Artist Comment

Hello to everyone on the Twin Angel site! This is a.k.a.dRESS from ave;new. As for a quick introduction - I'm responsible for the composition and arrangement of music in the Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel series.. although I am normally credited as 'Dorechu'.

My first meeting with the Twin Angel brand was back when I had created ave;new project as a sister brand to my main brand ave;new. I created the sister brand as a brand that focuses on 'moe' and cuter music when compared to ave;new. At the time it was a kind of half-serious, half-joke brand, but at that time Sammy came up to me and asked if I would write the theme song to their pachinko slot machine game.

At that time, Twin Angel obviously wasn't an anime series, but the quality that went into the animation on the machines was the real deal. I was really impressed, and decided that I had to write a suitably impressive song. I actually first heard about the Twin Angel series when the visuals were still being written, and the voice actors were all still under consideration - which of course means that ave;new has been involved with the series right from the onset! That's why working on the TV anime now is a really special project for me.

I'm fairly certain that my long involvement with the series gives me a good advantage when composing songs, but at the same time it puts some pressure on. Even when I know I want to make a bright happy song filled with energy, things don't always go right at first.

Often when working with Twin Angel, a question like 'it's a pretty unique series, what kind of music shall we use?" will come up. I'm always so glad to hear the decision of "just leave that to dRESS." It's proof that I'm trusted, and although that might lead to even more pressure, it has also leads to great things happenings - things like the titles of my songs like 'Lovely ☆ Angel' becoming the lines the characters use to transform - when things like that happen, I resolve myself to never be careless with my work.

Another title 'Let's Go Fever Time!" has also become a common thing to say at parties, and the reason for that is simply because I once casually shouted it out while I was in front of a mike. It makes me wonder what would have happened if I had named the song differently... I'm fairly certain I was considering 'A☆B☆C☆D☆E Fever!!' or something like that at one stage...

There are a few themes that go along with Twin Angel theme songs - they need to have an easy to remember, cute and exiting melody, a kind of 'picopico' sound is always included, the characters names will always be found in the lyrics and of course a fun-loving attitude is a must. This time around I'm working on the opening theme to the anime series, the song is called - 'Onnanoko tte ♪ Maji ☆ Chou Angel!!', which is sung as a duet between Saori Sakura, who is also doing the voice of Tenshi-chan in the anime, and Rie Shirasawa. It's quite a unique song for ave;new project - it has a very high-tension and upbeat tempo to it.

I'm sure there will be quite a few people who are new to the world of Twin Angel and its characters, and I'm sure there will be many loyal fans watching as well - either way I'm certain that everyone who watches the series will have a great time. What I wanted to create in terms of music, was something suitable for a TV anime of Twin Angel - something that really incorporated the concept of 'anime' in the music.

I tried to visualize all the characters - the Angels, Phantoms and all the other lovable characters all growing up and rising towards the clouds. As if they had each grown wings of Angels and taken off with them! I hope you'll get that same feeling while listening to the song. The theme of the song is 'growth', and I'm certain it will lead to growth for ave;new, ave;new project and Dorechu!

I'm glad to be working with the Twin Angel Staff, as well as with all you fans of the series - I hope you'll continue to support for the series for as long as possible! I've got many more ideas for the future of Twin Angel, and I aim to create more and more songs for those who love to listen to them!
