Fukumenkei Noise – 01

「ぼくたちは、ほんとのこころを、かくしてる」 (Bokutachi wa, Honto no Kokoro o, Kakushiteru)
“We’re Hiding How We Truly Feel”

Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records – 02

「ほんのわずかなやる気」 (Hon’no wazukana yaruki)

GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation – 02

Hinako Note – 01

「とくぎは、かかしです」 (Tokugi wa, Kakashi desu)

Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul – 01

Tsuki ga Kirei – 01

「春と修羅」 (Haru to Shura)
“Spring and Hard Times”

‘Tsuki ga Kirei’ as well as meaning ‘The Moon is Beautiful’ is also a figurative way of saying ‘I love you’.

「ギア・オブ・デスティニー / 運命の歯車」 (Gia • Obu • Desutinii / Unmei no Haguruma)
