色づく季節(とき)は 幾度巡っても変わることなく
過ぎ去る日々に 置いてきた夢を取り戻すの

人はそう 夢を描くために

明日へ歩き出す 一歩を信じて
迷ってもつまづいても 止まれないから
昨日の涙には 嘘などないから
見つけた答え 輝くよ

無邪気な翼が 傷付いた時は
優しく撫でてく風になるよ 僕が

動いた窓の向こう 君が遠ざかってく
溢れては込み上げる 消せない想い
どんなに離れても この声届けるよ



irozuku toki wa ikudo megutte mo kawaru koto naku
sugisaru hibi ni oitekita yume wo torimodosu no

hito wa sou yume wo egaku tame ni
onaji basho ni iru koto dekinakute

ashita e arukidasu ippo wo shinjite
mayotte mo tsumazuite mo tomarenaikara
kinou no namida ni wa uso nado naikara
mitsuketa kotae kagayaku yo

mujaki na tsubasa ga kizutsuita toki wa
yasashiku nadeteku kaze ni naru yo boku ga

ugoita mado no mukou kimi ga toozakatteku
afurete wa komiageru kesenai omoi
donnani hanarete mo kono koe todokeru yo
nakushita kotae koko ni aru

Long Version


色づく季節(とき)は 幾度巡っても変わることなく
過ぎ去る日々に 置いてきた夢を取り戻すの

人はそう 夢を描くために

明日へ歩き出す 一歩を信じて
迷ってもつまづいても 止まれないから
昨日の涙には 嘘などないから
見つけた答え 輝くよ

散らばる日常(とき)を 繋ぎ合わせても埋まることなく
偽る日々に 笑顔の行方を探し出すの

人はそう 前へ進むために

未来(あした)へ続く道 自分を信じて
戸惑っても見失っても 止まらないから
昨日の涙さえ 地図へと変わるから
確かな答え 出会えるよ

無邪気な翼が 傷付いた時は
優しく撫でてく風になるよ 僕が

動いた窓の向こう 君が遠ざかってく
溢れては込み上げる 消せない想い
どんなに離れても この声届けるよ
止まってた 針はまた動き出してく
昨日の涙には 嘘などないから
見つけた答え 輝くよ

Song Production Information

Kanako Hoshino

Hey, everyone, it's been a while, it's me Kanako Hoshino ☆ (^ ^) ★.
After 未来のプリズム, written by ikutaMachine, I have another chance to sing a song written by them!!!

Since the last theme's main color was "blue", I had an image like that in mind....
But when we were working on the new song Answer, we found out that the new theme's main color was "red" w (° o °) w.
So, for the movie, ☆ikutaMachine gave me a long red dress to wear.

I wanted to write the lyrics for song as a farewell gift for a friend who was leaving on a long journey.
My favorite part of the lyrics were using the ideas of "tears" and "sadness" in the chorus, making them into something I liked.
Perhaps it was easy for me to put down these feelings since I can be a crybaby sometimes. (^_^;)

For the first time in a movie, I Hoshino actually get to perform an action scene (° - °).
Before shooting for the movie, I was taught how to punch and kick the attacking enemy actors!
I was also taught how to dodge blows and anticipate attacks, which at the end everyone said that they were impressed with. (T_T)
I have always admired strong women, and in this movie, I am shown defeating several enemies attacking me in sequence, and eventually confronting the mysterious boss S!
I might have taken the role too seriously, as some people reacted anxiously around me during the shoot! (laughs)

To tell the truth, the fight with the final enemy boss wasn't that much... if you really noticed in the movie. (laughs)
But there were a lot of other people that worked in the movie as well.
To all the actors, cameramen, the director, everyone on the staff, and anyone else that was on the set, I thank you. m (__) m

I tried playing the song on SP Normal at the test location and I didn't do that well, but I've played a lot more since then, and I think I could play the hyper version of this ★. (laughs)
While listening to music, playing a game, or watching a movie, I'll think about whatever I am doing has an answer. o(^-^)o


ikutaMachine here.
This is the second time we have collaborated with Hoshino, after 未来のプリズム.

In producing Answer, we aimed towards making a song that emphasized the best singing qualities of Kanako Hoshino.

What did you think? If you like it, then please enjoy playing it!!!

Video Production Information

Masashi Komino

For this movie, I wanted to portray the concept of a "cool adult woman."

When I first got the theme for this style, the idea of having Hoshino being an action star first appeared in my mind.
I really have wanted to take the challenge of directing an action-packed scene, so when the opportunity came up, I embraced it with all my heart's content.

I hope that this will increase Hoshino's appeal.
