Yes, I know this is a long time coming. But while the series is long over, the music still lives. LOL Anyhoo, yeah, so this is the ending single for Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou, an anime about a boy, Natsume, who has always been able to see youkai. But ever since he inherits a book containing the names of youkai from his deceased grandmother, he finds himself the target of youkai as they demand their names back. Some youkai are friendly enough but others are vicious, but good or bad, friendly or not, Natsume sets out to return their names. Helping him is a talking cat who reluctantly becomes his bodyguard on the condition that he will own the book if Natsume dies.

The single is properly called Hibi no Uta, which I think means something like "lullabye," if I'm not mistaken. But the third track, Aishiteru (lit. "I Love You") serves as the ending theme to Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou. All songs in the single are acoustic, sang by a female vocalist. There's hardly any information about the artist so I know nothing about her or them. Anyway, this is a nice single. As befitting to the single title, all songs are gentle-sounding and the voice itself is soft and smooth. Just the sort of music you can chill to.
