According to Anime News Network, angry fans of the anime series ‘Air’ are complaining that the opening theme song of the series, ‘Tori no Uta’ is extremely similar to a track on a Cd released earlier this month by SONY BMG Music Entertainment. The Cd which is titled ‘The Best of Shaun Yu’ features a piano-only music called "Melody" which is the 14th track on the Cd. Melody is listed as an original piece composed by Yu.
Fans of Air have said that Melody is virtually identical to Tori no Uta and have accused Yu of plagiarism.
Tori no Uta was composed by Key, The issue has been brought up on the forum on Key’s Official website however there was no response or statement yet left by Key.
