In 2011, I stumbled upon Mamoru Miyano's "Orpheus". Since then I have been writing about male seiyuu music. You may find me writing almost essays whenever music is really good (not limited to, but it happens a lot with Soma Saito's music). I also host the male seiyuu-centric podcast, SEIYUU LOUNGE (see Spotify link in this profile).


    • @akashiakaashi My first impressions, and without getting into a long analysis, are: the verses have a good flow – with the bass parts + highs being particularly good -, the chorus however, feels a bit flat in comparison. I’m not a fan of the whole “wow wow” filler on the vocals and I believe the song would work better with ad-libs replacing those parts (it would show much better the voice colors of each member).

      Entertaining track overall however, it doesn’t have that much replay value to me.
      On a first listen, the song comes across as too simplistic and straightforward. There are awesome vocals (for example, Tomoaki Maeno stands out a lot) but no twists in the performance.

      What about you? What is your take on this song? 🙂
