Stargazing: Neguse - Suzaki Aya

We're at Day 14 with a sleepy song from Tamako Market. This little ending song had a strange contrasting atmosphere to the overall peppy nature of the series itself, but it took a focus to the classy music cafĂ© setting and gave it such a fluorescent ambiance, giving the ending an almost dream-like personality.

'Neguse'directly translates to "bedhead", the scruffy state in between waking up and the realization that your hair has seen better days. It's a great title that envelops that very state, and I think we're all in agreement that we have lazy days like this. Bedhead is unprofessional sure, but it's fun. Go ahead, plop on some big headphones and let it mess up your perfect hair, just for one day.
