    We’re very thankful to be given the opportunity to provide the theme song for Soukai Tenki.

     

    Although the characters are separated, love is a powerful force that will always bring people together.

     

    This incredible realization led us as we created the song.

     

    I hope that this song inspires those who listen to it.

    This song was inspired by the battles and bonds between men in a world shrouded in darkness.
