Shirobako Movie

Apparently it’s a thing. I didn’t even know about it (or forgotten about it) until a friend said they watched it. To the movie theater I went (> ‘.’)>

It has been so long since the anime aired and I pretty much forgot almost everything about it. Although I think it took me until about the end of the movie when I stop confusing who’s who. It doesn’t help there are loads of casts involved. And they added some new ones.

It’s, well, Shirobako. I think. It’s anime production. With ups and downs. With license and contract problems. It’s pretty good overall and kind of moving in some places. Nothing extraordinary like Hello World though.

Oh yeah, Hello World is great. Wait, wrong post.

Music CD – Weathering with You complete version

And lastly WWY complete version songs. Five tracks are included and they each extend the version used in the movie and included in the soundtracks.

My main interest, Grand Escape, sure felt a bit different with the extended version. It’s no longer slow buildup and end in high note in single run but instead with ups and downs and finally peaked at nearby the end with a bit more cooldown afterwards. The impact is reduced but still good regardless.

The rest are simple improvement over the soundtracks version.

Karaoke/instrumental version isn’t included though 😔

Music CD – Hello World OST

It’s a thing. Except full version of the one song I liked most is not included in here: Yesterday (by Official Hige Dandism) is only in movie version. Whoops.

Oh well that means another 3k expenditure because the song is only available in their latest album.

I didn’t use to buy soundtrack CDs (except Tenmon and Shinkai-related) but the last few movies I just felt like I need to buy them as well.

That reminded me I should check when the blu-ray of this (and the following two CDs) will be released.
