It is Fairies' first contribution to an anime series and is the opening song for the Studio Comet and Sanrio/Sega Sammy Holdings anime series, Jewelpet Happiness.

Summary[edit]

"Hikari no Hate ni" is Fairies' first contribution to an anime series, first announced and performed during the anime's press conference in Sanrio Puroland.[2] Ito Momoka, one of the members commented that "I’m honored to be able to perform at Sanrio Puroland where I’ve been visited many times." Regarding the theme song, she said, "Our song is bracing just like the anime, and the choreography to the song is cute which people can emulate!"[3]

A short Dance PV of the song was later officially released on YouTube on April 5, 2013. On May 5, the single's release date was confirmed.[4]
