I just recently watched Garden of Words (Kotonoha no Niwa), another film by Makoto Shinkai. Shinkai created films such as 5 Centimeters Per Second, and The Place Promised in Our Early Days. Each of these films have their respective amazing soundtracks by the composer Tenmon, and he really outdid himself here with Garden of Words. It is so exuberant its almost like a pop song… almost.
It is so catchy its been stuck in my head for days though it does not help that I have listened to it at least 4 times a day since I have seen this movie. Motohiro Hata has MARVELOUS vocals. I know I have said that I enjoy female vocals more, but this may just take the cake. His smooth voice enticing me with every word. The guitar is standard Tenmon, but standard for Tenmon is pretty dang good. Overall this song is a must listen for anyone!
