A few random updates on Animelo Summer Live 2011

A few random things came up long after returning from Japan to see Animelo Summer Live 2011.

Firstly, sometimes you don’t realise that you’ve been somewhere that you’ve seen in a movie or anime until much later.

In my case, I was reading the Wikipedia article on The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and realised that I had indeed been to the National Museum of Tokyo:

Secondly, after hearing and meeting Minori Chihara and Chiaki Ishikawa at Animelo Summer Live 2011, it was intriguing to see that Minori Chihara’s forthcoming album, D-Formation has a track, この世界のモノでこの世界の者でない 作詞, written by Chiaki Ishikawa and Daisuke Kikuta of Elements Garden. (Thanks Keiri for the help with the translation!)

D-Formation (Dream Wonder Formation) Album details in Japanese are at http://lantis.jp/special/chihara/d-formation/

Thirdly, the DVDs and blu-rays of Animelo Summer Live 2011 are now available for pre-order from CD Japan, with a scheduled release date of 28 March 2012.

Day 1 on blu-ray
Day 2 on blu-ray

NOTE – It again appears that some of the performances will not appear on the videos. Check http://pc.animelo.jp/anisama/2011/rainbow/goods/#cd_dvd_bd closer to the release date. At this stage Isao Sasaki, Kalafina and T.M.Revolution are *NOT* listed as appearing on the videos.


Hi, my name is Arthur Marsh from Adelaide, South Australia. I've enjoyed the music of anime since the days of Marine Boy, Gigantor and Kimba on black-and-white television, and more recently rediscovered the music of anime through the works of Studio Ghibli.

    One thing that I’ve always found interesting is how a lot of anime scenes are usually based on some real-life example. In ARIA, I remember how many of their buildings were taken from Venice. Same can be said for Higurashi, which did draw inspiration from a Japanese village. So in this instance, it’s always a treat when you recognize a building or neighborhood when you spot it in an anime.
