Comment from Omoinotake:
Hi, we are Omoinotake, who have created the opening theme song of the TV anime “Blue
Period”. We are so honored to be involved in this amazing work which is full of emotions
including both the pain and the amazingness of creating things. The truth is we thought that
we didn’t have any particular talents in the beginning. Then we kept trying to find our way for
many years. Then finally we found our place. It is actually the same location as in the “Blue
Period”, which is a live performance we did on the street in Shibuya.
“Doing what I love doesn’t mean that I am always having fun”, the words of Yatora reminds
us of how we are and we made a song with the words which were split from our feeling and
melody. Until today we have continued working on our band for the last 9 years and we just
simply ‘love music’ just like Yatora who ‘loves drawing’. We finished creating the world of
‘EVERBLUE’ as the opening theme song of “Blue Period”. Complex, conflict, not going well
at the beginning when you start doing something and suffering, we put all of these feelings
into this song. We hope many people put themselves into this song and think about the
wishes of people who just started their challenges.
The music video of ‘EVERBLUE’ has also been released on YouTube and is gaining

We can’t take our eyes off this band, and are so excited for their future success!

TV animation “Blue Period”
Yatora Yaguchi who is in his second year of high school has been enjoying his everyday life
playing with his friends. He studies well and is good at dealing with things smoothly.
Everyone wants to live the best possible life… and Yatora himself has been always feeling
empty inside himself somehow.
One day Yatora was totally captured by a painting in an art room.
Yatora found that he was able to express his feelings honestly for the first time.
He discovered the joy of art and he started to draw in his sketchbooks on impulse.
And finally Yatora decided on his college choice for art school.
The competitive ratio for the art school is 200x.
It’s only 650 days till the entrance exam!
