This is perhaps one moment I just have to share but will only probably be appreciated by a few.
This was back in high school, in the late 90's. Rurouni Kenshin was the craze back then and the movie (the long, boring one--the same one that aired in HBO; yes, HBO in the Philippines aired the Rurouni Kenshin movie) was just released. I managed to acquire a CD which had the theme song for the movie and it was a ballad that had a tragic feel to it.
Of course I was shocked when I found out who was singing it. It was by the band Animetal. Their name leaves little imagination as to what type of music they play. They're known for metal covers of various anime, sentai, and tokusatsu songs (including the spunkiest Sailor Moon song I ever heard). Animetal singing a ballad was about as shocking as learning one of the members of Korn converted to Christianity and started his Christian band.
