Notes & Reviews:

Following the release of the soundtracks to "Wolf Children" and "The Boy And The Beast", Milan Records is proud to release the soundtrack to "Summer Wars", the sophomore directorial effort by acclaimed Japanese animation director Mamoru Hosoda. Kenji is a teenage math prodigy recruited by his secret crush Natsuki for the ultimate summer job - passing himself off as Natsuki's boyfriend for four days during her grandmother's 90th birthday celebration. But when Kenji solves a 2,056 digit math riddle sent to his cell phone, he unwittingly breaches the security barricade protecting Oz, a globe-spanning virtual world where millions of people and governments interact through their avatars, handling everything from online shopping and traffic control to national defense and nuclear launch codes. This amazing gem of Japanese animation features a beautiful, playful score by composer Akihiko Matsumoto.
