With the Summer 2019 anime season reaching or passing the halfway point for most series, I thought it would be a great time as any to look at (or profusely gush over) at the music. More specifically, the many anime openings that are just great listen to. Join me in this sixth edition of Anime Alcove List Tuesday as I list my top 5 anime openings for the Summer 2019 season. Yeah, the title says it all really….
The talent to sing is nothing short of a gift from the divine spirits above, but for those that can master the arcane secrets of musical instruments are nothing short of exceptional. Too much praise in that one sentence? Well, as someone that has learned and use to play 3 different types of instruments over the years, there is something admirable about those that can easily pickup man-made devices and make them produce sound that no mere words can accurately describe. Having only performed once in a orchestral arrangement during my high school years, it really did color my experience and appreciation of what music is and can be. For that reason, this 3rd edition of Anime Alcove List Tuesday will be something of an “ode to joy” to the best anime openings and endings (mainly openings) that really put instrumental skills on display. Yes, feel free to praise me for that clever reference….or don’t.
