Gospel Song

Most of us listen to some well known artist like, Rhiana, Justine Bieber, Bruno Mars and etc. Their songs contains love, friendship and many more. With some cool rhythms that can energize you and make you happy or even sad. But have we ever try to listen to some artist that sing and make songs for God? Those people are called Christian Artist. Since my blog name is "Anime and Random" it means, I can also post other topic even its not about anime.

As a music lover, I always look for some music that has a rare rhythms that's  good to my ear and has a deep meaning that can move your soul. I'm not really a christian since birth that's why back then, I really love listening to rock, metal, emo and screamo music that can bring you into the dark side of your heart. But when I first went to church and receive Jesus Christ as my savior, I begun to fall in love with the melody and rhythm of the christian songs. So in this post, I will introduce to you to some well know Christian artist that surely you will love even though your not a Christian.

Christ Tomilin

Christopher Dwayne or also known as Chris Tomilin is an American Christian artist, worship leader and songwriter. He is originally from Grand Saline, Texas, United States.

He is awarded as a Male Vocalist of the year 2006, 2007, and 2008 at GMA Dove Awards and, he was name as Artist of the Year in 2007.

Chris Tomilin is very a talented artist. His songs is so powerful that will really move your soul. According to some websites and blogs that I have read, his songs has a very big impact to churches not only on America but all over the world. His one of my favorite Christian Artist.

Here is one example of his song.

The title is "Sing, sing, sing". Listening to this song makes you really sing.

And here is another favorite song of mine sang by him.

This song is a very powerful song sang by Chris Tomilin and composed by an Irish band named Bluetree. The song was like a prayer for the nation asking God to protect it from any harm, to give them hope and another chance in building a new nation. I show this video to you all because I first heard this song in the minds of the horrible tragedy in Japan. That's why I always remember Japan whenever I listen to this song. And so, I dedicate this song to the country Japan and to the Philippines. I always ask the lord to guide, protect and blessed them always whenever I listen to this song. Though its specially dedicated to the two country, I also do apply this to other country such as America, Australia and others whenever I remember them. This is really a nice song.


Hillsong were a group of people from Hillsong Church who produce Christian music. They're songs was internationally recognize and now they released over 40 albums since 1992. 

Here is a well known song from them, check it out..

"One way Jesus" a very powerful song made by them. The meaning of the song? Well, the title said it all. 
I always sing this song, always..


The Planetshakers band was an Australian rock and worship band. Their songs was associated with rock and pop genre. Planetshakers was originally a Christian youth movement and grew as international ministry and a large church. 

Here is one of their song. ^^


The song was called "Nothing is impossible". The song is about believing and trusting Lord. That their is nothing impossible through our God. While watching the video, you can see that the guitarist was using a Heritage Cherry Sunburst Gibson Les Paul Standard electric guitar, the one that Yui Hirasawa of anime K-On use.


Migiwa is a Japanese singer and song writer who produce Japanese Christian contemporary music. She have release 5 CD's and done some live mini concert and sometimes, appears in television and radio shows. She won a grand prize in 2007 "Japan Gospel award".

I saw Migiwa while searching some Japanese Christian artist on Youtube. I begun to fall in love with her voice after watching her video. Her voice was so good and even though I'm not good in Nihonggo, listening to her songs makes you know what meaning does she want to tell you.

Here is one of her song.. 

Gary Valenciano

Gary Valenciano or also known as Gary V. is a Filipino singer, composer, actor, producer and a gospel singer song writer. He is a very well known musician and actor in the Philippines.

He won the Awit Awards for "Male Performer" 11 times in 1998. and become UNICEF Philippines first national ambassador.  His songs were very powerful that can really move your soul.

Here is one of his song.

I love this song very much. I always listen to it whenever I'm lost and don't know what to do. Try and listen to this song, it will really help you in your life.

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace was one of the oldest gospel song and one of my favorite. Its a little bit funny because, I just discovered it while watching So-Ra-No-Wo-To. Sometimes, anime can really give you a heavenly message that really comes from God. It has a very powerful meaning and great melody. It think every nations has a version of it. 

 Here is a good version by Christ Tomilin.

