Aniblog Tourney 2012 Is Live! (And the Marvelous Misadventures of Marow)

That banner was so huge that my blog made it super small, so here, have a man and his pink fish instead.

This is more of a reminder to those of you who have forgotten, or even more importantly, to those of you who have not heard of this before! The Aniblog Tourney 2012 has now started and you can find the official website (or blog, if you want to be correct) HERE. Go and vote as if your life depended on it! And if you wonder what this is about, but are too lazy to check out the website, here is a quick summary:

The Aniblog Tourney is a tournament in which anime blogs battle every day to claim their rightful places, all wanting to the very best like no one ever was. The reason for this is so we do not have to travel across the Internet, searching far and wide after new blogs to read. Because as we all know: we gotta read ‘em all!

Click “Continue Reading” if you want to read silly re-done lyrics of the third Pokémon opening and about my Marvelous Misadventures™.

So, I was inspired by Draggle from “Draggle’s Anime Blog”. When the, in my opinion, failure Guilty Crown aired, he did some wonderful posts with people singing a various of different songs redone to fit the events taking place in said show. Check them out HERE (spoilers if you have not watched Guilty Crown, naturally!). So I decided to be a singer myself, singing some redone Pokémon openings, perhaps even do an Aniblog rap. Feeling all gung-ho, I started singing and recording, being all embarrassed. Then, when I actually decided to listen to myself, I screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOO and realized once again that I never was destined to sing.

Just. Outright. Horrible.

It was so bad that I came to the conclusion that not even a sound editor could save my voice. So instead, here, have some lyrics and imagine someone good singing them. You will see more of these later on. Perhaps I should get Scamp from The Cart Driver to sing for us with his charming voice? Go and help me convince him, will you?

It’s a whole new ‘sphere we live in.
Aniblog Tourney!
(Do do do do do, do do do do do)

Everybody wants to be a master.
Everybody wants to show their skills.
Everybody wants to get there faster.
Make their way to the top of the hill.

Each time, you try,
Gonna get just a little bit better.
Each step, you climb,
Is one more step up the bracket.

It’s a whole new ‘sphere we live in,
(Do do do do do do)
It’s a whole new way to write,
(Do do do do do do)
It’s a whole new year with a brand new attitude,
But you still gotta beat ’em all!
To be the best that you can be!

(Do do do do do, do do do do do)
It’s a whole new ‘sphere we live in,
But you still gotta beat ’em all,
And be the best that you can be!

(Do do do do do do)

    ‘The Marvelous Misadventures of Marow’, sounds like a Roald Dahl book!
    Best of luck to ya’ in the upcoming tournament!

    Good luck Marow! 🙂

  3. Hope you find someone to sing this re-imagining of the Pokemon theme. Should be interesting to see what happens in the run to crown the Aniblog Tourney champion. I’m still not entirely sure if this competition brings out the best or the worst in people. All I know is that bloggers and anime fans seem to be socializing more often in the weeks leading up to this event. In a way, that has been the goal of the tournament from the start.

      I heard there were drama last time, but so far it’s only fun (draggle and chikorita came close to becoming mad, at least I felt like that).

      Yep, much more socializing! Events tend to do that with people. And it’s fun 🙂

    “Johto”? What is this newfangled stuff? I was hoping for the original song, I’m too old to get these references. 😦

    Also you should sing it anyway, it will be glorious!

    • Marow says:

      But Johto was after Kanto, it was great too 😦
      Guess you’ll be left unimpressed next time, since that’s also Johto! (but that song is based on the very first opening)
