My Choice of Music in 2010

Inspired by my buddy’s post, I’ll do it in my own way.

In random order, my choice of music in 2010 are:




2010 was a great year for Kalafina. Red Moon album marked their second era, which means more public appearances compared to Seventh Heaven era. While my play for Red Moon is still isn’t as much as Seventh Heaven, it’s already catching up. Moreover, there’s Kagayaku sora no shijimaniwa. The simplicity of the song was what made me loving it. Nevertheless, 2010 is Kalafina’s year to me.

Highlight: Red Moon || テトテトメトメ || sapphire || 輝く空の静寂には || 闇の唄


Mami Kawada

Mami Kawada

Yes, I gotta admit that my love for her is declining. Her LINKAGE album was rather half-baked. Good thing that No buts! sorta made up for that. A very fast pace and intense song, which single managed to be on Oricon Weekly Chart #6 during its first week. Of course, I still have a large bias toward her if you ask.

Highlight: linkage || CLIMAX || No buts!


Maon Kurosaki

HOTD歌姫, should I say?? A decent debut, compiled with a decent stage performance, too. I have not much to say about her, aside from the fact that she’s a polished singer. Ah, and she is a proud ヲタク, which I like lol.

Highlight: Hollow Men || Magic∞world || Return to Destiny || 君と太陽が死んだ日 || The Eternal Song


Haruka Tomatsu

Haruka Tomatsu

What? Any complain? Well, I can’t say I like miss Tomato from her voice, for sure. My first introduction to her was Musuhi no Toki, which I checked out for Wakana’s appearance there lol. I immediately liked the song for the calmness. When I listened to her other songs, however, I was… jawdropped. A normal pop songs popped up everywhere. Not that I dislike them, though. 8D

Highlight: Girls, Be Ambitious. || 渚のSHOOTING STAR || 星のステージ
(I feel like cheating by inserting 産巣日の時 but that’s 2009 release lol)


Hokago tea time - NO, Thank You!

Hokago Tea Time

Best selling fictional band ever. What more could I say?? The catchy songs which managed to rose K-ON! girls into fame. Creating a path for Yoko Hikasa if she’s going to be a singer in the future yeah. I want to hear more from Hiyocchi, she deserves it.

Highlight: No, Thank You! || Utauyo!!MIRACLE || ぴゅあぴゅあはーと || ごはんはおかず




Not much release, actually, with Kaori having to finish her graduation thesis (which she had finished by now and only waiting for graduation on February). Toki no Mukou Maboroshi no Sora single and FictionJunction Live Best were their only releases for 2010. Live Best, however, has become one of my favorite album of the year. Too bad they just didn’t release Live vol.#5 and/or vol.#6 on DVD, huh.

Highlight: 時の向こう 幻の空 || MATERIALISE (Live) || the image theme of Xenosaga II (Live)




The most popular seiyuu idol unit these days? Not that I listen to them regularly, but yeah, their songs are catchy.

Highlight: MOON SIGNAL || REALOVE:REALIFE || Now loading… SKY!!




After a hell long hiatus, MELL came back with yet another impressive album, MIRAGE. No words to say, other than IMPRESSIVE.

Highlight: Teleportation Guy || FIXER || mirage


Some others that didn’t make it into this list: 水樹奈々, 榊原ゆい, 梶浦由記, 飛蘭, 妖精帝國

    It’s too bad that you’re love for Mami Kawada has declined or is still declining. 😦
    But for me, though, her Linkage album is the best and so is No Buts!
    Her Linkage Tour 2010 is also a must see. I hope you can still post a review or pictures at least, of the concert once it comes out on DVD.

    First of all, thanks for your visit!! 😀

    Yes, I’ve been thinking why they haven’t announced, or at least, planned LINKAGE Live DVD until now. Been asking Mami few times but didn’t get replied either… “OTL
    Can’t promise about the review, though. I have been writing Kalafina Live Red Moon DVD since last month and still hasn’t finished it XDD;; *is shot*
