Weekly Anime Music Releases – May 27

A long list of anime music including Nisekoi’s Rally Go Round by LiSA. Sit down and take a look at what came out on the week of May 27:

Anime OP/ED Singles

Nisekoi LISA

NISEKOI: -False Love-

Album Name: Rally Go Round
Artist: LiSA
Purchase at: CDJapan
I’ve never really hid my disdain for LiSA’s music since power pop was never my style and she seems to have the unfortunate tendency to get in my face without really transmitting anything too meaningful. Other artists like Nana Mizuki do a much better job, and if I wanted to listen to that type of music, I’d listen to her over LiSA

Houkago no Pleiades ED

Wish Upon the Pleiades

Album Name: Koko kara, Kanata kara
Artist: fragments
Purchase at: CDJapan
Given what you’ve seen out of the show, it’s not surprising to hear that “Koro Kara, Kanata Kara” is full of the sugary sweet seiyuu goodness. The song doesn’t go out of its way to inspire, but then again, it doesn’t really have to. The cuteness factor is what fans are going after anyway, and the song is pretty mellow and relaxing.

Weekly Anime Music Releases – April 29

A torrent of anime music awaits us at the end of April and boy are there a lot of singles to really digest and ponder over. Not so much on the soundtrack side though where you get a small dose of Bahamut, but it’s still something to consider since Yoshihiro Ike isn’t much of a slouch. Here’s a look at what’s coming out this week:

Anime Openings and Ending Themes

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan OP

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan

Album Name: Fure Fure Mirai
Artist: Kitakou Bungeibu Joshikai
Purchase at: CDJapan
The first of the albums that we’re looking at comes from the well-worn Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya franchise featuring probably the best girl in the series, especially if you saw the movie. In terms of this single though, you’ll get to hear Minori Chihara and many of the side characters from the Haruhi franchise take it away. If you’ve liked their previous stuff, this disc becomes a no-brainer. Besides, it’s a lot of fun!

Kin-iro Mosaic 2 OP-ED

Hello!! KINMOZA

Album Name: Yumeiro Parade/My Best Friends
Artist: Rhodanthe*
Purchase at: CDJapan
So Rhodanthe* is really a group made up of voice actresses Asuka Nishi, Manami Tanaka, Risa Taneda, Yumi Uchiyama, and Nao Toyama and they’ve also performed the opening theme to the first season of the show. With cutesy vocals, a giant ska opening, and happy bouncy lyrics, this set captures the lives of young girls effectively and I can see people actually being drawn to this single. It’s certainly a lot better than many of the other seiyuu stuff out there.
