With the long-awaited Sasaki and Miyano: Sotsugyō-hen movie coming out this Friday (February 17th), it is probably no surprise that Kadokawa and Nippon Columbia is already getting ready for the premiere in a variety of different ways.
One of them is by uploading the Sasaki and Miyano: Sotsugyō-hen soundtrack to all major streaming platforms ahead of time so that, when fans see the movie and love it, they can immediately relive the experience with the gorgeous music that illustrates the emotions that run through it.
Yep, Japanese music publishers are finally realizing just how much fans love anime music, and want to be able to listen to it over and over again.

Then again, the soundtrack was composed by the same composer — the incredibly talented Kana Shibue — with the addition of the catchy theme song ‘MARCH‘, which is performed by Miracle Chimpanzee.
The Sasaki and Miyano: Sotsugyō-hen album tracklist, which includes a number of instrumental tracks from the original anime series, looks like this:

The film itself (in English Sasaki and Miyano: Graduation) is due out in Japan on Friday, February 17th, alongside an anime adaptation of the Hirano and Kagiura spinoff manga.
