The awesome OP single for Umineko no Naku Koro ni: “Katayoku no Tori” (“One Winged Bird”) by Shikata Akiko. Wow, the vocals~
We all know the first track “Katayoku no Tori” for being the OP song for current anime Umineko no Naku Koro ni. The vocals are just killer. Shikata Akiko’s just vocally talented no doubt. I gotta love the epic arrangement. Still getting goosebumps hearing the choir parts.
The second track doesn’t end all the awesomeness. I just gotta love “VII” as well. It’s WICKED!!! It started off very light and then there goes some eerie-ness that starts off the awesomeness in the chorus. Followed by continues overflow of craziness that makes me wonder if Maria’s the one who’s singing lol. I have no idea how to describe it. It’s gothic, classy, rockin’, epic, creepy, eerie, cutesy argh it’s just stunning! I FREAKING LOVE IT TO BITS!!!
If ever Arisa happens to have an anime adaptation, I will demand “VII” to be its OP! XD Now I feel like making a horror anime AMV! Maybe Pandora Hearts, Le Portrait de Petit Cossette or even Umineko itself! XD Or maybe an Arisa MMV XD… BTW, needs lyrics and translations for this song plox.
