Room 208

Elaborate Burn

Fall 2012 anime theme hit list

EGOIST, “Nameless Beasts” (“Namae no Nai Kaibutsu”; Psycho-Pass ED). This is the first EGOIST song I’ve heard where I’ve felt Chelly’s vocals really click; there’s a sultriness to the chorus that was lacking in her previous outings and that fits well with Psycho-Pass’ darker atmosphere. The single will be out on December 5.

Suneohair, “Slow Dance” (Say “I love you.” ED). This one’s already been released as a single; the guitar here is a bit reminiscent of “Red Coat” from the second season of Arakawa Under the Bridge.

Risa Taneda (as Saki Watanabe), “Split Apple” (“Wareta Ringo”; From the New World ED). There’s no release date announced on this yet, which makes me think that a full version of the song won’t show up until the soundtrack is released. Which is a shame, because its stuttering guitar line and overlapping vocals are a real treat.
