This soundtrack features 27 tracks, as well as 5 bonus tracks, including both the vocal and karaoke versions of the opening song ("On the Way Home") and the catchy closing song ("Mahoro de mambo")!
The latest anime release from Gainax (Evangelion, Fooly Cooly, His & Her Circumstances), the Mahoromatic soundtrack is available as a domestic anime CD release for the first time and the CD booklet will include the bonus comments from Music Composer Toshiro Masuda translated into English!The Review!
4 out of 5
Music found in the Automatic Maiden Mahoro Series.
This CD comes with a fourteen-page insert. The first page is a song list. The next page is a page long paragraph from Toshio Masuda on the music and how it fit into the series. The next page is the English and Japanese lyrics to the opening song On the Way Home. The following page is a full page, full color picture of Mahoro. The next six pages have small pictures from the series of the characters and Mahoro’s final wish written out. The next page is the English and Japanese lyrics to Mahoro DE Mambo. Next is a full-page collage of character pictures. And finally the last two pages are the credits for the CD as well as the series.
The music in this one is very good. The more intense of the instrumental tracks keep you on the edge of your seat, and the melancholy, yet sweet vocals are just what the doctor ordered to put you in a very mellow mood. The sounds of this one, though varied in each individual track is a perfect fit for the series that it is used in. There are moments of pure delight, balanced by a definite harsh shove into the word of robotics and battle. It is a real roller coaster of emotion that just makes you want to keep on listening.
This CD also has a few bonus tracks that just scream fun. The voice actress responsible for bringing Mahoro to life speaks the tracks in Japanese. They include the very cute Wake up call, answering machine message, and egg timer. And of course don’t forget the little rant on dirty thoughts. It doesn’t get any cuter than Mahoro and her rant on dirty thoughts. It was a nice surprise to hear coming through the speakers, and just seemed to perfectly finish off the CD.
I’d have to say music to my ears, a real well balanced CD.
Fangboy says…listen again, and it sounds even better.
