Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ New Intro and Outro themes
With the time skip, a new setting, an incredible growth spurt and the change of OP and ED themes, I supposed that Phantom is heading into the final arc or finale if you like. It’s going to be exciting to see what’s going to happen to our trio of assassins. Are they going to kill each other? To be honest, the only person I want to see biting the dust is grrrr…. the totally disgusting SM. Oh please be bloody gone by series end.
I must say I quite like the new intro and outro visuals. I think they are very fitting for the final part of the series as it is heading towards its conclusion. Having said that, the 1st OP still stands as my all time favourite…to me it’s really unbeatable with it’s epic theme and awesome visuals.
Kokia and ALI Project switch places with their theme contributions this time round. ALI Project now performs the new OP song ‘Senritsu no Kodomotachi‘ while Kokia contributed the new ED theme ‘Transparent‘. Well, what can I say about ALI Project’s song…I guess it’s more tolerable than the painful 1st Phantom ED. But then again, most of their recent anime contributions sound alike which annoys me somewhat. Kokia still trounced and came out on top with her ED song. Needless to say, I love ‘Transparent’ along with it’s ED visuals…perfect match. Can’t wait to get hold of the full blown ED Single.
In the meantime, here are the anime clips of Phantom’s new OP and ED themes.
