Probably Fuyu/Haru
or maybe all four seasons...?

I think it takes 5 songs to make a mini album so it would still be a single.

*prepares for another release with yui in hikikomori mode*

It wouldn't make sense to release natsu/aki as digital and fuyu/haru as physical.

Somehow I missed this...

One mini album with the all 4 seasons would be awesome
I wish they would do that! Wouldn't it be nice? Cocco has done that once. She's released a mini-album with 4 songs, one for each season.
I'd want that too... I like Natsu, but I seriously love Aki. The overall feeling of that song has caught me by surprise, it's been a long time a song doesn't make me feel like that!
I love "Mi", and a lot of good things have been released this year, but I still think "Aki" is the best song of 2014! It gives me this weird feeling everytime I listen to it... I immediatelly feel like closing my eyes, and it relaxes me, while also making my heart beat faster. Such emotion...! ><
It's like feeling sorrow and being comforted at the same time... But also getting excited, like when you're about to go on a trip. There's also the fact the lyrics are very simple (as in: simple words, easy to understand) and understanding a bit of them while listening to it helps a bit.
...I know I'm probably not making any sense, but it's 5am and I still haven't slept, so...... don't mind me

CD Japan are still saying the DVD contents might change and it remains untitled.

yui's comment about shiki...kinda super long this time  :scream:

映画「リトル・フォレスト」の主題歌を担当したFLOWER FLOWERより、yuiのコメントが到着した。
美しくも厳しい自然の情景、旬の素材を使った料理。生きるために食べ、食べるために作る。すべてがひと繋がりになった暮らしを描いた「リトル・フォレスト」。約1年間に渡って岩手県でオール・ロケを敢行した春夏秋冬の4部作がついに完結する。
「月刊アフタヌーン」に連載された五十嵐大介の原作コミックは、実際に原作者が岩手県の山村で3年を過ごした実体験を基にして描かれており、映画の撮影も、原作の舞台と同じ奥州市衣川区で行われた。2013年6月から2014年6月まで、約1年間に渡るオール・ロケによって、四季の移ろいで様々な表情を見せる自然と美しい里山の風景が、じっくりと時間をかけて映しとられている。
また、その土地ならではの旬の食材を使って作る食事は、野村友里が主宰する「eatrip」がフード・ディレクションを担当。素朴さのなかにも工夫が凝らされた料理の数々は観るだけでお腹が空いてくることうけあいだ。
この度、映画4部作それぞれの主題歌「夏」「秋」「冬」「春」を担当したFLOWER FLOWERより、yuiから作品全体や主人公いち子の生き方について感じたこと、また曲作りへの熱い想いなど、コメントが届いている。

yuiからのコメント
A comment from yui

完成した作品を初めて観たとき、単純に美しいなと思いました。
自然の美しさと厳しさ、人間の強さと弱さ、相反するもののようでいて一体のような。言葉で表現するには難しいなと感じています。でも映像や音はそのままの形で頭の中に入ってきて何かを感じることができる、そんな素敵な作品の音楽に携わることができて本当に嬉しく思います。とにかく観て、聞いて、感じてほしい映画です。
The first time I watched the completed movie , I simply thought it was beautiful.
The beauty and severity of nature, the strength and the weakness of the human being, which seem to contradict each other, but at the same time, they seem to be unified.
I felt it was difficult to put into words. But I started feeling something as I let the images and sounds get into my head. I'm really glad to participate with our music in this fantastic movie.

原作となったリトル・フォレストも映像になったリトル・フォレストも、どちらも大好きです。あたたかくて優しい、けどそっと背中を押してくれるような力強さも持っている。いちファンとしても、これからの人生にもっと豊かさと想像力と尊さをプラスしてくれる素晴らしい作品に、皆さんもぜひ触れてほしいなと思います。
I love both Little Forests, the original manga and this movie. It's warm and gentle. But it gives me strength as if it pushes my back forward. As a fan, I think this wonderful movie gives a little more abundancy and power of imagination to the life ahead of us, so please I wish you to experience this too.


