’m going to continue working on more Back-on lyrics over the next few days so watch this space!

Remember you can download and listen to both Hikari Sasuhou and Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) in the Music section of Back-on Online before the next section update. I’m happy to say that at the moment, Chain has been downloaded 60 times, but Hikari Sasuhou has been the clear favourite at a whopping 112 downloads!

Glow in the dark but still in the dark, can you see the light in the rhythm
It’s like an illusion, you create the vision, you prove with action, never think of rejection
Nobody knows I gotta know where do I go for the answers I don’t know

About this entry



“Colours” will not be the third track in the BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming… single

There was some speculation (on my part) that Colours – the new theme song for the TV show Tokyo Mayokara! (Tokyoマヨカラ!) might feature as the third song in the forthcoming single release, BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…, due out on June 6th 2007. However, Back-on have announced on their blog that the song won’t be part of that single.

※6月6日発売のシングルには「Colours」は収録されません。

I haven’t heard the song yet, but I’m a little sad to find that its not included for June 6th 2007… which makes one wonder if it will be the full length Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ (FK Metal ver.)? What do you all think?

On another note, I obviously mis-read the news before… but on second viewing it seems much clearer now: Back-on‘s very own Icchan will be presenting a special event on May 10th 2007 focusing on on their (forthcoming) trip to America, entitled “アメリカ帰国ライブ” or literally “America returning home Live“. The event will be held at Shibuya Ruido K2 who haven’t yet updated their listings for May so hopefully we’ll find out more information closer to the time!




Hikari Sasuhou lyrics ‘scan’ and also lyrics for Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.)

Wow… I can’t believe I’ve allowed this much time to lapse since my last news post! It makes me feel guilty just thinking about it :) Real life has been extra busy these past few days but with the Easter holidays here, more time can be allocated toward Back-on Online. Now, moving swiftly on from my (irrelevant) life chat:

I promised to scan the New World album sleeve not too long ago, but on the day I actually really go and try it, I can’t actually get hold of a scanner! Instead, I’ve done an ad-hoc photo-shoot for the time being :p Since I want to tell everyone about Sowon‘s forum post, this seems like a good opportunity to share the Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ lyrics (or photo at least) with everyone! Click on the thumbnail below to load the full image in a new window!

Moving on to the lyrics of Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver. )Sowon, Back-on Online’s very own Forum Super-moderator, has posted lyrics for the Murder Princess opening theme, as translated by Ayako Fansubs. You can view a small sample below, but click on ‘more lyrics‘ to view the post in full:

same ta kao shi tei tatte
> the coldness of your voice
hajime kara bokau wa wakatte i ta kedo
> it is the start of my understanding
kotoba to auraharari
> It is the words of the aura
igan deita
> which is not strained
kono omoi wo kesshite kureyou
> This throughts is never what I ask for

Hope this (slightly delayed) but interesting post has added to your day! :D In case you weren’t aware of it already, Back-on Online now hosts the first dedicated Back-on Forums. Credit for the idea goes to Sowon, our new staff Forum Super-moderator, who emailed in with the suggestion and is now doing alot of ‘behind-the-scenes’ work to improve the user experience! Our next site-updates post will collate all of the recent site changes so do look out for it :)


About this entry



Murder Princess OVA Volume 1 Goodies aka. torrent and mp3 download!

Since the last news post about the Murder Princess OVA (Volume 1) being available in 3 parts on Youtube, like others – I discovered a torrent of the dvd on Tokyo Toshokan courtesy of Quantum Raws. The full file name and direct info link of the torrent can be found below:

[Q-R] OVA Murder Princess Vol.​1 + NC OPED + CM (DVD XviD 768×432 24fps AC3).​mkv

The file itself is about 410 mbs in size, and has a healthy number of seeders at the moment. If you’re not familiar with torrenting, its a fantastic way for people to share large file sizes. There are some good guides on the net about torrents, such as MattK’s recent explanation – but essentially (for me) they are just information files which contain data to help source the original files for you.

As MattK also recommended, the best way (in my opinion) of utilising these .torrent files is to use µTorrent. Its both lightweight (doesn’t kill your pc/laptop’s memory) and intuitive, and you don’t need to install it.

Run µTorrent.exe after you download the .torrent file from Tokyo Toshokan, and then click on the icon on the top left (a green plus on a file paper) and find the file. Its pretty straight forward from then on. To play the .mkv file, I suggest using VLC Media Player, which plays almost anything you care to throw at it.

Now, moving on from the awful attempt at explaining tech things above, I can safely say that this one will give alot more people joy! Although I did manage to record a better version of ヒカリサスホウ Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) from this torrent file, it still doesn’t compare to the one kindly sent in to me by Yakhobian.

He has uploaded his recording (2.45mbs) on Rapidshare, and you can find the link to the file download directly below:

Back-on – Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) recorded by Yakhobian

A big thanks to Yakhobian! :) I believe the lyrics have changed slightly from the original Hikari Sasuhou but I will post more about this at a later date.

p/s: This will be the first mention of the first dedicated Back-on forum for fans, an idea brought to you courtesy of Sowon, who has kindly agreed to fill the position of super moderator. Visit the forums at http://www.backon-online.com/forums/




Watch Murder Princess OVA DVD Volume 1 (Raw) on Youtube!

The user darkusagi has uploaded the first DVD (raw) in 3 parts on Youtube! Although he/she wasn’t the first, as EvilSefirotMK uploaded one part first, darkusagi has gone the extra mile by uploading all parts, and also providing a clean version of the opening and ending credits. I’ve decided to include the videos later in the post (you’ll have to click on Read more…) but in the meantime…

The opening credits (as mentioned before) features ヒカリサスホウ Hikari Sasuhou (FK Metal ver.) – an alternative version of Hikari Sasuhou first heard in the trailer clip. It is approximately 1:30 min long and is really worth listening to in my opinion – I especially love the rap! I’ve managed to record it from the Youtube videos and have decided to post it on the radio for you to listen to as well! I apologise for the bad quality (a result of the original recording and the subsequent compressing), but please let me know what you think of the ‘new’ Hikari Sasuhou! :)
