*raises hand*

Honestly, I have nothing to worry about Elisa living up to Angela's work. I realise I'm speaking from bias here but still :P

Such numbers were expected when you create such an alliance. At least now we know that all the people who were sacrificed to appease the gods didn't die in vain.

Can You Save My Heart is sung by Momoko Kanade, not Haruka Tomatsu. So no, it's not a Saki character song. Haruka Tomatsu actually sang Good Luck For You in ep5.

Indeed, it seems kind of quick to replace it. I read a few comments of dislike for Angela, but I like their style. I first heard their songs in Sokyuu no Fafner and really liked them. They're distinct (at least, Atsuko's voice seems to be) and give me fond memories of mecha series, so it was nice to have that in Valvrave as well.

Seeing how music-happy this Anime is, I guess they want to make and sell as much music merchandise as they can :P
Hope they released ep6 insert song soon...

When Saki was flying her Carmilla around a bit before the credits the music playing was an orchestral version of the song she sang for the propaganda video so if anything is her theme music it's probably that.

Sunrise is known for their evolving openings and credits and they tend to change the ED a little more than the OP. They usually change the credits song to reflect the shift in the story (so expect some shifts in tone and/or plot this week! )

Also, this isn't really that quick since we are half way through the first season. I know it doesn't feel like it, since it's been all going pretty fast, but yeah, we're actually already half done with season 1.

I liked the insert song too. Hopefully there's a longer version of it.

Tell me about it. Also because of the way they usually love doing segue style endings (this show does it too, Madhouse also seems fond of them) it can sometimes be argued that many of their shows actually have as many different overall ending sequences as they do episodes. The Zegapain Blu-Rays I have reflect this in that there's 26 different creditless versions of the ending. The opening sequence also changes 7 different times throughout the course of the shows run to as you say reflect changes in the course and tone of the story.

Openings and Endings seem very important to Sunrise in general compared to most studios I've found over the years. They always seem to find very good artists and IMO above average and/or unusual songs to be used for their intros and outros and the sequences themselves are usually quite memorable and stand out for me. They take it very seriously , possibly because of their old school approach to anime production, but also because they probably know it's a good way to win favor with sponsors and partners by bringing in a little extra revenue. Some people probably would think of it as a cynical cash grab by trying to work in as many popular songs and artists into the fabric of the anime as possible, but I personally appreciate the extra effort in music production and feel it gives their works a massive edge.

Just started watching Valvrave. It's nuttier than jarful of assorted nuts, but damn is the OP good! I can see why Preserved Roses is #2 on the Japanese charts!!

Do you think Sunrise will likely use Preserved Roses for Valvrave Season 2? It's too good not to be used.

Sorry, it's good but I doubt it. As said above, Sunrise likes evolving OPs so they'll probably have another one.

Is that so? That'll be a pity.

I still remember when Sunrise animated InuYasha and its sequel. Ah, the OPs and ED music were amazing, especially Ayumi Hamasaki, BOA and Do As Infinity!! The OST composed for the series was amazing too!

Pardon the old memories. InuYasha was the show that got me started on anime after all.

I have to say I really like the new ED, it's just as good as the last one and reminds me a lot of the first ED to Code Geass.

Ooof, looks like I'm the only one around here who's not overly fond of the OP. The song comes across as being a bit generic and never quite showcases Nana Mizuki or TM Revolution so well that it lives up to the high billing. The ED with ELISA is a bit better, but the intro... well, not too sure about its ability to function all that well.

For me, the lone bright spot for this anime, musically at least, is Akira Senju's score. That man sure knows how to compose dramatic fare though I'll be curious if his music works well standalone. The last OST of his I listened to was FMA: Brotherhood and I was... less than enthralled with what I heard.
