A Collection of Anime OPs/EDs I Actually Like (Volume Two)

anime osts 1

This is not going to be like my normal posts here on VV. Normally, I have something to say about a particular topic and express it with the most pretentious vocabulary. Instead, today will be a sort of “show off” post where I simply list some anime EDs/OPs I’ve found myself bopping my head to since anime corrupted my soul. I’ll link to each theme so the viewer can also take a listen while I offer short descriptions of the track and what I like about them.

These two series have quite a bit in common—if not directly through their structures or stories, my history with both sure are eerily similar. Continue reading “Entries from the Dead: Natsu no Arashi Akinaichuu/Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead”

Thoughts on Mob Psycho 100 Season Two

I was pretty entertained by Mob Psycho 100‘s first season. Based on its first episode (which I watched prior to leaving the show on-hold as it finished out the season), I wondered if it might take a more normal approach this time around. The episodes that followed only strengthened that assumption, before everything that I never would have expected came flying back at me like a punch from an esper god. My face still hurts.
