This is an impromptu post, meaning that I just write what I feel without doublecheck/edit it afterwards, sometimes this kind of post contains wtf element that usually didnt passed director's cut (even I went 'what the hell did I think when I write this' when I re-read it), think of it like a stand up comedy :v read at your own risk
So chuunibyo ost is finally out! as I listened to the EPIC TRACKS, I feel like want to write the impression as I listened to the BGMs. You know that music is one of the most impostant part of storytelling (at least for me), sometimes even beat the visual (Umineko for example). Sometimes reading text with good BGM is enough to achieve the FEEL. Chuuni is anime with strong fantasy feel (you dont say) so the BGMs should be a good chuuni booster type, as you can already her it in the anime. Lets hear them again, this time with more FEEL.
NOTE: you need to download and listen Chuunibyou OST to enjoy this post.
MFW listening to the OST
The original cover, it doesnt looks so chuuni so I edited it
Now that's BETTER
the dream date of chuunibyous
02 Welcome to the Chu-2 byo world! (selamat datang di dunia para pemimpi)
This is kind of like the song played in the title screen of a cutey fun oriented game, like a puzzle game or sims/breeding. There's a new game, load, and option button below the title :v
03 Chuunibyou to wa Nanzo ya (delusi? apaan tuh?)
An eroge-ish track, not saying that its bad thou. Its also sounds like the tutorial part of the game above, its seems so tanoshii! (T/L note: tanoshii means fun)
04 Shinpi no Shoujo to no Deai (perjumpaan dengan gadis misterius)
the "boy meets girl" track, of course it has to got that huuu uuu uu ETHERAL VOICE because EEETS DESTINYYYYY, DIVINE PROPHETIC FATED ENCOUNTER dst, too bad you dont hear this kind of huu huuu huuu voice when you meet a girl that will become your lover in the future IRL huh? thats why CHUUNIBYOU exist :v (y)
btw I'm gonna skip others track that Im lazy to write and focusing to what I REALLY SUPER DUPER like instead :v
06 Cute and chu-2 byo (manis dan pemimpi, well that sounds like the type of girl I'd love to date, tergantung level chuuni nya ding :v)
for some reason I thought that I'm listening to Kimikiss OST :vc
oh drama anime, what would my life become without you?
08 Chu-2 byo is cool! (delusi itu indah :v)
Your first mission is to eliminate all the (weak) enemy in the map
Stage One. Ready?
..if this were a mecha/sci-fi game, this would be the most fitting song :v
10 The Dark Hero (Pahlawan Kegelapan)
UWOOOO! THIS IS IT!! YAMI NO
UGOMEKU CHIKARA IN THE NAME OF THE DARK GODDESS OF LILITH OR SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS SO DARK AND ANGSTY AND SO EMO. THIS MUST BE THE MAIN THEME OF OUR HERO! JUST HEAR OF THAT SINISTERLY GLORIOUS MUSIC! SO TRAGIC! DESPAIR! MENCING FORESHADOWING OMINOUS ETC ETC ECT! OHGOD HE MUST HAVE SO DARK AND TROUBLED PAST!!
THIS IS THE SCENE WHERE THE SOOOO DAAAARKK NO CHIKARA OF OUR HERO AWAKEN!! IT COULD BE BECAUSE OF SURPRESSED EMOTION HELD FOR SO LONG (OOOH WATCHOUT WE HAVE A BADASS HERE) OR IT COULD BE BECAUSE HE JUST WENT TRU 180 DEGREE FLIP PLOT TWIST! AND NOW HIS VIEW TO THE WORLD IS COMPLETELY REVERSAL (OOOH SO EDGYYY) OR MAYBE THE PERSON HE LOVE IS DEAD/KILLED, OR STOLEN AWAY *COUGH NTR *COUGH* (WHY DID U DO THIS TO MEEE) OR MAYBE HE GOT BACKSTABBED (THIS WORLD IS FULL OF LIES!!) ANYWAY OUR HERO LOOKS SSSOOO DAAAARK, LONG COAT IS A MUST! WITH DARKER THAN BLACK AURA AND BIG FUCKING SWORD!! HE CAN ALSO CONJURED DARK MAGIC BASED SPELL (WITH NAMES THAT SOUNDS SSSOO WICKED! LIKE BLACKSTARDUSTOFDIAMONDETERNITY OR ONEWINGEDSOMETHINGFABULOUS) HAIR DOWN TO HIS EYES (how did he can see with that kind of bang :v?
