The Summer of Love III: The Music of Fate/Illya

The Summer of Love III continues! This week we are discussing the music of the series!

Tune of the Blog: Study x Study

Tune of the Week(ish) has always been something fun and easy to do for the blog. Like many anime fans, I absolutely adore the music, the opening themes, the ending themes, all of it. I’ve shared a lot of great songs since I started, but as we hit the two-year milestone, there is one song that stands above them all. To celebrate two years of blogging, here it is.

My favorite anime song, my favorite anime ending, and by far one of the best things to ever come out of the genre.

The Summer of Love II: The Music of Date A Live

The Summer of Love II continues! We’ve wrapped up the first season, and we will be starting the second this week! However today I want to talk about something that is near and dear to my heart. I love anime music, and a solid anime opening theme, or ending, can define a show as much as everything else. Like last time, when I discussed the opening and ending songs for High School DxD, I want to do the same with Date A Live. While there are not as many, there is still plenty to talk about. Let’s get into it after the cut!

Tune of the Week(ish): Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card’s Clear

Cardcaptor Sakura is the great work of its genre, the magical girl show whose influence has touched every corner of the anime industry. It’s sequel Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card wasn’t bad by any means, but it also wasn’t the return home many people wanted. I likened it to eating a cake, you love eating it, but you feel nothing after watching it.

You know what was amazing though? It’s first opening theme. The Tune of the Week is the first opening for Clear Card: Clear by Maaya Sakamoto
