Song of the Week 2nd Half (Wed 4/7/12)

This song still makes me feel sad. Anohana is probably one of the tear-jerking anime of all times.

Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (10 years after Ver.) (「Secret Base ~君がくれたもの~ (10 years after Ver.)」)
(ED song from Anohana)
Performed by: Ai Kayano, Haruka Tomatsu & Saori Hayami
Lyrics & Composition: Machida Norihiko (full lyrics)
Arrangement: Toku Sound Produced by “estlabo”

This was the 2nd cover song based on the original song with the same title by Zone. The 1st one was performed by SCANDAL as one of the ED songs for anime Kyou no Gononi.


We still don’t know the good and the bad of AnoHana anime series.

Sniff.. Sniff… Menma, let’s.. play… hide and seek… again… sniff… sniff… Huh, the show’s over? Sorry, my bad. ;P  Ok, here’s what I need to express about the conclusion of this anime.

In the beginning, I thought that the aim of the story was to grant Meiko’s wish to make sure that she leaves without any regrets after watched a couple of episodes. But when this ep arrives, honestly I have to say, the important thing about the story is the bond of friendship. We all know that Meiko ~Menma~ didn’t like offenses. Furthermore, she don’t want Jinta ~Jintan~ and his childhood friends (Naruko ~Anaru~, Atsumu ~Yukiatsu~, Chiriko ~Tsuruko~ and Tetsudou ~Poppo~) to fight each other just because of the dark past. That’s why she wanted to reunite all of them so they realize how important the friendship is. OK. End. No more spoilers.

Pros: Good storyline and plot that grows according to the situation. Many dramatic and tear-jerking scenes that makes you want to cry… ;_; , but I won’t say that it’s a sad story all the time, so without something that makes you laugh, the story itself will not perfect enough, isn’t it? Nice character design.

Cons: There’s nothing bad at all, only that I’m unsatisfied was the small amount of episodes and some forgettable soundtracks.

Rating: (9.5/10)

Last but not least, it’s a little better than Clannad and Angel Beats!. The best anime of the season yet! Currently #4 in Anime News Network and #32 in MyAnimeList (as of 27/06/11). See ya later in the next noitaminA anime, Bunny Drop.

Many thanks to UTW fansub group for releasing the English subbed for this series.

Aria usually come out first. But today since the Aria release was delayed by UTW due to .ts problem, AnoHana released first. More cameos from another anime coming in this episode especially during the audio/video shop scene, where Jinta were having a temporary part-time job there. So, what are the anime series found there? Can you find it?

Well, another great yet melancholic episode of Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai. (あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない。; lit. We Still Don’t Know The Name of The Flower We Saw That Day.)

Guess what? The TV show in the picture, I’ve seen it before. If I have not mistaken yet, this is another original production from the studio which also producing this series, aired last summer on TV Tokyo. The hint: Anime no Chikara project. The title of the show/series: (find it yourself)
