DuRaRaRa!! ED2 Single – Butterfly by ON/OFF

Music Post!

Pop twins Naoya and Kazuya Sakamoto return with ON/OFF’s 5th studio single featuring the 2nd outro theme to TV anime Durarara!!

CD Title: Butterfly デュラララ!!盤
Artist(s): ON/OFF
Release Date: 9-Jun-2010

I haven’t heard anything from ON/OFF since their last single ‘Hana Kagari‘ back in March of 2009. Neither did I check out their debut album called ‘Legend of Twins I: Futago Densetsu’ which was released last April. Anyway, the twins are back with their 2nd anime series tie-in to date and this time they performed Durarara!!’s 2nd ED theme ‘Butterfly‘ which is also the title of their new single. Having heard the titular track and the B-side filler called ‘Connection‘, I can say it is miles better than what they contributed to ‘Vampire Knight S1 and S2’ combined.

As to which of DRRR!!’s EDs I like better, I think both songs fitted their respective parts well. Yuya’s ‘Trust Me‘ has that catcy RnB groove whereas ON/OFF’s ‘Butterfly’ has a more edgier pop-rock sound to send the anime off to its climatic conclusion (i.e judging from what the previous couple of episodes had been building up to).  That said, I prefer ‘Butterfly’ seemingly because the full song totally rocks and the piano interlude is just awesome, adding that little extra punch to the track.  What of the B-side number ‘Connection’? This one came off sounding like a K-Pop theme to a K-Drama series that I’ve been forced to watch.  It’s either that or I’ve been flipping over one too many K-Dramas off late. 😛
