After releasing the music video for the opening theme song "Kizuna No Kiseki" (Miracle of Bonds) for the newest arc of the Demon Slayer series, singer-songwriter milet has now published a music video for the opening theme song "Koikogare" (Deeply in Love). This song serves as the opening theme for the Kimetsu no Yaiba Swordsmith Village Arc.
Since the second episode of the most recent story arc of the anime aired in Japan on April 16, this additional special cooperation song with the Japanese rock band MAN WITH A MISSION has been used in the anime. The music video was recorded very early in the morning in order to capture the morning light, which was chosen to represent the concept of "morning glow," which was inspired by a lyric from the song.

"I embrace the joy of being able to overlap the sound of this song written by Yuki Kajiura-san, along with MAN WITH A MISSION-san. Please receive this song of the morning glow color that illuminates your way of life. Please watch this MV a lot!" The CD including both songs will be available on May 31.
