RUANN’s first TV program theme song

NHK General TV
Anime “March comes in like a lion”
2nd season of 2nd series
Ending theme song

“March comes in like a lion” is a manga series by Ms. Chika Umino. The story is about the growth of main characters as a Shogi player, and at 2nd season it will become a story of the growth of the heart as a person together with the bullying problem. It have a lot of heavy and dark theme but the characters and drawings have a charming and sweet touches.

Actually I really like this manga, so I heard that RUANN would sing the theme song of this anime seriesI remember when I heard this song at first time, I was very surprised that the lyrics and the singing voice were mature. Or rather, I thought like “Is she really a fourteen-year-old girl?” I felt again that she was so amazing.

RUANN’s comment
“When I readed the original and saw the animation, I was attracted by the word and action of Rei ,Hinata and Akari. And Hinata and my ages was so close, so the scenes where Hinata become a target of bullying was very resonated on me. So When I realized, I felt like I am thinking together with the characters how to live. Then my emotion blew out at once, then I made this song.
I wasn’t expect to able to participate in the work of Chika Umino by the side of reader and as a big fan, so I’m very happy that I can participate like this. I hope that this song will support the feelling when everyone saw this animation !”
