In Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, following the world destruction, a couple of girls wander the ruins in search for hope, and something to survive. This is probably not the best setup to start the TRAX 2017 Fall Special. However, as long as we have health and our beloved ones near, life is good.
Later we meet with Do As Infinity (D・A・I), a pop and rock band formed in 1999, they are well recognized thanks to several of the Inuyasha theme songs. The original band disbanded in 2005, but reformed in 2008 without guitarist and composer Dai Nagao.
Then we listen to the first OP theme for the Black Clover anime, performed by Kankaku Piero, formed in 2013 by guitarist Takuto Akizuki, drummer Kenta Nishio, bassist Daiki Takiguchi, along with guitarist and vocalist Naohiro Yokoyama.
The rhythm changes from pop into rock and we listen a catchy song from Cellchrome, a Japanese rock band that was formed in 2015 in Nagoya. They signed to Being Records label in 2017. They perform the OP theme in the short Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara anime series.
They are followed by DAOKO, a female singer and rapper born in Tokyo, and veteran singer and songwriter Yasuyuki Okamura, who is known internationally for performing a theme song in the City Hunter series. They perform the ending theme in the Kekkai Sensen BEYOND anime.
The beats slow down as we listen to Rio Okano, also known as Rionos, a singer, songwriter, producer and seiyuu. Later, we find GARNiDELiA, a pop rock duo consisting of singer Mai Mizuhashi, also known by her stage name MARiA, and producer Abe Yoshinori.
As the episode comes to an end, we listen to JUNNA performing the opening theme for the Mahou Tsukai no Yome, she made her singing career debut as the singing voice of Mikumo Guynemer, the lead vocalist of the group Walküre from the anime Macross Delta.
Our special comes to an end with artists like RIRIKO and seiyuu like Inori Minase and Yurika Kubo. Finally, we listen to Mia REGINA, a young female vocal group formed in 2016.
