Well, as much as I’d like to go on about Friday the 13th or taco madness, Sean, sadly, I’m still stuck on anime themes. In fact, I was playing the Rezelmine theme, and was struck with how clearly derivitive it was of another favorite anime theme of mine, the Lum No Love song, Urusei Yatsura’s tv opening in the US. (In Japan, it would be the first tv series opening.)

But then, you’ve already played that theme here, Sean. So instead, I’ll play some of the other songs from that rather wacky and entertaining anime:

Monotone no Natsu (Monochrome Summer) – Kayoko Matsunaga

This is the opening theme to the first Uresei Yatsura OVA, Inaba the Dreammaker. The song has a certain energy about it I like. And I don’t know what it is, but any anime based on Rumiko Takahashi’s works (such as Ranma 1/2) always seems to have good openings. And endings, of course.

Sorry…- Kanako Narisumi

This is the ending to the same OVA. Also a good song.

Kokorobosoi na (Forlorn Aren’t You) – Helen Sasano

And this is the ending to the second tv season. Once this gets started, I found this to be very catchy.
