Animelo Summer Live 2009 -RE:BRIDGE- Theme Song Single – RE:BRIDGE -Return to oneself-

Here comes the theme song single of this year’s animelo (wiki animelo if you don’t know what it is). This year’s theme song is rather pop-y, but it sounds animelo-y alright. For some reason there doesn’t seem to be a PV for it this year, I wonder why.

Anyway, here’s the complete list of artists performing for 2009 animelo theme song single:

ALI PROJECT
Hirano Aya
Ayane
Ishikawa Chiaki
Yonekura Chihiro
ELISA
GRANRODEO
Momoi Halko
JAM Project
Ito Kanako
manzo
Okui Masami
May’n
Kuribayashi Minami
Chihara Minori
Mizuki Nana
PSYCHIC LOVER
savage genius
Suara
Ohmi Tomoe
Sakakibara Yui

Personally I look forward to Ayane and Yuinyan’s performances in the concerts this year. This is the first time they got invited (about time), hopefully they will pick some great songs.

12.Tenshi no Hane [Yuduki]

Personal picks are track 4 and 6.

New Background Music

Other than a certain someone who got lots of hints and accidentally found out the May BGM, I wonder how many of you have figured out. Anyway, so the hot summer has come. Don’t you feel like laying back, appreciate the beautiful summer scenery (if there’s any around you), and just be relaxed and lazy? If you do, then this month’s summer-feel-filled BGM is perfect for you. It’s very likely you have heard it before already, but I doubt you would mind listening to it again, and again. Cick “Background Music” on the right under the link section to listen to it now.
