Comment from Eir Aoi
I am very happy to be in charge of the theme song for the movie version of SAO, which is important to me.
Both the lyrics and music were written by n-buna.
When I first listened to it, I got the impression that it was a song with clear “stillness” and “movement”, and that there was “sorrow” in it, but it also had an image of “freedom”.
I would like you to pay attention to the lyrics that have the will to “fly anywhere”. I hope that “Heart”, which I sang by changing my emotions according to the lyrics, will reach your hearts.
