Two new articles have graced our anime music blog in the past week, one of which is an editorial that goes in-depth into 3 anime series that add meaning to their opening/ending themes. While the usage of OP/ED themes have commonly been used to set the tone for an anime, in some cases, the reverse is true as the anime make the instrumentals and lyrics in their respective opening and ending theme much more meaningful, tying the anime song together with the anime in a way that renders it unforgettable and better as a result. Definitely give it a read as it goes on to talk about Natsume Yuujinchou, Steins;Gate, and the perennial favorite, Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
The second post is a review of Tsuritama’s soundtrack. We did cover Tsuritama’s soundtrack release a few weeks ago and we’re happy to report that it’s soundtrack is very much wistful and enjoyable. If you’re looking for music that’s calm, mellow, and slightly eccentric, look no further than the Kuricorder Quartet’s compositions for this anime.
