This week’s SOTW will be a song I haven’t been able to get out of my head recently.
Plus – rare for me – it’s contemporary!
It’s Naruto Shippuden’s 18th opening. Since last week, Lucretia posted a Naruto opening, I listened to them all again (some Naruto themes are easily some of my favourite songs in existence), but the playlist ended on this one.
I love Sukima Switch. I still think that despite FMA:B’s first opening being by YUI and being amazing, its third opening ‘Golden Time Lover’ was perfect. Completely faultless. And when I found they were doing a Shippuden opening, I knew it’d be great. And it is.
It’s much calmer than most songs I love, and it’s played during what I can only describe as a “recap arc” in the series, but the theme’s easily a standout of the series for me.
