After some thought, I have decided to switch from Contempt to Cutline. Cutline has the slightly wider main column and less cramped text that I was looking for. We’ll see how this works out; comments are welcome. The new theme comes with a new banner, of sorts, with added MANLY TEA, as well as the Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster taken from the ninth episode of G Gundam. It’s a little rough-around-the-edges, but if I’m fitting in my blog’s title, my favourite beverage and my location, all in anime form, I can’t be going far wrong.
In the meantime, because I dislike the idea of an entry entirely devoid of content much like nature dislikes a vacuum, here’s the startling (I’ve no idea if it’s any good, mind) second ending theme from ∀ Gundam (the so-called ‘Miyazaki Gundam’), in its full-length incarnation:
‘Tsuki No Mayu’ (‘The Moon’s Cocoon’) sung by Aki Okui
(I’m told Kanno composed the music)
For anyone whose interest is piqued by the slightly risque nature of one of the DVD cover images in that video, I should note that ∀ Gundam contains no actual yuri (in a classic case of the contents not matching the box). Sorry to disappoint.
In its ED incarnation, the music backs a metamorphosis sequence:
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is that.
