Voice actress Emi Nitta has come back with her first single in 1 year and 2 months! It will be released on 19 April 2017, and the title is Rocket Heart. Emi Nitta voiced the heroine of Love Live!!, Honoka Kousaka. She was able to gather a lot of experience as a singer in 2016 through solo concerts and performances overseas.
Her song this time will not be used in an anime, but is being released as a regular single. She said that Rocket Heart ‘is the song that expresses my thoughts best so far.’
She also gave a heartfelt comment about this new release:
‘My song this time has no sugarcoated words or hidden expressions. But it will strike a chord with people who have experienced what the song is about, and it is not supposed to be about a happy thing. And this single is the one that shows you the true Emi Nitta, just as she is, because my thoughts became my songs. The song Rocket Heart exists only because of the support I get from my fans. On this rocket, we can ride together toward the dream we want to reach, that’s what I want.
You see, I think everybody has something they cannot bear alone and that everybody has many things on their hands. And we need to have strength to walk on and carry that burden. A heavy burden, one that we can’t drop, isn’t necessarily a painful thing. There are people who will help you carry it or those nearby who will say “Let’s do our best!” Because these kind of thoughts will turn into energy, I want to write songs that express such feelings. Of course, sometimes you need to drop your baggage, sit beside it and look into the sunset (note: one of her songs is titled Akatsuki, meaning ‘sunset’) while thinking back on your life and taking a break. And then you can get back up with more energy, with feelings like what Rocket Heart or Shine express, and walk into the future with your baggage. I think that would be best.
For me, Rocket Heart,Shine, and Akatsuki are all connected to me. This single is full of songs that the me right now can sing perfectly, or better, I can sing them because of your support. These three songs were born because of EMUSIC who keep working with me and because of the continuous support of the fans. I want to raise the three songs from now on with everybody together!’
Emi Nitta was able to expand her abilities as an artist, so fans can look forward to her future activities!
