HiguKai OPED released! Wai~~! Wai~~!

HiguKai

Whee~~ finally out! Naraku no Hana and Taishou-a!

First off, I must say, awesome, awesome covers. Rika and Hanyuu is total <3 :)!

On the songs themselves, I’ll say Naraku no Hana initially wasn’t what I expected. The electronica-ish buildup at the beginning caught me off guard a bit until the familiar slow intro we’ve gotten to love kicks in. The song kinda had some gaps as well in the some of the middle parts and overall, kinda felt empty at times. Still, I’ve grown to love it after a few loops of it.

Taishou-a, meanwhile, is up to expectations and it’s getting really close to be my favorite of the two songs. The slow and melancholic feel of the song really embodies the tragic elements of the Higurashi series.

    I will probably be listening to “Naraku no Hana” 24 seven after I acquire the full version.

    I have to say Eiko Shimamiya really does the song well. It’s one of my favorite OPs.

    Also:

    “Taishou-A” >”why or why not”

    “The slow and melancholic feel of the song really embodies the tragic elements of the Higurashi series.”

    I feel the same way for both songs.

    I don’t know what you mean by empty. The OP sounds quite satisfying to me :D. I love both singles!

    All right, I’ve been waiting for this!

    Gotta say, though…I kinda miss the old first season OP. It just had such a great unsettling creepiness to it.

    taishou.a is the work of bermei.inazawa, who i recognized from dj max portable 2 (lost&found) but apparently he’s pretty big in whatever scene he’s in. fantastic instrumentals to go with solid vocals that suit the music well – first thing i did after listening to the whole thing was put it on my mp3 player.

    naraku no hana isn’t eiko’s best, but imo one of her better efforts. it’s definitely a departure from her OP in the first higurashi series, but i dont think anybody is going to top that track for a long time anyways.

    i wonder if you felt that naraku was a bit empty cuz of the whole reversed-track deal with eiko’s season 1 song. that was just weird… hanrehareharei became something like iieenaaahnreeeuhh, lol

    It felt empty because there was a lot of instrumental parts in the song without lyrics. especially around the 4th min mark.

    Rest of it is awesome, but I felt the song could’ve been done better as a 4 min song than a 5 min one.

    I love instrumental music, but it doesn’t fit very well an OP/ED

    for Naraku no Hana i prefered the TV-size version…the full length version kinda lost the effect it had on me after the first chorus….
