Dandylion13’s recent post on Hosoda Mamoru has just got me into listening to Takagi Masakatsu’s music for Wolf Children. I was also reminded of the excellent OST review over at Anime Instrumentality Blog.
[Wolf Children OST] Nene by Takagi Masakatsu

This particular track is my personal favorite from the OST, but the rest of the album is more than just decent, as well. In all honesty, they were used with great timing and appropriateness in the film.
Nene probably resonated with me more than the other tracks did, because I always remember the fun in the wolf children’s childhood. The montage mirrors the high spirited youth of the children. It was something I could somehow relate to. Or maybe yearn for.
