Top 30 Anime Songs #14

"Abnormalize" by Ling Tosite Sigure (Psycho-Pass OP1)

Why I Like This Song?
There are some songs that are just amazingly wonderful songs simply because of how atypical or unusual they are, and “Abnormalize” is one of those songs.  While I’ve enjoyed Ling Tosite Sigure’s indie rock style as well as way the band utilizes the guitar and drums in their songs for quite some time, I think the thing that makes the band for me, and especially this song, is the vocals.  There’s just something so incredibly haunting about the high pitched singing, wailing, and screaming that’s even more apparent when the male and female vocalists are harmonizing together.  Combined with the frantic drumming and almost chaotic switching between strumming and picking, this song is just really haunting, which is not only balances with the lyrics really well, but it also was just perfect for a show like Psycho-Pass.

“Isn’t it funny.I’m enjoying my hatred so much more than i ever enjoyed love. Love is temperamental. Tiring. It makes demands. Love uses you, changes its mind. But hatred, now, that’s something you can use. Sculpt. Wield. It’s hard, or soft, however you need it. Love humiliates you, but Hatred cradles you.” ― Janet Fitch,  White Oleander

Top 30 Anime Songs #15



"Bird" by Yuya Matsushita (Black Butler II ED)


Why I Like This Song?
I’d be lying if I said that I had some really profound reason for loving this song as much I do, and while this song has amazing lyrics and is a good song all around, I love it because it’s pretty.  The lyrics are pretty.  The melody is pretty.  Yuya Matsushita is pretty.  What I love about Matsushita as a vocalist is the smoothness in his voice.  It’s a smoothness that many vocalists without classical training don’t have, and for this song, it is just perfect.  Yes, there isn’t that gritty, rawness that is typically very attractive about the majority of anime OP and ED songs, but considering the circumstances of this sequel series, the more sophisticated and classical sound is just perfect.
It’s just SO pretty!

Ah, April.  Spring is in the air and it’s the season of rebirth, so it may seem as if AnoHana is a bit of a poor choice—at least ironic in some way—but I feel that it’s appropriate and was compelled to go that route.  Even though the entirety of AnoHana centers around death, there’s rebirth throughout the series.  Relationships that were torn apart are mended, feelings that remained hidden were let go, and individuals who were crushed by the weight of their own thoughts and feelings were relieved.  If that’s not a good example of the idea of rebirth as a theme, then I don’t know what is.

Of course, flowers are also very spring-time things, and considering AnoHana's title, I believe it's appropriate.
