Welcome to our new blog, Nekomimi Music. For those of you who haven't heard our mumblings and ramblings in the past few weeks, you're probably wondering what this site is about. Well, it's time to end the questions and the vagueness and explain what this is and why it exists.
Why do we exist?
Well, I can't tell you the answers to any questions of existentialism and unversal truth, but I can tell you why this blog exists. We care about anime music - and anime remixes. And since certain other websites do not update as regularly as we'd like, we thought we could do better, and while we're at it, we could talk about things that aren't related to some of those other websites - we can review the latest OSTs, show off chiptunes of anime songs as well as professional rearrangements, post remixes of all sorts (including the kind that doesn't have a capitalized M) and whatever else we feel like adding. In short, this site is meant to be a one-stop visit for anime music news.
Why do you keep saying 'we'?
Simple. There are three of us: me (mDuo13), soc (OverCoat), and red (Redcavalier). We were basically the last active members of Anime Remix, so we decided that we may as well stick together when we made a new site.
What kind of weirdo name is 'Nekomimi Music'?
It's actually kind of a reference to the quirky opening theme from an obscure anime, but it's also a fun theme: "nekomimi" means cat ears, so we can use the cat-ear motif to mark our stuff. I mean, who doesn't like cat ears on anything and everything?
So if this is an anime music site, where's the anime music?
To be honest, we don't want to give it all away at once, so you'll have to keep checking back to get more and more of it. But we can start you off with a little something you may have heard before: the Anime Chipdisk volume 1. This is a little project by OverCoat, Tenemis, Coda, and Noboyuki to take a bunch of your favorite anime themes and re-create them in space-efficient Impulse Tracker chiptune format! The end result is pretty close to what it would sound like if you were watching anime on your Amiga or your NES! We hope you enjoy them!
What's the best way to tip you off about news?
If you've got something you want us to blog about, or if you have a song you want us to host, or whatever, just send it to the gmail box of either "mduo13" or "overcoat". (Hint: they're at gmail.com) A warning, if you're sending us a song, Gmail limits attachments to 2 megs, so you'll have to temporarily host it on YouSendIt or something like that.
That's all for now, folks!
And that concludes the Nekomimi Music Manifesto. Wow, I'm getting sick of typing those M's. Anyway, be sure to check back, because we're going to be posting lots more within the next few weeks, including plenty of songs, some of which you'll have never heard before!
In other news, it's my birthday! I'm 20 now. It's kind of depressing to realize I'm already this old and yet I've accomplished so little with my life. Hopefully that won't be true for long!
