posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The official website for Aura: Maryūinkōga Saigo no Tatakai anime film was updated on Wednesday to confirm Michiru Oshima as the feature's music composer.
Oshima scored several well-known anime series including the first Fullmetal Alchemist television series, the music-themed series BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, and most recently BONES' Blast of Tempest anime series. Oshima also worked on the Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa and the Fuse Teppō Musume no Torimonochō anime films. Fuse opens in Japan on Saturday.
Aura: Maryūinkōga Saigo no Tatakai is based on Romeo Tanaka's (Humanity is Declining) 2008 light novel. The school romantic comedy novel revolves around Ichirō "Menzu" Satō, a high school freshman who forgets his textbook at school one day. Ichirō encounters a beautiful girl while sneaking back into his school in the dead of night. The girl calls herself a witch from a parallel world. Ichirō used to suffer delusions of grandeur like this, but vowed to stop so that he can successfully re-invent himself as a freshman in high school.
Oshima joins director Seiji Kishi, story composer Makoto Uezu, scriptwriter Jun Kumagai, and character designer Kazuaki Morita on the film's staff.
