I’m hooked on a new J-Rock artist. Yes, another Japanese rock girl. Also, named “AYA” too. hahaha. I first listened to her song “Over Night” from the ending theme song of the current anime I’m watching called “Le Chevalier D’Eon”. It had a mixture of trance and rock. All I know is it’s damn good. Le Chevalier D’eon is a Great anime by the way. Check it out if you get a chance. ;) Here’s a little Bio info on AYA:
AYA is a J-Rock artist on the BMG FUNHOUSE label. She is heavily influenced by the Seattle sound of the early 90’s and has worked with American producer Adam Kasper, who heard her demo and was impressed. Kasper produced bands like Soundgarden, Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam. He invited AYA to Seattle and recruited top musicians to help create her sound. On her albums, AYA has worked with famous Seattle artists like Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), John McBain (Monster Magnet), and Glenn Slater (Walkabouts) to name a few.
She is also known by her Japanese name, 亜矢.

Just started on a new series. Ergo Proxy. So far so good. I am digging the drawings and the whole setting has that Minority Report feel to it. I hope it ends well. I’ll give a more detailed review once I finish the series. But first, I have to finish Prison Break and oh man is it good. hahaha.
Was chatting with my boy Justin and talking about anime and I got the idea of posting my all time Faves and I’m even going to link it to the first episode so you all can start watching!!!! Personally, I prefer English sub over English Dub but I couldn’t find the links to all the original Japanese language vids. If your’e lazy u’ll prolly like Eng Dub. haha. Still good though. Also, some of the Veoh links you will need to register to view it since they are 18+ and you will have to disable family filter. I also linked them to Anime News Networks reviews. Wheeee! :) Enjoy!
DEATHNOTE! – This series is amazing. Killing someone by writing their name in a Notebook. Wtf?! haha. This Eng Dub is actually really good. – Video Link – Reviews
Claymore – Girls with big swords. What more do you want? :) Eng Sub – Video Link – Reviews
Last Exile – 19th century plus Anti-Gravity devices equals Awesome. Eng Dub.. not as good as Eng Sub but good – Video Link – Reviews
Berserk – Still one of the best manga series to ever make it to Anime. Unfortunately, you need to get the manga to continue the story. But the anime alone is so worth the ride. Eng Sub – Video Link – Reviews
Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad – This series inspired me to buy my first guitar! I love this anime. Can’t find Eng Sub or Dub… :( – Video Link – Reviews
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed – I really like the Gundam series. Every series seems to relate well to modern day lives and politics but instead of tanks and planes you have big ass Robotic Suits. I love Mecha! Good stuff. Eng Sub – Video Link – Reviews
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 – The newest of the Gundam series. I am liking this one so far. Eng Sub – Video Link – Reviews
God there is so many more anime I want to list but this is tiring. I’ll have to do it in another post at another date. haha. Have fun watching! :)
