Yea… I just used a noun as a verb har…So do you listen to music when you build your Gundam models? If so, what do you usually listen to?
Personally, I would usually play the soundtrack of the series that the model I am working on is from or only to the opening/ending themes. You have so idea how many times I was “Flying in the Sky”, or playing the two main Domon themes when I was working on the MG Shining Gundam xD. This is just a way for me to get into the mood and feel for the model that I’m building. I think this also usually leads to a less stressful time with the model ^^;.
At other times, I would listen to something that makes me “chillax”… something with good beats, maybe a bit slow, even hip-hop or R&B will do too. Since building Gunpla takes a lot of patience, time, and focus, it is best to just relax and take it easy. One of my favorite chill song is “Thank You” by Home Made Kazoku (I’ve been listening to this song for who knows how long before I found out it was from Bleach… which I’ve never seen a single episode of). I cannot listen to stuff like Techno or Rock when I am building models! I tend to screw up easier or just lose my focus cuz I’ll be rockin’ it out! XD Depressing/Sad/Love songs/music also doesn’t help because then I’ll be thinking why I am building Gunpla instead of hanging out with a girl… or something like that.
Another chill song. Seriously, try building Gunpla when you are listening to this and everything will seem to go so smoothly! Nujabes is win! RIP man…
Lastly, something with a smooth Chinese note to it works for me too ^^. I need music while I build my Gundam models otherwise I might be bored quick or get sidetracked… which is strange, because I find myself building my models faster in silence o_o.
So what music do you recommend when building Gunpla?
Here’s a more relevant picture for the post. This one is a classic… :D
