“Magical Sempai is a lively and kind of pervy comedy anime, so we wanted to give listeners a fun, sorta sexy feel from the song, too. acane_madder, who worked on the Walküre song “Dancing in the Moonlight”, wrote the lyrics for this song. I think she managed to capture the world of the anime while also sprinkling a bit of my style into the song.”
“For anime collaboration songs, I often sing like I’m acting, but Dame wa Dame pushed that aspect so much more than usual, to the point where I was left physically exhausted. [laughter] For example, the part where I say, ‘Chira chira chira chira,’ I was told to sing the last one in a sexy way like, ‘Chiraaan.’ acane, Katsutoshi, and the director were all there during recording, and they were obsessive about getting every little detail right. acane is also a singer, so she’d actually sing a part for me and say, ‘If you sing like this, it’ll show off Minoringo’s cute appeal.’ The recording session was filled with non-stop laughter.”