作品の中に出てくるテーマを色々と考えてみました。
食、生活、人間関係、成長、自然、愛、葛藤、命、伝統、自分の気持ち、疑問、真実、知恵。
主人公のいち子は最初悩んでいるように見えました。
壁にぶつかり、乗り越えられたり乗り越えられなかったり。
そして周りの人たちの言葉。突き刺さり突き付けられながらもがいたり。
I put a lot of thought into the themes that came out of the movie.
Food, daily living, human relations, grow to adulthood, nature, love, conflicts, life itself, traditions, your own feelings, doubt, reality, wisdom...
In the beginning, Ichiko, the protagonist, seemed worried to me.
Being stopped by a barrier. Sometimes going over it. Others not being able to. And struggling while confronted by people around her whose words were thrusting in.


それって、まさに生きる、生きている、そのものなんだなぁと。
空気を吸って吐いているということと同じくらい自然で、あまりにも当たり前過ぎて気付かないけど、とても大切でかけがえのないこと、そんな物語なのかなと思います。
I felt that's exactly how one lives, how one is living.
It's as natural as inhaling and exhaling air, and it's too natural to notice, but it's very important and indispensable. I think this may be such a story.

誰もが感じたことがあるだろう、なぜ生きているのか? 何がしたいのか?
その答えは人それぞれ。この作品には、そんなそれぞれの答えが映し出されているように感じ、観終わった頃には、自分も大きな一歩を踏み出せた感覚になりました。感じ方は人それぞれですが、何かが残るその感じを味わってみてほしいと思います。
I felt, in this work, such individual answers were reflected, and when I finished watching, I had a feeling that I also took a big step.
Although the way of feeling varies among individuals, I would like you to taste the very feeling of something that remains.

そして、曲作りですが、原作を何度も読み返しメンバーと話し合い、セッションを重ねて作っていきました。
大抵、話し合いっていうのはセッションに含まれていて、誰かが音でメッセージを出すと皆が共鳴するような感じです。目をつぶって、映像を思い浮かべて音を出す。息が合ってないと成立しないことだと思います。だから、皆のイメージが共鳴し合って、ちゃんと音になったことに感謝です。エンジニアのuniさんも世界観を作ってくれた方です。コップに金属が当たる音、自然を彷彿させる奥行き感、季節の色使い。そして、壮大さと色を足してくれたストリングス。全曲、作品に合わせて雰囲気が変わっていきます。その移ろいゆく空気感も感じてもらえたらと思います。
And regarding the making of the songs, we read the original work over and over again, discussed with other members in repeated sessions.
Usually, the discussion is part of sessions. It's like someone sends a message with their sound, and all of us resonate with it.
Closing eyes, calling the images to mind and emit a sound. I think it won't work unless we all get along.
Therefore, I'm grateful that the images of all of us resonated with each other, making sounds properly.
The engineer, Uni-san also contributed to making the world view.
The sound of hitting the metal on the glass, the perspective which is reminiscent of nature, the coloring of the seasons. And the strings which added magnificence and colors.
The atmosphere of the whole work changes with each song.
I hope you will feel the moving atmosphere too.

最後に歌詞ですが、いち子の気持ちを考えて、弱さと葛藤、そしてほんの少しの勇気を意識して入れてみました。
気持ちの微妙な変化を感じながらも、大きな意味でとれる言葉を選んでみたり。
そして、全曲に「進み続けて行く」というきっぱりとした覚悟を込めています。
Finally, regarding the lyrics, considering the state of mind of Ichiko, I intentionally tried to put the weakness, the conflict and a small amount of courage.
While sensing the subtle changes of her state of mind, I tried to choose words with broad meanings.
And I put a firm resolution of "keep going" in all the songs.


美しい命の物語、ぜひ曲の空気感も感じながら観てください!
The story of beautiful life, please watch it, feeling the atmosphere of the songs as well !
yui
