Message from JimmyThumb-P
I was entrusted with creating the music for the TV anime The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses. It was my first time working on an anime soundtrack, so I went through a lot of trial and error, but I am grateful for this meaningful experience. I hope that my music will add something to this story, which expresses the purity and youthfulness of Mie and Komura, and the idea that even small things can be significant experiences for two junior high school students.
