    Default Ode to Arino (Parody of “Angry Video Game Nerd Theme” by Kyle Justin)

    (Mods-The forum says "Other written work", so I assume this is okay-if not, I'll move it to a blog post. In any case-there is a Game Freak/Pokemon episode of the show, so it is tangentially related at least)

    Notes:

    -Song is referring to this.
    -I put Teen because the source material is fairly explicit.
    -For the unaware, "Nihon" is the Japanese word for Japan (much like how "Deutschland" is the German word for Germany).

    Ode to Arino
    Parody of “Angry Video Game Nerd Theme” by Kyle Justin
    With new lyrics by Steven “PokePress” Reich


    He’s gonna take you back to the past,
    To play the classic games he #*! at.
    He’d rather fight a buffalo
    Than watch Dhalsim getting punched in his ear
    He’s gonna fall for every trap hole
    If you think he's sunk, I guess you're new here

    It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard,
    He’s the Nihon Nintendo nerd
    He’s the Nihon Konami Sega nerd
    He’s the Nihon video game nerd

    Don’t you turn off your TV
    He’s gonna make it-wait and see!
    Arino’s thumbs may hurt, he may break a sweat
    Although he’s cornered our guy will never back down
    He’ll grab a cooling pad, no he ain’t done yet
    Armed with his helpers he will take these games down

    It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard,
    He’s the Nihon Nintendo nerd
    He’s the Nihon SNK Capcom nerd
    He’s the Nihon video game nerd

    He brings the worst game of all time
    Pitiful annihilations blow my mind
    But when he starts each marathon, he says:
    Arino: GameCenter CX! Kacho-On!

    From eight on up to sixty-four bit
    This show is huge you know it’s a hit
    Where did he learn to swim?
    Why can’t he land a plane?
    What were they thinking when they gave him this game?
    His strategy’s always wrong
    Let’s help him get along
    Come on now ADs go do your thing!

    It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard,
    His game #*! so bad-hey watch out for that bird!
    He’s the genkiiest most retro gaming nerd
    He’s the Nihon Irem Namco Tecmo Sunsoft Hudson Soft
    Sony Neo Geo Falcom Quintet Data East Vic Tokai Game Freak Nintendo Nerd
    He’s the Nihon video game nerd

    Background: I wrote this song for an upcoming presentation in my Japanese night class (I'm planning on recording it and using it as part of a PowerPoint presentation).

    ::applauds::

    As a Game Center CX fan, I have to say you captured the essence of the show very well! (making me really wish a adaptation or even a better dub would come out here in the USA, not the terrible Kotaku dub)

    I thought the Kotaku dub was okay-perhaps the announcer was a bit too energetic-something that I think works better in Japanese than English.

    Basically, I got the song idea from a couple places. One, someone commented that an attempt to create an American version of the show would probably not work as well and involve a lot of swearing. Second, I needed something to present to my Japanese night class, so since I had this idea in my head, I decided to go with it. Also, I figured there was a decent correlation between the AVGN and GCCX fan bases.

    Maybe if they got the right player, it just might work
