Spring 2009 Music Appreciation

Title: Namida no Mukou (Across from the Tears)
Artist: Stereo Pony

After experiencing the group’s work on a Bleach ED, I figured that it’ll be an instant favorite, or something decent at the very least. Unfortunately… the vocals don’t match the animation at all. Very disappointing.

Ef ~Tale of Melodies~ – Episode 1 RAW Impressions

Only one word can describe this: Brilliant

Extracted mp3: Click here (yes, it’s also on the site playlist)

I watched this episode RAW so there isn’t much that I could say about it. Animation is as symbolic as ever, if not more so. The music is wonderful as expected from Tenmon. The only one fault I could find… is that the girl(s) don’t seem as cute as Chihiro… That’s a high standard to reach so it’s forgivable with just episode 1 and RAW nonetheless. On the bright side, there’s a nekomimi so it should be playful and lighthearted at the start. However, there is a focus on masks and a forced laugh at the end of the episode so emotions may run high very soon.

This is the kind of series where development is key and it’s expected to be slow. Plenty of time to amaze me even more. :)
