Song Production Info
Since I'm Byakko, the White Tiger, tried to produce something
that evokes images of a snowy Japanese panorama.
Actually, I've recently noticed the "enka" genre.
I love how enka evokes particularly Japanese aesthetics and feelings.
Video Production Info
Flashy and brilliant and brimming over with power, truly this is Byakko.
The Japanese-style melody that gets stuck in your head easily is really nice.
It's beautiful and charming, but it's very valiant.
Byakko and the man riding him build up a nightmarish mountain of corpses on the battlefield;
This is the sort of bellicose dance I tried to draw.
