“The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” outro theme ♪♪~

I just noticed that they've already begun releasing special editions of "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya"'s second season!! And it's really interesting that even the Japanese releases for this series are including an additional English subtitle track~….and while I'm surely not that familiar with too many anime series I do think that most do no include subtitles outside of Japanese? I'm thinking that the last promotion for the first series that was done here in the U.S. must have surely made a good impression on marketers in Japan, showing just how much support the fans here give to anime and "Haruhi" definitely has a special way of *endearing* you to watch and I think it's even true for the casual anime fan as well here in the U.S.~. While it's so so tempting for sure I do think I'm going to restrain myself and wait for the domestic release still….hoping for an all inclusive single box set and I know I'm much too spoiled to *wish* for such things~ (。ーωー。)

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya "Tomare!" CD single can be ordered here at Cdjapan.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya "Tomare!" CD single can be ordered here at YesAsia.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya "Tomare!" CD single can be ordered here at HMV Japan.

01 止マレ!
Hirano Aya, Chihara Minori & Goto Yuko

Both tracks here are very *charming* and with the trio of Hirano♥Aya, Chihara Minori & Goto Yuko who do the seiyuu work for their on screen personalities "Haruhi", "Yuki" & "Mikuru" respectfully, all in the mix for both songs♪♪~ it really gives one visions of their anime counterparts performing these in cellullose heaven~. And their voices sound so different while out of character and it's especially notable with Goto Yuko's vocals as her very very cuddly and mouse~y♥ character "Mikuru" is heard here in a very very different light~. ^ ^

"Tomare!"'s (which serves as the ending theme for the second series…the second series opening theme song can be found here) rockin' composition pays homage to what this series is so much about…..pure energy!! and one most mischievous and aggressive (゜ロ゜ノ)ノ Haruhi! ♥ No matter what the subject matter anime series theme songs seem to always match so well to the feel and transgressions of particular characters….indeed not unlike direct extentions rather than aesthetic wrappings and through watching an entire series and just knowing the opening & closing theme songs so well by series end they can surely trigger memories of particular scenes, characters and plots alike even when listened to aside from watching the series~. So much is the case with drama theme~ songs also I think~.

"Tomare!"'s coupling with track "Senzaiteki taiyou no shoumei" (I hope I read that correctly! 😛 ) while a much more laid back track is nonetheless *enchanting* in its composition and in particular I really love the solo lines by each seiyuu during its verses which lead up to a chorus is absolutely cheery (^q^) and *cute*~! While most of the song is *bouncy* with a mid tempo feel….I also love so much the little middle break which moves to a jazzy feel which comes complete with a guitar solo very reminiscent of Wes Montgomery or George Benson~.

    I Like it, I've never seen an episode of the anime, maybe I'll pick up the box set of season 1. I always thought the artwork was amazing & Haruhi is soooo cute!


  2. I think you'll really love the main male character "Kyon's" narrations throughout the episodes as it's really amusing to be able to hear what a person is really thinking and just not saying all the time~. =) It's sort of out there but at the same time really *engaging* I think. The extras in the U.S. box set are so *amazing* too!! There's so much in depth and candid footage with Hirano♥Aya, Chiharu Minori & Goto Yuko and particularly with Hirano♥Aya as you get to see her in the recording studio working with her producer, she visits the anime studio where "Haruhi" is being created and presents them with the *cutest*!!! gift which she drew herself♥, commercial shooting which has cute moments too and her fan meet & greet tour around Japan. I have a few clips here in case you're curious to see a tiny preview. =)
