Nee: Bittersweet Love in Hiiro no Kakera

hiiro no kakeraNee (ねぇ) by Fujita Maiko (藤田麻衣子) is the opening theme song of the first-season anime adaptation of Hiiro no Kakera (緋色の欠片).  Just before the first episode premiered, some of the seiyuu of the show revealed that Nee was deliberately created for the anime.

I didn’t like the anime very much (except for the hot guys who I enjoyed eyeing), but I love this song.  I think it’s very beautiful and sad at the same time.  The entire song, including the melody and the lyrics, perfectly demonstrate the bittersweet joy and pain of falling in love.

I also think that Fujita-san’s voice is perfect for the song.  She has a very mellow, sweet, and even vulnerable voice that effectively mirrors what the song is about.  I love it!  The first time I heard it, it immediately stuck in my head.  I can listen to this song all day, and I do so often.

Below is the actual full-length music video of Fujita Maiko-san.  I don’t like it very much, but I applaud its simplicity.

  1. ngayon ko lang napanood yung full video, though narinig ko na nung nakaraan yung sa opening. Hehehe

    Makiki-comment lang sa official music video:

    Bagay sa boses nung singer yung song. I feel how sad it is on how she sang the song without reading the English translation.
    The music video is very simple. Gusto ko sya kaso parang nakukulangan lang ako. Well, I’m not expert ah. Nakiki-echoserang frog lang ako. Hahahaha

    My suggestions would be:

    Sana mas maraming flowers ang pinalibot doon sa singer. O kaya yung tipong sa mga petal sya nakaupo. Tapos sana medyo tumayo-tayo din sya (pag may time hahahaha) kahit sa may window lang na parang nakatingin sa kawalan.

    Yung sa scene nung artista, maganda rin sana kung parang flash back effects na related sa lyrics ng kanta. Yung mga times na magkasama sila ng taong mahal nya. Like reminiscing the old and happy but painful memories lalo na rin sa part na parang umiinom sya ng coffee or tea.

    Tapos nung nakaupo sya sa bench, maganda rin sana yung umulan habang patingala sya o kaya may snow effect din. Then, habang kumakanta yung singer at the same time pinagmamasdan nya yung girl.

    Basta yun. Hahahaha Mahirap i-explain. May masabi lang. 😀

    1. High-five! My thoughts exactly. But I think na tamang-tama lang ‘yong voice nong singer. Hindi siya pilit. Kasi I don’t think na kailangan ng birit in this kind of song.

      Kaya nga comment ko doon sa actual mv na hindi ko siya masyadong gusto kasi I think that it’s too simple. Gaya nga ng sabi mo, naka-upo lang siya doon at hindi man lang tumayo-tayo. Hahaha! She should’ve emoted more, ‘di ba? 😉

      Pero taking the music video aside, I really love the song. I listen to it, like, almost all the time. Especially when I’m in emote mode. Hahaha! It’s one of the most-played songs on my playlist. Oh well.

      Salamat for dropping by. Mas maraming magagandang songs na Japanese kaysa dito. Enjoy mo lang. Ingat!

      2. Hahaha! Siguro nga. Ewan ko. Maganda naman siya pero parang kulang, ‘di ba? Oh well.

        Ako rin eh. There’s this music blogger na laging nag-rerecommend sa akin ng mga foreign songs. ‘Yong iba, gusto ko. ‘Yong iba naman, hindi ko gusto. Depende rin sa personal tastes mo.

  2. I will take your advice. I’m glad that you have a board where you will consider hyper-thermia. It is an important men’s health issue, especially for those who have to work outside, or for older men … and … oh … ah … Oh God, NO …
