As previously mentioned in my really late season preview blog, I will be providing an update on what’s currently going on in my life very soon. But first, I did want to get the SOTW up as regardless of what my update will say, I do at least want to keep the blog active somewhat and post these out.

Whilst I am behind on my anime which is nothing new, I am keeping up to date with a few anime so far this season, one of them being The Rising of the Shield Hero. To be honest I have mentioned before I’m always sceptical of any new isekai anime but after a few episodes I have been told that it’s quite good and so I gave it a shot. So far so good and I’m enjoying it, and hence why the SOTW for its opening theme, I do love a rap in songs as well, especially the message of ‘rising up’ is certainly helping my mentality right now. Here is RISE by MADKID.

Having a week off this week, I assumed I’d be able to get this done earlier in the week. But alas, a dentist appointment and being called into work on an emergency shift happened, and so its going live midweek instead.

Either way, this week’s SOTW is by far the cutesiest song I’ve ever blogged as SOTW. It’s the one-episode 2nd ending to ‘Kaguya-sama’, used in episode 3. The ending animation is both delightful and stunning (with references to manga chapters that the anime hasn’t even reached yet), and Konomi Kohara has immediately become my favourite seiyuu ever. So you’d imagine it’s a pretty damn good song to boot.


Ending Edit:


I’ve unfortunately been really ill for the past few days and have been bedridden. It’s been a while since I’ve had to enjoy the wonders of my ceiling whilst listening to anime music for a while as I couldn’t really watch anything with my eyes burning. Oh well, it’s that time of the year again, so I’ll just warn everyone to be careful in these wintry times.

Whilst listening one eared to the music, because did I forget to mention that I also lost hearing in one ear? Yes it’s been a terrible week… hopefully I’ll make a full recovery of everything soon. Anyways whilst listening to some old themes I was reminded of an OVA that I really enjoyed when I was younger about two hospitalised 17 year olds finding love through meeting at the hospital.

I’ll be amazed if you guessed the anime from that, so I won’t keep the suspense any longer (not that there is any as you’ll have read the title of the SOTW) here is Aoi Koufuku by Nobuko OP for Looking up at the Half Moon (Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora). Maybe I was just feeling in a bit down in bed all day so the theme of the anime fit, but I do remember this anime fondly, so I hope you appreciate it too.

And this week’s SOTW will be the OP of the other series I’m watching this season.

As with ‘Go-Toubun’, I’ve read ‘Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai’ (or ‘Kaguya-sama: Love Is War’) since the first chapter was up online, and have since purchased every volume translated into English so far. So I was very hyped when I read it was getting an anime. The plot is simple, but effective. The comedy is timed perfectly in a lot of places. And the pace for the war between minds is fast but logical to follow, even if you have to suspend disbelief to follow it.

And all that’s just because of how well the core four (later five) characters are written, and how they perfectly bounce off of each other. Without a doubt, ‘Kaguya-sama’ is probably my favourite series to have been released within the past 5 years.

…and what a ridiculously catchy and fitting song to use as its OP theme.


Opening Edit:


Going to be a quick one from me this week as I have quite a lot on in my personal life. But don’t worry, I am still catching up on all my blogs and should hopefully have the new season one up within a week or so. This blog however, is my SOTW for the week.

So ‘that time I was reincarnated as a slime’ was never actually on my radar for anime to watch last season, partially because Isekai anime have received some pretty bad reputations and also the connotations of a slime. But I did save it for binging over Christmas as I give all isekai anime a chance and I’m so glad I did. Definitely one of the better isekai anime I’ve watched and thoroughly enjoyed binge watching it to its current point. So it’s unsurprising that my SOTW this week will indeed by the OP theme. Here is Nameless Story by Takuma Terashima.
