Commentary from Amamiya Sora:
I am very happy to be able to perform the ending theme!
It’s a melody that really suits the enticingly epic atmosphere of the anime.
The song was composed to match the ambience the anime takes place at, ancient China. To add into that, I sang with all my might during the theme recording, while intentionally embodying a sense of melancholy with a tender smile on my face.
I get very excited when I imagine my song being played to the beautiful animation when it first airs.
So, do look forward for the anime and the music as well!
