1. Shuuketsu no Sono e

It’s interesting when you begin the song with some chanting before getting into a anime-ish song.  It actually sounds different from her past two singles to make it stand out and the music sounds like something from the 90’s and I liked that throwback quite a lot.  It’ll take a bit of time to decide if this is better than “Plenty of grit” but I think it just might be.

2. Shuuketsu no Sono e ~AYANAMI ver.~

So if people remember, Megumi Hayashibara is a seiyuu and one of her more famous roles was voicing AYANAMI in the famous anime “Evangelion”.  Returning to her speaking role/singing, the other version of Shuuketsu no Sono e tones the energy down immensely and leaves the synths, piano, and the beats.  It’s a bit different for a character version of an A-side, but I think it did its job and I like Megumi’s light, almost whispering vocals.



Ending off the “CHOICE” era, Shuuketsu no Sono e might be a little less better than “Plenty of grit/Revolution in the way that the AYANAMI ver. of the song wasn’t too important to remember, but the main song is definitely better sounding and clear cut.  Good single overall.
