I think I found myself growing to like Hoshi no Fune. I guess my expectations went off the charts when I heard that there was going to be another Orito x Lia song, but it kinda didn’t reach it (thanks Tori no Uta). The verses still feel like it doesn’t transition well to the chorus, but it’s admittedly a very beautiful song all throughout. I find the incorporation of a synth lead to what is mostly an organic(right word?) track quite an interesting touch. It gives the song a more futuristic feel that works with Planetarian. Lia’s voice is beautiful as always.
I quite like the Gentle Jena song, but I can’t help but feel that Ayaka doesn’t suit the song well. She sounds better in low-ranged songs imo.
Word of Dawn is gorgeous. I initially found the post-chorus synth voice idk something like that to be a bit strange, but I grew to like it. Meanwhile, violins is always a good thing. Its B-side track, Okiraku Kyuusai should definitely be Creamy Kagarin OVA OP. :3
End of the World was not as impressive, and the high-pitched synth drones, that entered by the second verse, didn’t quite help in improving the track. It’s not a bad song though. Meanwhile, I also agree with Totoro on the sentiments that Kumaki suited the B-side Hetakuso no Uta better. Needless to say, that track is very beautiful.
