  1. First one is simple. Northern Cross. May’n can over inject emotion into her singing but for Northern Cross, it sounds fine.

    Curry Song is funny (not as funny as Nippon Egao Hyakkei though), Its like a musical except in the second half, you have someone singing along (badly) karaoke style. If the opponent wasn’t Joint, it would have stood a chance. As the song which got me to watch Shana (still find the anime forgettable), it still stands the test of time.

    Tsuki no Mayu gives the feeling that can best be summarized as “Rise up, rise up and fly”. See VisionS isn’t bad at all but does not give me such a clear and distinct feeling as Tsuki no Mayu though its still not strong enough to make me watch Turn A.

    Groovin’ Magic seems very forgettable but is still better then Beauty of Destiny.

    • Yes. It’s kind of indicative when songs like Outlaw Star ED would be losing in round one against some middling Kalafina offering. It really is just a crapshoot. Or if “you know your readers and voters tastes in musich” etc.

  2. I hope Tsuki no Mayu makes at least the final four. The song is just that good. I’ve listened to Groovin’ Magic way too many times to be still be overly magic’d by it. Still voted for it though duh

    • Yeah I dig See VisionS too. I’m not overly fond of the number of repeats of that first line there are in the full version and the chorus is pretty standard “I’ve stuff” but the I really like the verses and the echo-like structure at the end of each line. But yeah going up against Tsuki no Mayu…

  3. It’s frustrating that See VisionS couldn’t go up against another song like “Beauty of Destiny” (and really, guys? This song?) or a song like “Groovin’ Magic” that it could actually have a change of winning against. ;_;
    “Tsuki no Mayu” is just that good.
