For this week’s SOTW I’m going to take you back more than 6 years ago to the summer season of 2009. It was about the time when I decided to fully ‘go into’ anime and was just looking around for things to watch. I found Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S and, partially thanks to the name, it looked interesting at the time and it wasn’t bad. The music was quite good from it too. I don’t think I quite got the story back then, and if I’m honest, looking back I still don’t think I understand it fully. After reading a bit around it i think it was one of those anime that I needed to have some background knowledge in or I’d get lost. Not quite on the level of Mekakucity Actors, but similar to that.

Either way though, it was one of my first series and I felt it was still a nice introduction to the industry. And I’m sure I remember it being one of the better animated series in that season, although someone will prove me wrong probably. Anyways, getting to my point, here is Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S’s OP, Phosphorus by Eufonius, a band that at the time I didn’t realise but would become one of my favourites along with the likes of Savage Genius.
