Music Monday: Toradora ED2 – Orange

Hi everyone! Here’s another entry of Music Monday! This time, I’m featuring one of my favorite anime themes: Orange from Toradora!

Orange is the second ending theme of Toradora!, sung by the seiyuus of Aisaka Taiga (Kugiyama Rie), Kawashima Ami (Kitamura Eri) and Kushieda Minori (Horie Yui). The tone has a bubbly feel to it, but when you learn the meaning of the lyrics, it has more meaning to it. Since the song was especially made for the anime, it is expected that it would relate to the anime greatly. The song uses the metaphor of an Orange being unripe and a person who has yet to mature — which directly relates to the three leading girls of Toradora! This blog entry has the English translation by Words of Songs and CoalGuys, and gives a good explanation of the metaphors and how it relates to the series.

Below is the animation of Orange in Toradora!

You can download the single from this torrent, to be able to listen to the complete version of the song.

    Great pick!

    But i think the remixed version:

    オレンジ-citrus mix- From とらドラ! キャラクターソングアルバム is nicer!

    There’s something just kind of nice and relaxing about this particular song that fits well with the show. I can’t really place my finger on why I like it, but it’s short and sweet which works in this instance.
