Younha – Te wo Tsunaide PV (Jyu Oh Sei ED)
The ending theme song to Jyu Oh Sei, 「手をつないで」 (Te wo Tsunaide) is sung by the popular Korean/Japanese singer Younha. I admit that I didn’t watch any more of the anime past the first episode, but one of the things I did love about it was the ED – some of you may have noticed that I’m a pretty big Younha fan. It’s been a while since she put out a single (not since December of last year). Of her recent singles, I didn’t really like My Lover but I did enjoy Touch. Of course, Houkiboshi still ranks as my favorite of all her songs. My point is that I’ve been looking forward to a new Younha single for a while now. And Te wo Tsunaide pretty much lives up to my expectations from the TV-size version at the end of Jyu Oh Sei. The PV is a bit similar to the part of the ending sequence with the girl standing in the water with the yellow hue on everything. It appears to be filmed on a barge in the middle of the ocean. This is a good song by Younha, one that I’ll be humming/whistling for a few days to come. This PV does make me wonder when we’ll get to see Younha play her piano again. The homegirl song on the Te wo Tsunaide sounds like it’s got that. Anyway, Younha’s Te wo Tsunaide single is set to be released June 7th, 2006.
