Music Video: "Show Me the Light" by Lunaspace

Unfortunately, not much is known about this band, Lunaspace, other than they have produced other popular hits such as "Where's the Party? (2006)" I believe the German eurodance label, Beatwerk Records, was their label company. If anyone has a link to their biography, I would definitely appreciate it. Nonetheless, this is a great song I highly recommend. Click on the link below for the lyrics.



Here are the lyrics below:

Calling the dreams of yesterday
In a world so far away
Show me that love is here to stay
Can we find another way
Please take me far away
To the world of yesterday

I'll wait for my dreams to come true
It's another point of view
Turn back time and you'll find
You are always on my mind
You'll be here
And I have no fear
The time is right
Just show me the light
you show me light (you show me light)

Maybe I'm too blind to see
There's no chance for you and me
But you're always in my heart
And I knew it from the start
Just come back to me and stay
We will find another way

I'll wait for my dreams to come true
It's another point of view
Turn back time and you'll find
You are always on my mind
You'll be here
And I have no fear
The time is right
Just show me the light

I'll wait for my dreams to come true
It's another point of view
Turn back time and you'll find
You are always on my mind

I'll wait for my dreams to come true
It's another point of view
Turn back time and you'll find
You are always on my mind
You'll be here
And I have no fear
The time is right
Just show me the light

Just show me the light (You show me the light)

Review: Kannazaki no Miko (2004)

Kannazuki no Miko (~Destiny of the Shrine Maiden~) is a Japanese supernatural anime series about the reincarnations of the Solar and Lunar priestesses as they wage a cosmic battle against an evil god in contemporary Japan. It contains 12 episodes.

Himeko Kurusugawa and Chikane Himemiya are two high school teens attending a prestigious academy in Mahoroba, Japan. When an ancient evil awakens on their birthdays (in Japanese folklore, October means "godless month"), the girls are plunged into their destined roles: defending the world against the eight-headed Yamata no Orochi, an evil god who wishes to destroy the world of humanity and create its own realm.

The first Orochi ("follower of the evil god") who tries to kill to kill the priestess ("miko" in Japanese) is Soma Ogami, who is in love with Himeko. However, he rejects his fate and vows to defend her against the other seven Orochi. Each Orochi has a mecha with superhuman physical strength and endurance, and they eventually become totally evil as they progress in power. Those who resist the curse receive a painful punishment.

As the girls train for their roles as priestesses, the series takes a twist for the worse as the battle becomes more intense and complicated. Although the girls have a very close relationship, Chikane is hiding something important from Himeko. Can the girls defeat the Orochi together, or will the world forever live in darkness?

I had high expectations for this show because it is about two reincarnated girls who must save the world from evil destruction. I immediately thought of the series, Blue Seed, because it also contains Japanese mythology and the Yamata no Orochi character. The music (by artist KOTOKO) is also lively and upbeat with a trance background. I love watching shows where the girls have magical powers. More interestingly, they both love each other like yin and yang (two opposite personalities who become whole when combined). If you are not comfortable with yuri themes (lesbian scenes), you may want to ignore this show.

Unfortunately, the plot disappointed me. There was definitely a lot of fan service, but the storyline overall fell flat. The female protagonists even annoyed me because their character development was lackluster and stereotypical. There are several mecha scenes, so the primary audience is teens (boys and girls). The ending did surprise me with Chikane turning evil, but it did not save the show. The only thing I will take away from this show is the music (excellent tracks, but completely forgettable.)

You may buy or rent this show on Amazon.

Mysterious Lake Creature Found in Latin America

Forgive me for not posting much on my blog this month. I have returned to graduate school, and it is kicking my behind workload-wise. I have finally managed to get my assignments under control, so I will add some new posts later this week.

I found this article in the Sun UK magazine. Apparently, a group of teens in Latin America discover a lake creature on the beach. It terrifies the entire town:

TERRIFIED locals in a South American town are running scared after a strange creature they describe as "Gollum" crawled out of a lake and charged schoolkids.

The beast — which has "sparked fear and confusion" in the small town of Cerro Azul, Panama — was spotted on Saturday when four 14 to 16-year-olds were playing by the waterfront.

This is so weird. The link also includes photos and a video of the scene. It does look like a lake monster. But what is it exactly? =/
