Maon, you really surprised me with this song. I wasn’t expecting something electro for your new song. The first part with Maon under filter wasn’t good but quickly it changes to be more amazing, the sound continues the same but it doesn’t affect the song, because the song is THAT good. I mean the song sounded so mysterious since the CM was released for this song and also when the OP was shown (even if I don’t see the anime) I liked the song. I think the only downside was the length, I think 1 minute less and it would’ve been ok, but still the ani-electro (Solarblade I take the genre word you used xD) from this song was so cool and really catchy, having some guitars mixes in several parts of the song was a good choice, a really good song.


This song continues the style of her incredible AMAZING album. Having a more noticeable anison style but having some guitar work that was epic so that was ok. This captured my attention faster than x-encounter, because the song retains the sound of her album, and she sounds so good, except in some lines where she tries more than she should with her voice, but that ‘s little compared with the whole song which was really epic. The guitars were the main star combined with Maon and I think this deserved to be an A-side as well, because of how good it is.

Is it worth listening? Oh god yes!

Yes. I am now oficially adding her to my review list.

After starting to hear Maon again, she really surprised the hell out of me. An almost perfect album and an incredible single as follow-up. This single had 2 incredible songs and as well they differ which was another good thing. X-encounter was amazing changing to this electro catching sound but keeping some anison style, and this one really captured my attention, I will still listen to this song for some time. But the main star for me was unchain., the song retained the style that I loved from her album and she nailed it again. So what else can I say? This really deserves to be listened, because I think this is her best single until now (Memories last was my favorite until this one).
