Kunimitsu Takahashi left a comment on the official Tokyo Ghoul:re website which you can read translated below.
I’m back here once again again.
The music I became involved with for the second time three years ago was for Tokyo Ghoul. After that I wrote music which not everybody could necessarily listen to while leading a reckless life as ever, but one day when I came to I was surrounded by a scene similar to that time three years ago. What was different was that after Tokyo Ghoul finished airing I became friend with Ishida [the manga’s author].
I don’t really remember how I wrote the song ‘Munou,’ but I think I probably wrote it on my own wherever my feelings led me. Time has passed, and I thought I wasn’t skillful enough to be able to manage doing things perfectly that way again, and I never thought I would want to.
I have come to see that some things change and some don’t. I’ve found myself in empty places. If we’re talking about how I’ve become, speaking honestly, I’m still a hopeless person, but I feel like I’ve been able to think about someone and create music, even just a little.
I’ve live being saved by lots of people. I was saved by lots of people and wrote the song Rakuen no Kimi. Thank you to Ishida for giving me this opportunity.
It’s still hot outside, so please all look after yourselves.
