Ayane – Arrival of Tears PV (11eyes OP)


I finally got my hands on Ayane’s newest PV, “Arrival of Tears”. Since the single’s release a few days ago, I’ve been listening to the full version of the song a fair bit and it’s quickly grown on me. It’s currently on my playlist and mp3 player and will probably be a mainstay there for a while. Back in my post about the first episode of 11eyes, I mentioned how Ayane sounds freakishly similar to Mizuki Nana at times. While I still feel that’s the case when she sings certain notes, I’ve listened to Ayane’s songs enough now to be able to tell them apart fairly easily now. That said, I would still love to hear Ayane sing one of Mizuki Nana’s songs or vice-versa just so I can be in awe.

As for the PV itself, it reminds me a bit of her “cloudier sky” one, except it’s completely 11eyes-themed with the Red Night and black moon. (Pretty cool.) Seeing as Ayane performed songs for the original visual novel and the Xbox 360 port “11eyes Crossover”, I guess it’s only fitting that the PV somewhat reflects the story of 11eyes. I tend to enjoy PVs that have some connection to the anime the song’s featured in, but I realize that’s usually the least of their concerns — especially when a song wasn’t written specifically for a show. In any case, I’ve included the anime opening below as well as the visual novel’s “Lunatic Tears…” for some extra 11eyes “feel” should you need it. Enjoy.

    Speaking of Mizuki Nana, the PV for White Album’s OP “Mugen” is out. It’s good!

    Now that you’ve mentioned it, she does sound a lot like Mizuki Nana, but only at various pitches.

    The PV is great! I’ve ordered the single two days ago, should arrive soon, hopefully. Anyways, parts of the PV reminds me of Itou Kanako’s PV F.D.D somehow.

    Christ, I never noticed how similar they sound. However, their singing styles are pretty different and easily differentiable imo. The thought sort of makes the comparison hard to shake off though.

    Thanks for the great links, Divine. But there is also another OP for the crossover to xBox360 called “Endless Tears” . All three songs have the same theme for 11eyes.

    Anyways, Great Song!

    Yeah, I didn’t get a chance to upload my own copy of the Crossover OP, but it’s here if anyone else is interested in more Ayane songs.

    Is it just me, or the chorus really is in hungarian? Since the episode titles and narration are, i wouldn’t be surprised…

    I really would love to have that song in full version, can anyone tell me where to get it?
