Piano Cover: We Are One (Vividred Operation)

First post of 2013! :) I like to put together a new piano cover for each season of airing anime, but honestly, I had trouble finding a show that really speaks to me this fine Winter 2013. A few carryovers from last season (namely, Psycho-Pass and Shinsekai Yori) are still going strong, but I've been somewhat unimpressed with the shows I've seen this season. Nevertheless, there's still plenty of great music in the shows this time around, and I decided to pick a song from the new sci-fi/action show, Vividred Operation.

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to find a VO image that did not involve butts.

I actually haven't watched to much of Vividred Operation; I did check out the first episode or two, but the fanservice (mostly in the form of constant butt-shots) was a little off-putting for me. Still, I really liked the ED that played at the end of episode 2, "We Are One." The song has a somewhat typical feel to it, but spices things up with some neat harmonies and uses of applied chords here and there. And you know how I feel about applied chords. XD Here's my cover!
