  • Takanori Nishikawa & Tomoyasu Hotei Write Song For Touken Ranbu: The Movie

    22.December.2018 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    It has been announced that musician, singer-songwriter and record producer Tomoyasu Hotei will feature on Takanori Nishikawa’s new song UNBROKEN. Both musicians are longtime associates; Hotei featured as a guest on Nishikawa’s self-cover album UNDER:COVER 2 (2013). Hotei reacted enthusiastically to Nishikawa’s request to feature on his new track.

    The song was written for the upcoming live-action film Touken Ranbu: The Movie which will be released on January 18, 2019. It is a head-to-head battle between Nishikawa’s vocals and Hotei’s guitar playing that captures the feeling of the film in both the sound and lyrics.


    Touken Ranbu: The Movie Trailer


    Comment: Takanori Nishikawa
    “So that I could write an appropriate song for the main theme that has in it both never-before-seen originality and enthusiasm I was able to summon Tomoyasu Hotei, the ultimate savant! He was in the middle of a busy tour at the time, but he gladly and very kindly accepted my request. I have nothing but gratitude for him. Hotei’s recording process is exciting. The tone of his guitar, the originality of each and everyone of his phrases, and his guitar solos. It was like he was just [casually] walking around. I’m putting my all into my vocals too for his unique guitar [playing], so please look forward to our two-man battle!”

    Comment: Tomoyasu Hotei
    “I have made music with Nishikawa several times but this is our first collaboration where we really face one another. Singing about Touken Ranbu’s showy world together with Nishikawa’s powerful and fast-paced sound is captivating like cherry blossoms dancing in a tempest. They entwine dramatically. My guitar too―I was able to play sharply and make it ever-changing like ninjutsu. Takanori Nishikawa has  many different faces, but you cannot dislike his true ability to shout. He’s a real vocalist, there aren’t many of them out there.
