Sweet...that song is awesome. It reminds me a bit of "Don't Bring Me Down" by ELO. Very Happy

Excellent! FUNimation should learn a lesson from Geneon.

And what lesson might that be? I'm guessing you mean that Funimation should learn not to license anime that include North American songs from money-grubbing record companies...

Awesome!

When they first announced Paradise Kiss I was sure that they wouldn't be able to license the song, but it's good to know that Geneon and Franz Ferdinand's people were able to reach an agreement ^^

In this case, Franz Ferdinand is British and their record company is Japanese-American-German (although I guess that has no bearing on how money-grubbing they are).

That song made that show, its one of the few times I watched a show because the ending animation got stuck in my craw.

Franz Ferdinand has more than one song? Cool

Anyway, yay for Geneon and all that. It's nice that there's some hope for Train Man

That's not really news. Anime News Service was saying that last week. Rolling Eyes

If they're shows which revolve around music, then I agree.

Yes. The amount of crying and begging for this song, jumping for joy at the announcement was similar to the "Paranoid Android" events. Those 2 songs were a perfect match for those titles. It would have been a shame not to hear them or see their associated ED animations.

Don't forget Tommy february6's "Lonely in Gorgeous Tears" and Monoral's "kiri". Those artists aren't lightweights either imo. Those songs were a perfect match for their respective titles too imo and Geneon was able to get those songs too.

Thank you Geneon for these songs and the R2 cover artwork. =D>

This is awesome. While I generally don't care too much about ending themes, ParaKiss just wouldn't be the same without this one. I always loved singing along with it.
