No webcomic this week because Blogger was down yesterday. To make up, here's an absolutely gorgeous song.

Title: secret base 〜君がくれたもの, secret base ~kimi ga kureta mono, secret base ~the gift
Artist: ZONE
Genre: Pop, Rock
Single: secret base 〜君がくれたもの
Album: Z
Vintage: 08/08/01 ddmmyy

Kenn's Comment: Sound familiar? Secret base (cover version) was used as the ending for 今日の5の2 and more recently, あの花 (which if you haven't seen my review on it, click the title, or here to jump to it). Why? It's ZONE's most famous song, and with good reason. It's gorgeous. The lyrics are sentimental and are oh so fitting for AnoHana. I lurve this song to death. I'd play this at my funeral *knocks on wood*. 

Another reason I put this one up is because I've seen a couple comments you YouTube asking why series are 'reusing songs from older anime'. The answer is simple. Some of those songs in older anime were by bands, and not specifically for the anime. Meaning, with a lengthy copyright form, you too could feature a song like this in a video if you really wished. Plus other bands (Scandal for example) have covered the song as well. Please don't assume that the song is Scandal's. Seriously. Please. With a maraschino cherry on top.
