Impression that I try to convey
It was a challenge for me as it is my first collaboration single, I was very anxious. But there is also a feeling of respect of her deep talent, and I am honored that we were able to collaborate together.
I think it is because the song tells the story of lonely figures who fight with a strong heart and we can’t help but be drawn to these people. I truly hope it becomes a song that can give a little push to people.
For that it has determined the movie « Amazing Spider-Man 2 » Japanese dub version of the theme song
It is a great honor to be chosen as the theme song of the movie people from all over the world know.
Because we created the song to suit the world of the movie, I am glad if people can enjoy the two of them together.
Message to the people of the world and thoughts about the world launch of the first
Hopefully people from the world will be able to listen to Fighter, I feel very flattered.
I’m glad to become one part of the world if we can manage to boost the World Cup with this song!
Messages of support for Japan national team of Brazil World Cup
It is about that moment when you received enough courage and excitement to face your fears and fight bravely.
I think that even the process of the song was challenging as a representative of Japan, there are many trials and efforts to be done.
That song that we hope you can shine through hopefully will be enjoyed in Brazil, it is dedicated to everyone who is a « Fighter », we will also be very happy to support with full energy.
