Comments from the theme song’s artists
Opening Theme, “BANG!!!” by EGOIST
Good Afternoon (Good Evening), I’m chelly, the vocalist of EGOIST.
It was decided that EGOIST will handle the opening theme song of Build Divide.
I am still unable to give detailed information, but the song’s name is “BANG!!!”.
I will be singing the song while being inspired by the self-encouragement of the main protagonist in the world settings that had directly reflect his feelings to be stronger and more honest.
I believe the hard sound is also linked to the world of the lyrics.
Please look forward to it.
Ending Theme, “Fukiagykuteki na Inochi no Shouzou” by Memai Siren
Hello, we are Memai Siren, who will be handling the ending theme song.
We are honored to be able to participate in this wonderful work as we are living quietly at the corner of Fukuoka.
We have written the song sincerely, so that it is able to help color up work even by a bit.
The ending song “Fukiagykuteki na Inochi no Shouzou” will focus on the common perception of the masses, common knowledge, etc. as it expressed the confrontation between the main protagonists, who are fighting for their dreams, with the King that is governing the world.
We hope you would watch the anime till the end.
