Loop-Worthy Anime Songs: All That July

Okay, I completely understand that July has already passed us by, but it just so happens that the stuff which I'm writing about has something to do with July. If I could change it to August, believe me I definitely would. I mean, August is a rather nice month, with all the red and white flags swaying around everywhere. Besides, it is nearly four months away from Christmas. My favourite dessert for Christmas is log cake. Oops, I shouldn't be blabbering any further. As I was mentioning, the theme of July spreads across the gist of today's article. Welcome to my somewhat special edition of Loop-Worthy Anime Songs - All That July! Yeah, the various theme songs that are about to follow come from the anime shows that premiered last month. Naturally (?), some are suitable for cardio workouts while the rest should be played peacefully. 

♪ Future Fish - Style Five (Free! Eternal Summer, premiered 02 July 2014)
This reminds me of the post that I did on singing voice actors. In fact, it ties in beautifully with the fact that the voice actors of Nagisa (Yonaga Tsubasa) and Rei (Hirakawa Daisuke) make up two-fifths of Style Five, which also consists of the voice actors of Haruka (Shimazaki Nobunaga), Makoto (Suzuki Tatsuhisa) and Rin (Miyano Mamoru). Prior to 'Future Fish', Style Five had also performed two ending theme songs for the first season of Free! - 'Splash Free' for the first 11 episodes and 'Ever Blue' for the finale. These guys can really whip up quite the storm. I've already lost count of the number of times that I've looped both songs. Now, with 'Future Fish' I don't think that it is necessary to count anymore. The closing sequence for Free! Eternal Summer is just too awesome. Full of colours. Full of creativity. We see Haruka as a merman, Rin as a policeman, Makoto as a firefighter, Nagisa as an astronaut and Rei as a scientist. Haruka also doubles as a chef along the way. There is much fun and joy watching their new identities interact with one another. The ending scene simply screams kawaii.

♪ Moon Pride - Momoiro Clover Z (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal, premiered 05 July 2014)
Okay, I've got to admit that I didn't think much about this song at the beginning. My mind was pretty much still tuned to the first-generation opening theme song otherwise known as Moonlight Densetsu. Yeah, I suppose Moonlight Densetsu had already done much damage (?) to my ears and brains. But I told myself to give the brand new stuff another shot, and I did. Momoiro Clover Z has done a wonderful job with Moon Pride. The song is bursting with every inch of confidence, accelerating forward to the imageries of the moon and stars. The silhouettes of all five sailors join in, as if to assure the uncertain soul that every thing is going to be all right. It is an extremely catchy and energetic song. Perhaps somebody would like to loop this for their cardio workouts? However, I won't be held responsible for any injury caused by some out-of-the-blue funky dance move.

♪ Kimi Janakya Dame Mitai - Oishi Masayoshi (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, premiered 06 July 2014)
I feel really sorry for the tanuki that has inevitably become some sort of a sacrifice for the opening sequence of this amazing song. The chorus has to be my most favourite part of the song! It really helps to build the cheery, fun and sometimes morbid atmosphere of the anime. The bits where the various characters are introduced are also a pleasure to watch. The backgrounds and other details more or less reveal their associations with the characters. I find that the final shot makes a lovely representation of the characters. If anybody is confused, just google for the TV size of the song. 

Well, come to think of it...the above-mentioned songs should be safe (?) enough to accompany anybody's cardio workouts. I don't think that they are likely to cause any health hazard or something. However, I won't be held responsible if anything weird were to arise from listening to those songs.

Eccentrically Yours.
