Uragiri no Yuuyake by THEATRE BROOK

Now, you might have noticed, some time back, Lucretia doing a blog on Durarara!!’s second opening, Complication by ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D, who, apart from having terrible grammar, make good music. In all honesty, she struggled to decide whether it would be Complication or this song, the song that will be this week’s SOTW.

I’ve only recently started Durarara!! after I saw that it had been dubbed, so I went for it at the continuous pressured coaxing of Lucretia, who kept drilling the image in my head of an amazing anime. Truth be told, she couldn’t be more correct. I genuinely love this anime, which is a rare occurrence for me, as I’ve only ever loved, at most, 3 others.

What makes this anime amazing, but aren’t the only reason, are the themes. In particular, the first ending is brilliant, and has been parodied so much on youtube with other anime, that I always do enjoy to watch various attempts to recreate the magic. But I’m moving away from the point. The theme that stands out the most is the first one you hear when watching, Uragiri no Yuuyake – the first opening. I can’t really put into words why I enjoy this so much, so I’ll just leave it to you, the readers (or listeners in this case), to judge for yourselves.

I know, right?
