A statement by LiSA

I am LiSa; the singer who was put in charge of the anime opening for Kimetsu no Yaiba. No matter what hardships fall upon him, the main character Tanjirou Kamado never gives up on his future dreams. I used the strength from this character to sing. This anime has inspired yet a new life. I am just as excited about the release of the anime as everyone else. Please look forward to the release of the anime and the opening theme song too. If you do, I will be very happy!
