When I was young, I played a lot with my two younger brothers. Sometimes wrestling. Sometimes hide-and-seek or tag. Other times with toys we got. One of them happens to be from a franchise which was popular in the country back then — beyblades.
We owned quite a lot as my younger brothers were not careful, a lot of them easily broke. And of course, we had to ask for replacements. It was fun.
We also watched the anime series Beyblade. There seems to be a lot, but the ones I got to watch are the original, V-Force, and G-Revolution. Out of the three, I remember liking G-Revolution the most. I actually remember 5 of its theme songs (2 OP and 3 ED), though I don’t really like one of its OP. (It’s the Go Ahead one.) Sign of Wish, Identified, Oh Yes!!, and this one, Kaze no Fuku Basho, are definitely nostalgic songs for me!
Kaze no Fuku Basho (lit. “place where the wind blows”) definitely gives ‘ending’ vibes for me (Sign of Wish has strong ‘ending’ feels for me, too!), so it being used for the ending of the last episode made me tear up. This song is sang by Makiyo for her album Garden released in 2004. It is about remembering the days spent with someone now long gone and longing for that someone to be by the person’s side.
Ahh, such a poignant message for a nostalgic song!
