When I first announced the production of this work, I could not believe that I would be able to gather with you all in the same place and share the joy of music as we do today. Now, after almost 3 years of hard work, we are able to create the best sound, content, and all other aspects of the film as a theatrical release.
We are proud to announce that HYDE, SUGIZO, and SixTONES from Japan, and Sarah Brightman, The Chainsmokers, and 10 other world-class artists from overseas have participated in this project.
Please enjoy the best music with these great artists at the movie theaters.
