Mash-Up Monday: Shakugan no Shana and the Black Knight

It’s that time again, guys! Put on those headphones and crank up that volume as we kick the week off with Mash-Up Monday!

Today, we highlight a very unique mash-up, put together by the likes of Shadowlink4321, who’s renowned for both machinimation and music on YouTube. The two mash-ups featured today are both from the same pair of songs!

Those who follow the works of Bentley Jones just might recognize one of the two songs! He has covered one of the opening themes to the anime Shakugan no Shana, named Joint, on his “TRANS//LATION 2” album. Presented in its original form, Joint is thrown together with Sonic and the Black Knight‘s final boss theme: With Me.

However, there’s a catch! As I’ve mentioned, there are two mash-ups here… And that’s exactly it! The first version of Joint With Me is in fact With Me‘s vocals added to Joint‘s melody, and the second version (found after the jump!) highlights Joint‘s vocals (in Japanese) through With Me‘s background music!

  1. very good mashups….i like the second one better…im a sucker for japanese vocals

    1. I prefer it better too, but the english versoin is very close to equal with the japanese version

  2. Never thought I’d see the day where Shana and Sonic were in the same news article– pretty much anywhere. Being a fan of Shakugan no Shana, Mami Kawada, and JOINT. I’d have to say that her vocals accompanying With Me, work the best.

    Though they are both awesome…I’m a biased Shana-tard, what can I say?
