30-Day Song Challenge Day 18: A Song You Have As Your Ringtone/Want To Be Your Ringtone

So does this mean my ringtone when I call someone, or is this the song that plays when someone calls me? Meh, I’ll give one of each, sound good?

*dials my number, waits* Beeeeep, beeeeep”

*over where I’m at* “so, everything that makes me whole ima kimi ni sasageyou. I’m Yooours ~~~”

Yep, you guessed it. Guilty Crown!!! But the instrumental only!

From Guilty Crown, “My Dearest” by supercell

Alright, this is the typical song that cues when someone for whatever reason is calling me. I absolutely love the piano intro for this song, and it’s supercell, so duh, you can’t go wrong! It doesn’t blare out and scare the sh*t outta me when I’m in public and my phone rings, but it will grow louder if I don’t notice it within the first ten seconds. Also, I wouldn’t sound like some obvious die-hard anime nerd if this song slid out of my phone speakers in my opinion, so that’s always a huge plus (not that there’s anything wrong with being a fan, but like anything for me, expression is great, though the whole supermarket doesn’t need to hear my J-pop/rock preferences). All in all, it’s a pretty solid ringtone, and a fantastic song (so someone call me so I have an excuse to listen to it, please :>)

Ooh, now finding a ringtone for myself took hours of pondering, but I’ve finally settled on . . .

Kiki’s Delivery Service or The Secret World of Arrietty Main Themes

I’d be flattered to receive either of these as ringtones people have set on their phones for me o>.<o While the first is laid back, you know, another day warm in the local bakery, the second is adventurous and invigorating, like forest travels – but both have this same aura of home and finding a place where you belong. I think the two Ghibli movies convey these themes, too! It’s obvious that they would make nice ringtones: no annoying vocals, no absurd electric guitars, no fluffy or spunk J-pop – Both just feel natural and free, impressive yet humble, and I think if I heard either of these great songs, I’d think a bit of myself, hehe. Check out both of these movies, as you’d be doing yourself a massive favor 😀

And with that, I conclude day 18. This was a harder day to crack down on, that’s for sure, but I hope you like what I picked! I’m curious, do you have a preferred song that you would like to hear coming from another’s phone? Also, would it be anime-related music, or would you feel a bit “ashamed and embarrassed” to admit it? Let me know in the whatchamajig below. Happy Monday, till tomorrow!

  2. That’s one of my favorite tracks from Arrietty! Such gorgeous music! Kiki’s soundtrack is amazing too–I would listen to the song instead of answering the phone and your call would be ignored LOL XD

  3. Instrumental anime pieces are the best as ringtones because you can enjoy and showcase your love for anime without it being too obvious – like a subtle geek xD

    Unfortunately my phone’s on silent most of the time :p

  4. I love supercell, too.

    I’ve used anime songs as my ringtones and notification icons. “La Soldier” and “Dekiai Temptation” are two ringtones I can think of. BoA’s “Scream” is usually on my phone for Halloween.

    • Awesome, yeah, they’re pretty amazing. And I’ve never heard of those two songs before haha, so I’ll go give them a listen just so we’re on the same footing.
      And interesting, so you do it too, ay? It’s reassuring to hear it from another fellow anime fan!

      • “La Soldier” is from Sailor Moon (insert song & theme of the musicals) and is a mysterious battle piece. “Dekiai Temptation” is from Uta no Prince-sama just features the awesome Morikubo as my fave Reiji.

        I would think it was awesome if I heard someone else have an anisong as a ringtone. 🙂

      • I listened to the Sailor Moon song. It sounds familiar for some reason, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the episodes it said it was in :/ Good music, though!
        And YES, I would freak if I was just loafing around a store or in public and I heard some anime jams blaring out! I’d probably attack them I’d be so excited #hopefullynot 🙂

  5. I’m not a fan of having any of my music bring heard by others so embarrassment of my music in general @__@ but then again my phone’s on silent/vibrate most of the time (though there have been times when it’s on loud and I’ll be in class, wow that’s so embarrassing)
