A melody of desperation… and hope.


This is my first journey through the “100 Days of Anime” Challenge, an ambitious project that I’ll be taking. For the full list of prompts, click here.

“Favorite music in an anime?”

Ouch, from an easy question to one that I’ve had to ponder on all day. Favorite anime soundtrack? I just can’t decide! I will admit that I’ve got a soft spot for anything Myth & Roid as well as the absolutely stunning soundtracks by Hiroyuki Sawano. That being said, rather than choosing favorites, I’ll throw back to an anime I kinda forgot about – specifically its haunting opening.

The energy of the instrumentals and the beautiful vocals feel rebellious – a theme that fits the show perfectly. It’s a catchy beat that highlights the shows action sequences, yet doesn’t ever leave that emotional impact behind, especially during the shows more dramatic moments. It’s that same energy that makes me want to bear arms alongside the remains of humanity against their vampire overlords.

Short and sweet – a small taste of what’s to come.
