My Favourite flumpool Songs

flumpool is a Japanese band. I’ve liked them since 2009! They did the theme songs for the 2008 Jdrama, Bloody Monday. In 2010, they did the theme song for Bloody Monday Season 2. flumpool’s new songs are still amazing. I love them soo much! I especially love Ryuta Yamamura. He’s the vocalist.

Another thing I like about flumpool is that they have songs in Chinese. I don’t know any other Japanese band or singer that have songs in Chinese. Ryuta recently posted a lot of videos of him speaking in Chinese and practising Chinese. He even asked fans to help him learn. T_T

Over the rain (2008)

This is the theme song for Bloody Monday.

残像 / Zanzou (2010)

This is the theme song for Bloody Monday Season 2.

花になれ / Hana ni Nare (2008)

I love the violin in the beginning! I can’t believe this song is from 2008.

証明 / Akashi (2011)

Ashin from the Taiwanese band, Mayday, wrote this song. This is one of flumpool’s Chinese songs. There is also a Japanese version. It’s so beautiful. T_T

HELP (Chinese ver.) (2020)

This came out just a few weeks ago! The Japanese version was released in 2019. I love it.

君に届け / Kimi ni Todoke (2010)

This was the theme song for the Japanese film, Kimi ni Todoke. It’s based on a shojo manga. I think this is one of their more popular songs.

素晴らしき嘘 / Subarashiki Uso (2020)

This is a new song from 2020. I love it.

明日への賛歌 / asu heno sanka

I think this is from 2014. I love the music video so much.

OAOA (2013)

flumpool sang a Japanese cover of Mayday’s 2011 song, OAOA.


These are my favourite flumpool songs. Please give them a listen, their songs are so good.

Unwrapping: Your Name (album)

Your Name. | 君の名は。| Kimi no Na wa. by Radwimps (2016)

soundtrack for Your Name

Anyone else still listen to CDs? This just arrived in the mail.

One of my favourite things about CDs is the cover art booklet. The cover art booklet for this one is gorgeous.

My Spotify Wrapped 2019

Spotify keeps record of the songs and artists you’ve listened to the most each year. Here is my Spotify Wrapped for 2019.

In September of this year, I went to a Man With A Mission concert. I listened to their music A LOT for over a week afterwards.

My #1 artist on Spotify was Joker Xue. I interpreted the song meaning of 動物世界 ‘Animal World’ in a blog post.

Al from Slice of Alfredo! runs a podcast and it’s on Spotify. You should check it out. 🙂 He listened to a song by BiSH in one of them (I requested the artist!).

I got into BiSH thanks to my good friend, Tim, from Thoughts That Move.

Mm, I would say that Spotify only has about 60% of the songs I like. It also doesn’t have many songs by my favourite singers, Hua Chenyu and Kwang-ho Hong (they aren’t available in my region, at least).

My Top Anime Openings [Updated]

I wrote a post called, My Top 10 Anime Openings back in August 2017. My music tastes have changed! I’ve also watched more anime since then. These aren’t in any particular order, except for Unravel at the top of the list.

1. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) 

This is not only my favourite anime opening, but it’s also my favourite song of all time. I love everything about Unravel. I love the lyrics, TK’s unique voice, and the instrumental music. I also love the visuals of the Tokyo Ghoul opening.

Who is that inside of me?

Here in this broken-down, broken-down world, 

you laugh, without seeing a thing

I’m just so damaged, I hold my breath and freeze 

… 

In this twisted world, I’m gradually growing transparent and vanishing 

2. Ling Tosite Sigure – Abnormalize (Psychopass) 

I really love TK’s voice.

3. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – katharsis (Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2) 

4. MAN WITH A MISSION – My Hero (Inuyashiki)

Inuyashiki is one of my favourite anime.

5. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Let Me Hear (Parasyte) 

Anime openings are shortened versions of songs but the best part of Let Me Hear (1:45) is cut in the anime opening. =_= Here’s the music video.

6. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Chase the Light! (Kaiji Season 2)

If you like this song, you should listen to the full version.

7. BiSH – PAiNT it BLACK (Black Clover Opening 2) 

I didn’t discover the idol group through anime openings. I think they’re really cool. I recommend their song, GiANT KiLLERS.


Other anime openings:

  • Vickeblanka – Black Rover (Black Clover Opening 3)
  • Sumika – Fiction (Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii)
  • Kana-Boom – Silhouette (Naruto Shippuden Opening 16)
  • amazarashi – Sora ni Utaeba (My Hero Academia Season 2 Opening 2)
  • Kenshi Yonezu – Peace Sign (My Hero Academia Opening 2)
  • Dean Fujioka – History Maker (Yuri!!! on Ice)
  • Nightmare – The World (Death Note)
  • The Oral Cigarettes – Kyouran Hey Kids! (Noragami Aragato)
  • Ritsuko Okazaki – For Fruits Basket (Fruits Basket)

I’ll also be posting My Top Anime Ending Songs list! A lot of people ask me about the music I listen to. I would say that I like songs if the singer has a really nice voice, if there are drums, or if it has a unique sound.
