And it is currently on air. It is produced by BONES, a company famous for producing high-quality anime such as “Fullmetal Alchemist” and “Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven”, and has been getting a lot of attention overseas. LMYK produced both Japanese and English versions of the song for this anime.

It is an elegant and gothic soundscape that beautifully adorns the steampunk world of 19th century Paris.

Her new song is also produced by Jimmy jam & Terry Lewis, one of the world’s leading producer teams. LMYK’s signature whispering voice is used as orchestration, and their production work visualizes the sound as if it were a garden in bloom.
