To get this thread rolling, a quick recap for everything Sora Kake music related up to now.

ALI PROJECT's OP, quite nice for the show. The B-side, "Kishi Otome", was recently used in episode 9 for the ending theme.

The ED is catchy, cute and chibi. Also has the Sora Kake Radio OP sung by MAKO.

Akiha's character song, "YURA-YURA-DREAMER", recently released. Techno beat and a nice job by MAKO. Itsuki's and Honoka's hit shelves in two weeks.

New OP, "Miracle Fly" by Minami Kuribayashi and ED, "Espacio" by Ceui appeared online a few days ago, to be released at the end of April and end of May respectively.

Music by JAM Project, first OST hits at the end of the month.

Whew.

The OP is definitely a winner, even Kaioshin had a better impression of Ali Project now.

Akiha's chara song was pretty nice, I prefer the original ED sung by all 3 of them though. MAKO sounds pretty nice alone, but someone, probably Endo Aya, gave the original version a softer effect at parts and sounds better.

Ah, I hadn't realized that the ED single B-side was the OP for the radio show.

Anyway, to partly repeat myself from what is now the general thread: I wonder which had a larger influence on the choice of Minami Kuribayashi for the second OP; the fact that she did the OPs for My-HiME and My-Otome, or the fact that she did the first ED for the Super Robot Wars anime that I just learned exists (and which I now have to watch due to the SRW aspect as well as the fact that it has a bunch of voice actors I like, including [but not limited to] Norio Wakamoto, Mugihito, and Tomokazu Sugita).

Yea actually the first thing that came to my mind when I saw Minami Kuribayashi for the OP was SRW: Divine Wars.

She sung the ED, wasn't too spectacular but was still pretty nice. I'm not sure if she got the OP2 for Sorakake for that though.

And yea, the only Minami Kuribayashi song I heard before was the SRW: DW ED.

The OP was probably chosen for it's campy feel. The lyrics are so cheesy, yet absolutely perfect for this show. ALI Project does a good job, with their usual over-the-top-ness and that trademark backing music.

The ED is fun, but I found it skippable when I'm watching the eps. Haven't been able to find either single yet.

I dont care what everyone thought of Ali's project. When I saw the OP is by them, i was jumping like monkey lol. The ED, while I admit very catchy, took longer to sink in.

The OP by Minami Kuribayashi? Its the same as MaiHime OP/Ed right? then maybe 2nd OP would take longer to sink in lol.

No, the second OP hasn't begun yet, and won't for awhile.

But recent online stores have revealed that Minami will be doing the second OP when it debuts.

But there was a new ED in episode 9. "Kishi Otome", the B-side from the OP single, was used as the ED for the not-as-we-know-them baseball fest.

Itsuki's "Ruri-iro no Gyakkou" is pretty nice. Probably my favorite of the character songs. Aya Endo's got a good voice, and the song's tune is pretty nice too. Honoka's "Moroi Mirai Kirai" is the most mellow of the three songs, and Yui Makino does a nice job with it. This is the first time I've heard her singing outside of ARIA theme songs, and I like it.

I haven't heard the songs yet, but everyone should listen to Makino's NHK's ED2, Modokashii Sekai no Ue de. One of the best ED I've ever heard, especially when it refers back to the show itself, depressing yet beautiful.

Mellow... well, I guess in the sense of "slow and calm" it's mellow. It's not really mellow in the "laid back and detached from strife" sense, though. I can also find several instances in Honoka's song that seem to be references to Akiha. I was pleasently surprised that the other versions of Uchuu was Shoujo no Tomodachi Saa have different instrumentations (with the except of Akiha's which has the same as the ED version)

The remixes were a pleasant surprise. Akiha's had me thinking that all of them were just going to be simple solos.

EDIT : Listened. Both of them are not bad.

MoroiMiraiKirai is just cute lyrics with a dark alice undertone. Itsuki's theme is just as expected from Tatsh. The latter might make an appearance in the next version of Beatmania IIDX.

And Honoka's version of Uchuu wa Shoujo No Tomadachi is so cuddly.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

...Yui Makino's voice in general is totally cuddly. I mean, it just gives you the feeling of cuddling with a big, fluffy pillow, doesn't it?

Totally. Though Cardcaptor Sakura doesn't give the same vibes. Well this is what she said at the start of her sound cinema...

Spoiler for spoiler + extreme moe and cuteness:


If I have time I will translate it along with her song.
