Music of the Week #595

March rolls on by

Not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep this weekend. The winter season is also nearing completion and I vaguely recall looking at the spring anime line-up without finding too many things to watch.

While it’s not catchy as the two main themes that came before it, I think the titular theme for Super Paper Mario showcases its whimsical nature that fits its aesthetic beyond our recognizable characters. The artstyle for SPM isn’t something too many people find charming because so many of the NPCs look weird. Despite Thousand Year Door making some obvious paper mechanics, SPM kind of changes the aesthetic to be more like that to mixed effectiveness. It’s very “blocky”. I’m not necessarily saying the theme conveys blockiness somehow but it’s very reminiscent of Flipside, the game’s hub world.
