'More Than Words'- Yoko Kanno and Yuho Iwasato Return in 2012

Post by dillpops » 2012-01-12 11:09

It was announced today that Maaya will not only be starring in the new Code Geass OVA but will also be singing the opening song 'More Than Words', composed by Yoko Kanno with lyrics by Yuho Iwasato.

I imagine this will brighten up everyone's January ^^

Discuss.

It caught me off-guard for sure. It's like Macross F OP once again, hahaha!

But probably better! Well, at least hopefully most fans will like this Code Geass song more than the Mac F OP (which I still like a lot). And Maaya plays the lead female character in this new Code Geass anime (not just another supporting role). :D :D :D

Did you guys notice who is the composer for the anime soundtrack. It's not Kanno, but they did choose someone else that's also talented and linked to Maaya's past works. :)

EDIT - After doing some research and thinking about it, I don't see the connection of all 3 people to Mac F. In fact the last time they all worked together was on Wolf's Rain I believe.

Yes, it's not Iwasato, it just happens to have caught me off-guard, and it's such a popular title!!!

*Reads the title*


Bwahahahhaha! *laughs like Lelouch *evil laugh*

> Super excited knowing that Lulu's still alive ( as I expect ) due to his twin Geass, aka immortality.

Edit* - The new series is a spinoff of the Code Geass, and Maaya nee sama is co-hosting as the one of the main chara, quite similar like Mishima in Rahxephon series. My bad, I just read this.

So it's still a mystery, weather lulu still alive or not :P




Yuho & Kanno Sensei is involved. This is serious.

They only just announced the title, there won't be a PV with the opening until the proper trailers come out. The series isn't due for ages yet, if I remember correctly? The first preview will probably be on Vitamin-M.

no wonder it was revoked hardly. haha... eh, wait? XD



update: I've heard it was a leaked version, but only the video went out.. the audio for the video was strictly blocked. Director's leak version.. sadly I'm only interested with the audio.

Searched the whole internet, including the chinese sites. LOL, found nothing of value.

Wish that she would release 4-5 new English Songs, and then recompiled all the English songs that she has made before, or the non-japanese like Fado, Daniel, Park Amsterdam..


Heck, re-record them all under a new/different composer, that may give a varied version of the previous song. And then boom, a fully English album. Love it!

Most Asian countries now, understands English ~ and she'll be known as a new addition to Celtic musical, similar to Enya (everybody loves Enya) XD

Victor Ent / flying dog hasn't released any further info yet. They wil probably post a release date as it gets closer to summer (when the anime comes out). In the meantime, we can enjoy Maaya's new concert dvd & blu-ray release. :)
