Lucky Star Character Album Vol. 11: Kanata and Soujirou

Lucky Star

Easily the best character song album for Lucky Star. This was truly a definition of a “character song single”.

The first song, “Shiawase Negau Kanata kara” (lit. “Wishing Happiness from afar”) is Kanata’s solo song, done to the tune of the BGM that accompanied her appearance in episode 22. It’s a nice, slow touching song, that sings on Kanata’s hopes and wishes for her family.

Next song, “Onna ha Yume to Musume dake” is Soujirou’s character song, and in spirit with his character, it truly sounds… how should I put it? Gaudy? As a friend of mine puts it, it sounds like a Cantopop song from the 80′s. Not too bad, once you get used to it.

And the last song, “Sekai ga Kiete mo Aishiteru” is a Soujirou x Kanata duet song, and it’s another awesome song, with both of them singing in their character voices, about the journey of their love. Best part of the song has to be when Kanata asks “What’s otaku?” in the middle of the song.

    So pretty! I downloaded and started this album not knowing what was on it, and of course I recognized the first track right away.

    ..and almost wanted to start crying again. >_>

    Kanata’s so pretty.

    Really beautiful song… oh men, I loved that BGM from episode 22, and now hearing it as a song with Sumi-san was perfect. Two thumps yp

    I think that Shiawase Negau Kanata Kara is probably in my Top 3 of favourite songs from the character albums.with Dondake and Bi-shoujo somewhere mixed in. It made me cry without words, I sob louder than a walrus now I listen to this.
