雨が降る (Ame ga furu)

Another fantastic song sung by Maaya Sakamoto. This song is the ending theme for the anime Kurogane no Linebarrels. The single was ranked 9th in the top 10 Oricon charts this week, along with three other anime songs. Quite an achievement for Maaya Sakamoto since this is the second time she’s been on the top 10 charts (her previous single “Triangular” for the opening of Macross Frontier also was on the top 10 Oricon charts.) Back to the song, the song is very calming, but melancholic which is eminent from the lyrics. Maaya Sakamoto’s tone suits the characteristics of the song very well, and was very smooth. When she starts harmonizing bits, especially the echo parts in the chorus, it really contributed to the whole ‘trying to call out to you’ aspect. Although the subject matter of the song is rather sappy (it’s about unrequited love to some extent, it’s cheesy and sappy), it’s still a great song to listen to.

There are many new anime themes that are just stellar, so I’ll post my thoughts on those as well when I’m in the mood.
