MISIA will be providing the theme song to the upcoming live action "Fullmetal Alchemist" film.
The new song is titled "Kimi no Soba ni Iru yo". The song was written specifically for the movie, and took inspiration from the relationship between brothers Ed and Al.
"The theme song enhances mood of the movie and its world view. I had heard that MISIA was a big fan of the original series, and I'm certain this connection is genuine," Fumihiko Sori, the film's director, said.
"Kimi no Soba ni Iru yo" will be released on November 29 as MISIA's 40th single. The live action "Fullmetal Alchemist" movie will be released on December 1.
