Filipino Fandub anime ops

5 06 2008

I’m a Filipino, if you all must know. ^^

And I’m proud of being one – although I’m a rabid otaku.

This is Gundam 00’s first op song, Daybreak’s Bell.

And this one’s Ouran’s op song, Sakura Kiss.

Enjoy. I might’ve added Ash Like Snow fandub but the singer wasn’t as good as these two in my opinion. ^^

May I know what your opinions are with these fandubs? Aside from the quality of the singers’ singing, of course.

I’m just a little curious, that’s all so I hope you don’t mind me asking. πŸ™‚

Sure. I know my post wasn’t as detailed as I hoped to make.

Okay, Daybreak’s Bell (Gundam 00). First off, the singer is obviously not as adept as L’Arc en Ciel, which is understandable. The guy could’ve used better equipment to “enhance” the song. I think he over-dramaticized some parts of the song, but it’s okay. I mean, the lyrics really showed the emotions needed to be seen. I’m thinking maybe, the english part of the song could’ve been translated as well.

Well, the second video, Sakura Kiss. Thumbs-up. The voice is quite good and almost identical to original. The first line of the song practically hooks you. If there’s a flaw in this on, it’s that the translation’s too direct or for the lack of better word, only minor alteration in the lyrics. No deep “Tagalog” words were used.

However, these two are fanmade videos and their singers/editors/etc., deserved praise for daring to translate the songs into their own language.
