As we approach Thanksgiving, there are always new CDs to check out given the weekly release schedule for most anime music. So for those who are looking forward to catching some of the opening or ending themes from this anime season, here’s what you can look forward to:
- Yuka Iguchi, the singer behind such works as Nisemonogatari’s “Platinum Disco,” has a new single out. This one is titled “rainbow heart ♡ rainbow dream ☆/Strike my soul” and can be heard as the ending theme to the Strike the Blood anime series.
- Aqua Timez, the band that’s been around since the early days of Bleach, also have a new single, this one, for Magi’s second season. In this instance, what we have is the ending theme to the anime series, titled Eden.
- Ore no nounai sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love-comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama shiteiru is quite the mouthful to say and more or less confirms its status as a light novel. Well, this particular single features the work of two singers, Kaori Sadohara and Saeko Zougou who, together, form the group known as TWO-FORMULA. Its title is Taiyou to Tsuki no CROSS for those interested in checking it out and it serves as the ending theme to the long-titled anime series.
- You’ve also heard of the seiyuu idol group Sphere, I hope? If not, it’s the group that has K-ON singers Aki Toyosaki and Minkao Kotobuki, but also features Ayahi Takagaki and Haruka Tomatsu. This quartet has been busy working on Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita and sing “Sticking Places” from the anime.
- Finally, what’s an anime music release without the likes of Supercell to top out the list, with an album no less? ZIGAEXPERIENTIA is the latest Supercell album, featuring the likes of koeda’s performances from anime such as Guilty Crown, Magi, and even the re-broadcast of Katanagatari. The days of yanaginagi have long flown by, but fans of ryo’s music should have a lot to look forward if the goal is to get all of his music in one convenient spot.
There are a few more noteworthy ones, so keep an eye out for those in the next post.
