Chance Triangle/Pop Session





Kisaragi Akiba

Reika

Akari

Yuki

Nozomi

I've been meaning to create a thread dedicated to what I personally consider, the greatest 13 episode series of all time, but something always got in the way. Mostly time. XD nao I'll save time by posting my old review of it:

---

Chance Pop Session. Where do I start? This anime was one of the very few that touched me with it's story about starting from the bottom, then rising all the way to the very top. The art is unique and the English voice acting is perfect. While the Japanese seiyuu are amazing, top notch English voice actresses like Shelley-Black, Monica Rial, Christine Auten, Hilary Haag, Kelli Cousins, (and my all time favorite...) Tiffany Grant have done wonderfully to bring their girls to life. The English VAs never came up short and really nailed who they were playing. ADVFilms has been gifted with the best in voice acting (now they're working for FUNimation). Chasing dreams and being inspired is never cliche, it's what normal people face everyday and it's wonderful to see an individual complete his/her mission. Chance Pop (Triangle) Session is that story.

The story is about three girls, each one comes from a different background and lifestyle. They all attend a concert which features blond bombshell/singing sensation Reika. Reika is one hell of a singer from watching the first episode, it's no wonder the girls became inspired. All three girls, now inspired by the beautiful blond, have set a goal to become singers. First we have: Akari, the easy going polite girl who sings like an angel, always had the talent and never showcased it until now. Second, Yuki: Yuki started out as a crew member for Reika's concert. She works several jobs, saving up for her chance at singing. Third, Nozomi: Nozomi comes from a rich family with over-protective parents, but her obsession for Reika has given her a push to become singer as well.

All three girls eventually overcome the odds and end up becoming R3, a trio group. However, there's a connection between the three and many road blocks they must overcome to succeed. In addition to their story, the touching and powerful moments between strict, but intelligent manager Kisaragi Akiba and adopted daughter (who turns out to be Reika) are beautiful to watch.

The music is amazing. People have complained that the same song repeats itself, however I feel that each song can be heard a million times but they never grow old. The entire Chance Pop Session soundtrack was stuck in my head for a long time; can't say that about most anime soundtracks. And I don't care what anyone says, "Priority" is one of the greatest J-POP songs of all time.

This is a story about overcoming the hard life reality and working hard to achieve your goals. Just good old anime storytelling of overcoming the odds and singing, singing, SINGING to your hearts content!

Here is the first episode on YouTube, with the rest on animenetwork's playlist.

(no longer available, sadly)

Buy it on DVD from Amazon. You'll love it almost as much as I did. :)

I watched an episode of this on one of my first Newtype sampler discs. Good times. Gooood times. God I miss them. the episode was good, nice little slice of life with very wonderful characters. I might give it a shot someday when I get a few other series in my collection out of the way

Holy crap, I actually got a bump for this thread! There aren't a lot of fans of Chance Pop Session in the world, hopefully you get inspired by it the same way I did. It's one of the all time greats and nobody knows about. Get a hold of one of the old box sets (the latest slimpak is beautiful, utilizing Reika's red themed colors) and watch the rest, it gets better.

I'm uploading the entire soundtrack of the anime Chance Pop Session! Starting with track 01, "Pure Blue". Sung by the seiyuu of Akari, Yuki and Nozomi of "R3". My favorite 13 episode anime ever.

Chance Pop Session (OST) - Track 01 - Pure Blue


Music from the hit Japanese animated anime series, Chance Pop Session. Also known as Chance Triangle Session. This is track 01 of the album titled "Pure Blue" by Mayumi Iizuka, Atsuko Enomoto and Maria Yamamoto.

Lyrics and English translation for "Pure Blue":

Spoiler:
Harukana sora ni ukabu
Namae mo nai aoi hoshi
Kitto dareka ga mitsuketekureru to
Kyoumo touko hikari o hanatsu

It floats in a distant sky
A blue star without even a name
Someone will definitely find it
It releases its light from
afar again today

Itsuka meguriau hito
Ima wa doko ni irunokana?
Hontou wa soba ni
Irukamo shirenai

The person I will meet someday
Where is he right now?
Is he really by my side
That's where he might be

Mimi o sumasu
Kokoro no aitsu

I will listen for
Him in my heart

Konna hitoribocchi o aishite
Tsuyoku dakishimete hoshii
Mienai kyori wa atodoredake

