■TOKYO MONSTERS Comment
I am very happy to be in charge of the OP theme. I created this song to convey the tension and the struggle of the spies for the fate of the world.
■Ninomiya Yui Comments
My name is Ninomiya Yui, and I will be in charge of the ED theme for the TV anime “Tesla Note”. I read the original story before I started working on the ED theme, and I immediately became a fan of the work, especially because the characters are so unique and attractive. My song “Proseful LIFE” focuses on the main character, Botan Negoro, among many other attractive characters. Even though she has the heavy responsibility of saving the world as a secret agent, she is only 17 years old, and I wrote the lyrics thinking that she must have a lot of feelings. The tune of the song is bright and cheerful, but also jazzy and cool, and I think it’s quite a voluminous song, so I hope you enjoy listening to it.
