Summer Playlist '15

Summer is almost over, the same with some of our holidays. How I envy those who still have them… 

I want to have holidays as well!
Kuyashii! My sister has a two-month semester break and she’s lazing around at home. She looks so deplorable. 

Much like Umaru. Just not a chibi or as annoyingly cute. Anyways, here is my playlist for this year’s summer season and some weren’t really expected to be up there. Begin the playlist.

First is Charlotte, with its ending song “Yake Ochinai Tsubasa” by Aoi Tada. There seem to be two ending songs for it. So as to not be confused, it’s the first ending that appeared. To me the song helps to soothe my battered soul. A peaceful song that is best played during journeys in the bus, taxi or just relaxing by the beach on a windy day. Maybe even sitting at the bus stop on a rainy day. Oh, and have you seen the latest episode? Come on, it was kind of expected to happen. But I secretly hope that the power doesn’t exist. Why can’t it just stay sad?

Up next is Gangsta. with it’s opening, “Renegade” by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION 

Just love the opening...
This opening song is amazing. I can’t help but have the urge to move my body to the song. The song feels “active”. Especially the chorus. It’s like I’m at a night club (not that I have been to one before) and the DJ plays this song. I just want to jump to it. The next one is its ending song, “Yoru no Kuni” by Annabel, which has the opposite tone to the opening. It gives off more of a lax attitude and a hint of gloominess to it. It is very easy to listen to with its slightly slow pace. Another song meant for a rainy day.

Folllowing after is from Himouto Umaru-chan’s opening, “Kakushin-tekiMetamarufoze!” by Aimi Tanaka. 

I guess you could say this song is more on the fun aspect that I’ve chosen it for. The 8-bit theme to its music really brings back fun and stressful time I spent on playing Pokemon on the GameBoy Color and also various games on the SEGA MEGA DRIVE. Now I don’t know where the console is anymore. Miss playing Sonic on it.

Next is Non Non Biyori Repeat, with its opening, “Kodama Kotodama’’ by nano.RIPE. 

Get ready to Wotagei...
I just love her voice so much. The song is so lively. Mixing the acoustic instruments together  really brings out the atmosphere of the song. In the rural area, expose to the various seasons that passes by. I’ve been listening to a lot of nano.RIPE’s songs recently due to me finishing Hanasaku Iroha a few weeks ago. Ahh… Just brilliant

Overlord is next with its opening theme, “Clattanoia” by O×T. 

This song got stuck in my head the very first time it was played. It became something for me to look forward to whenever I watch the next episode. It’s just very engaging and fun to listen to. I just want to shout along with them at the chorus. A song to rock out to this season. Yay!

After that is Rokka no Yuusha with its first opening, “Cry for Truth” by MICHI. When I first heard this song, I just know that it will the top for my list this season. To me, it just fell atmospheric I guess. It makes me feel fuzzy inside and I enjoyed the adventure it brought me thoroughly. This series is something that stands out for me this season. With the release of its latest episode that ended with a cliffhanger, it feels so frustrating and yet at the same time so riveting.

Following that is the opening for Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX, “Exterminate” by Nana Mizuki. This song is really entertaining. It’s loud and energetic. Boisterous is the word. This song is also one of my favourite following closely behind “Cry for Truth”. It could also be considered atmospheric. It’s kind of hard to describe how I categorize these songs. I just feel it. I JUST FEEL IT! Though I won’t listen to it too much. I get bad headaches later on.

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai is next with its ending, “Inner Urge”. 

Pero! Pero! Pero!
This song is a guilty pleasure. (Bad pun not intended) I just can’t help myself but enjoy it more than I should. Maybe because it reminds me of Punchline’s opening, “PUNCH LINE!”. I can’t really explain much about why I like it. Like I said, it’s a guilty pleasure.

And finally, another guilty pleasure. From the leftovers of Spring, Shokugeki no Soma’s second ending, “Sacchan no Sexy Curry” by Seiko Oomori. I can’t really describe why I like it. I just do. Ugh… It pains me to not know why I like it so much. I just can’t resist to hear it again and again and again. It’s exactly like Nao Sadatsuka’s laksa dish. It’s so pungent but it taste so good. (That could be taken in a whole other way) Sometimes I do question my interest and taste.

And now, onto the recommendations. Another ten for you guys

Overlord ED - L.L.L. by MYTH&ROID

There it is. My top ten songs this season. Are there any songs from this season’s batch that I should try out? Till the next season arrives I’ll just keep replaying all of them in a loop.

Oh, have you guys seen the first episode of One Punch Man? I watched it through a certain site. It felt a bit rush though. But it was still epic. Well, until he punch them that is...

Mate ne~
