Already into 2012, it’s about time to release a new special, this time, the Fall Season Special has a nice rock feeling.
As a whole, the season had its ups and downs, but in terms of OP and ED themes, it contained a nice variety of rhythms, most of those with good guitar riffs and endless drums.
Bakuman 2 brought us a new catchy song by Tommy heavenly6, aka Tomoko Kawase, who is well known for songs as “EVERYDAY AT THE BUS STOP”, “je t’aime★je t’aime”, “Wait till I can dream” and “pray”.
Houkago Tea Time were part of the OST of the K-ON Movie, it was formed in May 2009 by Sakurakou K-ON Bu (Aki Toyosaki, Yoko Hikasa, Satomi Sato and Minako Kotobuki) with Taketatsu Ayana. Of course, the anime series inspired this group, and has had a lot of success thanks to it.
Also, you’ll be able to find new talents, such as Eir Aoi, who was discovered through Nico Nico Douga video sharing network. She was selected to sing the ED song for Fate/Zero anime.
Or how about 7!! -Pronounced Seven Oops- a four piece JRock band formed in 2004. They received the grand prix for Mitsuya Cider CM Audition in 2005. They are recognized, thanks to a Naruto Shippuuden OP, but this time they perform the OP theme for Kimi to Boku.
If you think you need some real idols, maybe Maaya Sakamoto or KOTOKO will be able to fill your needy heart. Sakamoto had a couple singles, but this time Tamayura hitotose’s OP was the pick. And KOTOKO returns as Shakugan no Shana III puts an end to this anime franchise.
Sure you’ll find something interesting to listen.
Have a great 2012, and prepare for a new year of music and anime!
