“The path of the bow, the search for “self” continues. There is their story. The more I think of them, the more my heart is stained with hatred. The more you seek, the more colors you lose. To continue being myself, I struggle to keep going. I keep staring at the things I love, doubting and believing every day. Now, let’s walk on this road. Leads to the “me” of the future.” – Tsurune introduction, via official website.
