I was attracted by the characters and story full of kindness and hope.
It features serious topics such as symbiosis of humans and animals, and environmental destruction, but on the other hand, it depicts love for friends, and their never-give-up attitude subtly and unapologetically portrayed.
I was moved by such a composition, which played an essential for me to produce the theme song for the Japanese dubbed version.
Everyone is different, so we clashed with each other. However, we are not special. We all are looking in the same direction, and we all are pursuing a place that can feel comfortable. Xiaohei is innocently growing up in a world, where there is no right answer, and he made me realize that.
I am so honored that 'Unity' was chosen as the theme song for this work with wonderful animation and story. Conflict and harmony are two sides of the same coin. However, I believe that this movie and song will be an opportunity to bring about a huge change.
