    06.July.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Eir Aoi’s new song Tsuki o Ou Mayonaka was released digitally today ahead of the CD’s release which is set for August 28. A new visual along with the CD cover have also been revealed.

    The song is used as the main theme for the TV anime series Granbelm which premiered yesterday.

    Speaking about the song and series, Eir Aoi commented: “My new song Tsuki o Ou Mayonaka is speedy and uptempo. The lyrics talk about the many memories you share with the important people in your life that can’t be severed by anyone. The song title is a metaphor and means that even if painful or sad things (midnight) approach us, the moon (the memories we share with those important to us) won’t darken and will continue shining on. I was surprised and pained by the human nature of the characters in Granbelm, but each of them are unique and have their own appeals. I can’t discuss too much because of spoilers, but I think this series will really touch the heart of those who see it.”

    Aoi’s statement

    My new song Tsuki o Ou Mayonaka is an upbeat song which reminds us of the times we have been frantically persuing something. The theme of the song is tying ourselves close to the people whom are precious to us and the belief that our precious memories will not be destroyed by anyone or anything. The title of the song is a metaphor to show that no matter how far deep we fall into a dark place, the people precious to us will always act as a shining beacon of light to guide us out. You will be so shocked at the level of inhumanity of some of these characters! Watching the series made my heart ache but each character is so unique you won’t be able to help but watch. I am afraid of giving away spoilers so I won’t talk too much but I am sure that if you watch it then your heart will be pierced too!

     

  • LiSA Sings Her Heart Out in New Kirin Lemon Commercial

Kirin Brewery, the company that created the drink, changed the can design and flavour on April 9 this year. Last year they also carried out the “KIRIN LEMON Tribute” to hugely positive reception, and this year, the brewery is bringing it back.

     

    The first entry to the tribute was a commercial which featured appearances from model and actress Yui Sakuma and 22-year-old musician Miyakawa-kun. The video enjoyed over 1.5 million views in the first month of being posted and also earned huge views in Twitter’s 2019 Promoted Trends posts.

    The next commercial has finally been released and includes appearancs from young actor Ryota Bando.

    Popular Japanese pop-rock singer LiSA lends her powerful voice to the commercial and makes her own appearance. This second commercial links in with the story in the first.

     

    Interview: LiSA on KIRIN LEMON Tribute

    ——-How did the video shoot go?
    LiSA: The location I was filmed for this commercial was a school classroom. Seeing all the desks lined up, the blackboard and the curtain swaying in the wind filled me with a huge sense of nostalgia.

     

    ——-Tell us about your outfit.
    LiSA: The clothes had a different image from what I normally wear, but they felt like something a grown-up would wear and had this invigorating quality to them just like Kirin Lemon!

     

    ——-Tell us something that happened to you while shooting.
    LiSA: The shoot took place earlier than the actual recording, so I had to memorise the lyrics while we filmed so I wouldn’t forget them. It’s the first time I’d experienced that.

     

    ——-What are your thoughts on this collaboration?
    LiSA: I’ve heard the Kirin Lemon melody many times since being a child, so it was an honour to get to be the one to sing it!
