Stargazing: Yake Ochinai Tsubasa - Tada Aoi

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! We've finally made it, although it just seemed to blaze by this year without warning. December and winter as a whole could not have felt shorter this year, but as I haven't caught the seasonal cold yet, I wouldn't mind it shifting over to warmer temperatures before I DO get sick somehow.

Let's talk Charlotte. While I won't go into great detail about what I personally thought about the series as a whole, nobody can deny that its astrological visuals brought forth by P.A. Works were just stunning to look at. With great animation sequences to open and close the series, they also followed the traditional KEY approach to the presentation and even brought in both Lia and Tada Aoi for vocal performances, just like Angel Beats! did.

'Yake Ochinai Tsubasa' loosely translates to "wings that can't burn", and provides an imaginative melody as silver-haired, blue-eyed Tomori Nao basks in the starlight. As the more heavy portions of the show started presenting itself to its audience, I can genuinely say that some weeks left me excited in wait for what was to come next. Enjoy this song tonight, and we'll see you tomorrow for my favourite holiday of the year!
