    GRRR! The soundtrack is so beautiful! I just love it. ;u;
    It matches the game grandly. And goodness, I cannot wait for the game~. My boyfriend, our friend and myself are just going to gush over it. ♥

    Seeing bits of the game in the vid was so magical, and it was fun listening to what Hisaishi had to say~. I really hope they get to do a concert for Ni no Kuni one day. ♥v♥

    love his work! the man’s a frigging legend!

  • I can’t wait for Ni No Kuni to come out. The demo was great.
    I understand what he means as music is my forte as well. The world in which they created and his music do fit very nicely together as he said.

  • “He discusses how he got involved with the project” as if there was any question about his involvement in a Ghibli project ( `∀´ )
    Though with that said, I find it interesting that he comments on how it’s not always easy to come up with the main theme. As if to make a hint that his style isn’t in fact the most appropriate to use on Ghibli works at all times.
