Over the sky: Haruna Runa - Sora ha Takaku Kaze ha Utau, Choucho - Yasashisa no Riyuu, Sato Toya - Kaiji 2 & more! - in Weekly Music and Movies Update!


Welcome to this week's Movie/Music news roundup, containing new Japanese and Hong Kong Video and Music releases from this week listed at Play-Asia.com.

Starting her career as a reader's model for the magazine Kera. Haruna Runa shows that she has both the style and the voice when she wins the Anime Song Grand Prix. In 2012 Spring, she debuts with a bang. Sora ha Takaku Kaze ha Utau is the ending theme of the Fate Zero 2nd Season.

The Holy Grail wars reache a white hot phase, Haruna Runa's strong melodic voice takes listeners to soar over the skies and dive deep into the hearts of the characters. Composed by Yuki Kajiura, the song captures a sense of nostalgia and the intense emotions that rolls through the series.

The juvenile mystery series Hyouka brings the glitter of magic and surrealism into reality. New worlds and adventures are always just around the corner, you only have to pluck up your courage and open the door. The theme song Yasashisa no Riyuu gives listeners this push.

The medium beat rock tune has a powerful base beat, Choucho's voice is steady and energizing, exactly the right sound to welcome you when you open the door to a new journey.

After the embarking on a musical journey, it's time to set up the con of a century. Kaiji is back, and is broke again. To pick up the pieces of his life, he needs money, the more the better. And preferably quick.

He challenges the ultimate gambling machine Swamp. However, skills are not enough, as the machine is controlled by Ichijou, one of the competitors who went through the Skyscraper of Darkness game and won.

To prove that they are not losers, the slaves under the Teiai group come together. Some of them have families destroyed by Teiai, some of them are previously high ranking officials in the group. With the brains of a genius and the courage of a fool, the group pit themselves against a Behemoth to win their freedoms back.
