‘Sarracenia -Anime Size-’ is themed on the anime’s fist-fighting father Yuujiro Hanma, featuring lyrics from the viewpoint of a strong fighter, a rap and vocal track that overflows with skilful expressive power, and an aggressive track with dramatic twists and turns. These three elements combine to create a song brimming with emotion.
Meanwhile, ‘Salvia -Anime Size-’ is based on the son, Baki Hanma, and features lyrics and music written by SKY-HI with the theme of longing to find strength, sung and rapped by the seven individually unique members of BE:FIRST over a melancholy but edgy track – again combining three elements of perfect chemistry into one amazing song.