Final Comment:
Their are so many Christian Artist nowadays, Asian (Korean, Japanese, Filipino,etc.), American, Australian and etc. They gave us hope, inspiration and love by making songs that came from our God. Why not give it a try listening to them? Surely their songs will gave you what you really need in your life.

K-On! Season 3?

My first post was accidentally deleted and I can't recover it anymore. (Stupid blogger.) Well lets just forget that and continue to talk about this topic.

I'm a K-On! fan since 2009 and until now, every time I re-watch some of its episode, they still makes me smile. I'm writing this article to give you some knowledge and to share my opinion about this issue.

After watching the season 2 ending, most of us felt sad or even cry to the fact that the anime ends here. No more music and no more inspiring cute musician to watch. But when Kakifly announced that he will restart the K-On manga with two separated stories, one with the original HTT band and the other is about the senior year of Azusa, we suddenly break into happiness and hope merge within us for the next season of K-On!.  So the question still remains, "Is their gonna be another season for K-On!?".

Spending my leisured time with nothing to do, I decided to search more about this topic through internet. I want to learn who is the pro and anti K-On! season 3. Why do these people want to have another season of K-On! and what do they want to do or to have for the K-On!!! season 3.

In my research, majority of us K-On fan wants to have another season of K-On, not just because of the animation it brings but, mostly because of the music it provides. While most of us want another season of K-On, some of us were contented on how did K-On end, but at the same time, those people really don't mind having or not having another season of K-On. Its just that, they want it to be more interesting than the other previous K-On season, specially the first season. So to KyoAni, your greatest enemy is none other than the first season of K-On!.. ^^

So if ever theirs another season of K-On, what do fans really want to have?  One hundred percents K-On fans really want is the music. The music made by the HTT group make them stressful free and sometimes it gives them inspiration to play music instruments or even compose songs.

The K-On voice actresses, or seiyuu's were one of the reason why the series become successful. Their voices really blend each other, even if you randomly paired them, they will definitely produce a good song. That's why fans begun predicting and suggesting who will voice the new characters if ever theirs another season of K-On. Some says they want to have Kana Hanazawa or Haruka Tomatsu or Saori Hayami or even Aoi Yuuki to voice over the other characters. They say it must be a well known seiyuu but, some say it must be a new seiyuu to make it more interesting. Well, for me, it doesn't matter as long as it can produce a wonderful song. But, if ever they put Kana Hanazawa and Haruka Tomatsu, I suggest they voice over Ayame Toshida and Sachi Hayashi. Kana-san as Ayame and Haruka as Sachi. It will be like, against their character types. As far as I know Kana-san always play the gentle type characters while Haruka-san play the hyper active one.  Its kinda interesting to see how will they perform those characters beside, they kinda resemble the two of them. Another reason is, I want to see Kana-san play drums. I don't mind if she voice over Sumire the goal is to see her playing drums, that's all.. :D But I still prefer new seiyuus.I want to see and hear them and bloom like the five main characters.

So, in my opinion, K-On !!! season 3 is possible because of some reason. First is because of the merchandise skyrocket it creates. Second is the fact that, K-On is about music. Isn't it boring just reading those sound effects and lyrics without knowing what were the rhythms of the music? Well, to all my fellow K-On fans out their, lets just wait and see what will KyoAni do after the movie and put it into Gods trust. ^^

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. ” 
Proverbs 3:5-6

It will be interesting and awesome if they perform something like this. :D

Even Manny Pacquiao wants K-On!!! season 3. 

Note: I didn't own some of the photos. Their are respectively own by their true owners.. ^^

I just can't take it anymore, they really gone beyond the boundary of being an otaku in being a "CREEPY OTAKU". As you can see, I'm kinda also like a Otaku person but, being like that means you should know your boundary.

The Otaku word has a two meaning. In Japan Otaku means, a person who is obsess in anime, manga and etc, without an end. While in western Otaku means, a person who enjoy anime and manga. Looking at the Japanese meaning of Otaku makes me think that, being called an Otaku in Japan is something not really good to them.

One day, I was just browsing in the net when I saw a this photo. 

