"SOLIDEMO" is a dynamic eight-member vocal group who aim to expand their career throughout Asia. In addition to the release of their new song "Kotoba no Kakera" on Wednesday 15th July, they have been uploading cover songs on YouTube and involving in other online activities recently, gaining many attention on social media by their beautiful voices. This time, we have done an email interview with one of the members, Mukaiyama Takeshi, who is also the Tourism Ambassador of his birthplace, Kitakyushu City (Fukuoka Prefecture)!

I hope that people who listen to this song would realize the importance of meeting and talking to people in person.

ab: Can you tell us about the new song "Kotoba no Kakera" which was released in July?

It's about not being able to meet someone that you miss, and that leads to the current situation. I hope that people who listen to this song would realize the importance of meeting and talking to people in person.

ab: Since the song has a message about an unsaid "Thank you", is there any member in your group whom you're very grateful to, but haven't got the chance to tell him about your feelings? What would you say to him?

...I think it'll be Akito. He's the youngest among us but he is always aware of the changes within the members, and also listens to me a lot. So I'll take this chance to say "thank you for always being there for me!"

ab: We learned that you've been doing online live shows since June.

We really appreciate that even though being in such a hard time, we're able to do live shows online. We're very grateful to all of the staff and the viewers! But still, it feels lonely without seeing the lovely Collars' (*SOLIDEMO's fans) cheering and happy faces. Now I realized how great it is to have audience responding to you while doing live!

ab: In the new Sanrio TV show "Fun Fun Kitty!" that started from April this year, you co-starred with Hello Kitty and many other internationally popular Sanrio characters. Please tell us your thoughts about joining the Sanrio world!

Actually I was very stressed and worried at first, but thanks to the support of the staff and many Sanrio fans, I'm enjoying it very much now!
