It's the obligatory clip show! Out of all the endings G5 Prince Lap is def. my favorite. It's new wave-ish.

Anyway, the way TVN handled the G5 Prince song really annoyed me. They left in all the onomatopoeias and added a note for about half of them. Of course, there are hundreds of weird-ass onomatopoeias in Japanese that don't have an equivalent in English (like staring or blinking), but that doesn't mean there's nothing you can do with them. Using a verb gets the point across just fine. So I took the line "Gyutto With You (TL Note: Gyutto = sound of something being tight)" and changed it to "Squeezing You." And all the others were changed into words that people can understand.
