I like Japanese anime and I shared some soundtracks here in my blog before. It has been quite a while since the last time I did this.

The last couple of soundtracks I shared were from Sword Art Online and Log Horizon. That was more than a year ago. Since then, I have watched Sword Art Online (Part 2) and Log Horizon (Part 2).

A few days ago, I decided to watch again an anime I watched a few years ago. It is a very heartwarming anime which I enjoyed but time has dulled my memory of the story. Well, watching it again and enjoying it as much as the first time I watched it shows what a wonderful piece of work it is.

In case you are interested, the name is "So Ra No Wo To" (The Sounds of the Skies). Even if you do not usually watch Japanese anime, I think you will enjoy the melodies of the following songs and find inspiration in the words of the second song:

Prendre le bien, le mal et sans trier, accepter.

I find the anime spiritually uplifting and it fills me with hope that the world could become a better place for all of us to live harmoniously together in future (which is what the anime is about, ultimately).

A reader who is quite an accomplished musician recently asked me if I played music? I said I tried but the interest didn't last very long. I was a bit like Sherlock Holmes trying to learn the violin.

He said I can listen to music, then. That, I can certainly do. He sent me this clip:

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.

AK, you might want to find some songs composed by Sawano Hiroyuki then.

Hi Howard,

Thank you for pointing me in that direction.

I will go exploring one day. :)

Hi jojo,

It was rather otherworldly as well, wasn't it? Enjoyed it.

I don't go to concerts. Not the most cultured person around. So, it was really nice to have a concert coming to me. ;p
