The ED is a Smile clone because of the animation, you know, somebody is walking and in the back/side there are flashbacks.

Just awful the new ED song... totally frustrating.... Can\'t comment about the OP, since I didn\'t watch.

The new ED is possibly the worst song to ever pound on my eardrums.

Both songs were disappointing. I hope they don't stay as long as Together did.

Am I the only one that thought the intro looked like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker with them in the boat, the seagulls, and the cell shaded animation?

I thought the OP was fine. :3

I didn\'t hear the ending though... ^^;;

Though Hikari I think could of sung a little better as I\'ve heard her sing for other animes before like Black Cat. It was so pretty. But I\'ll still buy the limited edition of this CD when it comes out though.

I think these will probably stay only a few months, since they seem kinda filler.

I don\'t see the big problem with them really. The OP\'s decent, and the ED is cute.

I really don\'t get why some people are saying the ED is a \"Smile\" clone since the only thing it has in common with it is slow singing.

Y\'know, like in 75% of all Anime Endings.

OP was just as good as Together imo, in other words really good and catchy. I just love the shots of J and Ginga-dan.

The ED was...dreadful. Seriously, both the song and the animation sucked.

And it was about Piplup, the most wh0red out Pokemon ever, just because they want people to buy its plushie. Annoying.

Alright, I\'ll never watch that ending again. That\'s how bad it is.

I think they are fine... At least I like the opening.
The ending is, like it was already mentioned a few times, kind of similar to \"Smile!\".
I think we all just got used to more \"action-like\" EDs since Haruka\'s Theme.
