Inochi no Namae

My god Joe Hisaishi and Ayaka Hirakara performs this song, Inochi no Namae. This was a song from the movie Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi aka Spirited Away. I never knew that movie was so nice, until I watched a Hong Kong version dubbed in Cantonese. (Erin Cheng, Jacky Cheung, Cecilla Cheung) Yeah, that made me more determined to buy the original version.

I have heard the Spirited Away Soundtrack before, mainly because it is composed by Hisaishi, but the movie is beautiful as well, and I fell in love with this boy Haku, who stepped in to help little Chihiro, and alas, he is actually a white dragon.


(Literally means White) Voice: IRINO Miyu

A mysterious boy who helped the frightened Chihiro when she found her parents changed into pigs. He continues to help Chihiro, but sometimes he takes a cold attitude toward her. He seems to work for Yu-baaba, under her secret orders.

The thing about why females always become young boys' seiyuu, is that the voices of young boys haven't broken yet, which is why getting a small boy might be a little unconvincing, and a man too deep a voice.
