1st - the OP to EVOL is an absolute win! Akino and bless4 are awesome! I know I should love the OS' OP but this one has a more vibrant music setting and includes a new set of instruments added to the BGM. However, despite that I can grasp some of what is being said, I still wonder about the actual meaning behind the lyrics. Has anyone translated it yet?

2nd - the OP to the OS is beautiful. Sousei no Aquarion will forever be lodged into my memory along with the lyrics to it. Despite the fact the Elemental Gattai version is slightly better than the original (in my opinion), the heartfelt lyrics are just win. The original holds up very well even now. And so, it's a complete win.

3rd - Go Tight! How many people actually hated this OP? Okay, I understand that it is a little flat considering SnA, but it's still a beautiful intro. The fast paced song didn't seem to live up to its expectations. Well, considering it was second to SnA, who wouldn't blame it? But the animation for the OP did not help this matter. One could expect more for this song. It deserves an action and romantic opening sequence. It is a lovely song though its lyrics lack this slightly.

4th - the OS' soundtrack: can you NOT love it? It is a beautiful soundtrack. Lovely. My favorite would have to be First Love, Final Love. Then I have Gensis of Aquarion - the English is beautiful here. Normally, Japanese are horrible at pronouncing certain English terms but Akino appears to have no problem. Albeit, in EVOL's OP, they do bad at pronouncing "together we can unite the universe" whilst trying to echo. Still, it is lovely. But in First Love, Final Love, my absolute favorite part is with SnA's lyrics inserted. Though it's only an echo, you can hear the chorus lyrics for SnA over the music (sung by the male cast). It makes it a beautiful piece. But that's only the start of the BGM for the series. I await to see what changes are made in EVOL.

5th - I can't attach myself to the ED of EVOL. It wasn't a catchy tune plus I've never liked certain males singing along with females... it was just meh. However, the lyrics are actually very deep and I like them. It's a shame I don't like the male that sings in with her in the ED. It's either that or his voice isn't made for a song like that. Either way, beautiful lyrics, bad vocals on the male side, and lovely artwork.

Sousei No Aquarion 1st OP will forever be the best of all! I like both English and Japanese Version

Go Tight is the shizzy....second OP is bad ass

I can't say much about the ED's because I usually rewind the episodes so I never make it to the ED's of SNA

I love the ED and OP for EVOL. I also love that song that plays when Kagura is doing something epic. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE THE NAME?!?!

"Sousei no Aquarion" is one of the best anime OP for me (both japanese and english version) it was my phone ringtone

"Go Tight" is also a good song.

"Kimi no Shinwa" oh my, I thought no song can match sousei for aquarion but this song appear and I was like 0__0 a worthy successor indeed!

when I heard the piano intro, I know "Gekkou Symphonia" would become a great song (and Akino-Aiki is a plus) one day I will convince someone to do a duet of this song with me LOL

I love Kimi no shinwa.

But I also love the ED to Evol, it just sounds so sweet, and sad at the same time, and it I feel as if it has a lot of emotion to it.

As for the OS, I love Sousei no Aquarion, the first OP, and since they've been playing some of the songs from the OS in Evol, I really do hope they play this one.

I will fangirl so much if they play the OP1 from the OS in Evol.

It's my dream.

It would need a really epic scene to match.

I think there's tiny chance for someone to dislike Sousei no Aquarion
As for Kimi no Shinwa, I've loved it ever since it was used on the PV. Used to watched the PV over and over just to listened to the song

Btw, has anyone ever listened to the Sousei no Aquarion Onii-sama to song? Read it that it was sung by AKINO and AKASHI.

That's because the bless4 siblings were born (apart for AKASHI) and lived within the United States before they moved back to Japan ^^

I liked bless4. Watched the video when they performed Mazinger Z theme and Cha-la Head Cha-la live and it was great

A native speaker once commented it's their Japanese that sound a little off to native speakers. Kinda Daniel Wu to Cantonese speakers I assume.

The ED "Gekkou Symphonia" is pure love to my ears

But the lyrics are so tragic. ;_;

Good thank goodness. By then Aquarion will probably have a new OP though, something else to buy .

The first series changed their OP in the 18th episode, would this be the same for EVOL or are they going for the more traditional route ?

I love Kimi no Shinwa too much to even accept the possibility of them changing it. But if they do, I sure hope they'll put as much effort into the sequence as they did for the first. Genesis' 2nd OP was pretty much an official AMV.

Man,I was really hoping that ED was a one time thing but it looks as though it's here to stay.Well I guess I'll have to live with it.

Ogura Yui should take some lessons from HanaKana in how to do that type of songs.

Right, Album cover is upped in flyingdog website!



... How subtle. /sarcasm

Still haven't gotten any news on the tracks for the OST/Album, but supposedly there will be a lot of vocal tracks (insert songs included) including Paradoxical Zoo and Yunoha no Mori.

Oh, that cover. XDDD

I expected the insert songs, but I wonder about the instrumental tracks. All Kanno tracks are from the Genesis OSTs, why would they re-release them? (Then again, why not?) However, are there enough tracks by whatshername, the other composer, to fill a soundtrack?

I wouldn't mind if they released the new tracks, though. I really want that cute piano piece that played when Amata met Mikono, or when Mikono talked with Yunoha in the latest ep.

4ch explodes in 3... 2... 1...

From what I gather, the "OST" itself is currently classified as "Album". It's pretty much sealing the deal that it will be compilation of songs with that. Dunno who said that this was the OST...

In fact, I think one of the CD included in BD release IS the real OST (new arrangements and music composed/arranged by the composers as opposed to vocal songs).

Edit: Said BD that had OST CD - vol 3. Rumour had it that this BD volume will be having Shrade/Cayenne cover package

The Soundtrack is out, but I was disappointed because they didn't put the instrumental version of Celiane.... I'm love with Fragments of Eve.
