Yesterday, February 18th, was THAT day. Perhaps you don't know what I mean, so I'll educate you: every anime season, as I'm sure many readers know, the full versions of various anime opening and ending themes are released. Since they all come out at different times, we usually have to play the waiting game for each individual song. However, there is one major exception: a day I call 'The J-Pop Drop' day (think that name sounds lame? TOO BAD I've been calling it that in my head for a while now, and I'm not about to change it). Most music usually drops on Wednesdays with a few exceptions. The J-Pop Drop occurs usually about halfway through the season on a Wednesday, which just so happened to be yesterday. While there were tons on titles, here are the highlights:

That was just a part of yesterday's releases, and combined with past and future releases from this season I am sure any J-Pop fan will find something they want to listen to. If you want, I highly recommend buying physical versions from amazon.co.jp or cdjapan.com.
