I am TSUNKU♂！”, states the legendary producer, writer and musician, “I am a producer of MORNING MUSUME I am happy to hear that there are many anime fans in America. I think Anime culture is universal and I’m glad to hear American people are so into it. I believe good anime remains a masterpiece forever. At the same time, there is a very important element: music. I think music is a universal language, and music should be enjoyable from generation to generation. I am proud that MORNING MUSUMEhas made the theme song for Anime Expo® 2009. The concept of this song is positive power even during hard times.
I wrote this song just for Anime Expo® 2009. I imagined everybody’s smile when I wrote it, and I’m looking forward to seeing you guys at the MORNING MUSUME concert. I hope new great energy will be born at the convention from this collaboration between Japanese and US culture, and that it will last into the future.”
