The Journey to the West
Joe Hisaishi
The Journey to the West

Mingling the full sound of a western orchestra with snippets of the movie’s themes on traditional japanese instruments, The Journey to the West takes us out of Ashitaka’s homeland, seeking truth and the answer to his personal mystery. 

Republic City Blues

Chapters 43-46 by beech27.
Based on the flash-back of Kuvira and Asami in Zaofu.

“And so I set to walking, pacing the streets of Zaofu. I knew them and they knew me. We were acquainted, but not exactly friendly. But they took me where I wanted to go, and that was fine enough. Led me to the new noodle shop, and I thought that would be a good surprise, for her. She’d never known her parents - and I understood that - but still had a taste for those green noodles. I thought them a little strange at first, but grew to enjoy the taste of the sea, the salty briny bitterness all mixed up in a starchy bite.”

Mushishi no Theme

This track, the base theme from Mushishi’s first season, has inspired the last 1,000 words of Wolf of the West - and continuing on! So I thought I’d share, even though I’ve already posted today’s song of the day. 

This OST is absolutely gorgeous in its entirety, I recommend it to everyone, and the series too!

• …смертной любви - “(God, help me survive among this) mortal love”, text fragment on the “Fraternal Kiss” painting. (gotta love it, though i think it’s personally responsible for why so many people still think kissing is Russian men’s fav meeting ritual even nowadays)
Ich liebe dich - “I love you” (obviously)
Berlin zwischen West und Ost - “Berlin is between West and East”
Bonn→Berlin - a fragment of SPD’s poster calling towards unity (tho i’m not sure if it was in a brotherly way or you should all become one with Germany way)
