Even though there are some negative vibes going around in the Sharing Forums these days, I would like to share some songs from my anime collection for free (of course), which are all in the style of Queen (but in Japanese language).

If I can locate it as well, I will also upload the famous Japanese Queen medley. I know I have it somewhere...

But for now, the first one up is called "Love Seeker (Can't Stop It)" by VisioN, whose song on the b-side for this single apparently sounded much more like Queen than this song did.

This song was the 7th and last opening theme to the popular martial arts -slash- romantic comedy anime "Ranma ½".

(TV Edit)

See if you can spot the Queen influences in the full version!


And next is apparently from a mecha (robot-ish) anime called "Big-O". I've never watched this myself, as I personally don't like mecha anime at all, sadly enough.

But this draws heavily from Queen's "Flash". A very good one at that too!

Also, if anyone has problems with me uploading the full songs, I think the TV Edit versions are at the very least allowable to upload on the Internet since TV edit versions of anime themes are rarely ever released on CD in Japan. This applies to Ranma ½, as I have yet to find a CD that contains all the edits.


But other than that, tell me what you guys think!

Can't Stop It sounds like it could've been a later Queen tune, especially the a capella intro. The whole song is very harmonious, and just sounds Queenish. In the english bits, the lead singer seems to channel a bit of Freddie's spirit, and the guitarist must be using a Red Special emulator.

You can't share any of this. It is all official material. Please remove the links or I will have to contact the administrator about it.

I'd rather wait until one of the more well known and respected posters here puts their opinion(s) in before I do anything.

And besides, I don't think there should be any problem with anime songs being put up online here. Sites like gendou.com generally only prohibit uploading songs that have not been released yet on CD, or English translated material (e.g. the American Pokemon MP3's for example).

I'm only uploading these two songs because they sound like Queen, and I wanted to get your opinions on these.

First off. Fuck you for implying that my opinion doesn't matter as much as any other users. I shouldn't have to post a lot too earn your respect. Secondly, official matterial is official material. It doesn't matter if it is Queen music or any other kind. All this stuff is official so therefor it should be treated the same as if official Queen music had been posted, which means its immediate removal. By bending the rules in this case that shows you give jack shit about an artist's hard work. If you going to disrespect these artist you better not say shit when I go ahead and upload The Game or Sheer Heart Attack or Queen II for everybody here to download lest you be a hypocrite. Asshole.

I'm not implying that you have to post a lot to gain respect. If it were that easy, I'd already have loads of respect.

And also I do not believe that VisioN even make any more money from sales of the record, as:

1) The anime series ended many years ago
2) The song is no longer sold on CD (outside of few compilations)
3) The band aren't together anymore. In fact, I think this song was their only single and no more.


I'm saying I'd rather hear from someone with more power or influence, such as YourValentine, Barry, etc.

Yeah, Cromartie is very Queen-influenced.
Not only is Freddie in the series as a character, but the cover of the first DVD is a take-off of Queen II.
