Humankind never stops facing challenges, although it is true that as a whole, we usually achieve a positive outcome, but it is also true that on certain occasions we tend to repeat the same mistake over and over. We simply do not learn.
The TRAX 2018 Spring Special starts with Yoshiki Hayashi and Hideto Takarai, better known as Yoshiki and Hyde. The former recognized for being the leader and co-founder of visual kei band X Japan, a man described as an innovative musician.
On the other hand, Hyde is a musician, composer, producer, actor and vocal leader of the rock band L’Arc-enCiel since 1991, and also in the band Vamps. Together, they perform the OP theme from the third season of Shingeki no Kyojin.
Then we can listen Yukari Tamura, a seiyuu and singer who debuted in 1997 with her single “Yuuki o Kudasai”. Her popularity raised because she gave voice to Nanoha Takamachi in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series. In our special, she performs the main track in the Island series.
Later comes YURiKA, a Saitama-born performer, who made her debut in 2017 with the single “Shiny Ray”, used as the theme song on Little Witch Academia. Her interest in the musical genre came from series like Haruhi Suzumiya and K-On! This occasion, she performs the OP theme song from the sports series Hanebado!
The rhythm turns into pop, but we quickly return to rock with Masaki Endou, another classic singer in the anime realm. One of the founders in bands like Anison or JAM Project, he interprets the main theme of the series Satsuriku no Tenshi.
Immediately after, we return to pop with themes by Asaka and Starlight Kukugumi, but Minami reminds us that rock is the best to emphasize an anime series.
Unlike other episodes, in this one we listen to sounds and rhythms widely used in different series from the past. Not to show off, but it is very pleasant.
For now, I invite you to listen to it, and I wish you the best.
