I'm Omoinotake, and I'm in charge of the opening song for the TV anime "Blue Period".
I'm honored to be involved in this wonderful work filled with the pain and wonder of "creating".
We, three members, didn't have any "talent" at all.
"Then, what should we do?" we thought, after years of trial and error, we reached a street live performance in Shibuya, where Blue Period is set.
"Doing what you love doesn't mean it's always fun."
We overlapped ourselves with the words of Yatora and turned the overflowing words and melody into a song.
We've been a band for nine years now, and just like Yatora, who said, "I love to draw," I think we just "love music."
"EVERBLUE" is the opening song of Blue Period that we created.
We put all the complexes and conflicts, the initial impulse of the adolescents, the anguish, and the hope that awaits us in the future into the song.
I hope that many people will feel the same as this blue wish.
This time, I’m in charge of the ending theme song for the anime "Blue Period". I'm very happy and honored because I love this manga.
The anguish and struggle he went through to create his work, and the joy and excitement he felt when it was completed. Although the cultures of art and music are different, there are many parts of the story that overlap with my own, and the main character, Yatora, who is desperately fighting against his own situation, has encouraged me many times.
In "Replica," I put some messages that say, "Don't expect someone else to change the world, but change the world by yourself."
I would be happy if this song can get close to you in your struggle against the current situation.
