The youth sci-fi comic “orange” has sold more than 4 million copies and its film adaptation has marked 3.2 billion yen.
The male cast members have recently been announced and fans are looking forward to its outcome wondering what kind of voice the characters (experienced ones and new stars) will co-cast in this production: Kana Hanazawa, Seiichiro Yamashita, Makoto Fusukawa, Natsumi Takamori, Rika Kinugawa, and Kazuyuki Okitsu.
The 2nd character setting when they are 26 years old, which is the other time axis, has been revealed!
Please check on grown-up Naho who writes the letter to save Kakeru and her friends!
Also, a report from the recording site of incidental music composed by Hiroaki Tsutsumi has arrived!
In animation, the audience enjoys not only the images but also the incidental music which adds colors to the story.
In this TV anime “orange”, a part of the music was recorded synchronous with a band.
It is common to record respective instruments or vocal according to the music score that is already completed. However, the music for this anime will be recorded provided only with codes, sizes and tempo which is called “Lead sheet”.
Each instrument: guitar, bass, drum, piano, violin and two vocals, will produce sound and voice at their own timing and gradually fix the accent and atmosphere, and bring it to completion.
This unconventional way actually derives unique ideas!
In addition, a recording scene of stringed instruments is here which brings out the power of the music.
Toward the broadcasting, the music pieces that contain strength to face forward in spite of the sore setting is now being produced!
Hope you look forward to the harmony created by the story depicted in a beautiful sight of Matsumoto and the music composed by Tsutsumi!
