Admittedly, I’ve always preferred female vocals over male ones, but it’s even better when it comes from an all-female rock band. Unconsciously, I tend to associate the ability to play an instrument with musical talent. Anyway, all-female rock bands aren’t something I recall seeing a lot of, with ZONE being one of the more popular ones off the top of my head. I don’t tend to follow “mainstream” Japanese music much nowadays with the constant influx of music from anime OP/ED singles though (some of which may be mainstream), so I’m far from being the most knowledgeable person in this area.
In any case, I’m really starting to like Stereopony‘s music, which has already been featured in Bleach as the 17th ending theme prior to Gundam 00. For those following Bleach, “Hitohira no Hanabira” 「ヒトヒラのハナビラ」 was their first single and did fairly well on the Oricon Weekly Charts, peaking at 25th.
There was no new episode of Gundam 00 this week, but there was a Gundam 00 special that featured celebrities Tsuchida Teruyuki, Chihara Seiji, Handa Kento, Kyan Chiaki, and Noto Arisa. Warning, there’s a spoiler inside for future episodes.

Ali Al Saachez – whose body was half burned thanks to what happened four years ago – starts the battle by sending out a wave of GN Fangs, and Setsuna and Tieria find them faster than their predecessors.
Regene Regetta telepathically explains to Tieria that with GN particles as a catalyst, they can directly link with Veda due to quantum brain waves, and their age is controlled via genetic manipulation and nanomachines.
In a news conference, a Federation government spokesperson confirms that Gundams attacked the prison and that, in order to put an end to this terrorist organization, the government is dispatching A-LAWS.
