Music Monday

Ignoring the slight detail that is the day of the week, we once again bring you music to (hopefully) brighten up your week and play on that internal music player for hours to come.

Aoi Shiori comes from the opening of a recent anime from the past season, Ano Hana (aka ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai’). What struck me most about it is that it differed from the other openings of the season. It wasn’t your average pop or rock type opening – there was a pleasant tune to it, and there was a harmonised part I enjoyed greatly. The lyrics themselves are also quite meaningful and bring a sense of nostalgia, complementing the anime nicely.

I couldn’t find a video that wasn’t mirrored, so I’m inserting the full song. The animations for the OP added to what caught my eye initially though.

Having said all that, I think the ending theme (Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~) is also well worth a listen to, see under.
