As an anime season winds down, I start thinking about what music to add to my anime playlist. Winter 2021 is no exception, and yields some fine music indeed. And with so many sequels, it also lets me get caught up some on my backlog of Playlist posts!
So, without further ado, let’s hit the jump and listen to some laid back music!
If I were to make a list of shows in desperate need of a license rescue, the classic NANA would definitely be on it. If it was available, there’s a whole bunch of people (including your humble author) who would be constantly talking it up. In the meantime, it’s story has inspired a number of AMV’s that are very much worth watching.
Haven’t posted anything about my anime playlist in a bit, so I guess it’s time to update with my latest additions and thoughts.
Recovery of an MMO Junkie
Net-juu no Susume / “Recommendation of the Wonderful Virtual Life” Saturday Night Question – Megumi Nakajima
Rewatched MMO Junkie a couple of months back – and realized that I watched and listened to the OP every time. Maybe I didn’t fall in love the first time around, but I certainly did this time.
Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!
(Eizōken ni wa Te o Dasu na!) Chelmico – Easy Breezy
I watched the OP every single week, and loved it. But when I listened to the complete song, I didn’t like it so much. Still, wanted to share it because it’s a fun tune. And an anime very much worth watching if you haven’t.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
Otome Gēmu no Hametsu Furagu Shika Nai Akuyaku Reijō ni Tensei Shite Shimatta angela – There’s More Than Just One Route For a Maiden!
Another song that fell into the “great OP, didn’t like the full song” category… I think I liked the OP because of how neatly the music and animation were integrated. You don’t often see it so very well done.
What OP’s have you enjoyed recently? Bought any new anime music? Drop a comment and let’s chat.
It’s the second anniversary of my anime music playlist post… So it seems the proper time to give a modest update with the songs added from shows that aired in 2019. Probably the closest I’ll come to a “year in anime” post. (I’m not even trying any “of the decade” posts.)
