5. Mirai e… (Anime Edit) [(Limited edition bonus track)

Right from the start of the song, Mirai e… already displays beautiful instrumentals and Himeka gives out a very gentle yet graceful vocal performance. I really loved how she gives out some sort of high pitch vibrato and power throughout the chrous. Sometimes I would like to wonder how Himeka got so good with her Japanese along with her amazing vocal performance! There’s also a really long orchestrated instrumental during the middle of the song which makes the arrangement even more graceful! I really liked how there was more power in the vocals near the end of the song as well. Definitely a new favorite song of mines! (I had this on repeat over 20 times even though the song is like six minutes long!)

In contrast to the very long and elegant Mirai e…, Winding Road is around four minutes long with a more aggressive arrangement. I could really see this being an anime opening theme. This is probably the type of song that’s only worth listening during the first two repeats of the chorus, otherwise, I would just skip on to the next track since there’s pretty much the same melody during the rest of the song. However, she still does have great vocals!
