Is there a way you could just get a different singer?
I can imagine. 8O She looks kinda different, but still...

I know nobody who is male, could sound like Gold, and has a decent singing voice. D:
If necessary, I'd sing it myself and just forget the whole "Gold's singing it" thing, but then again I slur my "S"s and would never be able to record in decent quality.
And I don't even know. I just know it freaked me the hell out when I turned a binder page and she was right there...

Dude, are you serious? The lyrics sound awesome so far! 8D You're really heating up my animating urge now...If only I could find a good program...
Maybe you could ask around for someone who's willing to be Gold's Seiyuu? ;D
*Looks* WTF!? What is SHE doing there? I thought she was a manga original character! O.o

-still kinda freaked- Take a look at what I posted in the FC...

Adventures never really end -
Turn back time and right the wrong
With prism bells and forest song
On open roads, the sunset calls me -
And frozen retribution...
That's the "refrain" bit. There's a coda part at the end, where the tune changes from the "action and awesome" sound of a minor key to a "warmer" major key, and a few verses at the beginning which is sort of "Gold rambling about stuff and trying to sound cool."
Iunno. There are some parts that are very synced in with the images (lines 3/4/7/8 up there) and some completely random parts. All up to you, though, I stop once the song is done. xD
Ohjeez, I'm going to need to find someone to sing this...

Don't worry about it.
So this would be the theme for a GSC OP? Excellent. I haven't been able to find a possible song I could use yet. >.>
Yeah, it really depends on what I can see in the opening when I hear the song...So no pressure, right? XD

-sigh- I'm still convinced that this fan-OP is going to be cheesy as all crap.
Anywho, the title is set in stone as "Reborn", it failed at being unconnected to the actual saga, it retains as much attachment as the typical Pokemon anime OP. Lyrics are sorta-kinda meant to be sung by Gold. Still working on the test MIDI, which will have the lyric melody and pieces of the instrumental tune (to establish rhythm/timing/such.)
As far as graphics go, I imagined it with a heavier emphasis on the Three Beasts and Gold's (peripheral?) journey, with Mask of Ice showing up like once. Buuuut that'll all be up to you when you eventually hear it.
...Personally, I think it rings of those Shaman King/Tokyo Underground OPs. The melody is similar if put into a different key, and that bugs me. >/<

Thank you! I'll let you know once I get the program in a few months.

That's awesome, Clover! I can't wait to see what kind of stuff you're able to make!

I like it.
The reason why I want to bring this up with you is because...I was serious when I said I wanted to learn how to animate. I've been researching programs, reading reviews, getting free trial versions...But the earliest I'll be able to get one is Christmas (mainly because I'm practically broke. *Holds out empty wallet). After that, I think I'll spend a while practicing little things, like screen shots and such, and next year I plan to take Computer Graphics. So there's no real rush (not like there was any to begin with, anyway. XD)

I'm...not actually experienced in writing songs, but I've taken piano for seven years, and I'm always humming stuff to myself, sooo...-laughs- I'm also taking Electronic Music this semester, so I could use one of these songs as a project for the class.
The FRLG opening that I have in-progress is all about the past and the future, since, y'know, timeskip and all that. -shrugs- Am I the only one~ Who won't forget the days we left behind~? Are we forgotten now~ as echoes of the stories we believed~?
