I really like the song.

Those who don’t were probably expecting a more rocking tune, but that’s a matter of preference.

It’s also misleading: a more somber and bittersweet song like this one is perfect for the story of the OVA

Well…as long as the anime is good, I don’t care about the opening :D

Yup, it’s basically so – except for the ‘Death Note’ OPs – they’re EPIC.

This is a magnetic piece of music. Attracts in a subtle way. I love it :)

This is lacking the personality to be an opening.

Why? There have been other openings with a similar tone before.

Something more exciting wouldn’t have “more personality” here, it would only be missing the point.

I can certainly agree there have been many songs with a similar tone… If that’s your defence for this, I rest my case…

A beautiful and elegant song, as always, Sakamoto-san.
