[Riria. (Uta role / ending theme song)]

At first I heard that it was a theme song, so I want to do it! I answered immediately. After that, listening to the story of the role of the heroine, I am a voice actor !? I can’t do it! Feelings and fun! I wanna try! It was a big fuss because the feelings came and went. It wasn’t until the role of the heroine was decided that I learned that it was such a grand project.
When I read the script for the first time, I cried because it was too linked to my feelings. It was my first dubbing because I was able to empathize with Uta so much that I could still remember and cry, but at that time I feel that Uta was in my heart.

“Tetsuro Araki x Gen Urobuchi x Takeshi Obata x Hiroyuki Sawano”
I am deeply moved to be together with a song in a space where my liking is gathered. I feel that the song “Bubble” that I wrote this time for this pure, gentle, and immersive work has taken me to a place I have never seen before.
A magnificent and beautiful view of the world, action to keep an eye on, and unique characters. I am happy to be involved in this work with a lot of energy. Please experience it at the theater. Parkour is cool!

・ Riria. About Mr.
I was introduced as the person in charge of the ending theme song, but the voice and soft mood of the person himself was comfortable, and that was exactly what I was looking for in the character Uta, the heroine, so I asked for a voice. ..
If you ask me, you’ll understand, but I think you’ll be surprised at the fairy-like presence that seems to be somewhere and nowhere else. And above all, the ending song makes the movie dozens of times more satisfying. If you ask me, it’s a story that everyone thinks so, and it’s a story that I don’t need to bother to say, so I’d like you to hear it as soon as possible!

・ About Eve
Originally, I used the music video of Eve’s “Bokuramadaunderground” as a reference for the main video (a wonderful song and video. Must-see!), And I’ve been showing live performances for some time, so please work. Even though it was too luxurious to do, there was even a part that felt “inevitable” when it was decided. In the first place, the world that Eve expresses was the goal I should express this time.
I think it’s probably like jumping lightly, slipping through while taking on the weight and melancholy of the world. At the beginning of the movie, everyone will listen to such a fast-paced opening song. Once you’ve listened to it, you can’t stop watching it anymore!

[Genki Kawamura (producer)]
I heard rumors that there is a great singer. I downloaded the TikTok app for the first time, and there, Riria. I met Mr.
A wonderful voice and musical sensation delivered from her room with a single acoustic guitar. I felt like I had witnessed the appearance of a new era of artists.
Suddenly, she overlapped with the heroine Uta of this work “Bubble”. An unknown existence that has not yet emerged from the room, its innocent voice.
She thought it would be interesting to have her sing the ending song and also have the heroine’s voice. Director Tetsuro Araki also took the bet.
A heroine named Uta appears in front of the main character, Hibiki, like a baby, and she gradually gains various emotions as a human being. Riria, the growth process of Uta as it is. I asked him to expect that he would embody it. Riria. Mr. had the courage to accept it. She played Uta very hard. I am convinced that the movie has been completed and the bet has been a great success. Her voice in the last scene should remain in the audience’s ears forever.
