We have been given the opportunity to handle the opening song for the TV anime “Mo Dao Zu Shi”.
We were glad to handle the opening of the Japanese version of this work that is really loved by many and it has also gotten a drama adaptation and anime adaptation based on the light novel.
“Senya Souka”, as the opening song for this magnificent story, is born from the sentiment of the various characters, including Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji. For us, CIVILIAN, it is a new song for our band and also a new stereo image.
For the fans of “Mo Dao Zu Shi”, those newcomers to this work, and also the fans of CIVILIAN, I hope that you are able to enjoy it. Please look forward to it. (Vocalist, Guitarist Koyama Hidekazu)
