I couldn’t quite grasp the concept of the music video, but that maniac girl used to be me back in junior high (they were stressful times). I might have had more fun if I had a toilet cubicle as cool as this one. Hiromu Akita explained the concept behind the video on the official Youtube channel: A physical installation music video that showcases a contemporary … Continue reading amazarashi 「スピードと摩擦」Speed & Friction MV

So the day finally arrived. Season 2 of Tokyo Ghoul (aka Tokyo Ghoul √A) aired on January 8, and I finally got to hear my favorite band as part of a hit anime series.
I don’t follow many artistes, but when I do, I stick with them for years. RADWIMPS and amazarashi are probably the only two that I’ve followed, and it’s no secret how much I love these guys. Their creative energy is infectious.
I don’t have much to say about the anime itself – it feels a little too early to say anything about it. But I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t expect much from the ending theme.
UPDATE (25 Jan): Finding a video has become a real pain in the ass when Youtube keeps taking it down. Wait till February!
I’ll say this right out: this song did not disappoint. The rhythm is catchy, the lyrics are beautiful, and the arrangement is flawless. And yet, immediately after hearing it, I couldn’t help but feel what a sell-out it seemed.
Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine announced on Thursday that the band amazarashi will perform the ending song for the second season based on Sui Ishida’sTokyo Ghoul manga. The band will release the single ”Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku” (「季節は次々死んでいく」Seasons Dying One After Another) on February 18, 2015.
