Opening of the Week: gravityWall by Hiroyuki Sawano(Re:Creators OP 1)
The Crunchyroll Anime Awards got me thinking about a lot of the shows that were held hostage by Anime Strike that I can now go and watch for a reasonable price. One of those was Re:Creators, a show that the AniTube community has been collective referring to as fun. So, maybe I’ll check it out at some point, but until then I’ll be enjoying the show’s amazing soundtrack, including the song we’ll be talking about today: gravityWall by Hiroyuki Sawano, with Tielle and Gemie.
gravityWall was created primarily by the Re:Creator’s Music Director Hiroyuki Sawano. Sawano has created soundtracks for other popular shows like Aldnoah.Zero and Attack on Titan, and has spawned somewhat of a meme in the anime community known as the “Sawano drop.” Listen to gravityWall and you will understand why.
The song is some of the best of what Electro-rock has to offer, with a powerful chorus shouting “I’m screaming something to you. Whatever, something to me.” It serves as a powerful anthem to a show that looks, based on what I’ve seen, to be entirely worth the watch.
I would comment on the opening visuals, but to be honest they are not that special. Mostly character cards and a few insert shots of random fights between different characters. Overall, absolutely worth a listen.
What do you guys think of this opening? Good? Bad? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading and bye for now, Friendos! Also, if you guys like what I’m putting out, consider supporting me on Patreon. Just a dollar would be fine. It would be much appreciated.
