Dogasu's Backpack | Movies & Specials Guide | Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution

The ending theme for Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, in theaters Friday, July 12th, has been decided! The song will be Kaze to Issho ni and it'll be a collaboration between Sachiko Kobayashi (小林幸子) and Shoko Nakagawa (中川翔子) with Seiji Kameda (亀田誠治) handling the arrangement!

Kaze to Issho ni

To commemorate the very first film Pocket Monsters the Movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back!" Ms. Sachiko Kobayashi, who performed that film's theme song Kaze to Issho ni as well, will be joined in the studio by Ms. Shoko Nakagawa to perform a fresh version that's been arranged by Mr. Seiji Kameda. The single will be released on July 10th.

In the original Kaze to Issho ni, Ms. Sachiko Kobayashi was joined by a group of children referred to as the "Pokemon Kids." To decide who the Pokemon Kids will be for the 2019 version, an open casting call is being held in April 2019. Those who are chosen will get to join in on the recording of Kaze to Issho ni the following month and have their song featured in the movie!

『風といっしょに』という素敵な曲に出会って21 年。
時を経て、また素晴らしいポケモンの世界を、こ の歌で表現出来る事にとても幸せを感じています。
子供の頃に聞いてくれて大人になった人たち、そ して今の子供たちが、優しい気持ちになってくれるように心を込めて歌いました。
幅広い世代の皆さんに、あの感動をまた感じて頂 けたら嬉しいです。
It's been 21 years since I got to work on the fantastic Kaze to Issho ni. A lot of time has passed since then and yet to still be able to use this song to express how amazing the world of Pokemon is makes me feel oh so very happy. I put all my heart into this song so that both the kids who heard the original and grew up to be adults as well as those who are still kids right now will feel nice, happy feelings. I hope people of all ages can feel those feelings again.

子供だった21年前に出会えたポケモン映画。大人 になってからも思い出と手を繋いで歩いてきました。今度は、いまと未来の子供たちに歌を繋いで届けられるなんて、ポケモンがくれた”夢よりすごい奇跡”! 憧れの小林幸子さんの歌声といっしょに、愛をこめて歌いました。そして、時代を超えて歌い継がれるこの曲を、ポケモンが好きな子供たちと一緒に歌えること を楽しみにしています。
I was a little kid 21 years ago when I first crossed paths with the Pokemon movies. And now, even as an adult, I'm going forward with those memories close to my heart. For this year's movie, the fact that this song lets us reach children of both the present and the future is all thanks to the "miracle even more incredible than a dream" that Pokemon has given us! Alongside Ms. Sachiko Kobayashi, who I absolutely adore, I put all my love into singing this song. I'm also looking forward to singing this generation-spanning song with all the children who love Pokemon.
