Comment from GARNiDELiA

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.

MARiA

 

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

 

We created this song with both strength and sadness in mind, and I hope that it sets the stage for the characters’ stories.