because in my chuunibyou days I had a long and straight hair coverig my eyes and it was so damn hard to see the road, I even painted my nails black, uwaaagh screw logic) ALSO, DAT PIANOOOO!!! DAT TRUMPET! STRINGS! THE DRUMS!! BEHOLD! THE DARKNESS YAMI NO CHIKARA! ITS SO KANASHII! THE ZETSUBOU IS AFURERU! DARK FLAME MASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
13 Teitai na Kanjou (Perasaan yang Tak Kunjung Bergerak(?))
This is the track for those remorse/contemplating scene. You know, the one where our hero FALLS IN SO DEEP THOUGHT, expect a LOOOOOOOOONG MONOLOGUE about himself, which eventually lead to questioning the topic of other than himself, you know, DEEP STUFF like life, nature, universe, fate etc etc. This is the scene thatmade you went uwoo this game is SO DEEEPP than telling other people until they're fed up with your fanboyism and told you to go bug someone else :v
14 Yuugure to Yorisou Kanjou (senja dan dekapan)
The usual but always feels touching guitar and piano combo with added glockenspiel for the nostalgia/child like effect
we already heard this kind of track for so many time yet it doesnt feel boring, the skrecthing sounds on the guitar's string also made this kind of track sounds so natural
PROTIP: WORK BEST FOR OSANANAJIMI RELATED SCENE!
15 Kondou no Saki ni Nanika ga Aru no da
for some reason I thought that I'm listening to Kimikiss OST (again)
good job composer, the drama feels is so strong in this OST
17 Kanjou, Sono na wa 'Hiai' (rasa itu bernama "kesedihan")
ooooooooooohh the melanclohic bitter sho saaad piano combo with strings track. GALAU JIKAN ENSUED. Im a sucker for this kind of track, we've already heard this anywhere on many anime ost but it still feels awesome, expect some heart wrenching tear jerking moment, bonus point kalo seiyuu nya dewa yang bisa skill "speaking with that almost crying voice". whyy why whyyyyyyyyyyyy naze doushite doushite dst definitely the scene that I prefer to watch it alone, with earphone
18 Kokoro no Sukima ni Fuan ga Yattekuru (Di Pusat Hati Ini Kegalauan Menghampiri)
An under pressured track. SO GALAUU indeed, its like a mystery theme but it feels more of a why why what should I do situation
19 Sonna Koto mo Aru yo ne (yang kaya gitu juga ada, kan?)
the sarcasm is strong in this tune, its like tragic but funny, its the kind of scene where you're confused whether you should laugh or feel sympathy, if you can make a scene like that then you have a knack to become the king of romantic comedy writer (y)
20 Kitai Shichatte Iindesu (berharap itu tidak salah)
awyeaaa a jazzy track, swing it up, baby
the piano and bass is just awesome, then the guitar kicks in, superb
best for bunkasai preparation scene or when the group gets together to play in weekened (lets meet at the station, ok?)
22 Watashi ni mo Mieru (aku juga bisa melihatnya)
short track that work best for revelation or any kind of epic short moment
the kind that made viewer goes :O
23-24-25 Maou Kourin ~Ichi~ ~Ni~ ~San~ (raja iblis turun ke dunia versi 1, 2, 3)
this is perfect the "title episode" track for fantasy rpg anime lolol
26 Heiwa na Nichijou ga Ichiban no Shiawase (hari-hari yang damai adalah kebahagiaan terbaik)
gitaran akustik JC Staff at its best!
expect curhat scene or some melancholic monologue yang bisa diakhiri (atau diawali) dengan ini :v =3 *sigh..
