    Hm, I’ve been inactive for a few months, but I can’t really think of anything to say. So instead, I’ll just wish everyone a good day!

What songs are you hoping will be on the song list for the world tour? Let us know in the comments!

Ahhh I assumed it was a full orch, not a wind ensemble. Now I really want to hear these arrangements x.x

Glad to read the folks were having fun! I would be possibly crying at those parts too. It's this type of music I would listen to over and over, without me getting tired of it! :) 

This is good and all but can you please play the Kh3 dearly beloved next tim?

You know something?  This interview made me smile so much, because you could tell by Shimomura and Wada's words that they were deeply immersed with full passion from every second of the concert to its conclusion!  They put their all into their music, and in the end, that's something all musicians do, so that they can resonate with the audience!  I can only begin to imagine how amazing the performance must have been, and I would've probably had goosebumps and cried as well! Gahhh, KH music is so beautiful! :')

 

Thank you for this article, Sora'spromise! :D

Patience, it'll come in due time.

 

Regardless, glad to know that Shimomura is just as attached to Kingdom Hearts as we are and that she feels just as personal about it as Tetsuya Nomura does!
