The Bittersweet Joy & Pain of Falling in Love in “Nee” by Fujita Maiko

Day 4:  A Song That Reminds You of Something Sad

l think that songs that remind you of something sad are beautiful because they’re powerful enough to evoke intense emotions from your past.  One of these beautiful songs is Nee (ねぇ) by Fujita Maiko (藤田麻衣子).  It’s the opening theme song of the first season anime adaptation of Hiiro no Kakera (緋色の欠片).  It’s such a beautiful song that I wrote a previous post about it titled “Nee:  Bittersweet Love in Hiiro no Kakera.

Like what I wrote in  “Nee:  Bittersweet Love in Hiiro no Kakeraeverything about the song demonstrate the bittersweet joy and pain of falling in love.  I’m not going to tell you what sad memory this song reminds me of, but I can tell you that despite reminding me of something sad, I still love listening to it because it’s just so beautiful.

The lyrics are beautiful; it’s a love letter, but what I love the most is its instrumental melody.  I don’t own an instrumental version of Nee, but I wish I do.  I also wish that I didn’t give up on those piano lessons long ago, so that I can play this beautiful song whenever I’m feeling melancholic.  The melody just have this incredible ability to tug on your heartstrings.

Now you know that Nee (ねぇ) by Fujita Maiko (藤田麻衣子) is one of the songs that reminds me of something sad.  What’s yours?

      1. I actually loved it. It was different from the other otome game based anime I saw because we actually have a heroine with one guy in mind. I never played the game though so Idk how that is.

      2. Me, too. I’m not that ecstatic about the plot, but I appreciate that the main pair decided that they only have eyes for each other pretty early on, just like you said. Plus what I really like is that the attraction was gradual, and not those boy meets girl and then BAM, they’re hopelessly crazy in love with each other.

      3. Yeah, it is a progression into love which I enjoyed. Also, I agree that the plot wasn’t great because I felt it went a little too slow.


      4. I know, right? I often like those attracted at first sight series because they’re more intense, but because it seems many romance do it, it becomes too ordinary. So it’s nice to watch something slower; it makes the romance more precious. As for the story, it wasn’t about the pace for me. It just felt like something I watched before.
