Message from Yuika Kubo:
“Kiminara Kimishika” is my voice. It’s my song. The producers and directors who encouraged me to create it, the staff who have always supported me with everything they have. Above all, Shikanoko-san, who has listened to my songs with her heart. This is “our song,” which was created thanks to all of you. It’s very difficult to put into words, but it somehow makes me feel better. I think “you” will understand it, and “only you” may understand it. This song is like a secret, and I can’t help but love it. I hope you this song will be conveyed to you. Thank you very, very much for everything.
