That news is truly a treat! I've admired Kaoru Wada since childhood! Inuyasha was one of my first anime, D.Gray-man turned into one of my favorite series, and his scores are truly touching, memorable ones! Great guest, AnimeBoston! I was so sad when I had to miss last year but this is a great welcome back along with Flow! 👍🏾

I have a CD of the Jubei Ninpucho/Ninja Scroll soundtrack. It's an interesting selection of themes, and something I'd love to get Wada-san's signature on.
Klein bottle for rent; inquire within.

Awesome!! He's not one of the composers I suggested but I like a lot of his works! I guess I'll be bringing my Inuyasha soundtrack CD to Boston :)

Ya think he'd sign one of my Inuyasha DVD Boxsets? That's the only official merch I have for him to sign...
