A comment by Toyonaga was shared on his official website:

Everyone, thank you for your patience. It’s been over a year since I announced the production of my new album.

When I thought about something that is uniquely mine and something that only I can do, I came up with the concept of an answer song collection dedicated to the many characters I’ve portrayed.

As I wrote all the songs from scratch this time, I reread the scripts, and it felt like rereading my graduation album.

Although this album is titled as a 10th-anniversary album, I don’t personally feel like it’s been 10 years. This is the first time I’ve written and composed all the songs for a full album since “MUSIC OF THE ENTERTAINMENT” (2014).

I hope that those who have been supporting me for a long time can enjoy the changes of the past 10 years, and I also hope that fans of the characters will enjoy it.

I hope this album will be an opportunity for you to discover characters you didn’t know before and encounter new works. Please give it a listen! Thank you very much.

Charactanswer” is available for purchase at CDJAPAN. You can also find this CD available at Amazon Japan (they ship internationally).
