Fukuhara Miho – LET IT OUT PV (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ED2)


Since there’s no new episode of FMA today, this seems like a good time to talk about the PV for the second ending song which started airing on M-ON! and SSTV earlier this week. You may remember that when I wrote about the PV for the second opening song Hologram, I mentioned that I’ve been listening to LET IT OUT a lot more recently, and that still remains true. While Hologram was a much catchier song at first, after repeated listens, I much prefer LET IT OUT. I found the lyrics really fitting for FMA in relation to Ed and Al, and I love Fukuhara Miho’s voice. Combined with her looks, which you can see in the video above, she reminds me a bit of Itou Yuna. The PV itself was actually pretty interesting as well because it didn’t just have her and a band performing the song, it also told the story of the solitary-looking guy who finally lets it all out at the end.

It’s an all-around good song, and I’m happy to have heard the full version and seen the PV now after having been teased by the commercial for it these past few weeks, especially since the CD for it isn’t due out until next month. Actually, now that I think about it, September 9th isn’t so far away anymore…

Loose Odds and Ends

  • As a reminder, there are no new episodes of Basquash or Fullmetal Alchemist this week because of the 12th IAAF World Championships in Athletics. A new episode of Bakemonogatari, however, will be airing later today.
  • Speaking of Basquash, I really like the full version of the current ending song and have been listening to the newly released single all week. In contrast, I still don’t like the current Haruhi opening song and laughed when I saw how ridiculous the PV of it was. It certainly doesn’t make me think any better of Hirano Aya.
  • As much as I wanted to blog it because it’s a good series, I really can’t find the time for Sora no Manimani. School recently started again, and my final year of grad school is going to be a doozy. I would still recommend the show though (Jaalin likes it even more than I do).
  • A few people have asked me about my thoughts for the upcoming fall season, and while I haven’t done any significant research on it, my first impression was that it’s even more full of sequels than usual. There’s something like nine or ten of them out of less than thirty new shows, and it’s a shame there aren’t more completely original series. Regardless, I suspect I’ll definitely be watching Darker than BLACK, InuYasha, Railgun, and Kimi ni Todoke.
