Title: Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! | Artist: Konomi Suzuki and Kiba of Akiba | Show: Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui!
Description: The opening theme to WataMote performed by Kiba of Akiba and Konomi Suzuki and my personal favourite opening of 2013 (Suck it attack on titan)
Why you picked it: Outside of Anime I listen to a lot of metal music. I have avoided using any tracks which are heavy as due to the theme of the month or that I had other songs I had in mind. I like to think I’m not just a metal head and that I have a varied taste in music.
However, now I have no reason not to post this song that I have been putting off posting since February and I get to post one of my all time favourite anime songs!..from one of the shows I found hardest to sit through:
WataMote’s opening is an odd mix of heavy metal, j-pop vocals and even a bit of Jazz (in the first verse break) and that’s not forgetting the crazy electronic breakdown in the middle of the full version (See above) and despite not having my favoured instrument of choice (strings) It more than makes up for it with it’s heavy guitars and drums.
It’s also used in the show really well for example in episode 10 (Minor spoilers) where tomoko’s screams of anguish blends in to the main theme and again at the end of the final episode.
I’ve said pretty much all I wanted to about this song so I’m going to end with one final video. A live version with 120% more drum solo! Enjoy:
