I see there was no love for the Caligula OP but beyond that it's a good selection of songs.

Huh - didn't realize that ELISA had worked on the EDs of Railgun. I should know her voice well enough since the sang "Euphoric Field" and "Ebullient Future". But then again, I've never been too interested in the Railgun EDs (Dem Fripside OPs are dope, though).

I've added Hinamatsuri to my to-watch list after reading an article about it on ANN. However, that insert song... Ugh... It grates my ears. I hope that gets dubbed over :P.

Some nice picks for this season's music list. While I haven't really come across and OP or ED that really sands out to me from this spring season I do ha ve some thoughts on a few of them.
I'm pretty surprised Man with a Mission did the OP for Golden Kamuy (pronounced "kah-mui" rather than "Kah-miu" or "Kah-miui".). Wouldn't really think their gruff metal style would fit a show about adventures in meiji Japan, but it totally works.
Sword Art Online's new OP really reminds me of something out of a Touhou game, at least in terms of the instrumentals. As a fan of the Touhou games I'm totally fine with this.
I agree with Andrew regarding My Hero Academia's new OP. It's a fine song but doesn't click with the visuals. I've heard other people say the same, so I guess it's not just something we're imagining.

Lastly I would've liked to hear you mention the ED for Hisone to Maso-tan, which is a catchy japanese remake of a 60's french pop song. I'm not sure if the show is on Netflix and that's why you skipped it, but I definitely think the ED deserves a mention at some later point.

Chris did enjoy it, I felt it was too synthesized for this episode (even though I put a goofy insert song in lol). We may see it in another episode.

Haha, she's an up and coming star, don't hate on her :P

I am curious what American rhyme they will replace it with.. or if they will do a straight translation.

Yay, I'm not alone!

Hisone to Maso-tan was not mentioned as it's not legally available. We don't typically include them. It will probably make an appearance during it's review episode. Thanks for the suggestion though.