27 Mousou Dekomori Senritsu ~Hokan~ (Melodi Ilusi Dekomori: Pelengkap(?))
not sure if its evangelion rip off or tribute, but probably the later
PATTERN BLUE!! I REPEAT PATTERN BLUE! (APPAAAA?? PATTERN BLUE?!!) ALL UNITS PLEASE GET READY ON THEIR POSITION! I REPEAT..
POSITIONING THE CANNON SOMETHING ..DST expect a lot of TECHNICAL STUFF being thrown here and there here
And despite its a life threatening situasion but viewer usually get excited looking at this scene (ooooh finally, we can watch the battle *sambil mamam popcorn)
28 Mousou Dekomori Senritsu ~Kakushin~ (Melodi Ilusi Dekomori: Perbaikan (?))
stage ten. ready.
this is the first boss battle stage, please ensure you bring your strongest unit/party, also dont orget to bring the x item/spell ..dst (again, if this were a mecha or scifi related game)
29 Mousou Dekomori Senritsu ~Gattai~ (Melodi Ilusi Dekomori: Gabungan)
fighting againts the boss! since this is the first boss you fight, the music is not that horror, you will win it anyway (note: exception if this is an ATLUS GAME, dammit you ATURUSU!)
30 Soshite Ashita mo Chuunibyou wa Tsuzuku no de Atta (dan esok pun kita kembali bermimpi)
hey, this track sounds like one of those D'cinnamon song, and considering this come from chuuni ost it has chuuni feels beside a romantic image on it, daaaawww *meleleh seperti es krim
CD IS SOO CHUNI LOLOLOL banyak track delusi level dewa di sini
01 Mousou Battle ~Karei Kaishin~ (Pertarungan Ilusi: Keserasian Yang Mengagumkan)
yes, this music feels just like the moment when the hero combined the power (possibly with his love interest!) ITS THE BIRTH OF ATARASHII CHIKARA!!! ZOMG!! IT CANT BE ANY COOLER THAN THAT!
hero (futari): no matter what you blablabla.. you can't beat us/human/whatevs, because we will always blablabla... KURAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! THE FINAL CHIKARA OF FUTARI NO YUME!! *cue to sinar-sinar lebae yang menyilaukan monitor
the evuls thingie: MASAKA.. SONNABANANAAaaaaaaaaaaaaa *terkena sinar-sinar lebae yang menyilaukan terus hancur dan monitor jadi putih :v
viewer: UWOOO awesome! awesome!! TAT9 *jingkrak-jingkrak di depan layar kaya orang gila
welp finally our dark flame mastah becomes not so dark anymore, but who cares, I mean, come on, he gets the girl! this bring hopes to all the monitor no mae ni viewer minna-sama that no matter who you are even if you are so daaaark and EEEEDGY but you can still bang the chick in the end! how joyous! AAAAH SUBARASHIEEEEE *ngelap ingus
02 Mousou Battle ~Catharsis~ (Pertarungan Ilusi: Penyucian Sukma)
KROMPYAAAANGG!!! BOSS battle ensued! klik klik klik ohgod been a long time since I played rpg, miss those days. This is BGM for mid boss battle, you'll know it because it doesnt feel so horror yet the tension is there
