Secret Ambition is the fifteenth single from Japanese songstress Nana Mizuki. Secret Ambition saw a massive change in Nana Mizuki's music style, dramatically changing from pop and powerpop to an explosive rock sound.[1][2]

Secret Ambition was the first opening theme for the anime Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS and the B-side, "Heart-Shaped Chant" was the theme song for PS2 game Shining Wind). It is currently her second best-selling single.

Music video[edit]

The dark ego in Nana Mizuki's PV for Secret Ambition

The music video of "Secret Ambition" starts off with a scene showing what a white room with a floor covered in looks like a white tea set of china ware. The video features two Nana egos - a "dark" one, and an "innocent" one. The dark one is singing on a stage in dark-coloured clothes, with a dark background and a backing band consisting of guitar and drum players who are also dressed in black or dark colours. The "innocent" one sits crouched in the white room with the cups, in white clothes.
