This is the story
The legend of glory
The truthful story of the brave...

The time has come
We must be there
To help the knight, bring back the light

And came the warning
We must keep moving
Though it may be
To fight our destiny

Away from home, away from our love and family
We must go back, breaking the spell with our hands
(we pray for you, your safe return)

Proud on a steed with our swords to the sky
Over the hills riding through the valley
We'll fight together to free us from terror
A new page is written to guide us through the night

Godspeed the soul

Song Production Information


I composed this song while enduring various pressures from various sources to create a suitable song for the triumph of the BEMANI EXPO C team (I'm lying...)
It was also a memorable occasion for me, as it was my debut in Gitadora, and Nakamura added a touch of flair with his fiery playing.
So enjoy the legend of the magnificent knight!

Kozo Nakamura

I was supposed to co-compose the music this time, but I did not...
I played guitar and bass, although I made it a little easier.
Just for the record, I do have a job!
I had never played a metal song with orchestra or chorus, and I had never played metal guitar outside of my own songs before, so it was very interesting.
"The Legend", Naya~n's Gitadora debut, has a spectacular arrangement, and I hope you enjoy it!

Video Production Information


Sailor Liebe, Voijiy!!
The Legend! It's legendary! Fantastic!
So, it's warrior VS. dragon.

A dragon that can turn a village into that...
Brave warriors against that dragon...
I mean, there's no way I can beat him! (Hakata dialect)
Ugh... poor Kaoru (the warrior's name).
The dragon was a formidable foe after all...

That's the kind of clip I made!
