    01.February.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE / MUSIC

    The music video for Aimer’s new song Haru wa Yuku has been posted on the singer’s official YouTube channel. The song will be used as the main theme for the upcoming anime film Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel III. spring song which will release on March 28, 2020 as the final film in the planned trilogy. 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).

    Takahiro Miki was the director for Aimer’s previous two main themes for the first two films, Hana no Uta and I beg you, which both have over 10 million views on YouTube. They star Japanese actress Minami Hamabe.

    Both Takahiro Miki and Minami Hamabe have returned for the final music video too, completing the trilogy.

    In the video, we see Minami Hamabe in two different outfits, black and white, standing underneath a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. Its beauty is a faint allusion to the Fate/stay Night: Heaven’s Feel movie story line, mixed together with chaos. We also see Hamabe appear as she did in the Hana no Uta and I beg you music videos too.

    The artwork for Aimer’s 18th single Haru wa Yuku/marie was also posted on her official website and features Aimer herself sat under a fully-bloomed cherry tree.

     

    Aimer said: “I’m so incredibly happy to have been able to weave this story together into one from three songs with [Yuki] Kajiura and three music videos together with director Miki and Minami, finishing with ‘Haru wa Yuku.’ I’m filled with gratitude for the both of them [Miki and Minami]. I want everyone to watch this final piece while thinking about ‘Hana no Uta’ and ‘I beg you.’ I hope this music video and the song ‘Haru wa Yuku’ resonates with people deeply.”

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.”

    The anime’s second opening theme Dark Crow will be performed by MAN WITH A MISSION, who are set to release the song as a single on October 23. milet will in fact feature as a guest vocalist on the single’s coupling song Reiwa.

    Speaking about the Vinland Saga series, millet commented: “When I first stepped into the world of Vinland Saga, I felt something that I had never felt before. [The character] Thorfinn is someone who rides the invisible wave between life and death, and who lives his life while learning about a part of him he never knew before. I wrote the song about the whirlpool emotions that I feel: pain, hope, strength, and love. I clashed with my emotions when I sang, along to a beat that sounds like stomping on the ground one step at a time. I am so happy to be one small part of this wonderful series. I hope people enjoy the song together with it.”

    She also commented on MWAM’s song Reiwa on which she will feature, saying: “When I first heard to Reiwa, my heart shook at the vocals-which feel like they are wrapping around you gently-and the powerful and majestic music which sounds like a bright white world spreading before you. I sing about the transition from the Heiwa era to the new Reiwa era and reflect on what it means to be happy. The best thing though is that I get to be a part of MAN WITH A MISSION’s music who I’ve always loved. I’m full of joy at that. Look forward to hearing us come together.”
