    March 31, 2024 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Zezezezettai Seiiki is exactly the kind of riot grrrl collaboration song I want from ano and Lilas Ikuta! Two of Japan's most exciting new-generation female vocalists, ano and Lilas Ikuta came together to voice the main characters of the two-part anime feature Dead Dead Demon's Dededede Destruction, and naturally they're also singing the theme songs. Written by ano and composed by TK, Zezezezettai Seiiki is a thoroughly fun, fast and fierce punk rock banger that gets an extra kick from the two singers' distinctive vocal tones. The song echos the predicament and bond of the anime's bestie teenage heroines who try to live normally in a time of absurd war. The lyrics are as playfully catchy,... [read more]

    March 28, 2024 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Two years after revealing her soft and sentimental side in the solo debut EP Like Water, Red Velvet's Wendy lends her voice to more beautiful pieces again in her second mini-album! The K-pop vocalist shows her joyful and bluesy moods in one go through her ethereal vocals in Wish You Hell. Wendy chants "I wish you hell!" in the title track Wish You Hell (Track 1)! The cute, upbeat and addictive pop jam bids farewell to a past self after finding one's true self: "Stuck in a doll, I was always smiling. I'm done with you, don't ever come back. I wish you hell. I don't wish you well. … I wish you hell, I found myself." Wendy's refreshing and crystal-clear vocal tone is the cherry on top for this... [read more]
  • Anytime Anywhere (SINGLE+BLU-RAY) (First Press Limited Edition) (Japan Version)
    milet music anytime
    February 29, 2024 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    milet applies her husky, soulful vocals and songwriting talents to four songs of different vibes in her latest EP Anytime Anywhere. Two of the songs, title track Anytime Anywhere and bliss, are ending themes for the anime Frieren: Beyond Journey's End. Anytime Anywhere (Track 1) begins as a medium-tempo ballad that milet performs with a toned-down, almost conversational touch. The song and her singing build to a soul-freeing refrain and realization: "So if I were to be born again / I would surely choose this place once more / So if we were to meet again / I'd never let you go, I'd choose the present." The song's second verse after the refrain again assumes an intimate and conversational air... [read more]

  • Turn To Me, Mukai-kun (Blu-ray Box) (Japan Version)
    Ten years of singledom can make you clueless
    January 31, 2024 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    It's hard to not get just a tinge of Cherry Magic deja vu from Turn To Me, Mukai-kun when Akaso Eiji appears as a fluffy-haired, thirtysomething salaryman who is trying to decipher his feelings and relationship status. Mukai-kun is slightly less panicky than Cherry Magic's Adachi, but no less sincere and self-analytical on his bumpy journey towards understanding love and himself. Based on Nemu Yoko's manga, the NTV comedy-drama takes a fresh approach to analyzing modern perspectives on romance and relationships through hapless hero Mukai-kun's encounters with different women. Having been single for a decade since getting dumped by his college sweetheart, Mukai-kun is determined to find a... [read more]
