If you're referring to the opening credits theme then yes for about 2/3 of the series it changed periodically to sometimes reflect upon the main character or feel of the episode. However it still was the same theme (just played differently to give it a different feel). For the end 1/3 it was changed to a song sung by the guy who sung the closing credits.

Yeah, depending on who the main character of the episode is, the song will have a more accented part played by that Oni's respective instrument. If it's a Hibiki-centered episode, there'll be heavy drums, if it's an Ibuki episode, you'll hear some trumpet solos, and Zanki and Todoroki get guitar riffs.

You forgot about the female vocals. I'm not sure just who she sings for, but it's a nice change. (I half think it's just for spice, and no one in particular.)

You're right, I knew I was missing something. Thanks for that.

and the flute! Don't forget the flute!

I really wish there was a version of 'Kagayaki' with all the instruments mixed together. Hell I even love the xylophone version they use as background music during the 'serious talk' segments between Hibiki and Asumu.
