I created a song that, for me, was talking about the enrichment process. I don’t know if I really mean what I say, even though I feel like I’m going crazy. But I want to be thrilled. I’ve been empowered by the unyielding spirit to do this song. Thank you for your patronage,” said group member ACA.

I think I myself have a spirituality close to Denji at that time. Also, he added, “When I was put in charge of the music for Chainsaw Man, I thought about the kind of music I would make if I were Denji. I thought maybe he was going to scream his emotions. As a result, I think such a song was over.
