It was announced that EXILE THE SECOND's song
"Hinoboru Hikari ni ~Pray for Now~"

has been chosen as the first cheer song for judo
to give a boost to 2020 Tokyo Olympics and 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

Kosei Inoue,
the head coach of the national men's judo team,
and KEIJI are both from Miyazaki Prefecture.

They became friends after their conversation in THE NINE WORLDS corner of GEKKAN EXILE.

We paid a visit to the training camp of Japanese national judo team right before the Rio Olympics.
We showed our support to the Japanese national team and deepened our friendship, thus we got the opportunity to sing the cheer song.

On the first day of
our final show,
Kosei Inoue, the head coach of the national men's judo team,
and the 6 Rio Olympics medalists
Ryunosuke Haga,
Naohisa Takato,
Shohei Ono,
Masashi Ebinuma,
Haruka Tachimoto
and Misato Nakamura

appeared on stage
as special guests
and

performed with
EXILE THE SECOND!

And we also sang
the All-Japan Judo Federation cheer song
"Hinoboru Hikari ni ~Pray for Now~"!

To warm up for
2020 Tokyo Olympics
and 2020 Tokyo Paralympics,

we will do what we can
to give a boost to
Japanese judo
and cheer for Japanese judo
with all our strength!

I want to thank the All-Japan Judo Federation
for providing such valuable experience!


Moreover,
I want to thank
the special guests
who made the live show more exciting.
DOBERMAN INFINITY and
RAGPOUND led by Mandy, Reo and Twiggz fam,
thank you
from the bottom of my heart!

Tomorrow is the final day...
I will go all out
to present a fantastic final show
and welcome
a new start!

I would like to
express my heartfelt thanks
to our fans for coming to Makuhari Messe
on a weekday!
