CLICK HERE FOR THE VERSION WITH SOUND The version currently on DA is a silent version and is NOT THE REAL VERSION. Due to song copyright restrictions I may not host the actual song on DA without Yoko Kanno's written consent. So I encourage you to read the description for further information
It is my request and I encourage you all to still favorite and comment on it here and treat it as if it was still hosted here, because I LOVE getting all the feedback (I never go on New Grounds so any comments on there will probably go overlooked)
Anyway, on to the normal stuff:
At first when I was making this it was just for the soul purpose of animating something singing, but after a little while I began to develop a story to the character. Basically, she is a little fox that dreams of flying, and then something happens. In the end, she gets what she wants though. So, it is sad and happy at the same time?
(Also, please quit comparing this to the Kiwi student film. I made this before I ever saw or heard of that short but I know they have a very vague similarity, thank you)
There is a message in this, simple as it is. I will let you guys decide what it is.-- Song:
It's from the album "Genesis of Aquarion."
I will not post a link to where the song can be downloaded but rather encourage you to support the greatness that is Yoko Kanno and buy her music. If you search for her name or album titles on Ebay or AnimeNation you will find her great music. Believe me, it's worth it. Here is one helpful link to where more of her music can be found
The Lyrics, as many have disputed, DO NOT TRANSLATE INTO ANY EXISTING LANGUAGE. The song is a made up language which is characteristic of Yoko Kanno. She does that a lot (check out the whole soundtrack to Escaflowne). As far as I can tell, it is just a bunch of languages mixed together, so naturally, there is no direct English translation of the song
so please don't ask me. However, in the CD booklet japanese lyrics are written for the song. It is my understanding that those are simply the thoughts and made up lyrics behind the song and the actual audio of the song is not an existing language (once again, Yoko Kanno does this a lot. I have several sound tracks where all the sung songs are jibberish yet they still have a japanese lyric written out in the booklet). So thanks for the heads up, turns out there is a meaning behind the song.-- Program Used:
