I didn’t know this series still existed. The game is long dead in America. All for NIGHTMARE openings as I discovered them through Death Note like I’m sure plenty of people did.

LMAO I was about to comment that all anime-related visual acts that were active in the past few years have decided to pass on that visual prison anime a few days ago, and now naito are announcing a duel masters (who???) OP track. for whatever reason it’s so funny to me.

@ someone who knows music theory shit better than me - what’s going on in the first verse?? is it just an in-key chord progression i’m not used to, or some modulation between modes?

i know going from aeolian to ionian is pretty usual for these guys, and i hear that in the chorus, but it sounds like there’s movements to lydian/mixolydian before & after? or maybe it’s just a progression i’m not used to hearing & i’m just projecting this modes shit lol

either way love the track, in a way it sounds like if they wrote another song for [anima] with this weird noodly style they’ve had after carpe diem~
vv nice i want more of this

The whole single sounds like stuff they could hace written for Anima or Libido style wise. It’s also good quality, seem like the hiatus has recharged their creativity. I wonder if they will keep the pre-hiatus singles on their next album.

What cought my attention was the third song, Cronophobia. Yomis voice sounds so tired and so heavily pitch corrected is hard to ignore. It does add to the song texture somewhat but I have to wonder if Yomi recorded everything in one day and by the time of recording the last song he was just too wasted. I hope management wasn’t so irresponsible. Either way… it’s interesting to hear that even without being able to make big voice swings yomi’s condition is better and allows him to produce someone that is kinda fine

I miss when naito filmed 2 PVs for every single :’(

do you mean the weird baby voice he’s starting the track with before switching to his regular singing manner? I think he picked it up from VK era of dimlim.

I’m glad he’s trying to pull something new out of that declining thrussy bc. so far I absolutely love their instrumentals ever since they came back, even sinners is no exception (I normally hate anime vk), but his vocals literally kill everything good about their music nowadays.

Yomi’s voice is sounding a lot nicer here.

Surprisingly not bad, his break voice is now more touching than irritating pre-hiatus.
Really like Chronophobia and title track is maybe their best since a long time.
