Kannagi 10

Kannagi

No. This is not Lucky Star.

Kannagi
I DID SAY THIS ISN’T LUCKY STAR DIDN’T I?!!

Right. So we have the karaoke episode. With Yamakan directing this, you seriously can’t NOT expect to have him not do a karaoke episode seeing as how much he made waves with Lucky Star using this technique. So, err.. let’s begin Kannagi Idol!

Kannagi
But before we begin…. KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIII WA DARE TO SUWATTERUUU! ATASHI SORETOMO ANO KOOOO?!! (SORRY BUT I COULDN’T RESIST DAMMIT!)

Kannagi

Song title: 「イチバンボシ」 (Ichibanboshi)
Lyrics:Yamamoto Yutaka   Composer:Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Aoba Tsugumi

Ahem, so first up on the chopping block is Tsugumi. She.. well.. okay fine, she kinda sucked. It wasn’t too horrible, but it sucked. Still A+ for effort. Next!

Kannagi
Oops, random Zange hijack. Again, next!

Kannagi

Song title: 「I believe you forever」
Lyrics:Hideyuki Kurata   Composer: Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Hibiki Daitetsu

Daitetsu, oh Daitetsu. This guy is a GENIUS. He sang so unbelievably well, ON HIS FIRST TIME AT THAT, that poor Jin got traumatized and ran to the toilet. Some people are just blessed by the god aren’t they?

Kannagi

Song title: 「君とランナウェイ」 (Kimi to RANNAWEII)
Lyrics:Hideyuki Kurata   Composer: Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Akiba Jun

Akiba did pretty well too, and it’s apparently an anison (whaddya expect!) too so he’s pretty comfortable at it. I’m pretty sure they’re parodying some title or such with this song, but I don’t really know for sure. He mentions it’s the theme for an old OVA “Chaos Blade”. Is he referencing Chaos;Head?

Kannagi

Song title: 「アモーレ青春」 (Amore Seishun)
Lyrics:Takanashi Eri   Composer: Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Mikuriya Jin

Jin… just fails. I think the reaction by the rest says it all.

Kannagi
j1mone’s worst fears came true. Look at Takako’s expression! Next!

Kannagi

Song title: 「ハロー大豆の歌」 (HAROO Daizu no Uta)
Lyrics:Takanashi Eri   Composer: Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Nagi

We have Nagi. Honestly, it was good, but I’m in agreement with the others on their reaction to her song.

Kannagi
AWESOME CM SONG IS AWESOME!!!!! つぎ!!

Kannagi

Song title: 「純♥愛・ジェネレーション」 (Jun♥Ai Generation)
Lyrics:Takanashi Eri   Composer: Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Kimura Takako.

Kannagi
HOLY SHIT I SHAT BRICKS. I FUCKING SHAT BRICKS.

Kannagi
I gotta say. Takako is GOOD. FUCKING GOOD. THERE IS NOTHING きもい ABOUT HER! SHE WINS! WINSSSSS!

Kannagi

Song title: 「Delicateにラブ・ミー・プリーズ」 (Delicate ni RABU MII PURIIZU)
Lyrics:Yamamoto Yutaka   Composer:Satoru Kōsaki  Performer: Zange.

And finally we have Zange-chan singing. We also have our winner for the worst singing performance in this episode. Admittedly, I never did expect Hanazawa Kana to be able to sing properly, but goddammit she’s cute!

If you guys think I’m forgetting something, I didn’t. Yes, Shino never sung. Apparently, when she sings, her eyes open and it’s a bad thing. A very bad thing. Or is it a very good one? I don’t know. I can’t seem to remember what happened when her eyes opened. There’s this gap in my memory of when she did.

Kannagi
The ED illustration this week is done by Takahiro Kimura and Ookouchi RICCA. Kimura’s famous for Code Geass, but I can’t find any info about RICCA.

As for the songs used this episode, they’re all original works in case you haven’t been reading the credits, so we’ll have to wait for the inevitable flood of Kannagi character CD’s. Or if they feel really nice to us fans, I guess they’ll release them all in one CD. I’m personally going betting on the character CD router. Would love to hear the full versions of Daitetsu, Akiba and Takako’s songs.

    Hmmm…. I haven’t seen the episode yet. Did it look like the seiyuus were deliberating singly badly to stay in character or were they just that bad (the ones that turned out bad)?

    … i can’t help but comment (even if i’m generally a lurker) but isn’t Konata a bit too tall?

    Tenryu- She is standing up but then again, this is just a short parody so I don’t think it should be something to think about too much ;P

    this episode is definitely awesome, i think it contributes towards building up of relationships between the different characters while maintaining that unique Kannagi style.

    Wow, Nakahara Mai is starting to sound like Kikuko Inoue’s motherly roles.

    At the rate it’s going, Kannagi’s gonna outdo Lucky Star (in terms of punchlines, that is)
