Anxiously awaiting Destin HistoireFebruary 21, 2011 at 1:26 am | Posted in Music, yoshiki*lisa, _random rants | Leave a comment
I can’t remember the last time I anticipated a J-Pop song’s full release so much.
Destin Histoire, the opening to the anime GOSICK and the debut single of newcomer yoshiki*lisa (unless that’s just another name for a previously released singer) has been my obsession for the past two weeks.
The song reminds me of why I got into anime music in the first place, it’s everything an anime opening should be. It’s hard to describe, but it’s got the whole lighthearted opening/”welcoming you” feel with a slightly sad undertone. The melody is catchy with a nostalgic tint to it. The singer’s voice is not particularly amazing, but it suits the song well.
This is going to become one of those anime “classics” on my iPod in the years to come, by that I mean a song that I’ll never get tired of, a perennial favorite. There was Younha’s Houkiboshi in 2005, supercell’s Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari in 2009, and I’m pretty sure Destin Histoire will snag the 2011 spot.

The full single for Destin Histoire is out March 2nd.
