Producer Kazuyuki Shimizu says he offered Kyary the part because “This drama is about “girl power”. The world sees Kyary Pamyu as an icon of Japanese ‘kawaii’ culture. I thought we would get even more support from women by having her sing the theme song.” The fact that the drama is set in Harajuku / Omotesando was also a determining factor.
This collaboration between Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Yuji Sakamoto, who has also done “SAIKO NO RIKON” and “SOREDEMO IKITEYUKU”, is something that everybody is looking forward to.
