*Myutsuu no Tanjou*
The Birth of Mewtwo

Myutsuu no Tanjou is the CD drama included in the Sound Picture Box Mewtwo set, which was released shortly after the premier of the first Pocket Monsters film in the summer of 1998. Like it's sister set, It's a White Tomorrow!(Rocket-Gang Radio Drama), this CD set includes an audio play in five acts and a picture book. Sound Picture Box Mewtwo includes two CD disks, a miniature hardcover picture book and a plastic slipcase.

Disk One: This disk is engraved with a pink-and-blue image of infant Mewtwo and his friend, Ai. It contains five tracks which comprise Myutsuu No Tanjou: Pocket-Monster Radio Drama. It runs roughly one hour and covers the early days of Team Rocket, the discovery of Mew, the history of the scientist who created Mewtwo, and Mewtwo's childhood. Similar to the read-along tapes we had when we were kids, this disk is accompanied by a lavish CD-size hardcover book, with 64 pages of full colour illustrations. Characters that do not appear in any film or television show are illustrated in animation style, and some that do appear are depicted differently.

Disk Two: This second disk is engraved in yellow with Mew and Mewtwo. It contains twenty-three background music tracks, two vocal tracks and short dialogue clips from the film Myutsuu no Gyakushu. See the CD Page for details and lyrics. This disk is interesting in the Japanese score is not the same as the American one, save for two or three tracks.

Sound Picture Box Mewtwo is well worth your money, even if you dont speak Japanese. This disk has become harder adn harder to find in recent years, but is still purchasable in some online venues. If you choose to have a copy shipped from Japan through these stores, be sure that your copy is emblazoned with the Pikachu Records insignia. Companies such as Son May have produced bootleg editions, and these volumes do not include the artbooks.

While AnimeNation no longer stocks Pokemon goods, you can find BOM for purchase at Amazon. Or, more directly (and cheaply) at CD Japan. Both are less than I paid, so there you are!
