Have to say, this is yet another one of those “woke me up” SOTW’s, although it has been in my mind recently.
The official Yu-Gi-Oh! youtube channel’s been releasing all the opening and ending themes, both Japanese and English, and I went through them because nostalgia.
Not all are up there yet, but there are some good ones. Setsubou no FREESIA, OVERLAP, 99% (which for some reason has like 6 different versions) and this. I think this is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! theme I fell in love with. Don’t get me wrong, VOICE by CLOUD is great, and the drum intro’s awesome, but it never struck me as an amazing theme.
This one, however, is. The bassline, the vocals, the fact there’s just enough english in there to sing along with when you’re 14 and don’t know much Japanese. Yeah, that nostalgia hits hard, doesn’t it?
