    “The score leaves much to be desired and we’ll leave it at that.”

    An interesting comment, considering that this is one of my favorite scores by composer Joe Hisaishi (I have four CDs of music from the film). Maybe part of the problem is that the soundtrack was originally recorded in mono.

    Uh… I’m pretty sure a lot of us would not leave it at that. You are entitled to your opinion naturally but I can’t recall ever hearing or reading anyone else complain about the entirety of Joe Hisaishi’s music for this film.

    I might understand having a problem with a certain aspect of it, such as the 80’s synth elements, but that only makes up a portion of the score. You seem to have dismissed the entire thing.

    That said, I appreciate you reviewing this fantastic film and giving it the spotlight it deserves. I’d also recommend trying to read the entire manga series. It is amazing!
