Shining CDs

It's strange, we noticed last night, that while this entire week (except for yesterday) has been really laid-back, we haven't played a second of video games. That just won't do at all, especially because we listened to the Shining Tears CD single we got yesterday, and now we have a new game to add to our list. We got the CD because we knew that one of our favorite voice actors, Soichiro Hoshi♥, sang the Shining Tears theme song, and that the single was at the top of the Animate CD rankings for a long time, so we figured it must be good. And now it's our new favorite song♥ Something about Hoshi-san's voice that makes it so we just can't help but smile.

And now, as I type this up, we're listening to our new Gyakuten Meets Orchestra CD, which is also made of pure awesome. Ace Attorney music arranged for orchestra. I cannot describe in words how purely awesome it is to hear the music when Phoenix is finally about to win sounds when played by a full orchestra. Except to say it's pure awesome, but I already said that twice. Maybe what I need is a thesaurus.

We also read an entry in Kazuya Minekura's blog today that reminded us just how much we want to watch Bus Gamer, which was awesome timing, because the DVD of the first episode arrived at our apartment today! We'll be watching it this evening, and it will be in so much better quality than what all you downloaders watched. (Of course I say that knowing full well that the people who did download it could just as easily go download the DVD rip, and also keep in mind that we bear no ill will toward people who do download (as long as they still support the industry); we just like to taunt them occasionally because we're jealous that they got to watch the anime so much sooner.)

Changing the subject back, it makes me sad when I can't identify the music that comes up on this CD. *pout*

I can also see this is going to be a long CD, so I'm wondering if I should just keep rambling here so I have something to do while we listen to it. It feels kind of awkward to just sit and listen without doing anything, y'know?

Edgeworth theme! Eeeeeee♥

I just remembered some other kind of important stuff we could be doing while we listen to this CD, so I think I'm done rambling for now.

Today I'm thankful for Shining Tears (the song; haven't even ordered the game yet), Gyakuten Meets Orchestra, getting to watch Bus Gamer tonight, slightly cooler weather today, and sibling duets.
