Kajiura’s new work: Achilles to Kame

June 20th, 2008

Thanks to J. Uzuki for posting this in the forum!

In the wake of Dream Port and Namae no Nai Michi releases, we thought we’d find ourselves with less to look forward to. However, that is not the case! It has been confirmed that Yuki Kajiura is composing the soundtrack for the Takeshi Kitano film, Achilles to Kame (Achilles and the Tortoise). No announcement of a soundtrack publication yet.

The film, named after one of Zeno’s Paradoxes, will premiere on September 20, 2008. Paraphrased from J. Uzuki, it will be a comedy dealing with the troubles of an untalented artist, and his road to improvement upon support from his wife. Official Site.

On a completely unrelated note, it’s also been confirmed that in the sprinter/ARIA DVD, the video for sprinter will be of Kalafina, and the video for oblivious will be an animation sequence by ufotable (the makers of Kara no Kyoukai).

    Whoa, a comedy? Seriously? From the trailer, I could swear it passing as a tearjerker. But the music is gorgeous. Can’t expect any less from Kajiura-sensei!
