Uru’s Comments

I have read the story of both the original manga and the movie. It’s a story about humans and spirits, but it’s rooted in the encounters and separations we experience in life and includes themes of isolation and loneliness, people’s gentleness and love. It’s a masterpiece that moves the heart. I want not just kids to watch it but adults too. And for that reason, I wanted the song to reflect that. I wrote the song for people to build on their experiences and feel warm inside after listening to it as it talks about how the heart moves during our encounters and separations in life, things which everyone has experienced at least once. I would be overjoyed if people can feel that when watching the movie.


The music video is a special YouTube version and has different parts from the music video included in the limited pressing edition of the single which drops on September 26. Be sure to check out both videos.
