ZOMG! Ichimaru Gin's Bleach Beat Collection came out yesterday! Whoever said that Kouji Yusa could sing was right on the money.
So... my take on the tracks... (I don't know the names though :()Sekaiwa Sudeni Giki no Ueni; (The World is Already Deceived)
-- So hypnotizing. Definitely passed "My Blade as My Pride" as favorite lead off track. It really kinda lulls and sorta pulls you in... kinda like Gin. I love it. (Plus the addition "bai bai" is just awesome.)Fuyu no Hanabi; (Winter Fireworks)
-- The duet with Rangiku. They sound really good together. (zomg! we need more GinRan interaction!) I thought this would be a really angsty track, but it's not and it still sounds great. Matsutani Kaya's voice sounds really good. Rangiku has that low, sultry voice (that fits perfectly) and the vocals on this track just showed off that that low, sexy voice even more. (Now I want a Matsumoto Beat Collection.) Easily my favorite duet.Hyo Ri; (Inside and Outside)
-- Talk about a totally different sound. This one is kinda light. I like the music and like pausedsilence
mentioned, I can totally see Gin singing this to himself while he's not doing paperwork. (Oh you know Kira had to do it all. XD)Sekaiwa Sudeni Giki no Ueni [INSTRUMENTAL]; (The World is Already Deceived [INSTRUMENTAL])
-- Instrumental of track one -- Awesome music, man.Final Verdict
-- *sighs* I hate to say it... but it beats Ishida's Beat Collection. It all just comes together so well. (I didn't care much for Ishida's first track.) Each track shows off a different part of a character that's so... hard to put into words. The dark, hypnotizing feel, the Rangiku interaction, the light, playful feeling... that's all Gin and it really comes off well.
