Best of: 暁Records!

Best of their YouTube releases, at least.
The songs that I’ve covered here, once per week, until there were none left to write about! Time flies.

I figure I can’t just end it there. I also have no idea when they will add another song. It’s been 3 months, so maybe soon, but it all depends on whoever is creating the PVs for their songs, because that seems to be the requirement for them to put a song on the YouTube channel for all to hear.

More Songs

There are just so many good songs in anime!
Just going to jump right into it.

Neon Genesis Evangelion OP

A Cruel Angel’s Thesis

Love this one. It’s really catchy, which is my #1 criteria with these songs – it’s what makes me want to listen to the opening / ending of an anime every episode.

Some Songs I Like

If there’s one thing that can take an anime to the next level, its a good soundtrack. I can’t help but get hooked on some of the songs used in anime. For this post I’ll show four songs that I like, although I definitely have way more than four I’d like to share and probably will share more in future posts. Keep in mind I’m not ranking any of these (although I may prefer one over another).

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso OP1

Hikaru Nara – If We Shine

Something about this song really brightens my day – which makes it the perfect song choice for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. I decided to post the full song as it really is a beautiful song – I really love music with a catchy melody. The accoustic guitar and brass make a great accompaniment, but what really makes this song is the vocals. Some songs you have to hear multiple times to develop an attachment to, but with this song the first chorus is enough – simply amazing.
