Tantalizing, mesmerizing and expressive is the rich depth of Joe Hisaishi’s melodies as he accompanies the creative stories featured in anime. Each masterfully crafted song has a special meaning that encapsulates the very quintessential spirit of the characters. Mastermind Hayao Miyazaki – whose brilliant anime film career spans an impressive half-century – has sprinkled the perfect balance of music carefully chosen for each scene, bringing anime to life as more than just a mere cartoon.
Each song is a hallmark of the unity between movies and music. A dazzling combination of compelling storytelling about humanity, love and traditional good vs. evil; along with luminescent music composition. The very source of its creation, relation and remembrance by a vast audience has contributed to the growing popularity of anime enthusiasts; both young and those young at heart. It is perhaps the fundamental magnificence of harmony and magic that leaves a lasting impression and a song on your lips long after the movie ends.
