＜Below contains the full commentary＞
We fripSide have always been in charge of the theme songs for Railgun for 10 years since 「only my railgun」 back in 2009.
Now we will also be in charge of the theme song for the 「A Certain Scientific Railgun」!
We will do our best to deliver a theme song that gives off the Railgun and fripSide vibe.
Please look forward to it!
It has been 10 years since fripSide debuted with 「only my railgun」. fripSide wouldn't be here today without that song.
It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say fripSide was brought up by the 「Railgun」 series.
I'm really happy to be able to be involved in not only the 「Railgun」 series but also the 「A Certain」 series.
I'll go all out with the song to repay what 「Railgun」 have done for us! Look forward to working with you all!
And this time, I will also be playing as the role of Maaya Awatsuki, so please look forward to it!
I'm also really looking forward to it as it's been a while since i get a role to play as!
【Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets／Kishida】
I'm Kishida from Kishida Kyoudan.
I have spent my life reading light novels since I was in junior high school.
Of course, I remember numerous works from Dengeki Bunko.
And of course, I must admit that i'm still an annoying enthusiast of light novels till this day.
Sorry if i'm an annoyance!
To think a day where someone like me would be involved with "A Certain Scientific Railgun" would come…!
You never know what's gonna happen in life….
And because of that, I'm now really excited and pumped up.
I will with the best of my abilities add blossom to this series as much as I can.
【Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets／ichigo】
If we were told that we could form a band called JUDGEMENT 9 years ago just to say the line “I'm a member of the Special Public Committee Group!”
You can see how this offer would make ichigo happy to the point that its like a dream to her…
Seriously! Really happy!!!
(Kishida said it as well) You never know what's gonna happen in life….
I will sing with gratitude, spirit and heart for the series that I love! Look forward to working with you!
