|It’s anison beatbox time|
Daichi is an extremely popular Japanese YouTuber who is known for his amazing beatboxing skills. Since starting his channel about eight years ago, Daichi has managed to amass quite the library of impressive beatbox cover videos. Today, we’re going to take a look at three of these beatbox covers. Specifically we’ll be focusing on his anime song covers. Let’s get started!
3. Pride Kakumei – Pride Revolution – プライド革命
First up we have the song used in the 15th opening sequence of the popular anime Gintama. The original version of this song was performed by CHICO with HoneyWorks.
2. Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen – Crimson Bow and Arrow – Guren no Yumiya – 紅蓮の弓矢
At number two we have an impressive rendition of the first Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) opening song, which was originally performed by the band Linked Horizon.
1. Zankoku na Tenshi no Tēze – A Cruel Angel’s Thesis – 残酷な天使のテーゼ
At number one we have the iconic theme song to one of the most popular anime series of the 1990s Neon Genesis Evangelion. The original version of this theme was sung by Yoko Takahashi. This version also features a female vocalist named Ayane. Ayane handles the singing, while Daichi handles everything else.
And here’s one extra video to finish things off. In this video Daichi performs a medley of various well-known anime themes, completely by himself and without the use of multiple tracks like in the videos above. See how many of the songs you can recognize.
