Are you ever drawn to an anime/games/etc by music alone? Happens to me from time to time, recently thanks to the song アンインストール (Uninstall).
Really love the vocals ^_^ Found out it was the OP to ぼくらの (bokurano) and was immediately interested.
Quick Japanese lesson. Boku == I (normally used by males, slightly informal. young boys and young adults use it most commonly I believe). -ra is an ending that makes the subject plural – so in this case, bokura == we. If you say omaera (omae == you, informal), it means you (plural, i.e. you guys). Finally -no in this case makes the word a possesive, modifying bokura (we) into “our”/”ours”. Usually it’s followed by another word, such as, ‘bokura no sekai’ == ‘our world’ or ‘watashi no manga’ == ‘my manga’.
Anyhow I actually first stumbled upon the song because it was the final track of one of the exit trance CDs I bought! Here’s that version (which I love as well):
Haven’t gotten around to actually watching (or reading… it’s originally from a manga), but it seems like the premise is interesting enough… teenagers fighting to save the world. I don’t want to spoil anything but to elaborate just a tiiiny bit, the circumstances under which they fight are somewhat dire… which seemed to fit really well with OP ^^
You already familiar? What did ya think? Planning on checking it out? Hopefully I’ll have time eventually…
