Yet another OP/ED themes post, this time for the Spring 2010 season. Please note that this is quite subjective list as it’s ranked according to my preference, followed by randomly listed titles as “special mention.”

~ Format :: “Song title” by band/artist (OP#/ED# – anime series title)

My second year-end list of anime OP/ED themes which I thought were worth mentioning. I basically just compiled my seasonal list and re-ranked the songs altogether regardless of the season order (although some got bumped out of the list and some got added in).

*This covers the Winter 2008/2009 season all the way to Fall 2009.*

Please note that this list is pretty much subjective as it’s ranked into “Top 10” according to my preference. From this year on, it will be followed by a list of those that “almost made my Top 10,” and then followed by the usual randomly listed titles as “special mention.”

headphones02This will be my first year-end list of anime OP/ED themes which I thought were noteworthy for 2008.  I began posting this list every season since Spring 2008. However, I’ll be including a couple of themes from series that aired from Winter 2007/2008. I simply compiled my seasonal list and re-ranked the songs altogether regardless of the season order (though it’s still noted).

So, this will cover the Winter 2007/2008 to Fall 2008 seasons. Please note that this list is pretty much subjective. It’s ranked into “Top 10” according to my preference, followed by randomly listed titles as “special mention.”

Onto the list!

Just another quick random music-related entry that I wanted to share. I recently stumbled upon this live acoustic version of “Ougon no Tsuki” (Golden Moon) by Suga Shikao (insert song – Honey and Clover season 1, episode 19). It’s one of my favorite Suga Shikao songs and it was played as an insert song in my favorite anime featuring two of my favorite characters in H&C (Nomiya and Yamada). Ah, I can vividly remember the scene from the anime whenever I hear this song… Nomiya and Yamada running across the road, hand in hand, as Mayama gives chase.

The original version has a more soul/funk flavor to it while this live version is more of a ballad that is a bit more bittersweet-sounding than the original because of the violins, the cello, and the guitar, which I think gave this version more emotional impact. I love it. It tugs my heartstrings every time I listen to it. [view lyrics]

PS: There’s a bit of dialogue at the beginning and at the end of the video.

Just a totally random music-related entry that I wanted to share. I recently came across this live acoustic version of “19sai” (or Jukyu-sai) by Suga Shikao (OP #1xxxHolic). I found it so awesome that I just had to babble about it here! xD

Yeah, yeah, I might be way late in stumbling across this but I’ll write about it anyway. ;P The original album version is already one of my favorites, but I must say I seem to like this acoustic one even better. His voice is great (as usual), coupled with brilliant guitar riffs. Aside from this, what stands out for me are the violin and cello parts, which I think gave this version a whole new level of goodness and impact. I simply loved it.

P.S. I also think I’ve been listening too much to THYME and Base Ball Bear lately… Heh, but I don’t care because they so rock! 😉
