When I first saw it in theater, I had no idea how brilliant Wolf Children was going to be. It’s a little quirky, but is an entirely wholesome story about wanting to protect your family and loving them even when they aren’t right next to you.
Okaasan no Uta (or Mother’s Song on the soundtrack) is a lullaby sung by a young mother to her small child as she wishes for them to be happy and to remember that she will always love them.
It is one of the sweetest songs I’ve ever listened to and reading the translated lyrics only makes it more so… if ever I have children, this would be one of the lullabies I sing them. ❤
