Sing A Bit Of Harmony | Megan Shipman Brina Palencia and Risa Mei Talk About This Timely Feature Anime [Exclusive Interview]

Sing A Bit Of Harmony

There are times that a film seems to drop at the right time. This is the case for Funimation‘s Sing A Bit Of Harmony. This is a feature anime film currently in theaters. Anime seems to be more popular than ever. With that, I would hope that audiences would expand to a wider range of series and feature films. With that comes this very bright and uplifting film that had been making it’s way around film festivals and is now in theaters for everyone to enjoy.

Sing A Bit Of Harmony follows a girl that is a bit of a loner. But everything changes when her mother’s company sends an AI named Shion to join her class. She makes it her mission to make Satomi happy. Figuring that the best way to do that would be through song, she randomly starts singing despite the awkward responses from the rest of the class. But through time, Shion’s influence and positive self-less attitude begin to affect others for the best. Mending relationships and creating bonds.

To tell us more about Sing A Bit of Harmony, LRM Online‘s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with Megan Shipman, Risa Mei, and Brina Palencia. Shipman and Mei are two of the voice actresses that take care of the English version voicing Shion and Satomi. Palencia is the ADR director for the film. They talk more in-depth about their characters. As well as the effect an AI and song can have on people. It’s a wonderful conversation that you can check out down below!


Synopsis for Funimation’s Sing A Bit Of Harmony

Sing a Bit of Harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion (Tao Tsuchiya) who transfers to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular for her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent… but she turns out to be an AI (artificial intelligence) in the testing phase! Shion’s goal is to bring chronic loner Satomi (Haruka Fukuhara) “happiness.” But her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the classroom.

After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and her childhood friend, engineering geek Toma (Asuka Kudo), steadily warm up to the new student. Along with the popular and attractive Gotchan (Kazuyuki Okitsu), the strong-willed Aya (Mikako Komatsu), and judo club member “Thunder” (Satoshi Hino), they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing voice and earnestness even as her antics bewilder them. But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in some serious pandemonium… Get ready for the heartwarming story of a not quite market-ready AI and her classmates!

Sing A Bit Of Harmony is now in theaters. Presented in Japanese with English subtitles and English dub. Check your local theater for showtimes in your language preference. Subbed and dubbed showings vary by theater.
