Orihime's Life Theme Song  

It's a real song! samuraiblues mentioned Kanjani8 in a comment yesterday and kawaiis  found the song on YouTube. It's so cute and Orihime and reminds me of Don Kanonji's BOHAHAHAHAHAHA:

(eta: the song was removed on YouTube but I found it here

rutube.ru/tracks/3829586.html )

I'm fixated with the Kubo's poetry as always. The title of the last chapter was "A Day without Melodies" and with that retro-Bleach chapter cover, I'm reminded of the Ichigo who used to have a guitar in his room (it's not there now--the wall posters are gone too) and was often pictured wearing headphones. Orihime has a theme song for her life but she tells her friends (with some concern) that she's only "humming" it now. Tatsuki speculates that this is because Orihime's grown up, so what's going on here? Is the music changing?

It's like old style Bleach, but it's not the same old song.

Ohhhhh, good find; and such a lively song.

And yeah, there are a few nice parallels in that chapter. Before the splash page comes up, there is this 'how did it go again? as soon as i mentioned it i forgot it.' It's like charas have 'matured' due to circumstances and stuff but not in the way they actually wanted to and while they trying to remember the way it was supposed to be, they just can't do it yet.

or something. |D

YES! Like not remembering a dream or all the words to a song--something's missing.

Rukia stands for what's missing in a way--she represents Soul Society, Ichigo's Shinigami powers, the whole impetus for for the first adventure and the person who was by Ichigo's side in that redone spread. I wonder if Kubo put the characters all facing away from Ichigo in that spread because he wanted to reveal their new faces one by one (Orihime and Ishida got some mighty nice reveals this past chapter of their new FINE looks) or if he wanted to suggest something omincous... or both.

Yeah, something along those lines. And the whole 'WAKE UP ICHIGO!!1' that goes in the beginning, is actually more than just the pre-wake up phase. Something shitty is gonna happen soon.

And of course, Rukia is a crucial part of Ichigo's life from all kind of aspects; two sides of the same coin you might say.

And that reminds me of one of my favourite songs by Regina Spektor, Eet :(

It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song
You can't believe it
You were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember
You try to feel the beat...

Lol, cute! Definately seems like a song Inoue would latch on to.

Ahhhh, it's probably gonna be short lived, but I have missed Cracky!Inoue so! ^-^

ah, I like to think that Cracky!Inoue is always going to be with us--it seems like an integral part of who she really is. I remember before the HM arc thinking wow, they're really going to do this--take this mostly sweet comic character to a really dark dark place like Hueco Mundo.

Can't believe she was there so long--years for us but it was only days for her. Crucial days--and apparently Ichigo is still reeling--so I wonder when we'll see more of how the whole time affected her and how.

Ahaha! I also thought of KANJANI8 when Orihime mentioned the song. If this song gets ninja'd in the anime, I think I'd have a great laugh. Gotta love it when fandoms collide. 8D♥

Also, still laughing about Orihime's number 3 eyes. XD

Well if Gintama had Perfume's "Polyrhythm" all over in an episode,it wouldn't surprise me if Pierrot does the same with this one xDD I would laugh as well xD

Am I the only one who read "a day without rain (by Enya)" instead of "a day without melodies"?

Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows?
Only time...

The lyrics really sing Ichigo to me.

Orihime's theme song is so cute and hopeful, what a perfect choice. <3

I found the vid thanks to JinxJen posting the lyrics ( http://www.justsomelyrics.com/1831964/Kanjani8-Wahaha-Lyrics )in the UlquiHime FC at BleachAsylum. :3

Waaaah. So Hime:

Even you smile forcibly
Even they say `it is meaningless` and laugh at you

If you laugh about that too
Then they would start running and gone

`Let's stay alive` The sound beating in my heart
Hope they are not sadness or hatred
Hope it is happy pulse

Amazing song, I loved the lyrics to pieces, it's such like a battle song in Orihime's style and saying this I'm referring to my "battle songs", music is a need for me, to keep moving or get a better humor quen I'm down. When I need to work hard I love metal songs, so full of warrior vibes for me.

As the song of her life, she has done a great choice, the lyrics are beautiful and so full of hope.

Orihime, I love you! <3 :'D

//Tatsuki speculates that this is because Orihime's grown up, so what's going on here? Is the music changing?//

The growing up (for everyone) has to happen sooner or later, but something feels quite incomplete. It's like Ichigo, Orihime and co are being forced into this maturity while it is not what they truly want, nor is it a natural progression into the "real world". I think there's still a long way to go.

I'm also a fan of Kanjani8, so I couldn't help but think it was their song that Orihime was humming to. The lyrics fit her perfectly.
And it's funny because the song came out around the time I was 17 also and I thought I could relate to the lyrics as well xD Not quite necessarily close to Orihime though of course ;P

It's like old style Bleach, but it's not the same old song.

I definitely agree with this! It's like Ichigo's trying to think of the days to come, but at the same time, trying hard to let go of his Shinigami days. He's living what he depicts as a normal life, but he's discontent.

I also agree with strawberries_85's comment.
While we still have this cutesy Orihime, but there's this "aura" about her that she's more grown up.

Does it exist for real? I've never heard it before...
Perfect choice, Ku-... ehrm, Orihime <3 So cute!

So true. Kubo says he's heavily influeced by music,but THIS. OMG they are too happy for words.
Perfect for Orihime. Even though it's probably supposed to be melancholic that she can't remember the lyrics, at least she seems to be somewhat happier than before.

*flails around in it*

I love it when my fandoms collide, and I'm glad to see I wan't the only one who immediately thought of EIto when I read that part. XD
