Random Curiosity

Fate/Zero – 01 »

Aoi Eir – MEMORIA PV (Fate/Zero ED)


It feels like it’s been forever since I last posted about a music video, but the ending theme for the upcoming Fate/Zero anime caught my attention in all the promo videos and made me want to share the clip that recently showed up on new female artist Aoi Eir’s website. (For whatever reason, they don’t want to reveal her face just yet.)

I found myself rewatching the Fate/Zero character clips just to hear parts of the chorus, so it’s nice to finally hear more of the song. The full version’s floating around the Internet airwaves ahead of its October 19th release date too, having been played over the radio. I’ve included it below for your listening pleasure (and to get it stuck in your head like it is mine). Judging from the season poll, Fate/Zero is one of the most anticipated new shows this fall, so it looks like I’m not the only one who’s going to be hearing a lot of this song.

* Updated with full version of PV.

    More to add that this is the most anticipated show this season (next to Guilty Crown). Coming from the lights novels and the mood of this music, the show is going to be deep and awesome.

    ooh quite interesting, seems like they’re going with the mysterious singer routine for this one

    Thanks for posting these links up. Not one of the best MVs/songs I’ve seen/heard, but interesting nevertheless.

    Fate/Zero is definitely in my top 5 to watch list. I like that its a prequel to.

    I love this song, but the My Dearest by supercell from Guilty Crown caught my attention more :D

    • September 22, 2011 at 5:57 pmHrmmm

      Agree with this. Both sound good but My Dearest just rings better with me.

  • September 22, 2011 at 5:58 pmoliviaven

    LOL maybe the lineup for this season is too strong, that’s why there are way less anime compared to spring :D

    I’m definitely looking forward to Fate/Zero, thanks for posting the link to the full song^^

    Too many good song and too many good anime this fall

    what a busy schedule

  • September 22, 2011 at 8:07 pmKosmos

    @ricz
    I’m already planning on watching 13 out of the 25 fall series ^^; Over 5 hours of anime per week~!

    Is it alright to watch Fate/Zero if I didn’t watch fate stay night?

    • September 22, 2011 at 9:34 pmricz

      Yes
      but it’s more enjoyable if you watch FSN

      Fate/zero is the prequel of FSN

      Watch the movie instead of the anime if you find the anime a Zzzzzz fest like i did.

    • September 23, 2011 at 11:09 pmHrmmm

      Also. If you find the TV movies a bore like I did I suggest you watch Unlimited Blade Works – after rushing through the tv movies that is. It might just change your opinion ;D

      • September 25, 2011 at 9:06 amAnnoymous

        “tv movies”?What are you talking about?

  • September 22, 2011 at 9:18 pmryuzaki21

    this song doesnt leave any good impression on me.

  • September 22, 2011 at 11:42 pmdrcnch

    I’m enjoying this song, but I’m wierded out by the fact that she doesn’t show her mouth. Why!? I must know! Is she missing all her teeth? Is it a harelip? Is she just trying to be wierdly mysterious? Is she the Phantom Stranger?

    • November 3, 2011 at 6:01 pmStyfles

      LOL THAT REMINDS ME OF THE NARUTO EPISODE WHERE NARUSASUSAKU WERE TRYING TO SEE KAKASHI’S FACE XDD

  • September 23, 2011 at 12:46 amMrRei

    She was arrested for a crime and was sentenced to make a music single with a PV. To protect her privacy, she was to hide her face for the duration of the sentence. :p

    • September 23, 2011 at 9:11 amZaku Fan

      That’s terrible. It obvious the entire pv is actually a philosphical statement on the state of anime censoring today with the scarf representing the white “light of purity” on japanese tv.

      Well either that or they want to build up the mystery like how the GirlDemo singers did. Or she’s really actually a middle schooler like Claris (LOL!)

  • September 23, 2011 at 5:07 amdisgradius

    Or… it could be that its snowing in that vid and she’s just covering up with a scarf cuz its cold?

    • September 23, 2011 at 9:56 amdrcnch

      Except that even in shots where she isn’t pulling the scarf over her face she is still being obstructed by something (reference 1:09 in the video).

      @Zaku Fan: You are probably right with your second statement, it’s all about hyping her up, but I personally love your first one. Take a stand against censorship! Wear a white scarf!

      • September 23, 2011 at 3:57 pmdisgradius

        Does sarcasm not translate well over the internet?

      • September 23, 2011 at 11:10 pmHrmmm

        /sarcasm

        …for all those interweb noobs ;D

  • September 23, 2011 at 10:02 pmshen

    There is a full version of the PV on youtube if you search for it and yeah its weird they hide her face the entire time :P but meh whatever I like the song regardless :).

    • September 24, 2011 at 4:18 pmDivine

      Thanks for the heads-up. I’ve updated the post with the full version of the PV.

      • September 27, 2011 at 2:29 amshen

        I should thank you as well because I didn’t even know there was a clip of the PV. That was the reason I even bothered to search for it on youtube :). I’ve been reading this site for.. I kinda forget how long maybe 3-4 years and its still a great site I look forward to more great things to come.

  • September 23, 2011 at 10:10 pmCorn

    disgradius: LOL I’m sorry but when I first saw your comment I didn’t think it was sarcasm until you pointed it out XD

    Beautiful song by the way :) Can’t wait for it to air

  • September 23, 2011 at 11:11 pmanon

    the face hiding is likely a marketing strategy. it stirs up curiosity among people and increase the potential that they’ll search about her info. just to increase attention..?

  • September 24, 2011 at 5:04 amFeedert

    Is it only because I just heard too many Himeka’s songs? I found her voice is very ordinary.

  • September 30, 2011 at 4:48 amMooMoo

    Who are the characters on the background of the site? Two girls in some kind of suits and the guys in uniforms? K thanks

  • November 27, 2011 at 11:55 amVivian Wang

    Do you know where you can download the mp3 version of the song? Because I love it, but I only have Blue Avalon, which keeps on repeatedly being mistaken as Memoria (I really hate that).
