I like it (mainly because I'll never not love Cruel Angel's Thesis), but I don't like the singer's pitchiness and added autotune. And minor gripe, but the the line where she says "This was all a Cruel Angel's Thesis from the start" or whatever gave me ending credits vibes or something. Kinda hard to describe.

Oh, and what's up the video just panning to the characters a lot in repetition?

This version was ok, not the best, but certainly not horrific. It's also not worth downloading however, as the autotune does take away from it considerably, as it sounds unnatural. Also, the visuals were a bit weak as RadicalRandy had sort of mentioned the repetition.

I much prefer this English version. The words have been changed around a bit (to make it less of a mouthful to shout out in sentence, or just more grammatically correct), and it does flow much better than the direct translation does, which I think is what AmaLee used. Also, the visuals are from the show and EoE, and maybe something from Death & Rebirth.

I love that version, it's performed really well and the lyrics flow really well (save for one or two lines where they try to rhyme a bit too much). When I was about 14 and before I actually knew anything about this show (or anime, really) I thought that it was an official English version lol
