A little belated but nonetheless, I wanted to share my selections of the Spring 2011 Season OP-ED songs that peak my interest.
Ao no Exorcist OP “Core Pride” by UverWorld
Could not do without the OP from Ao no Exorcist. The anime is one of the better ani-manga adaptation that’s airing at the moment.
Ano Hana OP “Aoi Shiori” by Galileo Galilei
One of my favourite opening songs, ‘Aoi Shiori’ managed to convey the carefree days of childhood in its spunky melody. Just the right fit for a show about the ups and downs of friendship through the years.
C – Control OP “Matoryoshika” by NICO Touches the Walls
Not of the best NICO song but the intro sequence’s really rockin’.
Hanasaku Iroha OP “Hana no Iro” by Nano.RIPE
To be honest, the acapella vocal at the beginning puts me off a little but thankfully, once the music came in, it descends into something rather catchy.
Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi OP “Hoshikaze no Horoscope” by Nomico
I pick this because it’s more in the vain of a ‘Ceui’, ‘Lia’ or ‘eufonius’ type of theme which i like quite a bit.
Hyouge Mono OP1 “Bowl Man” by IKZO
Interesting intro sequence. ‘Bowl Man’ is an apt title too.
Nichijou OP “Hyadain no Kakakata☆kataomoi-C” by Hyadain
Surprisingly, this is a favourite of mine for some reason. xD
Seikai Ichi Hatsukoi OP “Sekai de Ichiban Koishiteru” by Shuhei Kita
Since I watched the anime, I just feel the need to include the OP which has got loads of pink and a wabbit. 😆
Ano Hana ED “Secret Base – Kimi Gakure ta Mono (10 years after Ver.)” by Ai Kayano, Haruka Tomatsu, and Saori Hayami
A lovely sentimental song with a very pretty outro sequence made this a lovely combination.
Ao no Exorcist ED “Take Off” by 2PM
I may not be a fan of K-pop sensation 2PM but I do like the song for the ending theme, especially when a part of the ending sequence shows the dance bits by the characters….made me lolol much.
C – Control ED “RPG” by School Food Punishment
As much as I adore SFP’s music, I do find their songs somewhat similar sounding but undeniably, they do have the knack of coming up with a catchy hook of a melody and ‘RPG’ IS infectious to listen too.
Deadmen Wonderland ED “Shiny Shiny” by Nirgilis
It may seemed odd to end a gloomy and sometimes gruesome anime with a catchy, upbeat song but in this case it works for me. I thought it is a very ‘Shiro’ number. Kinda forlorn in reverse actually.
Sket Dance ED “Comic Sonic” by The Pillows
lolol… One of my favourites. Love the song and the amusing sequence. Don’t think much of the anime though.
Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai ED “NEVERLAND” by Miyuki Hashimoto
Another airy theme that reminded me of ‘Lia’ & ‘eufonius’.
Seikai Ichi Hatsukoi ED “Ashita, Boku wa Kimi ni Ai ni Yuku” by Wakaba
What to do, cos I watched the anime and I like Wakaba’s song, so I picked it.
Gintama’ ED1 “Samurai Heart (Some Like It Hot!!)” by SPYAIR
Oh yo there Samurai Heart. A perfect song for Gintoki I’d say. 😆
There you have it!
