1. Anata to (あなたと)
2. Anata to (Instrumental)

This is ayaka and Kobukuro’s 2nd collaboration single and it was released on September 24, 2008. The single reached #2 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 147,083 copies.

ayaka and Kobukuro are back with another collaboration single and this time they have really outdone themselves. I thought their first collaboration WINDING ROAD was good but Anata to wipes the floor with it. Instead of an upbeat song, the trio perform a ballad. A gorgeous and extremely heartwarming ballad I might add. The music is pretty as expected but what I find so beautiful about this song are the vocals. The verses feature great solo sections from each person but their harmonizations during the chorus are perfect. The same goes for the bridge and I was glad that there was no over the top adlibbing like in WINDING ROAD either. So…best collaboration of the year? You bet!

  1. I love Anato to & at 1st I thought it will sound like a WINDING ROAD part 2 but it took me by surprise when I found out that it’s a ballad & yes it’s 1 of my fave collaboration I come across this year as well <3

  2. I absolutely loved this song from my first listen.

    great review!
