The sound of speed: Sonic 1&2 Soundtrack, Maaya Sakamoto - Buddy, Fate Zero - Memoria, Point .5 Doushinen & 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.

There are indeed a lot of celebrations this year. The speediest hedgehog in the game world holds his 20th birthday party in 2011. The music producer Nakamura Masato of the ultra-popular J-Pop band Dreams Come True collects his compositions for the classic game into this voluminous triple pack CD album.

From the familiar tracks from the UFO catcher machines to the music that players might have missed while they were in the game, the package has the most original and unadulterated flavor that's essential to Sonic.

Take to the skies with Maaya Sakamoto on the Silver Wings of Fam. The upbeat, soaring tune brings out the higher octaves of Sakamoto's crystalline voice and the bouncy energy in Buddy - the opening for the newest Last Exile series. The Limited Edition carries 9 more songs. All of them are the live versions, recorded during her concert tour.

Aoi Eir gave everybody a shock when she sings. Her clear voice delivers the intensity of the 4th Holy Grail war. Memoria is the ending theme of Fate Zero, the newest anime in the Fate series - it straightens out the story that goes before Fate/Stay Night. Meet Saber again and catch a glimpse of the power of the Holy Grail.

2011 is an incredibly fruitful year for the Nico Nico originated band Point .5. Highly popular singles come wave after wave, Color even enters 11th place in the Oricon Charts and becomes the ending theme of the Nihon TV program Happy Music. Doushinen, their second album contains all the hits and many more Vocaloid cover songs.
