I went to a talk on virtual reality and its future recently as a member of my work’s technology department. It was very interesting and I liked the topics like gaming, uses for various real life training, sporting events etc. One thing I did have a long chat with one of the presenters about is the gaming aspect and the ‘risk’ of people spending too much time in that world and perhaps not ever coming out.

That was my cue to remember Yuuki from SAO, I won’t spoil anything if you haven’t seen it, but let’s just say SAO and VR was the only way Yuuki could’ve ‘lived’. As much as SAO had narrative issues in the earlier parts, it’s gotten much better and I really enjoyed the movie and am also looking forward to next season.

In any case because of that, I remembered how much I enjoyed the opening that played during that Arc and thought this would be a great SOTW. Here is Courage by Aoi Eir.


Feels like it’s been a while since I blogged a song of the same season, think the last one may have been Mahoutsukai. So here is probably my favourite theme of this season, until another one grows enough on me for a SOTW. This particular song also came to my attention because I was listening to a lot of GARNiDELiA as evidenced by my last SOTW, so I thought I will continue that ‘theme’, if you will. You might’ve guessed what it is by now, here is Error by GARNiDELiA.

As Raven is very busy working, I’ve taken up the liberty to do two weeks in a row and cover for him so he’s only a few days late rather than over a week.

Lately I’ve finally had a tiny bit of free time so I’ve been looking back at some old anime that I’ve missed for whatever reason but want to have a look now. Like Shirobako which I marathon’d over Christmas, another one I remember is Shangri-la which was about 8 years ago when I was 16, and back then anything political in anime didn’t interest me in the slightest.

However I’d say growing up has changed me, so once I get a holiday I feel I might marathon this too. But what actually drew me to it was the OP. I’d say I’m a fan of May’n so I’ll do her some justice and look to bring some of her songs to my SOTWs. To start, here is Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare by May’n.

I couldn’t find a full song on youtube so here’s the opening cut version, but I have included below a link to the full PV on another website.


Me? So late on an SOTW? Did something go wrong? Yes indeed it did. I was meant to return home last Sunday morning, unfortunately I only just arrived back earlier today. Long story short, I fell ill from a chest infection and had a high fever for three straight days before it started getting better. As much as I hate giving myself excuses, this one’s at least a reasonable one.

Either way, I had an SOTW in mind before I was ill, when I was enjoying my holiday at Karaoke, because that’s the place to be when you’re in any eastern-asian country. I’ve actually mentioned this before all the way back in SOTW 4, when I blogged Summer Song by Yui, that this is one of the few Japanese songs I’ve memorised and so can sing at Karaoke even with being unable to read the Japanese lyrics. So I think it’s a great song to bring to my SOTW list. Here’s a fairly old song, the fifth, I believe, OP of BLEACH, Rolling Star by Yui.

With the new season already underway my season preview blog is a couple of days away. It’s written, i just need to get some pictures and finalise what I want to blog, but I’m pretty sure on the new two anime I’m looking at. Either way, Working season 3 is starting and because of that I’m yet again reminded of Working OPs. And since without realising I already blogged the first OP just 4 weeks ago, I’m going to do the second season’s OP, Coolish Walk, less catchy as the first in my opinion but still memorable and fun. Here is Coolish Walk by Kana Asumi, Eri Kitamura and Saki Fujita.
