I interviewed the director of Fuku-chan of Fukufuku Flats for UK Anime Network while he was over here for the Raindance Film Festival. You can read my review of the film too if you’re so inclined (that might be a link to a link to a link, um – sorry!).
Seeing as I asked him about enka in the interview here’s a video of one of the songs featured in the film (as tracked down by ace music detective and film blogger genkina hito!)
Tabidachi no Uta
Those opening chords sound a little like I am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkel which I did listen to a lot as a child, maybe that’s why the song sounds so nostalgic even though I couldn’t have heard it before?
