Could you give us any comment about the latest collaboration with Gran Rodeo in Nanatsu no Taizai anime?
Keigo: For us, we really happy that we could worked together with two members from Gran Rodeo. Previously, in some Anime Live Event, we’ve already performed together with them and often have some talks also. For me, personally, Kishou-san and Izuka-san brought a good atmosphere so we never get nervous or something like that, I’ve ever think about could we make an original collaboration someday in the future? And finally that’s answered, we got offering to this Nanatsu no Taizai Project together, and I’m very excited about this!


Talking about Anime Sountracks and Anisong, do you have any favorite anime?
Take: Of course Nanatsu no Taizai!! Hahaha.. Just kidding.. Basically I like Shonen Jump anime from my generation, Like Saint Seiya, Dragon Ball, or Slamdunk..
Koshi: Lately I’m watching Nanatsu no Taizai for sure.. But I also like Gogure Kokuri-san, very interesting story.. It’s mermaid! Mermaid!!
Keigo: Nearly same with Take, because we born in same generation.. Anyway among anime we performed, I choose Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouche..
Goto: Uchuu no Kyoudai or Space Brothers.. I wanna go to outer space like shuujinkou in that anime LOL
Iwasaki: Gundam! I’m watching gundam for 15 years.. I also like Detective Conan and Naruto


Your first Anisong Debut is Naruto’s Opening Sountrack titled “GO!” right? I think it was one of best hit ever. How do you feel about Naruto’s ending in manga?
Take: As the first Anime we sung.. As the starting point before we could sing a lot song for another anime.. As one of the famous anime in the world, we really often see overseas fans cosplaying Naruto in anime event, also.. As one of Shonen Jump’s masterpiece.. We felt kinda sad and couldn’t believe it at first. Anyway thanks to Naruto we could go overseas to promote our single.
