  • [Japanese] Hello, everyone!

  • [Japanese] Welcome, it's TwoSet Violin.

  • Today...

  • [Japanese] Today...

  • [Japanese] Watch anime

  • - We will be watching... - Anime violin playing.

  • Yes, we'll be reviewing just how good of a job animes do in depicting and animating violin playing.

  • So it's something that we found often shows up in anime.

  • And we will be favorite internet violin detectives and rating them.

  • Duolingo bird!

  • What?

  • Alright, so we're gonna start from... some of the more dodgy ones.

  • Dodgy ones.

  • It's an anime called "Violinist of... hamol, hemlin?" - "Hemel"?

  • Let's see.

  • Wait, what...? Is that the violin?

  • They just froze the image, they didn't even bother moving it.

  • - It looks like a cello on the wrong side of the violin. - Yeah.

  • We're supposed to hold it on this side, but they put it on the right side.

  • Look at the hand!

  • - Dude is this... - It's not even...

  • - Look at that bow angle. - He's holding the tip of the bow or something.

  • Oh, we should get the violin.

  • Okay, so, before we even talk about the animation, the music they hear is in a violin register.

  • But it's a cello.

  • Cellos are like a good 1, 2 octaves lower.

  • On the fricking wrong side.

  • And then you can't see the frog, so you gotta hold the bow like this.

  • Unfortunately, we do not have a cello to demonstrate.

  • - That is so... - That's it.

  • - I guess it looks epic, but it's so... wrong. - It looks cool, but it's so impractical and wrong.

  • - And then also this thing. - Yeah.

  • - All the fingers are like... bent. - Up curled.

  • - Like... the joints are collapsed. - Yeah. And it's thumboh!

  • - The thumb is... - The thumb is on on the hair!

  • Yeah, and the thumb is also in front of all the fingers.

  • This is just the first one.

  • - It's the same shot... but faster. - It's the same shot!

  • Wow, piano and flames!

  • Dude, he's powering up with this music!

  • Where's the orchestra coming from...?

  • Whoa!

  • - The power of music, guys. - Yeah.

  • Amazing.

  • Just have one shot doing this. Oh, man.

  • Oh, Conan!

  • Dude, this one's old school.

  • This is my childhood.

  • Here we go.

  • Whoa... whoa... wow!

  • Why is the violin moving like this?

  • Oh, my God, that was so spastic!

  • It's meant to look like this... not....

  • Dude, that movement... her elbow!

  • Oh, there, there, let's go back.

  • It's like...

  • - There's no, like... and it goes like this, her bow's like this... and her bow's like this. - Yeah, like up there...

  • And she's shifting like up and down.

  • - Oh... nice try guys, what's the next part? - Oh man...let's move on.

  • Oh my God...!

  • So bad.

  • That is actually so true.

  • Yeah, I just...I just casually do that.

  • I'll be on the phone to Brett, when we're talking about like, video ideas, I'll be, "Oh wait...."

  • - "SiSo—B—G—ah, that was a B flat." - So dumb.

  • - Sorry, it just went down a bit. It's distracting me. - Sorry I just had to, just had to.

  • Violin solo?

  • [Japanese] - As expected!

  • Oh, Misaka-san.

  • Dude, it's on the fingerboard. Come on.

  • And her frogoh!

  • - Dude... - I think they just animate the movement, back and forth,

  • - Yeah. - Up and down, disregard the actual playing.

  • That's so budget!

  • - Oh no...! It's sliding...! - Dude, it's...!

  • Oh, oh, oh!

  • What is that?!

  • They should have just stuck to up and down!

  • It was like okay, then she went...

  • Purposefully like stabbed the bow front.

  • - And she started doing this kind of like... this motion. - Oh...

  • Guys, between the fingerboard and the bridge.

  • Rule number one!

  • Keep it straight!

  • Oh man... and the left hand didn't move at all.

  • The left hand didn't move.

  • Her left hand didn't move, they didn't match the...oh.

  • - Oh. D string... - Oh, looks alright.

  • Wrong string though.

  • - Oh, but she got the right string crossing. - Yeah.

  • - Nah, okay. - Oh, right position.

  • - Vibrato! - The vibrato!

  • Whoa! Upgrade!

  • Yes!

  • Okay.

  • - Alright. - Hey, it's getting better.

  • - Yeah, the bow's not right but it's getting better, like, the syncing. - Yeah.

  • - It's a little bit more legit. - There's a chin rest, at least.

  • Yeah.

  • - It's... - Yes.

  • - Between the fingerboard and the bridge, yes! - Oh, yeah!

  • - Perpendicular. - Wrong string...!

  • - Oh no, it's the right string! It's the right string! - A string, yes!

  • - They got the right string! - 3rd...

  • - 3rd position, 4th position. - Yeah!

  • Whoa.

  • - That's right, guys, violin stops all evil. - Dude!

  • Even the bow stroke, is like...

  • Her forearm opens...

  • Thank you.

  • Wow, amazing.

  • - That's my face right now, wow. - Yeah.

  • - Nice work! - Wow...

  • Princess PreCure.

  • - You... - "PreCured" our...

  • - Soul. - Yeah.

  • Alright, so the next one is, of course, "Your Lie in April".

  • This one is pretty legit.

  • [Japanese] "Your Lie in April".

  • Beautiful!

  • - Chords! Whoa...! The right finger pattern. - Wow! That's amazing!

  • - Oh...! - No wonder it's one of the most popular ones.

  • Because they got it right!

  • Spiccato [on] right part of the bow.

  • Retake as well.

  • - Oh! - Ooh.

  • E!

  • Hair flick!

  • Vibrato.

  • The body movement also works with the music.

  • It makes sense.

  • That's amazing.

  • And if you haven't yet seen it...

  • - Check out our parody, yes. - Yeah.

  • - Unfortunately it's blocked in some countries, because... - Even though it was a, technically a parody so it shouldn't be blocked...

  • And it wasn't even their music, we've recorded it ourselves.

  • To illustrate how legitimate the animation is...

  • - We did a comparison. - That's right.

  • Now we can't finish this without, of course, "Nodame Cantabile".

  • - Dude, that looks like CGII - Dude, it looks legit!

  • Whoa, the "duh"...

  • The first finger vibrato!

  • Violin looks CGI.

  • Oh, so handsome.

  • Edward Elgar.

  • - That Violin Sonata. - They even showed the piece.

  • The bow's changes looked a bit funny to me though.

  • - It's not exact but... it's got... - But it's pretty good.

  • - ... same, like, they're attempting to get the same notes and changes in strings. - Yeah.

  • - That looks right. - That looks legit.

  • - That was right... yeah the left hand... - The left hand... the left hand was like...

  • This one.

  • - The shiftoh, the B! - Ohh!

  • This is pretty good, guys.

  • Nodame is pretty good.

  • Wow, the last three are all pretty... pretty good.

  • "Your Lie in April" was still my favorite, though.

  • Well, it seems like if they at least just get the right string, and the...

  • - Bow changes. And the posture needs to look just... - ...bow changes, that's already like...

  • - Semi-legit. Yeah. - Yeah, semi-legit.

  • Doesn't need to be a cello on the wrong side.

  • Anyway, guys, what do you guys think of the anime?

  • Have you guys seen them?

  • Are there any other animes we haven't featured you'd like to see?

  • Check it out and subscribe and like the video.

  • Thank you. Practice.