03 Mousou Battle ~Seisen~ (Pertarungan Ilusi: Perang Suci)
UWOOOOOO!! T-THIS MUSIC! IT MUST BE THE THEME FOR "THAT ONE" CHARACTER! TURNS OUT OUR DARK HERO IS NOT THE DARKEST CHARACTER, THERE'S ANOTHER CHARACTER THATS MORE ANGSTY AND DAAAAARK. YOU CANT RECRUIT HIM! BUT HE WILL APPEAR IN THE STORY MANY TIMES, YOU WILL CROSS PATH AND MET WITH HIM FROM TIME TO TIME, SOMETIMES HE HELPS YOUR PARTY BUT YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO BATTLE HIM AT SOME POINT! YES, BECAUSE HE IS "THAT ONE" CHARACTER THAT ALWAYS SSSOOOO ALOOOONEEE, UWOOOOOOOOOO HE MUST BE THE KIND OF LONE WOLF GUY WITH THAT SCARS THAT MARKS (ON HIS CHEST/EYES/CHEEK/BACK/HAND/WHATEVS AND "INCURABLE WOUND" IN HIS HEART!!! FANGIRLS, YOU CAN STARTS SCREAMING NOW! AND CONSIDERING THE MAIN HERO IS SOMEONE WITH DARK BASED CHIKARA THEN THE POSITION OF THIS CHARACTER WILL BE FITTING FOR A FALLEN/REBELIOUS ANGEL! UWOOOO SO WIIIIIIIIIIIICKED! ANGEL WITH INCURABLE WOUNDS!! CANT GET ANYMORE EEEEEDGIER THAN THAT
04 Mousou Battle ~Densetsu Shoukan~ (Pertarungan Ilusi: Mahluk Dewa Legenda)
THIS IS IT!! THIS IS IT!! THIS IS EEEETTTT!!! DAT CHOIR!!! DAT OMINOUS LATIN CHANTING WHERE YOU SPENTS HOURS TO GOOGLE THE LYRIC AND ITS ENGLISH TRANSLATION!! IT MUST BE THE FINAL BATTLE!!! BEHOLD THE TRUUEEEE FOOOOOOORMMMMMMM!!
WAIT, WHAAAAAAAAAT? HE IS THE TRUE ANTAGONIST?!!! B-BUT IT CANNOT BE!!! HE DOESNT LOOK THAT EVIL! HE'S JUST THE SECOND CHARACTER, THE KING OF DEMON'S SUBORDINATE! BUT TURNS OUT HE'S THE ONE WHO PLOTS ALL OF THESE ALL ALONG! THE KING OF THE KING OF DEMON/WHATEVER IS ACTUALLY JUST A PLOT DEVICE!! YES, ITS LIKE HOW MATHIAS CRONQVIST BECOMES DRACULA IN CASTLEVANIA! NOW BEHOLD! HE'S GOING TO SPEAK A LOONG AND WINDED TALKS ABOUT SO DEEEEEEEEEPPP AND PHILOSOPHICAL STUFF (PROBABLY TO THE POINT OF QUOTING SOMETHING FROM THE BIBLE) BEFORE THE BATTLE BEGIN! OOOOOOH. EVEN YOU STARTS TO FEEL SYMPATHY FOR HIM. THIS IS WHY ANIME/MANGA/GAME IS NOT FOR KIDS, IT COULD BRAINWASH YOU THE WITH GREY AND GRAY MORALITY, AFTERALL THE BEST VILLAIN IS THE ONE WHO CAL PULL EMPATHY FROM THE AUDIENCE. REALLY, HE DOESNT DESERVES THIS. HE'S JUST MISUNDERSTOOD (ZOMG!) YOU ACTUALLY DONT WANNA MESS WITH THIS GUY. BUT YOU HAVE TO BEAT HIM ANYWAY! BECAUSE NOW YOU HAVE "THE REASON" , THE CHICK THAT YOU NEED TO MAMORU AND YOUR SO CALLED TOMODACHI/NAKAMA/WHATVES. ITS TIME FOR SETTLE DOWN. LETS FINISH THIS! DARK FLAAAAAAME MASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
05 Surechigau Kokoro to Kokoro (Kerinduan)
ah.. the battle is now over.. cue to the drizzling rain and the ray of the sun comes out from the clouds
now its time for every character to say some heartwarming lines
oooh look! even our dark hero is blushing! daaaawww
THIS IS IT! THIS MUST BE THE CONFESSION SCENE!!
