J-tunes daily: Supercell - Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari



Song of the day
Supercell - Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari
Sung by now ex Supercell vocalist Nagi Yanagi, "Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari" was used as the the ending theme to the popular Sh┼Źnen anime "Bakemonogatari" The song recounts the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively).

Originating from the Chinese Qixi festival, and later adopted by Japan to be celebrated with the festival Tanabata (meaning "Evening of the seventh"), legend goes that the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.


Powerful and expressive, with beautiful, melodic vocals and poppy, pleasant beats. "Kimi No Shiranai Monogatari" encapsulates many of the the best elements of J-pop, from its catchy, rhythmic vocal track to its rich, varied accompaniment. At just under 6 minuets long, the song may seem like it could drag on a little, but for the most part it does incredibly well to deliver an uplifting and enjoyable experience from beginning to end.
