Outlooks for Winter 2011 Anime

winter-2011-anime

Looking ahead towards the new season only a week away, it looks as if there won’t be quite as many series that I’ll be following in comparison to this fall. However maybe that’s a good thing considering how I almost died trying to keep up since I’m a stubborn masochist unwilling to drop series. I …

Twelve Days of Anime: The Condensed One Day Version

aoi-point-blank-question

So I had originally decided to join in on this twelve days of anime thing since I’ve never done it in all the years I’ve spent blogging. However since it was a kind of a rushed decision and other things getting in the way, I am late to the party and only have the time …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS ED6 – Nageki no Tenshi [Ayatsuji Tsukasa]

amagami-ss-ed6

Here’s the latest Amagami ending by class representative Ayatsuji! The song is about Ayatsuji’s anxieties over whether anyone will ever love her and how she has been hiding part of herself behind a lie. It’s really nice and conveys the sentiments that endear me to her very well. If only Juunichi would realize that he’s …

[Lyrics] Love Live! School idol project 1st Single – Bokura no LIVE Kimi to no LIFE [μ’s]

bokura-no-live-kimi-to-no-life

Here’s the first song made for the collaboration project between Sunrise, Dengeki G’s and Lantis that incorporates fan participation in its planning. The single was released in August but I haven’t gotten around to it until now; I wasn’t in a rush since no one really knows about Love Live! Anyway I find the song …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS Character Insert Song – Hoshi [Sakurai Rihoko]

Here’s the second b-side Amagami character song that actually appeared in the anime. In English it translates to Stars and played during episode 20. Like Koi wa Aserazu, it reflects Rihoko’s passive yearning. I predict that Ayatsuji will also have both her songs in the anime. As such I figure I’ll also do the rest …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS Character Insert Song – minamo [Nanasaki Ai]

After much delay here’s minamo which means the surface of the water. The song played in episode 15 during a critical scene. It shares much of the same imagery as Ai’s other song Koi wa Mizuiro except it has a much more story-like quality; it takes us from the encounter in the park to Ai’s …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS ED5 – Koi wa Aserazu [Sakurai Rihoko]

amagami-ss-ed5

Here’s the latest ending theme song from Amagami. It tells the story of how Rihoko has over time come to fall in love with Junichi though is unable to express her feelings. Thematically it’s similar to Kaoru’s Kitto Ashita wa… and her arc in general although Rihoko has of course been holding in her feelings …
