Mashiro no Oto



Marimo Ragawa's manga series "Mashiro no Oto" is reportedly receiving a TV anime adaptation scheduled to begin April 2021, animation production: Shin-Ei Animation.

Plot

Quote:
Shamisen is a traditional Japanese musical instrument that looks similar to a guitar. Teenager Sawamura Setsu’s grandfather who raised him and his older brother Wakana, recently passed away. His grandfather was one of the greatest Shamisen players and the two siblings grew up listening to him play and learning to play the instrument.

Since the grandfather’s death, Setsu dropped out of high school, moved to Tokyo and has been drifting, not knowing what to do besides play his Shamisen. That’s when his successful and rich mother, Umeko storms into his life and tries to shape Setsu up. She enrolls him back into high school but little does Setsu know that he is about to rediscover his passion for Shamisen.

The first episode was pretty good and the shamisen music was also good but the end of the episode was a WTF moment and no mistake.

Looking forward to where it goes from here.

TIL Arata has a little brother who's really into shamisen, I bet he had a deja vu moment when his little brother stopped playing after his grandfather died.

The drama and comedy (based on the last scene) was over the top. The visuals are also on the poor side. But I think I'll bear with it because the shamisen playing scenes were and sounded fantastic.

Was it stated who is providing the actual playing sounds during the shamisen parts?

Crunchyroll is carrying the stream under the name "Those Snow White Notes".

I really liked this show until the closing scene. Over-the-top crazy just destroyed the nice atmosphere that had been built up throughout the episode. Sadly I fear that woman is going to be an important character.

I have very mixed feelings about this first episode. My main issue being the whole 10/10 gravure idol/hostess taking pity on the MC and letting him live with her for free. That requires some huuuge suspension of disbelief. There's a reason I didn't pick up that anime about the guy who takes in a high school girl this season, I'm even less interested in seeing the same thing with genders reversed. Thankfully it was just for this episode and the girl will probably never show up again. It's actually a bit of a shame because she was a good character. It's even more of a shame that it's looking like her total dick of a boyfriend might become a regular.

And then there was that scene at the end. WTF?

I forgot to say something good. I liked the shamisen? Let's go with that.

I realized the old brother was voiced by Arata's seiyuu but I didn't make the connection with the whole grandfather thing. That's rather amusing.

This is at least better than Mars Red and Jouran. This shamisen sounds really good.

Agreed, the end really took me out of it. That and the fact that her ex boyfriend is apparently sticking around.

The well-known sibling duo Yoshida Brothers, who will also be providing the ED. No worries there.

You'd think Wagakki Band would have been used for the OP in this show rather than Mars Red. After all, they have someone who plays the shamisen. Rather different style from Setsu though!

My favorite piece by the Band is this:

I also wish they'd put the boyfriend on the bus train instead...

So apparently this is going to transition to a school setting. One of the visuals shows the cast wearing school uniforms.

The second episode was terrific. Totally made up for the first one. The performances were already great last week, but they reached a new level this time. I was quite mesmerized by the mother and son performance.

Yuna and her ex-boyfriend are in the OP (briefly) but I'm not sure they'll actually return. They'd be kind of out of place.
