Comments from Kajiwara Gakuto
<About his debut as an artist>
Music has been inseparable from my life since I was a child, and it has been one of the ways to express myself.
I want to express my feelings, thoughts, and what I can do only now through the music, and send for the listeners.
<About the tie up with the ending theme song of “Black Clover”>
I have learned a lot of things throughout playing the role of Asta in Black Clover, and I could have built up a lot of experiences. I want to repay Black Clover in some other form.
<About “A Walk”>
I have been working on it in details with the staff since the meeting at an early stage. I gave a lot of opinions about a delicate nuance of lyrics, how the song should be, and others…..(laugh) However, they listened to me well. I have been very passionate in making the single, so please listen to the details as well!
