This week’s SOTW has a backstory for being chosen:

For Christmas, a friend got me a 3 month subscription to Crunchyroll. I’ve never really looked at the service, because I work pretty much all the time, so don’t see a time I’d actually use it, but I thought “Since I’ve got it, I’ll binge watch Shokugeki no Soma”, since I love the manga so much.

Goddamn, that’s a good anime. I’m now up to date with it, and all of the OP and ED themes have been stuck in my head for a week and a half. Specifically, nano.RIPE have a great pair of ED themes, this one being my preferred song of choice. This is the ending to Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma: Ni no Sara, ‘Snowdrop’.

This SOTW is brought to you a week later by someone who’s been working throughout Christmas, and therefore was unable to put this up earlier. But hey, its here now.

And to celebrate Gen III Pokemon getting an inclusion in Pokemon Go, why not blog an Advanced Generation OP?

To be fair, whenever Rica Matsumoto gets her hands on a Pokemon theme, it usually turns out great (Spurt! and OK! come to mind straight away, as my personal favourites), and this is no exception.

So yeah, enjoy this whilst I work the New Year too.

Another song from 15 years ago for this week’s SOTW, because that’s just how I roll.

This one’s the ED to Witch Hunter Robin. If you look waaaaay back, like in the 100s of SOTWs, you’ll find I blogged the OP, and this is by the same singer (real name Chino Takayanagi). I always loved the themes to Witch Hunter Robin – the OP was always a cool song, but its Bana’s voice which makes both songs, and it’s on full display in this ED theme.

The light piano accompaniment until the crescendo in the chorus and the real emotion in her voice sells the song, which is why I still have this on my playlist to this day. So anyway, since I’m rambling, here’s the song:

This week I’m going all the way back to the original D.Gray-man anime. It’s 2nd OP was a badass theme, wasn’t it? Yeah… let’s blog that.

This week’s SOTW is yet another Yu-Gi-Oh! theme (because hey, I like Yu-Gi-Oh!), and it is the new ending theme to VRAINS.

I’m in two minds about this one. On the one hand, it’s a good song. On the other hand, Believe In Magic (the 1st ending) is better, in my opinion. But, again, on the other hand, I had 24 episodes of Believe In Magic and I got tired of it, so I welcome the change.

To summarise: it’s a decent theme. Not the best YGO! theme but certainly not the worst.
