"Kamen/Mirai Kōkai" is Tackey & Tsubasa's fifth single under the Avex Trax label.

Overview[edit]

The first a-side song "Kamen" was used as the theme song for the Japanese version of the movie Mask 2. The other a-side song "Mirai Kōkai" was used as the ending theme song for the anime One Piece.

Sample of Kamen's translated lyrics:

I'll be a flower of the summer flames
Putting on a golden, golden mask
Taking in the sun straightforwardly
With dazzling eyes, dazzling eyes, and passion that stabs the sky
Someday, I'll be the sky
So that I can bluely, bluely dissolve
If I continue to believe in a new world, in my heart, in my heart
The lies, sadness, and clouds will clear away[1]
