The anime's voice cast will sing the winning songs, and Aniplex will give 100,000 yen (about US$1,100) to each winner. In addition to being used in the television broadcast, the songs will be heard on the Blu-ray/DVD releases, video streams, merchandising, events, promotions, and CDs.


Aaah the good ol' "we-don't-have-budget-so-lets-ask-the-fans" Laughing
Reminds me of when Crunchyroll tried to get people to subtitle that crappy Tezuka show for old films. Razz

AIC & Aniplex? No budget?
Surely you jest.

I have a feeling that it's cheaper to pay out 1,100 to 12 amateurs than hire a composer actually.

Hiroyuki Oda, an illustrator on the original work, is handling the anime character designs


Being picky here, but that should be "the illustrator of the original work", not "an illustrator on the original work". He uses a different name for his anime staff position, but it's the same person and the wording makes it seems like there's more than one illustrator on the original work.

I think this is a fantastic idea. It's a great way to engage the fans, over the usual producer -> consumer relationship. Plus there is a lot of excellent talent in the fandom (see doujin music groups).

They could do it in house for less, if not for "free" since they will already have a composer for the soundtrack. They would just need to hire a songwriter and/or singer if needed.

However, $13,200 flat for 12 different songs is certainly orders of magnitude cheaper than licensing commercially published songs (unless they can get a deal from Sony, being Aniplex and all),
