A number of songs with anime connections made the Oricon top 20 for the past week.
"Shiver," the GazettE's OP for Kuroshitsuji II, claimed #2.
"Shuuketsu no Unmei," by long-time seiyuu/singer Hayashibara Megumi, was #6.
Seiyuu/singer Chihara Minori came in at #9 with her new single, "Freedom Dreamer," the ending theme for anime TV show Anison Plus.
The OP to Sekirei: Pure Engagement was #13, sung by seiyuus Hayami Saori, Inoue Marina, Hanazawa Kana, and Endou Aya.
The song I liked best this week, Takagaki Ayahi's "Kimi ga Iru Bashou," was #13.
Of course, leading the pack were Akihabara favorites AKB48, whose seven-member sub-unit "Team Dragon" took #1 with the forgettable "Kokoro no Hane." There's no accounting for taste. Or maybe there is.
