ELISA – Dear My Friend -Mada Minu Mirai he- PV (To Aru Kagaku no Railgun ED1)

 

Also available ahead of its scheduled release (09-11-04) is ELISA‘s ending theme for Railgun. Compared to her previous single earlier this year, “Wonder Wind” (Hayate no Gotoku!! 2nd Season OP1), “Dear My Friend -Towards an Unseen Future-” didn’t take nearly as long to grow on me. Here, her voice sounds slightly lower during the verses, which I find is better in a way. While I’ve liked ELISA’s angelic-like voice since I first heard it in the ef series, it was never a really powerful sounding voice to me. It just never had the “fullness” of say, Mizuki Nana’s voice. Given ELISA’s softer voice, that may simply not be her style, but her singing during the verses (0:16-0:52, 1:36-2:13) already gave me the impression of a more powerful voice. I find it’s a lot less transparent and unassuming then, so I’d personally like to hear more songs like this one. It’s minor, but I somehow picked up on that during my endless repeats of this song. It could just be me though and the fact that I prefer the sound of the somewhat slower verses. (I’m no musician so yeah… -_-;) As for the PV itself, we have ELISA cycling by the beach in a summer dress. Not like we need anything more than that, but the bright sunny setting also suits the upbeat lyrics.

    Hmmm I’ve always been wondering what are the purpose of those giant slabs of white cement cone shaped rocks at the beach for and what they are called? Also if anyone possibly knows the location the pv was filmed

    I think those cone thing meant to absorb wave impact to the wall in case should there be a big wave or sumthin,

    anyway love this PV, love her dress in this PV

    Probably my favourite song since Let It Out from FMA. Elisa has such a beautiful and warming voice.

    The song feels soft. It enable us to calm down after listening… Maybe we should listen it when we feel frustrate and relax…
