Anime fan-cover YouTubers Amanda Lee and Luke Thomas have taken one of the best OPs of the year and turned it into an English Hunger Games-esque lullaby. Vocally it’s a little messy, but the haunting ambience and backing track are nothing short of gripping.
If anything, it is a strong glimmer of hope for an English market that is all too familiar with dubbing that doesn’t quite match the same intensity as the original Japanese. An excellent sample of work demonstrating that one doesn’t need over-the-top music (Linked Horizon, you may want to reconsider relooking into the full version of your song) to win an audience.
Case in point:
Isayama Hajime-san, are you hearing this?
