Well, to say I’m disappointed would be an understatement. These songs in this order help a little, though.

Awesome Music Thursday: Suppuration ~core~

Another KOTOKO song; this one’s a little more intense than usual for her.

“Suppuration ~core~” was used in episode 5 of Kannazuki no Miko, for the fight between Souma and Tsubasa. (Though it is arguably even more applicable to Chikane and Himeko’s situation in episode 11, so it may be considered a bit of foreshadowing.)

The song with lyrics:

Kannazuki no Miko: Overview

Honestly, I don’t even know if I should call Kannazuki no Miko a “modern classic”, “cult classic”, or just plain “classic”, and difficulties in describing it briefly go well past that. Two things I can say for certain are that there are still people who consider it greatest yuri anime, and that both its defenders and detractors often have very strong feelings about it.

Note: I have a lot to say and intend to spread it out over multiple posts. This one won’t have anything about the most controversial aspects of the series, or the biggest spoilers.

Someone could say that, based on the early episodes, calling it yuri as I did above is itself a spoiler, but to this I say the opening makes it pretty clear who the official couple is.

Song Challenge Day 11: Summer song

“A song that reminds you of summer”

Summer’s either already over or almost over depending on what country’s definitions of the seasons you use. Summer used to be my favorite season but most of the recent ones have been hot enough to make me impatient for autumn.

“Second Flight” by KOTOKO feels pretty summer-y to me. Of course being the opening of Onegai Twins (Please Twins) contributes to that, but it’s not just that. Seriously, the other videos of this song that mix in winter imagery of the characters just feel wrong.
