This song is probably not as well-known as the first opening theme for the anime, which was also my favourite as well, but still a great song. I wanted a bit of a pickup song as I’ve had a really terrible day, ironic that I went with Shigatsu, but I did remember that the second OP had a really upbeat melody so I decided to listen to this again. Then I nearly ended up ‘cutting onions’, if you know what I mean, but strangely it did make me feel better so who knew. Here is Nanairo Symphony by coalamode.

I can’t remember if I mentioned before but I play a mobile gatcha game called Dragalia Lost. How does this relate to anything? Well the main singer of songs in Dragalia Lost is Daoko and as I’ve been listening to a lot of Dragalia Daoko songs on Youtube the recommended videos also turn into Daoko songs and I gave this one a listen without knowing what it came from. I instantly loved the song and also found out it’s from Fireworks, so now I’ve got to get myself the BluRay at some point so I can finally watch it. I had it on my to watch list until people told me it was bad, but good music helps so I think I will give it a try. But in any case, enjoy, Uchiage Hanabi by Daoko x Kenshi Yonezu.

Quick post this week, as I’m working 42 hours and barely have time to sleep.

This is Black Clover’s 8th ending, and whilst the song has grown on me massively, I feel even the 2nd version of the ending animation is… how should I say it… calm and stationary?

Either way, the song’s stuck in my head, and that’s what this post series is about, so here it is:

Ending Edit (Version 1):

I was cleaning out some of my stuff recently as I skipped the spring clean and decided to do some summer cleaning. I came across a few anime CDs I bought ages ago and reminded me of some great songs that I felt compelled to purchase and have them shipped from Japan. One of them is ‘Girls Dead Monster’ album, Keep The Beats. Was really enjoyable music from the band and as much as the ending of the anime was a bit meh, they had some great music.

The first song on the CD, Crow Song, was more than enough to make me love the band, so a bit of a throwback, here is Crow Song (Yui Version) by Girls Dead Monster.

Update: Probably not surprising, I’m still behind on last season and slowly catching up with that. Luckily there hasn’t been that many this season I want to see, but there’s a few, sadly, I just have no time. I’m planning to catch up with last season first and then see if I can find some time to watch some from this season. But in terms of blogging, I just don’t know anymore, juggling basically two jobs and an, at least I’d like to think, active social life, makes this very difficult. I will have a rethink, but for now at least I’ll leave it at that.

This week’s SOTW is the ending equivalent to my last SOTW’s opening.

I’ve been loving En’en no Shouboutai’s anime. The animation really is top quality, and you can tell they’ve poured a lot into this series. That being said, the OP/ED animations aren’t slouches either, with the prime example being this week’s SOTW.

This ED is amazing, and easily my favourite currently-airing ED theme (although, since the animation upgrade, Black Clover’s ED 8 has grown on me a lot). The animation stars Company 8’s resident sister, Iris, and her backstory, which we’ll get to in the anime pretty soon. The animation starts on a happy note with the upbeat pre-verse melody, but when that bridge comes in – man, when that bridge comes in. That’s an excellent shift in tone, with some great art to match it.

Anyway, I’m now rambling. Here’s the video:
