Posted January 17, 2010on:
It’s been such a long time since I’ve been this hyped-up over anime opening songs. Previously, I was hooked on eufonius’ Megumeru ~cuckool mix 2007~, and had always then been looking forward to their next release, which was the opening song for True Tears, titled Reflectia.
You can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw this cover. The cover girl is Noe Isurugi and not
that bitch Yuasa Hiromi. I guess this really confirms the fact that Isurugi is the main female protagonist of True Tears, and Hiromi is just a supporting character. Banzai!!!
Not only is True Tears a captivating anime, its OP also follows its footsteps.
And so, the long-awaited(?) series, H20 ~Footprints in the Sand~, has finally made its debut a few days ago. Is it worth a watch? You bet it is.
Who doesn’t know of Key’s Holy Trinity? Put your name (and address) down and I’ll kick your ass!
The first of the Holy Trinity (By KyoAni, that is. Let’s just ignore Toei’s…) is Air, followed by Kanon, and now Clannad. For those who are faithful followers of these 3 animes, I believe it’s because of the
1) melodious songs and BGMs,
2) the 110% perfect 2D girls,
3) and the animes’ extraordinary plots which contain a tinge of supernatural infused with ultra-effective tears-jerking scenes.
These 3 elements can all be found in Air and Clannad, but one of them is missing in Kanon. This makes me rather pissed off. How can they do this to my beloved Kanon which has Makoto Sawatari in it?!?
The ladies of Naruto bringing you their Christmas greetings with their (Insert whatever you deem fit here).
Here at Lustrous Realm, I’ll like to wish every one a Merry Christmas of year 2007! Hope you guys receive LOTS of presents!
I don’t have much to offer you guys, except for one splendid Christmas choir carol. No, it’s not related to anime, so please don’t cry and curse me afterwards. But still, it has a VERY small relation to Kanon 2006.
I’ve been a loyal fan of Clannad ever since its anime started and it has reached episode 9 thus far. This is also the episode where Fuko’s story arc finally comes to a close. I’ve read lots of reviews from many anime blogs and most of them said that this episode has made them cried terribly.
I don’t wish to be branded as a poikilothermic human, but is this episode really that emotional? Just to let you know, I haven’t shed a single tear yet in Clannad, whereas I have in both its predecessors, namely Kanon 2006 and Air.
Oh and another thing, the 2 sentimental BGMs and the song called ‘Ana’ by Lia are embedded after the break. Do enjoy. I know I did.
I finally have time to sit in front of my computer and blog. The past few days have indeed been very exhausting for me as I worked in SMU as an exam helper. Luckily, my job will end soon on this Saturday and I’ll be back in front of my computer 24/7 once again. For now, let’s start my topic for today.
An anime is never complete without suiting BGMs (Background Music). This is an undeniable fact. BGMs have the mysterious ability to make us cry, laugh, become angry, or even pump up our adrenaline and get us all excited. You might have watched before certain emotional anime scenes and the tears are about to fall, but you are a man and with all your might, force your tears back into your eyes. However, in the next second before you know it, you curse the producers for playing a sentimental BGM right in the middle of that scene and finally, your eyelids can’t support the weight equivalent to that of the Victoria Falls anymore.
BGMs have always been one of my criteria for selecting animes. If a certain BGM touches my heart the first time I listen to it, I’ll most probably watch that anime. Today, I bring to you the top 10 sentimental anime BGMs which have all touched my heart umpteen times. I believe these BGMs will also have the same effects on you as they have on me.
(I would really love to put Nagisa’s Theme in the first position, but a pity there is another one which is far more superior than it…)
