Autumn Playlist '15

This post took quite a while. Even though it began mid-November, the Christmas one arrives first. Ehem…

The Fall season has ended and Winter has just begun. But before I’ll greet the Winter lineup, it’s time to end off and say my final farewell to Fall with my playlist of its season. With that, here’s my Autumn Playlist 2015.

First up is…

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk with its ending theme, “Waiting for the rain” by Maaya Sakamoto. 

This song is really nice to listen to, especially when the clouds are grey. Yes, it really stands by its name. I can’t tell you guys how many times I have listen to this song. It’s a somewhat slow song that calms my heart and at times blows away all the stress that has been accumulating from my final year project. I actually mistake the actual singer to be fully English spoken so it surprise me when I found out who it was. This song is a wonderful song for a train or bus ride back home.

Next is Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu Ka?? with its ending theme, ときめきポポロン♪ by Chimame-tai. 

This song or more specifically this ending animation and song turn my blood to sugar. It’s just so kawaii~ Bobbing my head along with its rhythm probably made me diabetic. Hnggh~ God damn it! Why? Why are you killing me with this overabundance of cuteness? Why are you just so adorable!? Not a pedophile… Just being human

Following that is Hackadoll The Animation with its opening theme, “Touch Tap Baby” by Hacka Doll. 

This song rose up to one of top ten quite fast. It’s so catchy and the beat is very easy to get into. It’s one of those songs where my fingers and hands just like go along with the rhythm. Some people will find it weird to see some guy in the train or bus tapping his fingers on the handrail or moving his hands around but hey… the song is really enjoyable.

Up next is Hidan no Aria AA with its opening theme, “Bull’s Eye” by the one and only nano. I believe I have said this in my AFA 15 post. This song is overwhelmingly enjoyable and since I am a big fan of nano, it makes it even more enjoyable. Mouthing the lyrics out in public is something I do often and I am sure a lot of us do as well. Even right now as I type this down I am singing along with nano as the song plays in the background. My fingers are going crazy with the rhythm and my body is swaying to the beat. Ah… It ended…

Noragami Aragoto is next with its brilliant opening theme, “狂乱Hey Kids!! by THE ORAL CIGARETTES. 

As mention in my review of the Autumn anime lineup, here it is in my top ten. The chorus is extremely catchy and you just can’t help to sing the first verse of the chorus. It has a very fun rhythm and good vocals. Tapping your fingers or clapping just seems like a natural thing to do. I swear, I respect the hero~

Next is One Punch Man with it’s opening theme, “THE HERO !! ~怒れる拳に火をつけろ~” by JAM Project. 

I enjoyed this song more than I should have. Or should I have enjoyed it more? The famous JAM Project who sang various opening theme for the Cardfight Vanguard series, which I really like those songs by the way. To hear their voices again really makes me happy and especially with this anime. Yes, it makes it even more epic. This song just screams power (well to me that is…), which really suits the anime. The screaming at the end really enhances the mood of the anime. I too wanna be a hero…

Owari no Seraph: Nagoya Kessen-hen brings with it the ending theme, “オラリオン by the popular Nagi Yanagi. The different parts of the song flows well creating different moods to experience when it slows down and then speeds up in the chorus. I kept swaying my head and tapping my fingers to the rhythm. There’s also this swell of emotion that I experience whenever I listen to this song. Makes me feel very solemn with a tinge of solitude. And sadness as well… Also fuzziness as well. And that ending for the anime though… What’s going to happen next?

Next is Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai with its really catchy ending, “Calling my Twilight” by Kanako Itou. 

Her voice greatly reminds me of the band Zwei, which I both really like. Maybe because they sang the themes for the Robotic;Notes. Possible. Anyway, this song has a very easy rhythm that you can get into very fast and her voice really enhances that experience. You will soon find your body swaying to it just like I did mine. It’s really hard to type when your body is swaying around. Just to add, I really like Topology.

The last two songs comes from the same anime. I present to you the opening and ending theme of Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, “Overdrive’ by Hitomi Warada and “ウルトラスーパーハイパーミラクルロマンチック” by Mirie Shikishima and Mamori Tokonome. First, the opening theme. It is just amazing. You can’t help screaming OVERDRIVE along with the singer. The emotion put into singing it… You can really feel it in the song. The fast beat and changes in the rhythm when it gets to the chorus helps in the song experience. The guitar solo is also fun to play air guitar along. The ending theme is just plain fun. Come on… I know I am not the only one who enjoys it… A fast pace, nice rhythm and a catchy tune. I just want to have fun when listening to it. Hey, I got my family into it. Not the anime, but the song. Super Ultra Hyper Miracle Romantic~
