Music: supercell - Perfect Day

A nice song from supercell and this music video is absolutely beautiful. Not sure if it is from a new anime, the art is very similar to Makoto Shinkai standard and not sure if it is done by him. If anyone knows, please do leave a comment. Oh, ya. Remember to watch it in 720p! It's absolutely gorgeous!

Teaser Trailer: Makoto Shinkai's brand new anime Hoshi o Ou Kodomo

Yes! Another anime from Makoto Shinkai, the creator of 5 cm per second, Voice of a Distant Star and The Place Promised in Our Early Days.

The story centers on Asuna, a girl who spends her solitary days listening to the mysterious music emanating from the crystal radio she received from her father as a memento. However, she embarks on a journey of adventure to meet a boy again, and thus comes to know the cruelty and beauty of the world, as well as loss.

This anime will be in Japan cinema in May 2011.

Makoto Shinkai is a very talented artist and director. Most of his stories are about long distance relationship which sometimes its painful to watch and depressing. All of the drawings in his anime is breathtaking and it can be mistaken as real sometimes.

Ume-sensei Live Painting using Wacom tablet device

An interesting watch. Check out Ume-sensei live painting using Wacom tablet device. Pretty neat. I love to see how she draw an anime character and the process. I wonder how long did she actually take to finish drawing for a single anime character. In the video it has sped up 3x but still the video is about 15 minutes long!

Ume-sensei is a mangaka who created the characters in Hidamari Sketch and she also made special appearance as a caterpillar like character called Ume-sensei and she also did the cover voice for the character as well.

In actual life, she never reveal on how she looks like. Even though she has, you won't be able to see her face clearly. It's a mystery. I guess a lot of mangaka does that to keep their privacy.

Music: supercell - Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari

It's embarrassing that I didn't post anything for so long. To get it back alive (for now) let's enjoy a song from supercell. Their song is Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari. This song is featured as an ending song for the anime, Bakemonogatari.

The anime itself is good and confusing at times, but still manage to satisfy me. Today I didn't have much to do so I decided to search for this song in Youtube and to my surprise they have a music video for it! But it is not related to the anime though.

The music video didn't disappoint because I like the girl in the video. Enjoy.
