"Enrai: Tooku ni Aru Akari" (遠雷 ~遠くにある明かり~?) is a single released by High and Mighty Color on October 25, 2006.

Overview[edit]

"Enrai: Tooku ni Aru Akari" is the band's eighth single and its last release in 2006. The title track is the third ending theme for the four-part anime feature compilation Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny: Special Edition. The song also appeared in Drummania/GuitarFreaks V4 as a cover, making the song playable on the arcade machine as well as the compilation album Tokyo Rock City.

The B-side "Kaerimichi no Orenji", was used in a commercial for the Wii game Bleach Wii: Hakujin Kirameku Rondo. The first pressings of the single came with a special pin up featuring Gundam character Athrun Zala. The music video for the song was directed by Sueyoshi Nobu.

Sample of the translated lyrics:[1]

We all cease to be connected by dazzling chance meetings, I won't leave you again
Here, we drew our fingertips, which once touched, back toward ourselves
Your overly radiant form, and small whisper
Seem to connect us together and heal us, who are tangled together...
Because I won't pretend to give up
