[MUSIC] A Chinese rendition of the Cruel Angel's Thesis

Just now I was told when Eva was broadcast in China (excluding Hong Kong, for she was still England's colony in 1996), a Chinese version of Cruel Angel's Thesis was specifically written and sung for the show. I have no information whatsoever about this Chinese version. Have anyone come across this cover before? Thanks.

PS. Though not having heard this purported version before, intuition told me it wouldn't sound nice.

On a side note, a lot of the random Chinese pop music I hear sound startlingly similar to that.

I lol'd.
They just translated the lyrics and stuffed them into the song.
Even the translation is laughable

EX:
Like a cruel angel...
>>>>
美丽的天使在召唤你
Which means: The beautiful angel is summoning you.


Not just only that, the key was wayyyyyy off.
I can both read and speak chinese

MISTRANSLATION?! Surely not in eva?
Neon Genesis Evangelion (from the Greek Ευανγελιον, meaning "Gigantic robots piloted by mentally ill children")
Eva Facts:
-Gendo's final silenced line to Ritsuko was "I'm going to shoot you now."
-Nagisa Kaworu kills a kitten every time you masturbate.
-Kaji's first and last name was Kaji

God, Apparently you all have been discussing Q since November. Catching up on the discussion is harrowing.

ImageO M G...it kind of sounds like what happens when you play a song backwards.

Poor, poor China can never fully enjoy eva now with a beginning sequence like that.

...I think it would help if the singing was, you know, lower.

Since we're on the subject of adaptations of the OP, take a look at this: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OF5urVrPk4w)

By the way, there was a Korean one somewhere. I can't seem to remember why I heard it.

That's not that bad, in fact the lyrics are pretty good!
If that fandub was made with more 'professional' higher quality sound, it would be great.

Wow.
I'm so lucky to live in Hong Kong where we don't get any of this stuff.

I didn't find the song that earsplitting, actually. Just not satisfactory.
