Natsumi Kiyoura – Tabi no Tochuu (Spice and Wolf OP single)

Tabi no Tochuu OP single

I have been waiting for this single for so long (now I’m waiting for Blaze because I hate it so much and Wheel of Fortune for the live action Higurashi movie). The ED grew on me too. But I like this better. Yakusoku no Uta is okay, not as good as Tabi no Tochuu though.

While Tabi no Tochuu doesn’t have the Erinyes effect (sounding completly diffrent then you wanted it to…The full version of Erinyes sounded like some gypsy song or something) it does sound less tragic and sad for some parts but then in others it sounds just as haunting and wonderful.

    Is it still not working? I uploaded it again. Hmm…if it doesn’t I’ll try somewhere else but it seems to work for me.

    Great OP, but the full version doesn’t have the same feeling at all. (-.-)

    That’s what I thought.

    Well i don’t think it’s meant to be purely sad, since 旅の途中(tabi no tochuu) means ‘during the journey’, and during their journey, horo and lawrence have their ups and downs. c:

    I was really surprised by the full version, since it seems to rely more on Natsumi Kiyoura’s quiet, haunting vocals in the abridged version. The unabridged version is actually… really loud by comparison. It came to grow on me, though, and now I like it just as much as the short one. She does a fantastic job on the vocals; it’s difficult not to like it. :D
