UNISON SQUARE GARDEN’s Silent Libre Mirage will be the theme song for the live-action TV drama adaptation of Tatsuya Kiuchi’s Dansui! The song is used in the background of the new promotional video.
Tomoya Tabuchi, the bass guitarist of UNISON SQUARE GARDEN, wrote the song after reading the original work. The song expresses the feeling of being under the silent water. Kousuke Saitou, the vocalist/guitarist of the band commented, ‘Everyone involved in the making of the TV drama Dansui! is working very hard to entertain the viewers, and I love their devotion.’ He also added, ‘We sang and played our song with all our hearts to take part in entertaining the viewers.’
In the 90-second promotional video, the swimming club members are swimming with energy. You might mistake the actors for professional swimmers, but the truth is that they trained hard for two months before shooting the scenes!
The TV drama Dansui! will be broadcast at 24:55 every Saturday (00:55 Sunday morning) starting from January 21 on Nippon TV, and at 25:29 every Tuesday (01:59 Wednesday morning) starting from January 24 on Yomiuri TV. Ryou Matsuda is going to play the protagonist Shuuhei Sakaki, with the rest of the cast being Shuuto Miyazaki, Shintarou Anzai, Tomoru Akazawa, Hisanori Satou, Ren Ozawa, Mario Kuroba, and Ryousuke Ikeoka.
In addition, it has also been announced that Dansui! is to be adapted into a live-stage performance in May 2017.