Seeing this photo makes me kinda angry to the person whose doing something to Mio. It really creep's me out, even some other people felt that too. All I did was just close the browser, and just told myself that I can't do anything about that because its their life.

What makes me write about this article was because of the behavior of some Japanese Otaku, to some seiyuu or also known as voice actors/actresses. After a few weeks, I was just again, browsing on the net and found a creepy website who has some latest news about the seiyuus. I decided to read some articles just to learn some information about the people who is giving life to our lovable anime characters. I was so shocked that some otaku fans gave 'Death threats' to other seiyuus. To what I have read they just do it because, they feel that they've been betrayed. Knowing something about their favorite Seiyuu's life that they don't want, makes some Japanese Otaku mad and angry that it makes them a "Creepy Insane Otaku". Some other Otaku even crash their CD collection just because of the humor.

It really saddens me to know how other Japanese Otaku acts towards their obsession. Being an Otaku is not a awful thing. Supporting the series by buying merchandises and cheering their seiyuus is not really a bad thing but, doing something that someones life is on the line is different. Seiyuu's are also humans that has their own life. Though I admire the fact that we have different cultures but, as a human, we must also respect each and one of us.  I don't have any grudge towards Japanese Otaku the truth is, I do adore their admiration towards the anime/manga series. Its just that, their admiration becomes so extreme that they become so creepy and insane. All I can say to them is... Have a life..

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. ~ Galatians 5:13

And for my shout out for HTT.

K-On!! Live Event ~ Come With Me!!

Come With me! Is the second live event of anime K-On! Now lets take a little review.. :D

Note: Some photos were taken from vlc media player. While other photos was from other website and its respectfully own by them.

Now,now, look at those lucky people.
 The concert was held last February 20, 2011 at Saitama Super Arena. The estimated number of people who watch was around 30 thousand. While watching the video, you will hear some people shouting, "Akkyo!", "Aki-chan!", "Minako!", "Yocchan", "Hikasa!", "Pikasha!", "Aya-chan", "Ayachi!", "Sugar", "Ricchan!", "Jun-chan!", "Ho-kago Tea Time", "HTT", "Come with Me!" and many more.

And just like the first event, they first introduce all of the main artist who will perform. Aki Toyosaki as Yui Hirasawa, Yoko Hikasa as Mio Akiyama, Satomi Sato as Ritsu Tainaka, Minako Kotobuki as Tsumugi Kotobuki, Ayana Taketatsu as Azusa Nakano, Madoka Yonezawa as Ui Hirasawa, Chika Fujito as Nodoka Manabe, Asami Sanada as Sawako Yamanaka, and the two additional characters, Yoriko Nagata as Jun Suzuki and Yuu Asakawa as Norimi Kawaguchi.

Go! Go! Maniac!

They first sang "GO!GO! Maniac" and "Listen" and crowd was like, "Wah!Woh!". Japanese audience is really incredible. 
After the first performance all the HTT group introduce their selves to the audience.
Aki-san teasing Yoko-san
Well, they were all excited and nervous but, as usual, Yoko-san was the most nervous of them all. 

After a little introduction, the next performance will be their character song. First up, Aki-san. 
Aki-san singing "Oh my Guitar!!"
Yeah, keep pointing up.. I like that.. 
Uchida Toshino and Tom-H@ck

The performance start with the two guitarist playing together. I really love those two guitarist specially Uchida-san, their so amazing. 
The song is very very cute specially when you watch Aki-sans performance. You will feel energized while watching her. A splendid and full of awesome cuteness. Surely you can stop watching and asking for more. Amazing, a very good start... 
Next is Yoko-san.

Yoko-san singing "Seishun Vibration"

Kudou Rei and Tanabe Tashina

Moe-Moe! Kyun! Ahaha, so cute.

Yeah, keep pointing up. ^^
Just like the first performance, its started with a two bassist having a duet. Some other blogs and website who also made a review about this are asking, "Why do they need a two bass player? Considering the fact that you only need a one bassist in a band.". Well, having a two bassist in a band is also possible. The bassist can switch places or can perform a duets depending on what role it will be. You will also notice that the other bassist has a 5-string bass, and has a high pitch compare to the other that has only 4-string bass and has a very low pitch. So it means that, they have different roles. I love it when they did the duets.

