Sheena Ringo’s “Saihatega Mitai” has been selected as the theme song for the animated feature-length film ‘Miss Hokusai’ to be released nationwide on Saturday, May 9.
‘Miss Hokusai’ is an animated film adaptation of Hinako Sugiura’s masterpiece ‘Sarusuberi’ directed by Keiichi Hara, who asked Sheena Ringo to supply the theme song for the film because Ms. Sugiura had been a great fan of her music. Sheena Ringo was happy to accept the offer and re-covered a song she had written previously for Sayuri Ishikawa, “Saihatega Mitai,” due to its affinity with the film’s mood and vision. The new version of the song adorns the film’s climatic scenes.
“Saihatega Mitai” will be available worldwide as a digital release on Wednesday, May 13. You can also purchase it at Tower Records in the form of an Uta Code® which comes with a special “jacket” towel. We hope you enjoy it!
