Masumi Ito’s Yume no Naka no Watashi no Yume Release Wraps Up First Week of August’s Anime Music

Those who have seen Summer 2012’s anime offering of Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita will undoubtedly have come across an ending theme that’s set to a blurry, shadowy, dreamlike state.  That song, “Yume no Naka no Watashi no Yume,” has a haunting quality to it delivered through vocalist Masumi Ito.  Longtime anime fans might find her delivery to be similar to the vocals in Azumanga Daioh’s “Raspberry Heaven,” which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise given that Masumi Ito made up a part of the Oranges and Lemons group that performed “Raspberry Heaven.”

In addition to singing this ending theme, Masumi Ito has done a lot of compositions over the years for anime like the Bungaku Shoujo movie and the Chrono Crusade anime under the composer name of Hikaru Nanase.

The release of “Yume no Naka no Watashi no Yume” will be the only Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita music that’ll be out for awhile and it’s set to be released on August 4, 2012 (not too long after the mega-release last Wednesday which included Nana Mizuki’s “Bright Stream”).  The opening theme, “Real world” by nano.RIPE was released just last week and the soundtrack won’t be out for awhile longer.  If you’re looking to get the ending theme single, you can do so through CDJapan.  Those who want to take a peek at the ending sequence for the anime can do so below: [Read more…]

Bakemonogatari Full Soundtrack To Be Released in December

For a lot of us, Bakemonogatari was an anime that was high on the charm and presented with it a lot of excellent music. If you are like us in any way, songs like “Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari,” “Staple Stable,” and “Renai Circulation” will live long in our consciousness. The same can be said for Satoru Kousaki’s Bakemonogatari soundtrack, which features his usual atmospheric tones along with minimalistic piano melodies. The problem? None of them have been compiled on a CD… until now.

Finally, Aniplex has gotten their act together and have made a belated release of Bakemonogatari’s soundtrack compiled alongside the opening and ending themes we love so much. The entire package is spread across two discs and will be released on December 21, 2011. Those of you interested in ordering the soundtrack can do so through CDJapan or Play-Asia.

Kara no Kyokai Original Soundtrack Secures Release Date

When the Kara no Kyokai DVDs and Blu-Rays were released, most of them came equipped with soundtrack discs from each of the movies. But because of that release, a standalone soundtrack release seemed to be out of the picture… until now!

On March 2, 2011, Yuki Kajiura’s score for the Kara no Kyoukai movies will be bundled in a 2-disc soundtrack package featuring the music from all of the movies. Though no tracklist has been laid out, what is probable is that none of the Kalafina ending songs are likely to be making an appearance. Those who want to pre-order the soundtrack can do so through CDJapan.
