Mimi wo Sumaseba
(Whisper of the Heart)
The files are all JPEG pictures. They are:
Hope everyone enjoys these!
- Nice picture of Baron when Shizuku first sees him. Looking at this you
can tell the background is *not* a photo.
- Map of Shizuku's town from the back of the theater program booklet.
This was the center of a two-page spread; I didn't want to upload the
whole thing because it would have been two full-page scans.
Here's a key to the numbers:
- Shizuku's apartment building.
- The bench where she meets Yuuko.
- The "Family Mart" convenience store in front of the station.
- The Mukebara (?) station close to Shizuku's home.
- The railway crossing next to the station.
- Yuuko's house.
- The ramen shop Shizuku passes on the way to and from school.
- The shrine where Shizuku and Sugimura talk.
- On the way to school.
- Shizuku's school.
- The "Keio" line between the two stations.
- The Sugi-no-miya station, for the library.
- The library where Shizuku's father works.
- The hillside where Shizuku looks down at Sugi-no-miya after
temporarily losing Moon while following him.
- Chikyuuya (Earth Shop).
- The hilly street where Seiji gives Shizuku a ride up (or tries to) on
- Where Shizuku and Seiji watch the sunrise from.
- The inside overleaf of the original "Mimi o sumaseba" manga by
Aoi Hiraagi. This shows the character design for Shizuku and a
nice picture. The writing says: "Mimi o sumaseba. kaze no oto. ame no
oto. hoshi no sasayaki. shoshite kotoba." (roughly: If you listen
closely. The sound of the wind. The sound of the rain. The sparkling of
the stars. Thus, words.) A theme throughout the manga is that our
feelings and experiences are important, so we write them down to preserve
them. This is why Shizuku wants to write.
- The first page of the manga, with a facing page showing the
character design for Seiji. The words say "The day I first
noticed that name was a certain one in August." Shizuku giggles (kusu
kusu), closes the storybook (pon!), and says "Aa, omoshirokatta" (Ah,
that was interesting/fun).
