BW commish || Yumemi || Munto’s Parents
Lovely characters from Munto for red-winged-angel@dA. She’s a really huge fan of the anime and I have had the pleasure of drawing the characters for her plenty of times. Hopefully, I could get to check the anime this summer, when I’m free from school~ :D
If you don’t know about this artist, you should. This is the third commission I’ve asked her to do because not only does she do good work, but she is reasonably priced. Her name is iesnoth and you should look at her work especially if you love Treasure Planet and The Little Mermaid.
Q:Hi! I have one question. Do you know witch song it is in Munto 2 when Yumemi looked up to the Heavens and remembered what Munto told her?
Sadly, I don’t have the soundtracks for the series series before the third movie, let alone for the original OVA’s for that matter; so unfortunately, no. I wish I could help. =(
Well, that has changed now.
Unfortunately, I’m unable to contact the user, since it appears they changed their name or deleted their blog, so to answer the question, the song for that scene is is called, 灰色の空 [Gray Sky] by: 神前 暁・monaca.
It’s within the second soundtrack, but I have yet to post it up, so please be patient and you’ll get to listen to it soon enough!
Since the original site no longer exists, our last tag within our page was pretty useless. So, I’ve made updates, while tagging, if anyone wants some organization within the archive.
Munto: 20 Day Tumblr Challenge
The blog hasn’t been very active lately. :/ There aren’t enough Munto-related goodies out there that haven’t been shared already! Here’s something to pass the time.
Day 1: When did you first discover “Munto”?
Day 2: Which version of the series do you prefer? (OVA or TV?)
Day 3: Which art/animation style found within the series do you like best? (OVA 1, 2, or TV?)
Day 4: Who is your favorite human character?
Day 5: Who is your favorite Heavenly character?
Day 6: Who is your favorite villain?
Day 7: Who is your least favorite character? (Please refrain from hating.)
Day 8: Do you have a favorite pairing? Which is it?
Day 9: If you had the power of the Outsider, what would you do with it?
Day 10: What’s your favorite piece of Heavenly technology?
Day 11: If you lived in the Heavens, which country would you live in? What would you do for a living?
Day 12: Due to so many incarnations of the franchise, many different voice actors (both English and Japanese) have participated in Munto. Which cast is your favorite? (OVA 1, 2, TV, or dub?)
Day 13: Battle royale. Who would win?
Day 14: Lord Munto has been accused of being a lolicon on several occasions. Do you think this is true?
Day 15: Have you ever read the manga? Do you approve of it?
Day 16: What do you think of the show’s music?
Day 17: What’s your unpopular opinion in relation to the series?
Day 18: Many facts about the Heavenly people are left unanswered in the series. Have you come up with any idea of your own?
Day 19: Fast forward ten years. What sort of lives do you think the characters would be leading?
Day 20: Finally; many fans weren’t happy with the ending of the television series. If you could write your own ending, serious or not, what would it include?
"That is Akuto, the almighty power created this celestial world.
If one thoughtlessly tries to lay hands on this power, he will be consumed by it and destroyed. If one fails to comprehend its nature, it will consume him with grief, and corrupt him. Only those who come to realize the truthfulness of those facts can truly come to know themselves.
The crisis in the Heavens has ended, but the destruction of the world has not been avoided. To save this world, we have no other choice than to return the Akuto cycle to it’s original state.
Yumemi… you and I are the only one’s who can do that. But, you still haven’t realized who you really are. There isn’t much time left, but I believe in you.”
So, I’m pretty sure I understand most of how the Magical Kingdom is laid out according to the pillar placement and Sacred Pools.
1-2.) Right within the introduction, Gas mentions that the third pillar has fallen. I assumed it could be either of the three highlighted, however, noticed the small dip within the map, while the peeking of pillar two was showing, so I knew that it couldn’t be the bottom end.
3-5.) OVA II helped out a lot within signifying which point the royal palace was built. I’m still a bit confused of where exactly the fifth pillar is located, but because of the surrounding clips—with Ryueri clutching Toche from the earthquake current—I presumed it was close by to them.
6-7.) I managed to figure out which of the two it was through the map alone. That little pointer was signifying where Gas and Leica were quaralling, so with that destroyed, that left me with pillar six.
Hopefully the maps are easy enough to understand, when it comes to the Sacred Pools.
Screen-caps of OVA I-III; excluding the small red image of Munto overlooking his kingdom. That was within the Box-Set.
Yes, I realize I have yet to post that up, however, my friend is still working on translations. I’m not giving her a deadline since I asked for so many…

2. Smile Flower by: Yumemi Hidaka (Mai Aizawa)
Shall we for a picnic invited by the gentle wind?
Now, this is the place to walk.
Songs of laughter bouncing to the metronome of footsteps
And danced happily while looking at the sky now.
“Because you are always by my side,”
I strongly thank you for your kindness.
In the cheer of I have to eat lunch
Now the flowers smile and have bloomed beautifully.
What a nice picnic day, I'll have no other just like today.
Now take a deep breath and spread both hands.
Our chatter is not likely to stop, overlooking the town.
I want to hug this moment, this is not casual.
“Because I want to see the same sky,”
I will be strong so thank you for that warmth.
You will laugh, while everyone is munching to their lunch.
This flower smile's treasure.
