Damn, YouTube works fast. :P

Awesome cover of the song, for the record. Honestly, this sounds better than the original song. :thumbup:

I love PelleK. Guy's got a real strong voice. I loved his cover of 'Unravel' from Tokyo Ghoul. This is fantastic, too. Thanks for posting.

I've been really enjoying this version of the Super opening the past couple of days. I really like how Pellek begins his cover with the chorus acapella. I listened to the official version after this cover, and I just don't enjoy it as much. I really didn't care for the song much at all until I heard this. The animation was enjoyable, but not so much with the vocals. Pellek also covers a lot of other anime songs, and mainstream songs.

Neat. I bet an actual Japanese native would find his voice hilarious though.

I wouldn't say he has an American accent. He's definitely got a Norwegian accent.

I know, right? That's actually the first song I heard by him. He completely blew me away with his talent and vocal range.

I've never actually heard the original, but I do like PelleK's version. I'll probably be disappointed upon hearing the original version.

He also sang Cha-la Head-cha-la in dual Japanese and English. It's an more literal translation, tho, and doesn't really fit the flow well sadly.

And he also sang Hunting High and Low by Stratovarious, which was ripped off by Kenji Yamamoto in DBZ: Budokai as the song Challengers.

Shit, so good! And the dude's norwegian! That's so random and unexpected considering there's so few anime fans in norway, yet much less db fans!

Pretty sure he covers whatever a majority of his subscribers ask of him. Just so happens most of his subscribers are anime fans.

I recall a video where he was on a trip to China expecting to see anime. lol.

Naw, he watches anime (I dunno how much, tho). He just might not be a super nerd over them. You like enjoy something without feeling the need to research it.
