Interview SPYAIR 


  • Q : So this is the third collbaroation with the anime "Gintama" after singing, "Some Like It Hot!!" and "Sakuramtsusuki", Around when did you start thinking about "Genjyo destruction"?  
UZ          : We read the script of the movie behorehand. After that, we had a discussion with the director around April and by that time, we had a firm concept of the musical piece. We were so happy to hear, "I would like a piece that resembles SPYAIR" from the director, which made us realize that he holds high expectations which was possible because of our close relationbship.
  •  Q : Why is "Gintama"special? Are there any impressive epiosdes?  
IKE         : I think that the characters are laid bak in a good way. They are always making fun of eachother. But there is a hidden message, that has struck my heart while watching the series. I feel that Gin san is very cool.
KENTA    : The long pieces that we see occasionally are awesome! Lol We feel grateful to be a part of such a fascinating piece. 
IKE         : The most memorable episode for me is the first one we collaborated with, "Kabukicho Shinnnouhen" in which we did a different arrangement for the ending theme of the last episode of this series. We never imagined that the song could revive such new feelings, and that was the pinnacle of our realization that when you put out songs that people will hear, it increases thats song personal value in all sorts of ways.
  •  Q :Who is your favorite character or the character you relate with the most in "Gintama"? 
KENTA    : I offer my sympathy towards Shinpachi recently. He is kicked everytime he gets bitter. (laughs) And he is actually happy when people kick him (laughs) 
IKE         : I'd go with Gin san. Gin san is cool! The enemies that go against him are awesome, which makes Gin san look even more cool. 
MOMIKEN : Afterall there is no doubt that Gin san is cool. Even though he is usually playing around, he is determined at the right times. I yearn to be a man like him. 
UZ              : For me…Kagura chan! Because she is cute!

  • Q : If you could get inside the world of "Gintama" What would you want to do with the characters? 
IKE         : I want to be Madao and try out his diary. I want to find out how deep it goes lol. UZ           : I want to meet Kagura chan in the future. She is a bit childish at the moment lol. KENTA     : Kagura chan in the future seems super cute! I wanna get stomped on lol And I want to ride on Sadaharu once.                                                                             
MOMIKEN : I want to drink one cup with Ginsan at Nomiya!

  • Q : The title of the song, "Genjyo Destruction" gives us a strong impression of the main theme of, "breaking through". How did you feel when you were writing the lyrics?  
MOMIKEN   : I believe that a message that one person can convey is limited in a good way. As a band, our theme has always been "breaking through" and this time we challenged ourselves to write even more straightforward lyrics that implied our theme. Therefore, the title of the song also accompanies this image. We wanted to write lyrics that encouraged people who lack passion for things. When we see other poeple working harder than us, we feel ashamed of ourselves. But this feeling is not something we should be embarrrassed of, so in such times we thought that this song could support the people who are trying their best.
