Oh yes, it's really a fanmix. 8D I do make things aside from icons once in a blue moon. Fffff, I don't even know why I haven't made any icons from Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro yet. I love the fandom to death and I have so much awesome shit I could color. :|a

Anyways, old!fanmix is a bit old. I've been working on this baby for ... over a year now, I think. Yeah, that sounds about right. It's been a slow process because this is like the-pairing-that-was-but-not-really, and Neuro's personality really doesn't lend itself to love songs. And even if it did, I'm not sure Yako would know what to do with that, rofl. At the same time, filling this mix with angry alterna-rock would have sent me cavorting to the nearest Hot Topic to buy black eyeliner and wrist warmers. So finding a balance between love songs and emo songs proved considerably challenging, thus the length of this project. (Ironically, I did indeed use an A.F.I. song. /facewall.) However you categorize Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro as a manga (and anime), it has a clear (if twisted) sense of humor. I tried to maintain the sadistic lightheartedness.

What I ended up with here is something that seems distinctly indie to me. The overall feel of the fanmix flits somewhere between willful self infliction and the realization of exploitation. There's no denying that Yako realizes the way Neuro takes advantage of her, yet when it comes down to it, she doesn't object. Neuro and Yako exist in a symbiotic relationship to each other, even though it seems one-sided at times. 'Love' is not a word I prefer to use when describing this pair, thus the title of the fanmix. 'Love' is too simplistic and incorrect an idea for the complicated relationship between Neuro and Yako. I really tried to capture every angle with them.

I could babble forever, but I'll stop myself now. ^^ I hope everyone enjoys this~~
