OP and ED is so wonderful and fitting for this anime.

I'm anticipating for the full version, anyway when's it out?

The ED single was released last week, sold 9k for the opening week iirc.

OP Single is due for June 15. (it's not a typo, it's actually more than a month away..)

Personally I'm loving both OP and ED. The visual OP/ED sequences in the anime are also fantastic and they match the musics a lot.

I agree with you! I love both the OP (WHY MUST YOU BE RELEASED IN JUNE!? IT'S TOO FAR AWAY!!!) and the ED! They both fit the show perfectly and I love the singers too!:D The BGMs themselves are also very good!

The OP and ED are very well done. I do not know the artists, but when I play the series through all speakers, the OP and ED sound absolutely fantastic. Good guitar work and very nice vocals. Additionally, the visuals, especially for the OP, are quite good, and very relevant to the story and well coordinated with the music.

The Op is really starting the grow on me, both the song and animation. June 15? really?

I understand the ending is sung by the girl characters, but who sings the opening? They should have made it be Jinta Poppo and Yukiatsu to match.

Also is there a reason they recycled two 10 year old songs for the OP & ED of this anime?

I like the lead-in to the ED. I haven't seen an anime do that since Toradora.

The lead in to the EDs in the previous episodes continue to impress me. It's so subtle and it works wonders each time.

I really really cannot wait for the OP to come out in full. Here's to hoping iTunes Japan will have it ready in time/early (Like they did with Kimi ni Todoke 2).

The OP is 10 years old? O_O

Who was the artist then? o_O

A rock band called Galileo Galilei. Here be a link to a sample of Aoi Shiori: http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/?70005467_SECL-975&70005467_SECL-975_01SFL

Aoi Shiori seems to be taken directly from Galileo Galilei. At least Secret Base was remade from Zone's song.

All clues point to the fact that the OP is an original song created for the show. The credits list Galileo Galilei as the artist and the fact a rock band is involved is no different than any other anime. A search of amazon.co.jp (http://www.amazon.co.jp/Galileo-Galilei/e/B002E48JCG/ref=s9_simh_gw_p15_d0_al1?pf_rd_m=AN1VRQENFRJN5&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0J6K5QA8VKTBPF9PTDZE&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=463376756&pf_rd_i=489986) shows 2009 as the oldest album for the group and as far as I can tell the OP is not on that album. So the song is certainly not 10 years old. The sample linked has the same cover art as the CD to be released June 15.

Unless the real Galileo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_Galilei) knew Japanese and composed a song, the OP is not an oldie but a newbie.

Did everyone already saw the PV for Aoi Shiori? I love how it's shot in the bridge similar to the ones in the actual OP.

The full/longer(?) version of the song is pretty nice too. I'm surprised that the female vocals play a bigger role in the second stanza. At first on the tv-size I thought it's just for background. Reminds me of a mellower Base Ball Bear. I really loved it, can't wait for the single release.

If it doesn't work, go to the band's official site (http://www.galileogalilei.jp/) and click the bottom left ad that says "Music Video".

You'll have to go to the video through the band's official page or else it won't play.

I love this song. Can't wait for the full version.

Secret Base is definitely a cover song.
I think it had also been used as the first ED of Kyou No 5 no 2.
It seems the original songwas performed by ZONE back in 2001.

Oh well, I still enjoy AnoHi's take on it, though.
Having the lead female characters sing it is very touching. Especially since they're actually quite good at doing it.
I won't get bored of this song for a while, that's for sure.

After what feels like an absurd wait, the OP single has been released.

A significant portion of the song is actually a duet with a female vocalist.

I wished they had released an off-vocal version of the single as well. Anyway, love the full version regardless.

Our feelings have been written down over countless pages,
But for some reason, I just can’t fill in this one line of blank space.

I put in a pressed flower as a bookmark and roll along with you on the bike we found thrown away.
We piled up the bricks we’ve forgotten and then tore them back down.

We’re being pulled to the same level, to be equals. All tired out from having fun
I’m sure that we won’t remember the frighteningly blue sky.

In that way, a bundle of sunlight now pushes in my direction.
The two of you are still right there, but I find myself praying that we can meet again.
There must be something wrong with me.

My hand that turns to the next page, and the misanga I fastened with my lips…
Hey, today is today, and that won’t change; if it rains, we can still talk on the phone.
In that way, I now push (Before I knew it, the misanga came off,)
My kindness in your direction. (But for some reason, I can’t say it.)
There really must be something wrong with me.

If you choose any one, it will break with a sound -
That is what love is, I joked, and you laughed.

Good thing, I made it on time. Deciding to pretend not to know, the city went to sleep.
Let’s go to the place where we piled the bricks we’ve forgotten.

Running up the hill that looks out over the sea, under the frighteningly blue sky,
My right hand holds a soda, and my left hand is always searching for you.

In that way, with my two occupied arms, I embrace the spring wind.
Time is still ours to spend, so I’d love it if you wouldn’t say
That we’ll forget this day someday.

In that way, the present comes toward me without asking me any questions.
I suppose the two of you are still right there. “Oh, right, the words to fill in the blank are-”
No, I won’t say it just yet.

My hand that turns to the next page, and the misanga I untied with my lips…
The first train of the day, and a sparse bit of happiness… Hey, today is today, and that won’t change.

There really must be something wrong with me.

Anyway.
I absolutely love the songs in the OP single!
It was pleasantly surprising to hear the full opening. :)

No, I meant that I wish there was a full version of this songs that is SUNG by the voice actresses. I know this is a cover song, which means there's a full version online by the original band. But I meant the full version of the cover. If there's already one of those, then please link lol It'd be much appreciated.

The ending single, which came out shortly after the series started airing, has the full version of the ending, which is a cover of the full version of ZONE's "Secret Base" sung by the voice actresses.

If anyone is feeling unemotional after the finale, here's a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2tWtTA4vjM) of ZONE, the original artists behind "Secret Base", performing it as the last encore of their farewell concert in 2005.

Well, the title of the OSTs is "REMEDIOS Original Soundtrack Vol.1/2", so strictly speaking the OSTs are collections of songs written by REMEDIOS that are used in Anohana.

I really wish that the OP/ED singles included the TV length versions; having to hear 20 extra verses on both songs really ruins the effect for me.

2011-07-06, 22:14
Don't the soundtracks for a series usually include the tv length songs? You're not the only person who likes the tv version more than the full versions (for any series) so I'm sure it's released somewhere.

Speaking of Secret Base, what do you think of 約束(Promise) ~August.10years later~? It is the sequel song to Secret Base that came out this year, in August I believe. Not quite as memorable a tune as Secret Base. Also it looks the 2 friends have not met up yet. Given the timing of the release it does seem that Ano Hana had some influence on the song, most prominently with the reference to fireworks.

Omg.. I can hardly believe what i listened to. The ED by Ai Kayano is so amazing. Although i have yet to watch the anime but i happen to find this song to be the top 10 and I am so glad that I downloaded it. Words can't explain the awesome-ness of this piece of music.

The opening was nice, but that ending song with the accompanying credits is just stunning. The contrast between the girls as adorable children and their mature adult counterparts is so simply portrayed that it's genius.
