Heartwarming & Heartbreaking “This Love” by Angela Aki

Day 14:  A Song You Like Hearing Live

This Love by Angela Aki (アンジェラ・アキ) is the 3rd ending theme song of one of my favourite anime series Blood+.  It’s one of my favourite songs and I always listen to it whenever I’m in an emo mode.  Angela Aki is one of those rare singers who sounds great even when singing live.  That’s why I like listening to her sing live, especially whenever she sings one of my favourite song of hers, This Love.

lsn’t this song beautiful?  Like Nee by Fujita Maiko, it’s both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.  What bittersweet songs!  I love listening to this kind of songs.

As for This Love being a theme song of Blood+, I personally don’t think that it fits the series as well as Aozora no Namida by Takahashi Hitomi.  I just think that This Love sounds too tame. . .or too sweet for something as intense a series as Blood+, if you know what I mean.

Nevertheless, This Love is one of my favourite songs and has been for many years now, since I first heard it while watching Blood+.  Now you know that This Love by Angela Aki is a song that I like hearing live.  What’s yours?

  1. Really nice song! As far as live songs go…Anime related I liked Yui doing “Again”

    But non-Anime related my favorite live song of late is “Everdream” by Nightwish with their new singer Floor Jansen.

    1. I know, right? It doesn’t hurt that Angela Aki has a beautiful voice as well. Oh my gosh. I often listen to “Again” by Yui, too. But my favourite song of her is “Goodbye Days”. Never fails to make me teary-eyed whenever I listen to it. First time I heard about “Everdream” by Nightwish. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
