OtakuFighter No. 4. Music!

When I train at The Boxing Club, I usually don’t have time to listen to music.  That and I don’t bring my headphones into the ring for obvious reasons.  During the workout portions where I’m by myself, I usually have a playlist of songs that I listen to.  Right now it’s mostly J-Rock.  Or is it…?

BABYMETAL, what happens when AKB48 and Slayer have weird freaky sex on the Warped Tour.

I’ve been hooked on this group called BABYMETAL, one of the subgroups of the J-pop group Sakura Gakuin.  It consists of Suzuka Nakamoto (SU-METAL), Yui Mizuno (YUI-METAL), and Moa Kikuchi (MOA-METAL), and a really really dope metal band.  You’re probably asking why Japanese Pop would be thrown together with hard furious metal, and believe me, I was asking myself the same damn thing.

I decided to just let it go and have a listen.  And I was hooked.  These are the BABYMETAL songs that are in my iPhone right now.

“Megitsune” (Vixen)

“Catch Me If You Can”

“Ijime, Dame, Zettai!” (No More Bullying!)


“Iine!” (It’s good, right?)

“Uki Uki ★ Midnight”

And since I’m the otakuFIGHTER, I’ve gotta have some anime music on rotation. Obviously.

LISA – Crossing Field (Sword Art Online Opening 1)

Metal Figher Miku’s Opening “Kaze Ni Naru Made”

Hironobu Kageyama – “WE GOTTA POWER” (Dragon Ball Z’s 2nd opening)

Kana Yazumi – “Be Strong” (History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi’s 1st opening)
