2. Just the Kind of Thought
3. Anata ga Koko ni Iru Riyuu – Instrumental

This is Rie fu’s 9th single and it was released on October 24, 2007. The single reached #45 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 2,565 copies. The title track was used as the 5th ending theme song for the anime D.Gray-man.

Why does Rie fu always release consistently beautiful music? XDD
Anata ga Koko ni Iru Riyuu is similar to her song Tsukiakari, but uses new elements like gentle, but always present electric guitar chords. These chords really give the song a unique, almost alternative sound compared to her past works. The string arrangement is just plain gorgeous and it feels so epic. Her vocals are also at their best, especially during the chorus.

The B-side the upbeat and spunky Just the Kind of Thought. The song is in English and it has really playful, optimistic lyrics. Rie fu’s vocal style is a little messy and rushed at times, but they actually give the song some substance and personality. The music is the same too, but it’s still very fun nonetheless.
