Stargazing: Paradigm - eufonius

Thanks to its abrupt end on its thirteenth episode, Kokoro Connect has seen some mixed reviews, and while I agree with the fact that it just stopped dead there, people seem to be missing the point that another four episodes will be connected to it later on.

Today's song is Kokoro Connect's first opening theme 'Paradigm', which was supposedly pulled only because of a scandal surrounding the series. It's unfortunate because this track is simply beautiful, and I absolutely adored it. Featuring the wonderful sound of eufonius, a medley of string instruments and light percussion really gives this one a charming feel. My favourite contributor to this track however is the floaty synth that seems to drift about, much like falling snow.
