Animecast: Children Who Chase Lost Voices


We’ve definitely had our share of great titles from the mind of Makoto Shinkai. Take 5 Centimeters Per Second and Garden of Words for example. However Children Who Chase Lost Voices is definitely a step in a different direction for us. Is this movie another good mark in his legacy, or a failure? Listen and find out our take on it!

All music in this episode is from the soundtrack for Children Who Chase Lost Voices.  The intro is an instrumental version of “Hello Goodbye & Hello” by Tenmon.  The outro for this episode is “Hello Goodbye & Hello” with vocals by Anri Kumaki.  Finally, the spoiler segment ends with the song “Mimi no Itazura” by Tenmon.

We hope you all enjoy!
