Introducing Ikimonogakari‘s latest single “Hotaru no Hikari” which is also featured as Naruto Shippuden’s 5th OP theme.
I’m featuring this single here because I thought the title track ‘Hotaru no Hikari‘ sounds rather catchy and it really IS miles better than Joe Inoue’s Closer which was Naruto Shippuden’s 4th OP theme. I like that the song has a very acoustic vibe to the arrangement and has a cute cheerful chorus to boot. It’s an upbeat pop-rock tune that’s fun to listen to. *sha-la-la*
The b-side track ‘Omoide no Sukima‘ on the other hand, is a slower laid back number, less catchy than the main track but has a similar acoustic arrangement. Unfortunately, the song does seem to drag on a bit as it sort of lack a strong melody.
