mynameissport channel - English anime and video game song covers and other original projects

Recommended Posts

I am AJ aka mynameissport who has dyspraxia. And this thread holds all the work I produced which are English anime or video game song covers or other projects that have not been covered or done by other people.

 

Link to mynameissport on Youtube - http://www.youtube.com/mynameissport

 

The Youtube channel is setup to tackle new projects, primarily anime and video game covers or original works that feature obscure, original or popular series or content that have not been revised for the English language and not been done by other people.

 

Goal is to showcase other content that would be accepted in English and stand out from the usual crowd and to share Asian music to an English/Western audience in a way which they may be more comfortable with and see the depth + feelings that go into the songs.

 

So you will find stuff ranging from Gundam Wing through to Megaman all not been done by other people before. With more projects coming out in the future.

Here's Caroline Gordon English cover of Be The One from the 2017 toku Toei series Kamen Rider Build.

Viewable below

 

 

Be The One was used as the opening song and instantly liked it so want to produce an English cover but this was done as a last minute project.

Since there was no official off vocal instrumental, got permission from kuruto2000 to use their piano instrumental that mix up amalgamations of classical and Japanese pop rock scoring together. Combined with antastictunes lyrics which keeps it faithful to the original translation but still tries to flow to make sense in English.

Also had Caroline Gordon stepping in for vocals and mix to give it a stripped down approach but give it a unique feel. Plus had permission from byudha11 to use the original images for the thumbnail and unknownchaser to do the graphic.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Here's Kamen Rider Black English cover by Kanono to celebrate 30 years of the series.

Viewable below:

https://youtu.be/C2LWArkKnTA7

 

Originally released in 1987 which was translated as Masked Rider Black, it focuses on Kohtaro Minami facing against Gorgom whilst protecting Japan. With its dramatic storyline, twist of the Kamen Rider having a tragic relationship with his arch-nemesis and great soundtrack and opening song, it was one of my favourite Kamen Rider series' I grew up with.

 

The song was used as the opening and made a few changes. Due to having existing harmonies, had to change some of the lyrics in order for them to make sense but Bree Page tried her best not to stray away from the original song meaning. Kanono decided to do its own take rather than copying the original Tetsuo Kurata singer.

 

On top, I got SidneyKun's permission to use their Kamen Rider Black cosplay outfit with Cosplay With Me doing the photography for the graphic image and We Love Tony Wong Photography doing the photography for the thumbnail image.

 

Due to a last minute problem with one of my current projects at the time, this was done in a rush so hopefully the final results are all fine.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Here's chiika's My Boyfriend Is A Pilot English cover to celebrate 35 years of Macross that was originally released in 1982 and produced by myself.

Viewable below:

Originally released in 1982 as its full name of Super Dimension Fortress Macross, it is one of my favourite mecha anime series thanks to its catchy music, captivating stories, relatable characters, unique action sequences and transforming mecha.

 

This insert song was originally done by Lynn Minmay in the anime that was also featured in the Macross Do You Remember Love film and was later covered in Macross Frontier. Since could not use the original instrumental off vocal nor could not get a commission. Had the idea of using the Super Robot Wars Alpha instrumental and combining it with English lyrics.

 

Lyrics wise had to change some in order for them to make sense but Caroline Gordon and Koko did their best not to stray away from the meaning of the original song e.g. We could not fit My Boyfriend Is A Pilot as it will be sound weird. Along with chiika doing her own interpretation rather than copying the original singer.

 

On top, I got Kitty Honey Cosplay permission to use her Misa Hayase cosplay for graphic and PockyPrincessDarcy cosplay permission to use her Lynn Minmay cosplay for thumbnail.

 

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Here's Caroline Gordon River English cover to celebrate 15 years of Gundam Seed and produced by myself.

Viewable below 

Link to view - https://youtu.be/6TEmaGi4wwg

This song was used as the 2nd ending of the original series but not used in the HD Remaster version. It was my favourite ending song out of the lot so wanted to produce an English cover of it.

It ended up released longer than I expected due to being a team effort. Caroline Gordon doing the vocals and mix, Bree Page doing the lyrics, Usagi Lunnaya giving permission to use the Lacus Clyne cosplay picture (know there is Agent Kisa's Meer Campbell cosplay from Gundam SEED Destiny but the picture was too good to pass up so no negative comments please) and Faid Eyren Cosplay giving their Lacus Clyne picture permission to use for the thumbnail.

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Herewith Caroline Gordon's English cover of Dreams taken from Gundam X and produced by myself.

Link to view - https://youtu.be/clb_8_hXtUg

Used as the 1st opening from the 1996 anime. This was one of my projects left on the sidelines and a last minute one so I ended up doing it quickly to get it released. It was also removed from the backlog of song that I had produced.

Comments and feedback are welcome

Here's Akemi English cover of Last Impression, the ending theme of Gundam Wing Endless Waltz film and produced by myself.

Viewable via:

Link - https://youtu.be/7gDxwQi8IVQ

This was used in the OVA film version that was released in 1998 which replaced the 1st ending White Reflection and was well known for its scene during when Wing Gundam Zero Custom was first launched.

Version I produced is the radio edit edition which excludes beginning piano instrumental, first few verses and ending piano instrumental and decided this mainly for time and production constraints.

Also got permission to use UbersCosplay and Saya Rin for their Wing Zero Custom cosplays which I am grateful for. Also got Akemi for vocals, Caroline Gordon for mix and AntasticTunes for English lyrics.

Comments and feedback are welcome. If you like it then feel free to support myself and people involved.
