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!




BACK-ON – BLAZE LINE (Eyeshield 21 OP version) | Lyrics

These lyrics are taken from the raw version of Episode 104 of Eyeshield 21, courtesy of [l33t-raws]. You can also watch a video of the opening credits or even download the TV-size version of the song.

If you decide to post the lyrics else, please do link back to this page and give us some credit! :)

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.

Tags issue fixed

It was really only a small thing that needed adding – a template by the name of tag.php to the main theme folder; but its puzzled me for the past few days. I regard myself as someone who *can* resolve simple coding issues, but Ultimate Tag Warrior completely baffled me. I’ve never felt so helpless before! Thankfully, Nalin the author of HemingwayEx, the theme that powers Back-on Online, was extremely helpful, and even emailed the actual files, which has helped to resolve this mini-issue of tags not functioning.

It turns out the tags used on this site have already been indexed by search engines, so its important that the tags page works. Even more crucially, many users undoubtedly use tags to find ‘related’ content, particularly at this stage where Lyrics forms the main unique content of this site.

So a big thank you to Nalin for all his help!  More content will be added to the site soon – you may have already noticed that the Q&A already has its first question. I’ve also just noticed a display issue in IE6 at least, where the suckerfish-hover script I’m using acts up. This aesthetic problem will be resolved as soon as I can find a solution. Please don’t forget to vote in our new poll as well!
