Now with the winter season swiftly approaching its end, I thought I should mention at least one of the songs this season that I really liked. And I may do more in the coming SOTWs for me as there were a few songs that really caught my attention this season. My favourite song this season probably has to be a song by Nano. Which is of course the ending theme to Mahou Sensou, Born to be.


It’s a shame I didn’t like the anime that much, especially with that ending but whatever. With my favourite songs I still want to give you the lyrics so please see below:

Oh Yeah!

They bring me down
All the world is stereotypical
Playing out rules, but act out another
Look now, you thought you had me by the upper-hand
But I see through the face you’ve covered cynical

Four, unleash the beast that lies inside of you
Three, take on the fire that burns in front of you
Two, let out the fear you feel surrounding you
One, become the soul that you were born to be

Tatoe ima made ikita sutoratejii wo miushinatte mo (It’s time now)
Handoru wo kitte abareru yume no mama tsukisusume
Thrill no nai jinsei ni idomu nara
Imi mo nai kanjou wo idaku nara
Kakugo wo kimete ikundarou
Jibun jishin wo BREAK AWAY

Subete wo ubawareru unmei nara
Nani wo shinjite ikite ikunda
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

Kako no kizu wo osoreru nara
Mirai sae mo suteru you na mon da
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!

Tsumi no ishiki wo suteru tame ni
Gamushara ni hashiridashita
Mujun shita kireigoto narabete mo
Imasara imi mo nai darou?

“Gisei wa jibun dake de ii” nante
Seigi no kamen wo kabuttatte
Uwabe no HIIROO ni nare ya shinai
Sonna no jikan no muda darou?

Whatever your life throws at you, take it head on
Gotta prove yourself that this is how it goes
Whatever you choose to aim for, make or break it
Gotta live today like it could by your last

Tatoe kono saki erabu michi ga wakaranakute mo (It’s alright)
Highway wo tobashite takanaru kodou no mama oikoshite ike
Speed no nai genjitsu ni makeru nara
Ate mo nai unmei wo egaku nara
Jinsei wo tsukande ikundarou
Jibun jishin wo lead the way

Bokura no ushinawareru jikan no naka
Nani wo kanji omoidasu no?
Pray your heart to stay
So much you could find to live for

Hibi no mukui wa chiisakute mo
Ima ni makase aruite ikeba
Then you’ll find the way
This is the day

Subete wo ubawareru unmei nara
Nani wo shinjite ikite ikunda
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

Kako no kizu wo osoreru nara
Mirai sae mo suteru you na mon da
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!

Several other songs I liked this season that deserve a mention from me are the OP and ED for Mikakunin de Shinkoukei, I found that anime to be extremely fun and probably one of my favourites this season. Also I love some of the BGM used in Kill la KIll namely ‘Before my body is dry’ and ‘Blumenkranz’. Another one is ‘Fool the World’ by Chihara Minori, not watched the anime associated, but I liked Chihara so I thought I’d see how the song is and liked it. Those are the more notable mentions, there are others I liked but only struck me as being good. So my next SOTWs will probably be these or some of the others I haven’t mentioned, unless I think of anything more fitting when the time comes.
