Hello everybody, I hope many of you are doing well in School or work as well as finishing exams. Don’t study to hard! Summer has officially begun.
Anyways, Naruto Shippuuden OP 12 – “Moshimo” by Daisuke & ED24 – “Sayonara Memory (さよならメモリー Sayonara Memori)” by 7!! is ready to download and it has been uploaded a long while ago. Just so you know Naruto Shippuuden OP 12 – “Moshimo” by Daisuke that was released by nipponsei wasn’t released as a single, but as part of Hoshi No Drops Album that was released on Mar 13, 2013. A new Naruto Shippuuden ending will debut in Episode 320: Run, Omoi on July 4, 2013; it’s called “Yume o Daite ~Hajimari no Clisroad~” (夢を抱いて～はじまりのクリスロード～; Carry Your Dreams ~The Crissroad of Beginnings~) by Rake and the single will be released on July 31, 2013.
Rake did Saraiya Goyou (House of Five Leaves) ED & Uchuu Kyoudai (Space Brothers) ED1, so some of you may be familiar with his songs already.
Shingeki no Kyojin ED – “Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai” (美しき残酷な世界; A Beautiful Cruel World) by Yōko Hikasa is ready to download and it has been uploaded a long while ago (again). There will be a new opening & ending on July 6, 2013 in Episode 14, which is a recap episode. They are as follow; OP2 will be “Jiyuu no Tsubasa” (自由の翼; Wings of Freedom) by Linked Horizon and it will be included in “Guren no Yumiya” (紅蓮の弓矢; Bow and Arrow of Crimson) by Linked Horizon single on July 10, 2013. ED2 will be “great escape” by cinema staff and the single will be released on Aug 21, 2013. So look forward to it.
This is most likely cinema staff’s first anime, feel free to check out their songs on youtube to get an idea what their songs are like.
Kakumeiki Valvrave OP – “Preserved Roses” by Nana Mizuki x T.M.Revolution & ED2 – “Soba ni Iru yo” (そばにいるよ; I’m By Your Side) by ELISA is ready for download and it has been uploaded a long while ago (as well). I’m still waiting to see if Nipponsei will release ED1 Album – “Boku Janai (僕じゃない;It’s Not Me)” by angela or not, then I will get the next best release if not out within 3-6 months. As you know, Kakumeiki Valvrave is being split into 2 seasons; the first 12 episodes is being broadcast from Apr 12, 2013 to Jun 28, 2013, while the remaining 13 episodes will broadcast in fall 2013. So new OP & EDs will not be revealed till at least Aug/Sept 2013.
Suisei no Garugantia OP – “Kono Sekai wa Bokura o Matte Ita” (この世界は僕らを待っていた; This World Has Been Waiting For Us) by Minori Chihara & ED – “Sora to Kimi no Message” (空とキミのメッセージ; Sky and Your Message) by ChouCho is also ready for download and it has been uploaded a long while ago (as well). That concludes the theme songs for Suisei no Garugantia has its final episode will be broadcast on Jun 30, 2013. All I can say is that it has been a pretty good series to watch & enjoy.
For Ginga Kikoutai: Majestic Prince, I’m still waiting to see if Niponnsei will release OP1 – “Watashi wa Sōzō suru” (私は想像する; I Would Imagine) by Natsumi Kon & ED1 – “Sayonara tte iu” (サヨナラっていう; Saying Goodbye) by Chiaki Ishikawa or not, then I will get the next best release if not out within 3-6 months. Also it been revealed that Natsumi Kon will sing the 2nd Opening, titled PROMPT. This is currently not 100% official as I’m still awaiting official confirmation from either the artist website or anime official site. The 2nd ending has yet to be revealed as well. A new OP & ED is expected to debut in July 2013.
Now that the release updates are out of the way for now, we can move on. I’ve recently uploaded the latest OST: Rebuild of Evangelion for your enjoyment. The themes are as follow. Ending 1 or Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone Theme – “Beautiful World” by Hikaru Utada, Ending 2 or Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance – “Beautiful World -PLANiTb Acoustica Mix-” by Hikaru Utada as part of the Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol. 2 Album, and Ending 3 or Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo – “Sakura Nagashi” (桜流し; Flowing Cherry Blossoms/Cherry Blossoms Sinking) by Hikaru Utada. The 4th & Final ending has yet to be revealed, it will probably be sung by Hikaru Utada (most likely); its slated for fall 2013 (or Holiday).
Hikaru Utada’s official site is http://www.emimusic.jp/hikki/release/
Most of you should be familiar of Hiakru Utada songs in Rebuild of Evangelion, but she did Freedom themes.
Finally, Summer is around the corner and its time for some new anime to watch. I’ll be watching 2 anime this summer as the other anime series that will be broadcast are sequels & season 2/3 types while others don’t really interest me much enough for me to watch or so.
So first anime of summer 2013 I’ll be watching is Kamisama no Inai Nichiyōbi or The Sunday without God, it’ll begin airing on July 6, 2013 at 1:30 AM JST on Tokyo MX. The first opening will be “Birth” by Eri Kitamura and the single will be released on Aug 7, 2013; the first ending will be “Owaranai Melody wo Utaidashimashita. (終わらないメロディーを歌いだしました。; I Sing This Never-ending Melody.)” by Mikako Komatsu and the single will be released on Jul 24, 2013.
Eri Kitamura did quite alot of anime theme song performance, so most of you should be familiar with her song as well as her voice acting. Mikako Komatsu did quite alot of voice acting, but did K ED & Mouretsu Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) ED, so some of you may be familiar with her songs already as well as he voice acting..
The last anime of summer 2013 I’ll b watch is Rozen Maiden (2013), it’ll begin airing on July 4 , 2013 at 1:58 AM JST on TBS. Please note this is a new series that is adapting the 2008 manga, so it’s not a reboot or a continuation. The first opening will be “Watashi no Bara wo Haminasai (私の薔薇を喰みなさい;Eat My Roses)” by ALI PROJECT and the single will be released on Jul 24, 2013; the first ending will be “Alternative” by Annabel and the single will be released on Aug 7, 2013.
You should be pretty much be familiar with ALI PROJECT’s music by now, if not, then what have been watching. Most of you are probably familiar with Annabel’s music already, but I only know she did Caanan ED.
That took a long while for me to type them out, that is pretty much all the updates & summer anime I’ll be watching for the time being.
EDIT (07/01/13): I forgot to mention that Naruto Shippuuden OP13, “Niwaka Ame ni mo Makezu” (ニワカ雨ニモ負ケズ; Not Even Giving In To the Sudden Rain) by NICO Touches the Walls, has a release date. The single will be out Jul 10, 2013.
Have a nice day or night, wherever your reading from.
