2009 is over. This was quite the year! For my end of the year retrospective, I’ve gathered up my personal top 10 NicoVideos from the past year.
Although Bad Apple didn’t even warrant a real entry from me this year (it did get a twitter update however), it was pretty much the biggest video of this year. I give it 10 for being awesome, but way overplayed.
The Training-type MADs were all the rage, but this one closed the book on them. It was perfect. If you aren’t an Eva fan, then I apologize.
2009 saw the birth of Hammer Day, which is the 11th of every single month. This was the last by the original Hammer Guy and still the best IMHO.
K-ON! was another big part of 2009, and this was the MAD that I couldn’t turn off. It’s just too brilliant.
I personally started watching Haruhi this year, so when I first saw this video, I had no idea who any of these people were (but I loved the video). Now, at the end of 2009, I have seen everything and am anxiously awaiting the movie.
The Family Mart chime remix fad was started by this video. I couldn’t stop listening to it. Simple and shows you a little bit of how to use a KORG to make amazing music.
The last しも (Shimo) medley video practically introduced me to NicoNicoDouga and essentially prompted me to start this blog. This one, which came out in June, was more like a review of my time on NicoNicoDouga. The joy was unspeakable, and so this takes #2.
The 韃靼海峡 (Dattan Kaikyou) based MADs were excellent before they started getting deleted. Totally would have made the top 10 if not for that.

The fun never ends. This remix of Cirno’s Perfect Math Class is flipping amazing. ジョン・カビラ (Jon Kapira) of Winning Eleven lends his voice to this one, and the results are just beyond words.

I am unable to ignore this ネタ (neta) anymore. Basically, you take the ending to an anime called ファイト一発!充電ちゃん!! (Faito ippatsu! Juuden-chan!!) about girls who are like electrical equipment (yeah, I know)…
…AND THEN you just move into the realm of the absurd…
Go check out ○○がトレーニング if you like what you see.
UPDATE: They just keep coming, so I’ll just keep putting the good ones after the jump.

It’s here. After a slew of imitators, the true successor to the ニコニコ流星群 is here. Yes, my friends, right now, NicoDou is celebrating the release of the next megamix. 七色のニコニコ動画 (Nanairo no NicoNicoDouga) is here.
This is my first real megamix since getting into NicoDou hardcore. I love the 流星群, since that gave me the jump start I needed to get into in the first place, but this one… It is like a summary of my last year of NicoLife. I’ve featured a number of these songs on the blog over the last year, although not all of them! Can you believe that this blog will be one whole year old in just over 2 months?! WTF.
I have a list of the songs after the jump, minus the HEROES section (the section of chaos from 9:40 to 11:10) since really you could just go to the 流星群 for those songs. If you are a experienced ニコ厨 (NicoChuu), listen to it before you check the list below. See how many you recognize! If you are new to NicoDou, this is a great way to catch up! XD
(BTW, as for the English name, I would call it Rainbow Colored NicoNicoDouga if I were in charge, but a few places seem to already be translating it as “7 Colors of Nico Nico Douga.” I hate translation. 日本語バンザイ！ Oh, and as always, if you don’t have a NicoDou account, why not?!)

I can’t stop listening to this song. Basically, some one did a metal arrangement for チルノのパーフェクトさんすう教室. This version is a vocal version done by Gero. It’s amazing. I really can’t stop listening to it. Makes we want to do this in karaoke so bad. XD
More metal Ⅸ after the jump.

Today is this month’s Hammer Day. The entry for this month is an amazing reprise of ナイト・オブ・ナイツ. But, the comment says it will be the last one. This episode even is pretty nostalgic feeling, as it is a better version of the first one, so it could be true. The Hammer is a tricky one, so it is hard to say for sure. There is even talk of a Second Generation of Hammer. I guess we can only tell for sure on June 11th…
If you aren’t familiar with Hammer Day, it is the 11th of every month. On Hammer Day, there is a new Hammer video that is uploaded. The entries up until now are after the jump.

Man, I dunno what is in the air recently, but there is a lot of チルノ (Chiruno) videos going around recently. Figured I’d update ya’ll on some of them, after the jump! The one above seems to be from a non-IOSYS version of the チルノ song, おてんば恋娘 (otemba koimusume). The thing that is the clincher on this one is that チルミル is a baby formula with DHA, to make them smarter… pimped by Cirno, known to be the バカ⑨ of the 東方 universe. Then there is something about her eating frogs… Don’t make me explain everything! XD (Okay, that’s based on the whole things where she freezes frogs when she’s bored… there, I’m done.)

A new IOSYS arrangement CD is coming out on the 8th! And that can only mean one thing! A new promotional video! This one is about the hellishly ultimate 焼肉 (yakiniku) restaurant, based on the song 死体旅行 ～ Be of good cheer!. The CD is called 東方超都魔転 (Touhou Choutomatten). The English title is “Toho just a moment!” Until I read that, I didn’t get the pun. ><;
Not much to say about this one... probably will take me a few weeks to process all the jokes. Poor チルノ (Chiruno) gets melted at one point. ;;

Once again, Miko shows us he awesome vocal skills. I love this song already. Now, if I can just figure out how to order it from the US… Hmmmm…