I love this kind of being alone
I want you to hold me tight
I can't see how much farther it is

Donna samishii yoru mo koete
Anata no tokoro made
Watashi wa hoshi no matataki

Overcome any kind of lonely night
Until I reach you
I am the twinkle of a star

Ooh yeah, we wanna sing with you
Ooh yeah, we wanna sing with you

Ooh yeah, we wanna sing with you
Ooh yeah, we wanna sing with you

Yume miteiru dake dato
Tomodachi wa waraukeredo
Shinji nakereba nani mo umarenai
Sorede iito kokoro ga iiyuyo

Because I'm only dreaming
So my friends all laugh
If you don't believe, then nothing
can come to be
My heart tells me thats alright

Motto watashi o suki de irareru
Ananta ni kanarasu aieru
Ude o nobaseba ato dore dake?

Like me even more
I'll meet the you that will
If I put out my arms, how much
farther will it be?

Donna samishii yoru mo koete
Anata no tokoro made
Watashi wa hoshi no matataki
Watashi wa hoshi no matataki

Overcome any kind of lonely night
Until I reach you
I am the twinkle of a star
I am the twinkle of a star

I believe your love, I believe your love
I believe your love, I believe your love

I will believe your love, I will believe your love
I will believe your love, I will believe your love

Konna hitoribocchi o aishite
Tsuyoku dakushimete hoshii
Mienai kyori wa atodoredake

I love this kind of being alone
I want you to hold me tight
I can't see how much farther it is

Donna samishii yoru mo koete
Anata no tokoro made
Watashi wa hoshi no matataki
Watashi wa hoshi no matataki

Overcome any kind of lonely night
Until I reach you
I am the twinkle of a star
I am the twinkle of a star

Chance Pop Session (OST) - Track 02 - Priority

This is track 02 of the album titled "Priority" by Mariko Konda.

Lyrics and English translation for "Priority":

Spoiler:
She'll sing for you, Ooo

She'll sing for you, Ooo

Kuchibiru ga jireru kyori
I wanna do, I wanna kiss, I don't know
Samishisa no yurushitemo
Unebore made wa yurusenai

Close enough for my lips
to get irritated
I wanna do, I wanna kiss, I don't know
Even if I forgive this loneliness
I won't forgive the conceitedness

Muboubi na kokoro shika
Aisenai kuse ni
Watashi no subete kaerareru to yuuno?

Only a defenseless heart
Can you love
Are you saying you'll
change all of me?

Nanimo iwasenai
Nanimo ataenai
Nanimo shitagawanai
(Don't touch my heart)

Won't let you say anything
Won't give you anything
Won't listen to anything you say
(Don't touch my heart)

Jibun mamoru no wa
Jibun dake shika inai
Saigo ni nokoru mono wa
anata jyanai, yes

The only one who protects me
Is only me
The thing that lasts at the end,
it isn't you, yes

Betsu na hana mitsukereba
I wanna do, I wanna kiss,
don't you know?
Kareru made asondara
Omoide sai mo kesu deshyou

If you find a different flower
I wanna do, I wanna kiss,
don't you know?
If I play until I faint
It should erase even memories

Eien no yakusoku mo setsuna
no maboroshi
Shinjiteite mo
Sukuwarenai real

The promise of forever is
just a fleeting illusion
Even if I believe
I won't be saved, real

Nanimo ubaenai
Nanimo iyasenai
Nanimo mukuwarenai
(Don't touch my heart)

Can't take anything away
Can't heal anything
Can't be requited
(Don't touch my heart)

Dareka kizutsukete
Dareka uragiru kedo
Ichiban daijina no wa anata jyanai, yes

Hurting someone
Betraying someone, but
The most important thing isn't you, yes

Nanimo iwasenai
Nanimo ataenai
Nanimo shitagawanai
(Don't touch my heart)

Won't let you say anything
Won't give you anything
Won't listen to anything you say
(Don't touch my heart)

Jibun mamoru no wa
Jibun dake shika inai
Saigo ni nokoru mono wa
anata jyanai, yes
Anata jyanai

The only one who protects me
Is only me
The thing that lasts at the end,
it isn't you, yes
Isn't you
