♡ gitaroo man ♡
✧ intro ✧
i love gitaroo man sooooo much. the story is short and sweet and the characters are so charming and the art style is so good! not to mention the amazing OST. just listen to the legendary theme. the intro song is soft machine by the band COIL, who also did the whole soundtrack! they remind me a lot of the pillows. in fact, gitaroo man is the game version of FLCL (imo). u1 is a very sad sap but a relatable character in that typical coming-of-age way and i love his design as gitaroo man!! the art was done by the amazing Kotaro Umeji (✧ω✧)
gitaroo man is a rhythm game, published by koei for the playstation 2 in 2001. a port for the playstation portable, called gitaroo man lives! came out in 2006. this game is very expensive to buy on ebay.
