    Japanese electronica.

    One of the best intro musical scores for any show I've seen to date.

    This is Red Faction's intro for Black Lagoon:

    The all seeing eye is always watching.

    Of course this one has to go here.

    This is the complete version of Yoko Kanno's Inner Universe.

    GITS fans will recognize parts of it, but this is the full 5:14 version.



    Yoko is awesome.

    And my favorite Yoko Kanno song to date.

    It's just...well, you'll see:




    Lyrics (in tranliterated Japanese):

    Hitotsume no kotoba wa yume
    nemuri no naka kara
    mune no oku no kurayami wo sotto
    tsuredasu no

    futatsume no kotoba wa kaze
    yukute wo oshiete
    kamisama no ude no naka e
    tsubasa wo aoru no

    tokete itta kanashii koto wo
    kazoeru you ni
    kin'iro no ringo ga
    mata hitotsu ochiru

    mita koto mo nai fuukei
    soko ga kaeru basho
    tatta hitotsu no inochi ni
    tadoritsuku basho

    furui mahou no hon
    tsuki no shizuku yoru no tobari
    itsuka aeru yokan dake

    we can fly
    we have wings
    we can touch floating dreams
    call me from so far
    through the wind
    in the light

    mittsume no kotoba wa hum ..
    mimi wo sumashitara
    anata no furueru ude wo
    sotto tokihanatsu

    Here's another song I really like.
    This one's from Gundam SEED.



    Lyrics:

    Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro

    Arifureta yasashi saha kimi wo toozakeru dake
    Tsumetaku kirisuteta kokoro wa samayou bakari
    Sonna kakkou warusa ga ikiru toiu koto nara
    Samuzora no shita me wo tojite iyou

    Anna ni issho datta no ni
    Kotoba hitotsu toura nai kasoku shite yuku senaka ni ima wa
    Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro
    Semete kono tsuki akari no shita de shizuka na nemuri wo

    Unmei to umaku tsukiatte yuku nara kitto
    Kanashii toka sabishii nante itte rare nai
    Nando mo tsunagatta kotoba wo muryoku ni shite mo
    Taikutsu na yoru wo tsubushitain da ne

    Anna ni issho datta no ni
    Fuzoroi na futari ni ima tadoritsukeru basho nado nainda
    Anna ni issho datta no ni hajimete au yokogao ni
    Fushigi nakurai ni miserareteru tomadou kurai ni

    Kokoro wa doko ni iru? Doko ni fukarete iru? Sono hitomi ga mayowanu you ni

    Anna ni issho datta no ni
    Kotoba hitotsu toura nai ugoki hajimeta kimi no jounetsu
    Anna ni issho datta no ni yuugure wa mou chigau iro
    Semete kono tsuki akari no shita de shizuka na nemuri wo

    No collection of great Japanese songs would be complete without Yokko Kanno's "Tank":

    You'll recognize it!

    Special thanks to Sheeah Freitas, author of The Chosen: Book One, for introducing me to this song.
