H.Doi's opinions

In general Megumi's songs for these anime are getting closer and closer to main stream popular music. I like some of the songs, and there isn't much that I dislike, but it is kind of boring.

I still prefer Enfleurage.

Sebastien's opinions

Fantastic ! This album is fantastic !! This album not contains a default song. For me "Bertemu" is 2nd favorite album. "Hanareteitemo" is perfect : the melody is totally beautiful and Megumi did play this song perfectly. A must !!! "Matsuri Uta" is the vocal version with lyrics from a "BLUE SEED" BGM (this BGM and vocal song without lyrics are avalaible on the album "BLUE SEED ONGAKU HEN Vol. 3").

On this album, there's an Ayanami Rei's version of "Zankoku Na Tenshi no Te-Ze" and "Fly Me To The Moon" ; Megumi did played very well those songs as Rei-chan's voice. The best song of this album is "Midnight Blue".

"Bertemu" is a word from Indonesia, but I do not know the equivalent in English.

My Top 5 ranking : 5, 3, 6, 1, 8.
