Those Snow White Notes

Postby Voice From Limbo » Fri Jul 09, 2021 1:08 pm

Because I'm tired of Cialis spam at the top of this particular pile -- and because I'm bored -- here's the trailer for a new anime series, "Mashiro no Oto". Nothing related to wargames, no SF/Fantasy connection either; it's about shamisen players:

Opening title sequence:

The series was adapted from a long-running manga series, which must demonstrate something akin to a Rule 34-equivalent for manga: "If it exists, there's manga for it".

Just as I thought -- not a peep. So I'll carry on, then. Setsu, the protagonist, a country boy, leaves home when his grandfather, a tsugaru master, dies:

He nearly gives up the shamisen, but circumstances find him onstage, filling in, until the rock musician the audience came for recovers from a temper tantrum:

Just imagine being 18, going to see the latest rock god, and having a hillbilly banjo picker come out instead (or substitute whatever cultural equivalent applies).

His brother comes to the city to check up on him, and they play a duet in the park -- one of my favorite scenes:

Then his manipulative mother shows up -- in keeping with anime tradition, a cold bitch must also be a hot MILF:

This, as I mentioned, is adapted from a long-running manga series, which is up to 25 collected volumes so far. I wonder how many countries could produce a similar comic book series about musicians?