GO TELL HER, YOU BAKA! said the second girl. aaawww that was so bitter sweet. poor her, but thats how life rolls.
06 Atatakasa ni Tsutsumarete Hi wa Kureru (Hari yang Terselimuti Kehangatan Ini Akan Berakhir)
everyone has finished saying their lines, now its the scene for our hero and his beloved
oooh how heartwarming, its sooooo cheeeeeesy but nobody care anyway
finally, we come to the scene everyone was waiting for, the kissing scene
..and thats the story of our hero, darkflame mastah.
07 Hajimare no Tane (Benih Permulaan)
Hooh, a nice song.. with piano and w-wait! UWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! IT HAS A VOCAL TOO!! THIS MUST BE THE ENDING SONG! CUE TO EPILOGUES SCENES IN LITTLE BOX ON BLACK SCREEN WHERE THE CREDIT ROLLS BESIDE IT! expect the "where are they now" scenes thrown here and there. UWOOO! HOW TOUCHING!! W-WHAT IS THIS WARM THINGS IN MY CHEEK?
08 Fukashi Kyoukaisen wo Sagashite (Mencari Cakrawala yang Tak Terlihat)
the ethereal horizon theme, this is the music played in the DISC 2 dungeon (the upper world one) :v
10 Kimi no Tonari ni (Di Sisimu)
and here we got a nice jpop song which boost the atmosphere, perfect for post epilogue (if there's such word for it)
12 Kanashiki Mousou Battle (Pertarungan Ilusi Kesedihan)
wait, what, what is this? another SOO SAAAD AND SO DAAARK music!! another battle theme?! could this be.. masaka.. the EX DUNGEON?!!!11
wait wait what I thought its all over? turns out its not over yet! there's a quest that you can take after you completed the game. Quick! LOAD YOUR LATEST SAVE DATA FROM THE LAST SAVE POINT! YES, THE ONE IN THE LAST DUNGEON BEFORE FIGHTING THE FINAL BOSS! but this time, instead of fighting the boss, go back to the world map, there will be a new area opened! go there! obviously the enemies on the EX DUNGEON is waaay more powerful, and the stories, UWOOOOOOHH ITS SOOO EEEEDGY WHY DO ALL THE STORIES IN THIS GAME ARE SSOO DAAARK ANYWAY? after celaring the ex dungeon you can get the MOST SUPER BROKEN POWERFUL WEAPON THAT CAN KILL THE FINAL BOSS IN ONE TURNLOL
And track 16-18 are actually the KILLER TRACKS, terutama track 18 yang sangat CLIMAX SUGIRUU, tapi chuunibyou mode saya sudah habis, srsly this OST is just too awesome bahkan ENERGY CHUUNIBYOU saya sudah habis buat mereview sebelum semua track tercover, I thought the climax track is around track 7 with insert songs (NOT ONE BUT TWO SONGS!) orz this is like premature chuuniculation. Track 19 is the BOSS battle for EX DUNGEON (hardcoar raawk). And then there is track 23-24, the piano version of OP and ED song (they even make a piano arr!! the ED song that I didnt like it so much suddenly becomes soooo awesome), even the eyecatch has SIX VERSIONS! and two of them are so chuuni; the romantic and the utsukushisaa~ version. Dammit kyonani its like haruhi all over again, but this one is more, if I have to find the correct word to it, hmm ..mature? oh man, Im such a sucker when it comes to grandiose drama. Haruhi is like, the world revolves around her. And chuunibyou is more like, turns out the world doesnt revolve around her, but she's still special anyway.
Well thats all for my review, Whew, panjang juga jadinya, these all are pure impromptu. I write these while listening to the OST, talk about impulse. Since its too long for FB post (and I prefer blog over FB notes), I decide to post it here. See ya on the next post, GLORY TO CHUUNIBROS!!
