Message from Rie Takahashi:
I have been given the opportunity to start my career as an artist. I can't narrow it down to just one reason, such as wanting to find a sound I like, or wanting to face an aspect of myself I didn't know, but I chose to take on the challenge at my own timing. The emotions and words that I have faced a lot in my voice acting career. I'm excited to see what kind of "me" will be waiting for me in the future beyond my musical activities of organizing and spinning them. While having fun, I would like to grow as a voice actor and an expressive person, so please watch over me warmly!
Also in a teaser PV below, she says, "I want people to see what I do rather than why I do it. That's what I want to tell them the most." You can hear some of her singing voice in the clip.
