■ Details about the song
Mafumafu is a singer, songwriter, composer as well as arranges and engineers music, making him a versatile music producer. He has more than 2.9 million subscribers on YouTube.
Nelson Babin-Coy (ネルソン・バビンコイ)
As the only child of a single-mother, Nelson had to learn to be independent at an early age. At 15, he got accepted into a 2-week summer exchange in Japan, an experience that completely changed him. After returning home, he began learning Japanese on his own, eventually getting accepted to UC Berkeley where he majored in East Asian Languages and Cultures. While at Berkeley, he spent a year abroad at Tokyo’s prestigious Keio University and passed the highest level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. He moved back to Japan after graduating from UC Berkeley in 2007 and has since been pursuing a multi-faceted career in the entertainment industry as a bilingual actor, singer-songwriter, producer (working with major Japanese artists like SEKAI NO OWARI), narrator, TV personality, online content creator, and whatever other opportunities happen to fall his way.
Hoshikawa Sara (星川サラ)
A Half-Japanese VTuber from NIJISANJI. Even though she has lived in Virtual England since she was young, as she has spent a long time living in Virtual Japan, she is fluent in Japanese. She is the type of person that gets carried away easily when she’s flattered.

In search for the Heart’s Melody, LazuLight journeys through the present.
Like diamond lights guiding to rainbow skies…
