Impressions when it was decided to be in charge of the opening theme song
It was a work that all the members(of the band) enjoyed reading, so I was very honored when I received the offer.
I watched the 1st season of the anime every week, and I was filled with anticipation for the 2nd season.
Impressions after reading “SPY x FAMILY”
It’s a stage that’s almost completely different from the world we live in, but there were many points where I could sympathize with the feelings of the various characters who live there, and it made me laugh and cry many times.
The Forgers are very charming, and their attitudes toward their fake family often make me angry.
This is the family I want to see forever.
I’m just curious as to what will happen next.
Thoughts put into song titles and songs
I wrote how I feel about the listeners I meet at the live venue, likening it to the road leading to an important place.
message to fans
I can’t wait for the 2nd cour, and I want to watch over the activities of the Forger family with everyone.
We hope you will enjoy our song “SOUVENIR” along with the opening animation. All the members are very impressed with the very nice animation.
