Day 12: Favourite music in anime
I tried to think of this outside of OPs and EDs, so this was a little harder for me. In general, I’m not super observant with stuff like soundtracks.
ARP Backstage Pass was an anime I started watching last season. From what I can gather, and having done very limited research, ARP is an IRL virtual group, and the anime has been made and is set up as a documentary of kinds. The anime is interspersed with CGI cuts of them performing and then at the end has the idols discussing the episode and looking ahead to the next episode. I’ll do a review of it when I’ve finished it, but I’m actually quite enjoying it. The reason I bring it up is that obviously as an idol show, you’d expect it to have songs, and it does, and they’re all so good. One of the songs in particular, The Kiss, has been on repeat for me constantly since I heard it.
I’m sure there’s probably a lot better music out there, but for now, this is what I think of when I think of good music in anime, so I’ll go with it.
As a side note, I was going to choose given, but I haven’t been able to listen to a single song from it since it aired without crying, so for pure replayability and enjoyment, I’ve gone for ARP.
