Do you know the reason why she's gone? Has she led to the bright red world? How can I also go to the world? Her singing voice is heard. Whenever her singing voice is found, my soul is purified. Where is she? Where is she...? 赤く染まる 月の雫 涙 空 私には声にならない程深く and so for you・・・居続け愛した人よ 繰り返して心が凍てついてく I love you ...

Do you know the reason why she's gone? Has she led to the bright red world? How can I also go to the world? Her singing voice is heard. Whenever her singing voice is found, my soul is purified. Where is she? Where is she...?

Song Production Information
This song, CaptivAte〜浄化〜, is based around the concept of following your heart until the very end. It ended up as a pretty raw mix with piano in the first half and synth in the second that brought out that sort of atmosphere of not-quite weakness very well. The lyrics start out with "Akaku somaru tsuki no shizuku namida sora ... "; the very important idea that lurks behind each of these seemingly unrelated phrases is "emotion". Please look forward to gradually brighter "CaptivAte"s.
Video Production Information
This is DJ Yoshitaka's popular song. The ending song of the last version of the game was still fresh in everyone's mind during the location test, and it gave rise to this song.
I really like the part that goes "Akaku somaru ... ". Somehow it really conveys the feeling of delicateness you get standing in front of a piece of glass before it's broken. If it's broken, it can be brought back ... I suppose. I listened to this song over and over during production.
