Most of my free time is spent at the computer checking emails, visiting websites, playing games, coding, designing, whatever. While doing all these activities, 90% of the time I have music playing in the background. For the past year or so my playlist has consisted of songs and tunes related to anime, with the odd English pop sing inserted here and there. If you look at my playlist now, maybe like 10% of it are songs NOT related to anime.

  2. List of Anime to Recommend to your Friends (Part 2)
  3. Special Anime Recommendations, K-On! and Angel Beats! (Part 3)

Sharing Anime with your friends has multiple benefits; you can talk and discuss before and afterwards what you thought of a particular series, who your favourite characters are and why, and what makes that one particular Anime your favourite. Unfortunately, Anime can be difficult to describe or recommend to your friends; depending on who they are, where they come from, and how much they know about Anime can have heavy influences on their perception and desire. In North America, Anime isn’t as popular as it is in Asia, so naturally people aren’t exposed to it and therefore will not be entertained by it as easily…

Thought it would be appropriate to record some Zelda piano music, with Ocarina of Time 3DS coming out (sooner or later >.>”).
