The Official Tsukiko Amano Thread

Hello everyone! I just happened to chance upon Tsukiko Amano once again with her 5 consecutive releases within the same day and having heard Karasu and Utakata (her first 2 singles of these 5) I think it has reaffirmed me to start off an official Tsukiko Amano thread!

I guess most of us here got to know her through the game Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly as she sang the theme song Chou (Japanese for Butterfly) which is just <3 as far as I know!

So, with her 5 singles released on the same day, what do you have to say about her music, the image she portrays and things? Let's get started!

I'm kind of curious about how well Tsukiko will do with the 5 singles on one day release....if I had enough money to spare, I might buy them all, but I haven't heard too much of her recent stuff lately.

I <3 Tsukiko...

'Koe' is my favourite of the two Fatal Frame theme songs and probably my favourite PV from her as her dress is beautiful. I love her facial expressions when she sings so emotional. Her voice makes my hairs stand on end. *Nod*

Tsukiko is just one of those artists that puts so much passion into her music. I love how she religiously plays her guitar in all of her songs. (As far as I know). I've heard all her albums, and Tenryu is my favorite, with A Moon Child in the Sky right behind it. I watched her new PV(s) yesterday, and I love Karasu. I'm still trying to get in to Utakata.

I hope that at least two the five singles can do fairly well.

buzzuh? its pretty much universally agreed upon in the fan community that tenryu and amcits are her two weakest albums.
on tenryu (hands down her worst album), chou and tsuki were pretty much the only tracks could stand on their own (rightfully so, as they were singles). unfortunately, they were placed right after one another, so you kind of have a good start with tsurugi, then the album kind of slips into this 'filler' feel (same was also released as a single, but frankly, the song is a mess at best, and the laughable video doesn't help). blah blah blah, then come CHOU and TSUKI, and then i can't even really remember what else was on there. it droned on and on, and i can't even say it at least had good lives (megu ni aetara kicked the hell out of tour of the dragon.)
as for amcits, the album seemed rather experimental. maybe tenryu's relative success brought on this thought that koe alone would be able to push the album far enouth to still be profitable, because on a lot of the tracks it almost felt like she wasn't even really putting herself into it. the album version of hisui couldn't hold a candle to the single (which says pretty terrible things, considering the single version was a yawnfest at best), and idea was just a downright bad song. all those thrashy rock tracks just made me think of tom panks, then you had koe and kakan as the moody songs, which only left stone, satoumizu, and hakase to kujaku to leave an impression on me. and even satoumizu had a handicap, as i've a weakness for waltz time. additionally, i only managed to find a single idea live for this album, and my bias against the song in the first place really prevented me from judging it fairly.

sharon stones and meg & lion both held a lot of variation. each track was unique and could hold itself up on its own. tenryu was bland, and amcits was disappointing. i've high hopes for her five singles, but i'll hold my expectations low until they come in, sometime within the next two weeks.


i really wish most people who say 'i love tsukiko amano' didn't mean 'i love chou and/or koe.'

*shrugs* I've heard all her albums, and I like those two the best. To me, they leave the best impressions, and not Meg & Lion or Sharon Stones. Yes, they have great songs too, but I like the songs from Tenryu and A Moon Child in the Sky more.

And yes, I will be the first to say that Chou is my favorite song by her. (But not Koe...I still don't like that song much) Although I wasn't very thrilled by the PV. I think, from the ones I've seen, that the Same PV is my favorite, although BG is really good as well. (I've only seen about half of her PVs.)

I think many of us here appreciate her for her music other than Chou and Koe! Which of course many of us know because of the Fatal Frame series but yup, Chou just happens to be one of the best songs ever from her in my opinion!

I wonder when the PVs of the other singles she's releasing is going to be shown. I quite like the concept of the PVs for the moment, the different doors and merging the different entities of different singles together (like the Karasu Amano meeting the Chaos Amano and the presence of the red balloon)

(OH MY, I'm triple posting!)

Now that the 5 singles have been made available for download, what do you guys have to say about them?

I personally thought Karasu was the strongest single. I loved both the A-side and B-side! Amazing! Overall, the 5 singles all were quality songs I thought but Karasu stood out the most followed by Utakata. I expected more of a rocker in Konoton -chaos- but it wasn't as rockish as I thought it would be though. Still, great singles from Tsukiko, they're definitely worth an album!

I enjoyed the new singles alot, both A-sides and B-sides, there wasn't really a difference in quality between the two. Hopefully they'll be made available for purchase in a more convenient form in the future.

I've recently re-gotten into her but I'm surprised to see such a small fanbase for her.

Hm.. Rainmaker seems a bit rude.. then again, that usually happens with artists with such a small fanbase.

"its pretty much universally agreed upon in the fan community that tenryu and amcits are her two weakest albums."
That doesn't mean other people can't like them. If you always try to shove the "fan community"'s opinion on new fans, you'll just alienate them...

Hmm.. so I've just listened to the 5 singles and I have to say I loved Karasu best. It's so powerful and catchy. Which was your favourite single out of all them? ^^

Rainmaker You're like saying "I love Koda Kumi" = "I love real Emotion & 1000 Words" in 2003-2004 period.
