About the poster collaboration visual
I'm so thrilled to see the illustrations on the live-action posters you've drawn!
Lovely illustrations, I'm glad you did! Thank you.
About the notice.
I'm happy to say that this trailer is full of developments that will attract people to watch it, as it depicts a turnaround from the happiness of not knowing anything but despair in a world full of lies.
I hope that you will come to see the film to find out how they find a ray of light in a world of despair and how they open up.
About the Theme Song
"I wish midnight lasted forever" I've been listening to the songs because I love his worldview, so it was reassuring to hear him do the theme song for "The Promised Neverland".
The theme song, "I Can't Get It Right," is Emma and her friends fighting against the environment itself. When I first heard it, I thought I had a clear picture of the world of the live-action Neverland movie I was promised.
I can't wait to see the movie that will be completed when the theme song is played at the end of the film. Thank you for the wonderful music.
