Image Album "Shiki" [Four Seasons]

CD No: Star Child KICA-560
Release date: 30 Oct 2001
Price: Y2381
Total length: 39:44 (11 tracks)

As its subtitle "Song for Ritsuko Okazaki" suggests, this CD is an image album of her songs and instrumental music. Yet it is probably closer to a soundtrack CD than an image album as both the OP and ED songs are included and at least some of the BGMs are used in the show.

In any case, beautiful orchestral pieces and Ritsuko's whisper-like songs combine nicely to make a really peaceful and gentle world of Fruit Basket. On the other hand this CD might be too mellow for some. If you find the anime too sweet, you might feel the same about this CD.
