I like all the OP/ED songs of the 1st season, especially Hishoku no Sora - my favorite. I'm still evaluating the 2nd season songs. Usually it takes time for the songs to grow on you.

All the OP scenes of Shana are extremely well done. Really liked Joint and can't wait for the CD release.

Honestly to me the Shana series has several of the best OP scenes and music I've ever seen.. Really it's that good.

The full versions of JOINT and triangle are up at the usual place! I must say, both songs kick major ass. I'll leave you guys to form your own opinions!

I'd have to agree with you on many, many levels there.

I must say, triangle is definately my favorite out of the two songs. There's so muc emotion in it and I can definately relate to the lyrics.

Listened to the OP song (full version):

Pretty good.

I was never a fan of the ED, so I didn't listen to it.

Just finished listening to the full version of joint. I was expecting there to be a guitar solo since they had that heavy metal intro so I'm a bit disappointed that there wasn't one. Other than that, another great song from this series.

Downloaded the OP and ED last night listened to them on the way to work. Kwada Mami has been putting out some good stuff over the past year. Joint and Triangle are excellent tracks now it time to drive my co workers crazy by putting them on repeat ALL DAY Mwahhhhh

Geez, both of Kawada Mami's Shana OPs flat-out rock.

I'm loving the full cut of Joint; it's got the kind of soaring melody to which I'm especially partial and the same infectious energy that made Hishoku no Sora so fun to listen to. Even better, the hard-edged intro doesn't seem nearly as invasive when the song isn't abridged for TV.

I found joint to be alot more dark and pervasive then the semi happy sort of tone i got from Hishoki no Sora. This really makes it very enjoyable, the guitar intro was amazing.

I'd have to say Joint is one of the best songs i've heard in quite a while.

I think Mami Kawada's ability to adapt to the style of music at hand is what her and her music so enjoyable. Joint upbeat guitar rifts and darker edge appeal to fans who like a little harder music while While Triangle has a more pop sound that is still energetic but gives off a kind of immature innocence. Both styles describe Shana her self to a certain extent.

The build up to the chorus for Joint is just amazing, it felt like all the energy that was stored in the verses were released all at once in the chorus.

I'll have to second what everyone else is saying. Joint is one excellent song.

Did anybody see the PV for JOINT? I saw it, and it looked like Mami pulled off an Evanescence to me.

I prefer the animu JOINT intro to her poor acting. The metal/mechanical renderings are perfect for the intro. If only the whole song was like the intro. Less vocals, more instruments. I prefer the instrumental version now, actually.

As for the ED, whatever that's called, I think I deleted it by accident. Oh well. Nothing of value was lost, not even the instrumental version.

The PV for JOINT was dissapointing to say the least. It really did look like poor acting for Mami as the scenes depict sad and depressing but she was basically smirking as she sung the song. Also my image of how she sung the chorus was completely shattered. Listening to just the song i felt that she put so much energy and enthusiasm into the chorus but in the PV it didn't look any different from her singing the verses..

Really I've become completely disillusioned from the PV, should of never watched it, the anime OP was way better. Also she looked a bit chubby in the camera, not sure if it's the case of her not being photogenic or that she's just chubby.
