Hiya!
 
Whats it feel like to have your own music in a part of TV series?
and what do you think of animeboards?

Marius 06-10-2002 02:25 AM

First of all hi and welcome to Animeboards :wavey:

Has the success of Duvet as an anime theme song surprised you at all?

Pen2 06-10-2002 02:47 AM

Hey George, is there anyway we can sort of compile peoples questions and give them to Lee as one list? I'm sort of pitying the poor guy coming over here and then having to sift through a whole barrage of questions which are all asking the same things. :rolleyes:

Maybe if everybody just posts their questions in this thread and a mod can sort through and compile them later.

Hi Lee. Two quick questions.

Recently the creator/producer of Lain, Yasuyuki Ueda, was asked why he chose Boa's Duvet as the opening theme song for Lain. He said it was because the music was so nice and that he was really impressed and touched by the lyrics. I know Jasmine wrote the lyrics, but would you care to give us any insight into their inspiration?

Also, in the same interview, Yoshitoshi ABe (character designer of Lain) said he was very impressed when he heard you live at Otakon. How was it performing before an audience of obsessive anime Otaku, as opposed to doing, dare I say, a "regular" gig?

Yeah, I was just talking about that to E2k. If Lee or others want a compiled list of questions, I'd be more than happy to go over the thread and make one. Eva Type-R's also offering to.

Of course, that's assuming Lee wants to do it that way. The option's here if he wants it.

EVA Type-R 06-10-2002 04:47 AM

Yup. I'd be happy to offer my "services" for the whole question thing, if that's how the plan goes.

Anyways, welcome to AB, Lee. I'm Sijo, the guy who pointed you to the site. Have great fun, man. And keep the members of Boa coming. :)

Welcome, as others have said, to www.animeboards.com :)

I was wondering, what was your opinion of the series Serial Experiments Lain, in which Duvet was used?

Also, assuming the song was written before being chosen for the anime in question, was SE Lain in-keeping with the original feeling that Duvet tried to impress upon listeners?

welcome to animeboards
 
have a good time on animeboards

Welcome to our forums Lee.

I was wondering if after all the exposure you and your band have had with anime & its fans, whether you pursued an interest in any [anime]. Or perhaps look for more contracts with anime producers?
..or did you run as far away as you could from the weirdos who take cartoons entirely too far :D

next, i was wondering if Boa is planning on performing at anymore conventions

Black_Knight 06-10-2002 10:03 AM

Damn, Someone took my question... MDWigs...

Well I'll think of something else, in the matters of something more lighthearted and not about these people's personal lives...

"How many fish can you name?"

DrZepp 06-10-2002 11:08 AM

Hmm... the three questions i would want to get out of the way first would be:

1. What bands or artists have and continue to influenced your music?

2. How do you feel about the single Duvet being widely accepted in the anime community, and do you ever get sick of hearing/playing it?

3. If you had to choose, what would be your favorite Boa song?

Lee (BOA) 06-10-2002 11:36 AM

Hello all,
Thankyou for inviting me and the rest of the band to Animeboards. I will try to answer as many questions as I can for you. The lyrics for duvet were written by Jasmine and so I shall leave that question for her . The Otakon fest was a great experience and so to was the animefest in Dallas. I learnt alot about anime and manga as to be honest I really didn't know much about it before. I used to like the old cartoons and things and things like doctor katz, but from what I saw at the conventions things like Lain, Sailor moon and others have taken anime to a whole new level for me. When I first watched lain I was very suprised at the quality and the feeling an anime could give to you. When we played at Otakon it was great but the sound was not good as the hall was not really built for live music however the enthusiasm of everyone there really lifted us and so as I said we had a great time. As for the difference between a convention and a regular gig Mmmm, Well not much really apart from alot of the crowd know the words to Duvet (Laughs). Hey Black night, what sort of fish? you mean like cod and rock and gold fish? (Laughs). We would like to thank all of the people who came to see us on our UK tour and it was great meeting some of you. Anyway I will be back asap and hopefully I will bring some of the others in too. Thanks again.
Lee (BOA)
