Round 454

Another anime I’ve recently started watching is Mysteria Friends (known also as Manaria Friends.) While both main characters are fascinating, the dragon-born princess has captivated me from the start. Therefore, this week I claim Grea from Mysteria Friends/Manaria Friends:

Round 455

I love to find the opening and ending themes for the animes I enjoy. If I can find the full version, that’s a plus, and if I can find a live version or an official PV, then I’m really impressed. One of my favorite anime opening themes of the Winter 2019 season is Crying for Rain by Minami. The full length PV is an animated video that illustrates the song amazingly, with the girl who is the MC of the PV (is she Minami?) singing some of the lines of the song. I’ve become enthralled with her, and since it is an animated short–and the Japanese consider all animated works “anime”-- this week, I claim the MC of the PV of Crying for Rain, the opening song for the anime Domestic Girlfriend:

If you haven’t seen the PV, here it is–from Minami’s official YouTube channel:

So we’re allowed to claim characters from animated music videos if they’re Japanese?
So vocaloids are fair game, even if they aren’t in any of the mangas.

I’m not sure how to even put that on the list. It’s not a series, where does it go?

I’ve edited my post to make it clear that the PV is of the opening theme to Domestic Girlfriend, so you can list it under that series. As for your concern about vocaloids, the MC of the video is not a vocaloid. She’s like a character in an anime–her voice is provided by Minami, not a computer program. If there’s a vocaloid who sings an anime theme song and appears in a PV, I’d allow it if the PV can be tied to the series.

Some clarification:

I’m not saying this particular character is a vocaloid, what I mean is, since you said:

To me, that means any old music video, provided it’s animated, and Japanese, is anime, so any music video that contains Vocaloids, which are both animated, and Japanese would make them claimable. I was just using Vocaloids as an example since they’re well known. But it seems what you’re actually saying, is that it has to be a PV for an anime, which brings me to:

I don’t believe that video is a PV for the anime. I think it’s just a musc video that uses that song, hence why it says MV instead of PV. It’s closer to just a regular old music video than actual promotional material for the show. I’m actually double confused now, because on the one hand you say that since it’s an animated short, it’s anime, but then on the other you’re saying the song has to be a theme song from an anime, and the video needs to be a PV.

I have to ask then to clarify:

  • If there’s an animated music video for any song, so long as the video is Japanese, does that mean the characters are claimable, or does it have to be a PV?
  • If they made an animated video for Roundabout, could I claim the characters because it’s the ending theme to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?
  • If all animated works are anime, can I claim characters from any Japanese commercials I find online?

You’re basically writing yourself a new rule here, or at least expanding one, so make it count :+1:
