Those who have seen Summer 2012’s anime offering of Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita will undoubtedly have come across an ending theme that’s set to a blurry, shadowy, dreamlike state. That song, “Yume no Naka no Watashi no Yume,” has a haunting quality to it delivered through vocalist Masumi Ito. Longtime anime fans might find her delivery to be similar to the vocals in Azumanga Daioh’s “Raspberry Heaven,” which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise given that Masumi Ito made up a part of the Oranges and Lemons group that performed “Raspberry Heaven.”
In addition to singing this ending theme, Masumi Ito has done a lot of compositions over the years for anime like the Bungaku Shoujo movie and the Chrono Crusade anime under the composer name of Hikaru Nanase.
The release of “Yume no Naka no Watashi no Yume” will be the only Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita music that’ll be out for awhile and it’s set to be released on August 4, 2012 (not too long after the mega-release last Wednesday which included Nana Mizuki’s “Bright Stream”). The opening theme, “Real world” by nano.RIPE was released just last week and the soundtrack won’t be out for awhile longer.
