    “I asked the director how he wanted me to portray the last scene of the first film and how best to connect it to the second. I gave seriously thought to the song’s role as a main theme song and came up with this song, ‘Dokuhaku.’ When you see that final scene in the theatre, I’m sure you’ll be staring at the credit roll unable to even stand as you process the many different emotions swirling inside Bedivere.

  • Aimer to Perform Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel III. spring song Main Theme

    16.December.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Japanese singer-songwriter Aimer, known for her deep and husky voice, is currently on her sold out 24-date tour Aimer Hall Tour 19/20 “rouge de bleu” which is taking her to 17 locations across Japan.

    Aimer revealed at her concert on Saturday 14th in Sendai that she will perform the main theme song for the upcoming anime film Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel III. spring song which will release as the final film in the planned trilogy in 2020. Aimer also performed the main themes for the previous two films, Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel I. presage flower (2017) and Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel II. lost butterfly (2019).

    The title of the song is Haru wa Yuku (“Spring Continues”). It will be produced by Yuki Kajiura who also produced the previous two main themes by Aimer, Hana no Uta and I beg you.

     

    I beg you peaked at No. 1 on Oricon’s Weekly CD Singles charts, so excitement is high to hear Aimer’s next collaboration with Kajiura.

     

    Haru wa Yuku will release on March 25, 2020 as Aimer’s 18th single. It will include a new song entitled marie which is being used as the image song for “The Habsburg Dynasty 600 Years of Imperial Collections,” an exhibition currently taking place at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo from until January 26, 2020 in commemoration of Japan and Austria’s 150 years of friendship.

I would like to thank Kajiura, as well all of the people associated with the series, and all of the people who love the series, from the bottom of my heart. I was overwhelmed when Kajiura presented me with this song. I knew we’d have to perfect it down to the tiniest details. But I also wanted to sing about love, and all of the emotions it comes with, succinctly in one answer, and so I sang with everything I had. I cannot stop hoping that ‘Haru wa Yuku’ is a sing that the people who have watched the story to the end will love.”

    Yuki Kajiura said: “I am so happy from the bottom of my heart to have been able to work on the three main theme songs of Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel with Aimer. Over the course of the series, her voice has added to its flavour, and has consistently tied together everything from the sound to the world and how the heroines are portrayed. And she has once again poured her soul into ‘Haru wa Yuku,’ the song of the final chapter. I hope people enjoy it.”
