Final Fantasy Artist Yoshitaka Amano Draws Olympic Champion Figure Skater
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Artist Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy series, Vampire Hunter D) recently drew the album cover for Onmyoji Complete Edition, a soundtrack to the 2001 film with score composed by Shigeru Umebayashi. The film follows Abe no Seimei (Mansai Nomura), an Onmyoji and astronomer from the 10th century.
One of the production images for the CD art shows a more fancifully dressed figure. He isn't one of the characters from the film either. It's actually Amano's rendition of Olympic figure skater and world record holder Yuzuru Hanyu. Hanyu performed routines to the film's soundtrack as part of his 2015-2016 season while emulating Nomura's role.
The two disc soundtrack went on sale on November 25.
