DAOKO: "I think it would be nice if the song can add some colors as a part of the film."
The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Aka Akasaka's romantic comedy manga Kaguya-sama: Love Is War announced today that 22-year-old rapper/singer DAOKO provides the film's insert song "Hajimemashite no Kimochi wo" (With the feeling of Nice to meet you). She is best known for her performance for "Uchiage Hanabi," the theme song for the 2017 anime film Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom?
She says, "I wrote the lyrics for 'Hajimemashite no Kimochi wo' by imagining Kaguya's feeling. I especially thought about her feeling in the 'heart-pounding space' in the episode about the fireworks festival, which was an episode that was so impressive and resonated with me in both the original manga and the film. I tried to think about her feeling, and sang to follow the lyrics sincerely. I think it would be nice if the song can add some colors as a part of the film ' Kaguya-sama: Love Is War'."
