    Comment from Kobato Miku (BAND-MAID)

    “I read JUMP comics on a daily basis, so it feels like a dream come true that BAND-MAID could be involved in this project-po. Beyond that, I read Platinum End from start to finish, so I feel so honored and happy that we were chosen to perform the opening theme-po. I hope our song will energize the world of Platinum End-po.”

     

    Comment from Miyashita Yū

    The mystery of the original series, the transition from despair to hope, the core strength and courage of the protagonist’s heart and whatnot – I was conscious of each of these feelings as I performed my song. The song tells of the divine and yet powerful, of how even through pain, we can look towards the present, the future, and even the world. It was hard work blending in the superimposed voices throughout the track to suit the song and lyrics, so I would be greatly happy if you could pay attention to them.
