SnS II: Blaze by KOTOKO

The new op to Shakugan no Shana II is kinda…well…lame. Well, compared to Joint anyways. I mean if Joint had been the second op and Blaze had been the first and we were being introduced to Joint now then it would be all good and well. But this really, really sucks comapared to Joint. I mean the vocals are so squeeky. NOT BADASS.

However, I looked up what Sociometry means and it’s my new favorite word. <3

EDIT: This song is really growing on me. Specially because at 00:38 the song turns to normal Kotoko and therefore is standable.

    I actually like the melody a lot…
    It would have been a great song if KOTOKO were to sang in her usual voice.

    Yeah. That’s totally it. Why did she have to try and sing so…Kugiyama Rie-ish? It really doesn’t fit the series at all but your right, the melody is really catchy. Also, lots of the battle sequences are really cool (although it looks like Pheles 15 minutes of fame are over).

    I feel like I was the only one to like this song when it first came out! Mwahaha it looks like it is one that has the power to grow on you though! Maybe the full version will make people feel different. :3

    Hopefully. XD It is rather catchy. I’m looking forward to the full version. I’m starting to hope it has a mix of both the annoying voice and the normal voice so it can test my nerves.

    While at first glance i found it a bit disapointing compared to Joint, now i like this song too. It’s not as ear catchy as joint but is really powerfull and elegant in some passages..

    Lame or not, is not what we can say about it~
    If you know about what the lyrics in this song, you’ll find it fit what the story is heading to~
    And 1 more thing, Japs Anime have philosophy in it, Please watch it by heart but not to watch it as a simple story~
    If you want to know what the story is going to be, go read the fiction~
