NEWS - Akaku Moyuru Taiyo (2nd single)

Limited edition
This is the last single released for the group in 2004. The month after this Kanjani8 made their debut and Nishikido Ryo and Uchi Hiroki debuted for a second time with that group.

Of course the title track is another song used to promote women's volleyball coverage as the FIVB groups get tied to that quite a bit for their early years.

It features a poem that was written by Yamashita Tomohisa. The song itself is based off another song, The Way Home by Phasio, with the same composers working on this one.

Also of note about this single is that the limited edition of the single has a B-side exclusive to it. This song, DREAMS, is a special one as when the group came back from their hiatus to promote their comeback concert DVD release the performance of this song was used as a promotional video. This was probably because it was a rather emotional performance for the group, Koyama Keiichiro breaks into tears at one point.
