So, this week I wanted an Ajikan song. But, I didn’t want a run-of-the-mill mainstream shounen theme that you’ve come to expect out of me.

So I dug deeper.

‘Solanin’ was written for the live-action movie based on the manga of the same name. It’s a slice-of-life series that takes a look at the uncertainty of graduates’ lives, with emphasis on music. It also garnered a few award nominations when it was around, so it must have some quality to it.

I actually own the ‘Magic Disk’ album, with ‘Solanin’ as the extra track, but I’ve never actually questioned if it was a theme for anything before.

So, with this realisation, I’ll leave you with the song to listen to whilst I search around to read the series, as it looks pretty interesting.
