The main reason for my liking the Japanese song is how 'soft' her voice sounds right at the beginning of the verse. When I rewatched the series (probably about 2 years ago by now), it instantly hit me - the moment the OP started, it felt like silk in my ears (No, I've never actually tried stuffing silk in there , but I think it's an apt analogy). It carries emotion very well, too (which is unfortunately hampered by me not understanding the words, which brings us back to my general preference of English songs).Crash Kamio wrote:Ohhh man I love the Romeo x Juliet OP. Goosebumps every time, I gotta finish that show too. I may be biased towards the Japanese one because of the way she hits the high note during the final chorus. Something about the passion she gives in that song brings me to the brink of tears almost every time. The English version is great too though, very moving.
I'm also a fan of the Clannad After Story opening, The first Little Busters! opening and both anohana songs. And dang, how could I forget to mention "Super Driver" (Cristina Vee's version)? We talked about that one somewhere earlier in this thread, I think. It always gets me pumped, and the lyrics are spot-on in reflecting Haruhi's ecentric view of the world.Crash Kamio wrote:Brighter than the dawning Blue OP "Prelude, We Are Not Alone"

Well, thanks to your recommendation, I did check it out. I don't think I've ever heard Vic sing more than a line or two, but he's obviously quite good at it. Thumbs up from me . Although it's probably been about 10 years since I watched the anime, so I don't remember what the original ED sounded like.Crash Kamio wrote:Speaking of Ouran, have you heard Vic Mignognas version of Shissou, the Ouran ED? It beats the original Japanese and English version done by whoever did it originally in English for the official release.
I just finished reading The Eden of Grisaia this week - an intriguing and appropriate (if at times very surprising) finale to a great franchise. Now I've finally got time to watch some anime again (It's my personal policy to never watch/read two series/visual novels at the same time) . On that note, I'm curious: Have you continued Katawa Shoujo?
