BAND-MAID has scheduled its single Sense for an October 27 release, in conjunction, it will serve as the opening theme song for the psychological and supernatural anime Platinum End. A highly anticipated anime whose original source material is based on the two forces behind the popular series Death Note: writer Tsugumi Ohba, and illustrator Takeshi Obata.

While the single isn’t released yet, the band has pre-released a “TV Size Ver.” (90-second version) of the song Sense through digital platforms. It was made available on September 5.

Although the “TV Size Ver.” is naturally short in length, it contains a lot of melodic layers to unpack.

Starting with a powerful orchestral crescendo of strings, percussion, and choir. As this operatic prelude peaks, BAND-MAID’s rhythm section powers up an epic hard rock ballad and lifts off with Saki’s voice belting out a mighty chorus.

Indeed, this tune should please both their fans and viewers when the anime series debuts in October. Perhaps past experience has shaped the composition as this is their third anime theme after Different, the opening theme for Log Horizon; and glory, the ending theme on Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.