Meanwhile in Yoko-sans performance, it turned out good. Even though she's nervous, you wouldn't notice it. Adding tension to the event and listening to her great voice while watching her performance is really entertaining and energizing. A splendid work Yoko-san...
Next is Satomi-san.

Sato-san singing "Drumming Shinning My Life"

Tsuchitaka Yukinori and Ichinose Hisashi

I really love performer who's pointing up, because, its rare.

Just like the two bassist issue that a read on other blogs and websites, this is also the question at the two drummers. And just like my answer about the two bassist issue, it is possible having two drummers in a band. They just have to know where and when they will play. The performance of the two drummer was so.... Amazing. Just like the audience, you will be like, "WOOOHH!!" after watching their duets. And also when you observer the two while Satomi-san is performing, the two was also playing. Yes, right, the song needs two drummer. I was like, "What the heck! AMAZING!!". 

I really, really enjoy her performance. Even thought, she seems nervous, she really pull out a great performance out their.. I'm like,"WOH!!!" after watching it. The performance was like a lightning just passing by leaving a scar. Know what I mean.. ^^ And I really love her outfit, so cool. The song is full jolly, jolly beat so surely, you will enjoy it. A very awesome performance Sato-san. I'll give you a two thumbs up for that... 
Next is Minako-san.

Minako-san singing "Dairy wa Fortessimo"

Komori Shigeo


The performance was really refreshing. Having striked by Sato-sans, you will be healed after hearing Komori-sans piano. Then, realizing that Minako-sans performance was just a bandage to your scar. Do you get me? hehehe.. The scar was still their but now, it has a bandage. All in all, Manako-san performance was so very good. Nice combination of songs. Love it. ^^  And oh! I really love her voice.. Wohu!..
And last but not the least, Aya-san.

Aya-san singing "Over the Starlight"

Uchida Toshino and Tom-H@ck

She's really cute.. ^^

Nya ~.. So... Cute..

In here, Uchida-san and Tom-Hack perform again. A really love how Uchida-san strum's his guitar. It rocks! While getting healed by Minako-sans performance, Aya-san performance makes you feel assurance and cuteness. Adding that "Nya~" in your performance is really really captivating. Nice work! 

So after the five performed their character songs, they pause for a break for the introductions of the other performer.

Yamada Naoko
And the introduction of their director, Yamada Naoko.

Yoko-san making fun of their director. haha! XD

1,2,3 is K-E-I-O-N!!
To announce about the upcoming K-On!! movie. This scene is very funny, you must watch it.. After some chitchat, the director and some of them went off the stage. Then Madoka-san started her character song.

Madoka-san singing "Uki Uki New! My Way!"

Listening and watching to her, you will feel happiness.While looking at her I begun to think, "So, if ever (Note: the "IF EVER") theirs another season of k-on, she will need to practice playing guitar.", just imagining things, hehehe.. Over all, good performance. 

Yoriko-san singing "Junjou Bomber!!"

I really enjoy her performance. Just like in Mio songs, the song is full of lovely low bass sound. A little jumpy, cool and jolly beats so, you will surely enjoy it. Nice performance, good work Yoriko-san,

Chika singing "Jump"

You will see a good performer while watching her. The song is really fun to hear. Well, I can think of anything but, a very good performance. Good work Chika-san. 

After the three performance, there will be a little break and a short video that they will view to the audience. This is the time that they are getting ready to go to the other stage of the arena. 

Aya-san & Yoko-san were holding hands
Seems Aya-chan and Yoko-san were afraid and nervous because of the crowd. 

Yui & Ritsu think its a ring for wrestlers. :D

Wohu! 360 degree of guest! :D The Audience was like, "WOH!!!" when they went out.

Ichigo Partfait ga Tomaranai

The jamming really starts here. They first sang "Ichigo Parfait ga Tomaranai". The stage seems like floating in a ocean of people. Just imagining me, standing on that stage makes me really nervous and frighten. They just play and goof around here. You can also see Aki-san making her Gita a machine gun pointing it to the audience, hahaha!!.

