What did I listen to?: Obey Me! VAs visit an Obey Me! café thing parts 2 and 3 (videos on Youtube)
How much time did I spend listening?: 23 min
I finished off this series of videos today - there was, indeed, karaoke Each of the main Obey Me! characters has an original song (sung by the character’s VA), so each VA picked one of the character songs to sing (not the one that they sang for their character originally). My favorite moment (which I got the gist of on the first listen, but then rewatched with pauses so I could try to read the captions better):
Kada: Why am I here, you guys are all good singers and I’m so bad
Yaguchi: But do you like to sing?
Kada: Yes xD But I’m so nervous~
Ayme, the professional singer: Let’s just enjoy karaoke together!
Kada: Yes! Ok! Let’s have fun singing together.
Ayme: But also this will be on youtube later
Kada acts all shy but then somehow also has the guts to do Ayme’s character song right in front of him, like sir, you chose the hard road But Ayme’s just grooving along and lip-syncing supportively, it’s very cute xD Until we get close to the end and everyone starts laughing because the song gets a little bit too far outside of Kada’s vocal range He tried A for effort
I was low-key about to riot at the end of part 2 because I thought Ayme was going to be the only one who didn’t sing - they showed the other three singing, but then they cut to a segment about merch for the end of the video, so I thought the karaoke part was over. But then in part 3 there was more karaoke and he did sing, so it was fine xD
So far, I’m having a much easier time sitting down and listening daily-ish than I thought I would. I’m not sure my Japanese is really improving, but at least I’m having fun xD
Also, this is somewhat random, but I got some unexpected Japanese listening practice while I was watching a k-pop vlive today - they were mostly talking in Korean (which I understand essentially none of) but they were throwing out some Japanese phrases in part of it (because they’re in Japan currently, so they were like telling a story of something that happened while they were there) and I was like hey I understood that part :o So that was neat.
Nooo, I like this birb and his spoony beak, save him D:
