I’m a massive fan of YouTube, I started with blogs and then got into web-series and more recently into gaming channels. I never really liked the idea of watching other people play games, I thought the entire idea of it was stupid unless you were actually stuck at a part in a game. When I first got the technic mod pack for minecraft I went to Youtube and started watching the Yogscast main channel series just to get an idea of what it was all about, and of course I instantly fell in love with it.
This is where I found Area 11; a band with two members in the Yogscast and who make the theme music for some videos. I loved their stuff and so went to look around their channel and sure enough they are such an amazing band. They do ‘gaijin rock’ music based around anime’s which I think is pretty cool, and so I bought their album ‘All the Lights In the Sky’ not that long ago and it is all I have listened to since, my favourite song being ‘Shi no Barado’. I haven’t seen many animes but really want to go check out some of the ones from their songs as I love both this music and most of the animes I have seen.