Aki-san helping Yoko-san

Tokimeki Sugar
My favorite picture.
This is one of my favorite part of the event. Its Yoko-sans song so, shes the one singing. But, it seems that theirs something wrong in her headset that makes her lost in rhyme. But then, Aki-san begun to sing to help Yoko-san.. Aww.. After a little bit of singing from Aki-san, Yoko-san made its come back. In this performance, you will see how the HTT members support each other in times of need. It also shows how close they can become, specially Aki-san and Yoko-san. 

Additional Information:
I was fond of listening to some seiyuus radio show (specially the K-On! seiyuus radio shows.) in nico nico dough and youtube (though Im not good at nihonggo, but, I can understand a little bit of it.). Sometimes listen to Aki-san and Yoko-sans radio shows. They have several anime radio shows together and its really, really enjoying listening to it specially the QwajRaji. What I notice about this two was that, they like teasing and copying each other. For example, if Aki-san will say something, Yoko-san will copy her and when Yoko-san will say something, Aki-san will also copy her. They always concurrent whenever they say something out of nowhere and when the two collided, its like theirs a party or something crazy going on over the show because of constantly shouting and laughing. This two was the source of craziness, that's why when you listen to Rajion (K-On! radio show) you will definitely wake up (Well adding Sato-san, Minako-san and Ayana-san who is also as crazy as this two.).  

After "Tokimeki Sugar", they did a little break by playing with the audience.



Honey Sweet tea Time

Well, I don't really, completely, understand Japanese but, hearing the melody of the song makes me understand the meaning of it. Its like telling you, "Hey, how are you? Come seat with me and lets have some tea together.". Really refreshing song. After hearing it, I kinda like to have some tea. hehe..

Gohan ha Okazu

Wohoo!! This song will bring your energy to the next level. Wow, the audience was full of energy and the performers were all fired up after the "Koraa!". After this song, they all went back inside the stage. 

Maddy Candy


Rock an Roll! Yeah! A very good performance from "DEATH DEVIL". But, I'm curious if the drummer on the stage was the one who is playing? Well, it seems like her. hehehe..I don't know. 

Dubbing Session

You must watch this dubbing session, it so funny.

Live Set

Pure Pure Heart


Tenshi ni Fureta yo!
When I first watch the "Tenshi ni Fureta yo!" I can't stop crying. My tears keep flowing while watching the four sing the piece. Up until now, I often watch the video in my cellphone or on my computer. Though I don't cry anymore after watching it 2 times, I still feel the emotion of the four while singing it. A very great piece, and I think it will be good graduation song, hehehe... And Oh! I love the duets, wow, very blend and awesome.
Aww.. Sad but cute.hahaha!

Fuwa Fuwa Time

They really do improve in playing. I love how they play the Pure Pure Heart. Watch it, and you will fell the awesomeness of the five, specially Sato-sans drum beats. Sato-san really show who's the boss using her drums.. ^^ If ever theirs another live event, I think they can play their instruments more accurate and strong and, I wish I can be their too. Keep rocking...hehehe.


NO, Thank you!
My favorite song WOHOO! ENCORE!
Utauyo!! MIRACLE
Aki-san is on fire while performing this. ENCORE!! WOHOO!


Cagayake! GIRLS
How nostalgic. WOHOO! ENCORE!!
Don't Say "lazy"
Yoko-san and Aki-san is on fire while performing this. ENCORE!! WOHOO!!

All I can say is. ENCORE!! ENCORE!! ENCORE!!


Yoko-san found her first target

I love this photo, continue that. 

Yoko-san found her 2nd target.

And there she goes! hahahaha!! 

Love this scene.

Sakuragaoka Girls High School - School Song
Sanada-san is playing the piano. 

Come With me

After some heart warming message from them, they finally sang the final song, "Come With Me". It don't have that much beat than the "Lets Go!" song though but, I enjoy it.

This show is really long but, you will surely love it, specially to K-On! fans out their. Wish they can have another live event and when it happens, I wish I'm their shouting and singing along with them. Keep fighting! Godbless to all of you.. ^^

Yeah ritsu, so play the drums now.. :D
