Anime – Wings of Honneamise
Song – John Rubinstein – Corner of the Sky
Completed February 2010
Premiered April 2, 2010
When Anime Boston announced that the 2010 contest would be in HD, I only owned three anime Blu-Ray disks, so my selection of sources was a bit limited. I had just watched Wings of Honneamise the week before, so I settled on that very quickly.
The song was a bit harder, but dumb luck in picking up a secondhand copy of the soundtrack to Pippen and hearing “Corner of the Sky” got me thinking about flying and the hurdles that Shitotsugh and his Space Navy compatriots overcame to get into space.
I deliberately focused on the flying and his relationship with Requinni and cut out as much of the actual combat of the last act as I could, preferring to keep up the hopeful tone of the song.
