“Deaimon” went to Tokyo dreaming of a musician, but when his father was hospitalized, he decided to take over the Japanese sweets shop Midorimatsu in Kyoto. A heart-warming story centered around a girl, Kazuka Yukihira. The original is being serialized in Young Ace (KADOKAWA).
Comment from Maaya Sakamoto
I will sing the theme song “菫” of “Deaimon”.
I asked Shigeru Kishida of Quruli, my favorite band for the song, and I wrote the lyrics. A warm and gentle melody drawn by Mr. Kishida from Kyoto, as if the scenery seen from the “Midorimatsu” store was cut out.
A wonderful song was born that was close to this story . Violets are familiar flowers that you often see, and you can also see them in the gaps in concrete. It’s a small existence that you would overlook if you don’t pay attention to it, but it’s actually very powerful and blooms in close proximity. I gave this title by superimposing the activities of human beings on the appearance of such flowers. Please look forward to it on the air.
Enthusiasm for broadcasting
I am very happy to be able to participate as part of this favorite story. The truth is that Ichika and Midorimatsu, who live in Kyoto and have many seasons with Japanese sweets, have a slightly different atmosphere. Please look forward to seeing how Ichika is involved.
Comment from Shigeru Kishida
The highlight of “Viola”
Very good song, great lyrics and performance.
About Maaya Sakamoto’s songs and lyrics
The vocalization of Maaya who sings the beautiful diffusion of energy like the ripples when water drops fall is just wonderful. The words that gently snuggle up to us living in this era while having the strength of a fetal movement are the great charm of this song.
Impressions of reading “Deaimon”
Many of my classmates are Japanese sweets shops, so I enjoyed reading it as a familiar theme. When I was a student, I also worked part-time at a Japanese sweets shop. “Deaimon” is very attractive because both the character and the story have a human touch.
