NARUTO is very special to all of us. We’d love to continue traveling around the world together with it.

Thinking in a sense that NARUTO is one anime Japan can be proud about around the world, I’d even dare to say I obsessed over keywords like “Asia” and “Japanese style” during the songwriting.

NARUTO has lead our band overseas. It’s genuinely an irreplaceable work to all of us.
