Stargazing: Sore wa Chisana Hikari no Yona - Sayuri

Electricity bills be damned, I've turned on my heater for the winter. It got to the point yesterday where my fingers and toes were practically icicles, and I started to feel a bit sick, like at the start of a cold. Luckily, I'm feeling a decent bit better today, and I hope I don't actually end up getting sick.

The gruelling 12 weeks of torture I suffered while watching Boku Dake ga Inai Machi symbolizes this icy chill well. Based around a mysterious murder and a second chance to prevent it from occurring, 'Erased' was a thrilling presentation. Its cliffhangers quickly became a shockingly reoccurring standard, and hearing today's emotional song just left us all breathless waiting to see what happened next. It should be noted that this single was released in multiple versions as well, with differing B-side tracks.
