      This is the first song that started the never-ending relationship between Inuyasha and Do As Infinity.

      "Fukai Mori" was recorded about one year before the series was released. Ryo only took about 30 minute to record the acoustic guitar riffs. The guitar riffs at the beginning of the song was timed to perfection and sounded so good, that it's one of DAI's best works, indeed. Try turning the volume of your speaker to the max, and you might even be able to hear Ryo's sexy breaths!

      The "Saiko Kawamura" for this song is Kayoko Shinchi. Ms. Shinchi is a genius lyricist who can write songs spontaneously. She used to help Dai Nagao as the vocalist for his demos. She is able to sing 5 or 6 of Dai's demos a day, and usually she can remember the tune of the demos and come up with the temporary lyrics on the spot! She could repeat this whole process numerous times, too. Among the numerous demo singers around, she was the most outstanding one. However, when she asked to rewrite or make small changes to the lyrics, she's unable to do so! What a incomprehensible character, indeed. She works as a beautician full-time, though.

      She faxed us the lyrics to "Fukai Mori" while we were traveling around the country on tour. Hence, "Fukai Mori" was already created during the stage of recording the demo. Inuyasha's production unit was said to be very surprised upon receiving such a deep and melancholic song from us. Little did they realize that a more heavyweight song called "Shinjitsu no Uta" would be awaiting them in the future. Subsequently, Inuyasha was aired all over the world. During DAI's live performances in the USA in 2004, we were so surprised that the American anime fans were singing along with DAI in Japanese! Ryo commented he was touched beyond words. I felt the same way, too.
