Omoinotake Members Express Their Appreciation
Omoinotake worked hard for many years until they finally got their major debut. Thus, they put passion into performing the song.
Hi, we are Omoinotake, and we created the opening theme song for the TV anime “Blue Period”.
We are so honored to be involved in this amazing work which is full of emotions including both the pain and the amazingness of creating things.
We thought we didn’t have any particular talents at first. Then we kept trying to find our way for many years.
Then finally we found our place. It is actually the same location as in the “Blue Period”, which is a live performance we did on the street in Shibuya.Comment from Omoinotake
In addition, they hope that this song will make people consider others who just started their own journeys:
“Doing what I love doesn’t mean that I am always having fun,” the words of Yatora reminds us of whowe are and we made a song with the words which were split from our feeling and melody.
Until today we have continued working on our band for the last 9 years and we just simply ‘love music’ just like Yatora who ‘loves drawing’.
We finished creating the world of ‘EVERBLUE’ as the opening theme song of “Blue Period”.
Complex, conflict, not going well at the beginning when you start doing something and suffering, we put all of these feelings into this song.
We hope many people put themselves into this song and think about the wishes of people who just started their challenges.Comment from Omoinotake (continued)
Omoinotake consists of junior high school classmates Leo Fujii (Leo, keyboardist/vocalist), Tomoaki Fukushima (Emoaki, bassist), and Hironoshin Tomita (Drage, drums). Formed in 2012, they gained popularity performing in the streets of Shibuya.
Their digital single “Moratorium” is the theme song for the anime movie “Twittering Birds Never Fly – The Clouds Gather.” Likewise, their November 2020 song “Ubugoe” is the opening theme for the TV Tokyo drama “Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?!”
They also appeared on THE FIRST TAKE YouTube channel for the first time as an independent artist.
