Today we see the release of Kanon Prelude DVD by Kyoto Animation and what is contained on this Prelude DVD is creditless opening and ending videos, and four promotion videos. Having seen the 2002 version of Kanon I was a fan from the very start. Now after watching this Prelude DVD…..OH MY GOD it is so damn pretty.
Opening theme is Last Regrets. This is the same opening as the game itself. Mainly consists of panning shots of the female characters.
Ending theme is ã€Œé¢¨ã®è¾¿ã‚Šç€ãå ´æ‰€ã€- Kaze no Tadori Tsuku Basho. Ayu running across a field of snow with quick screens of the other female characters.
The promo screen shots are from all 4 promos as they mainly use the same scenes over again with an except for the 4th promo, which actually have voices. Kyoto Animation have managed to get all the voices actresses from the original Kanon series but Yuuichi is replaced with Tomokazu Sugita (who is the voice actor for Kyon from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu). With this being more than a 13 episode series, I will be looking forward to see what Kyoto Animation will do in terms of storyline and such but so far at least I know the animation quality is high up there. Really, I was damn excited watching these and it was probably the best 10 minutes of this week.
