Information

"-Akai Hana- You're gonna change to the flower" is the 14th single released by Shiina Hekiru. The title track was used as the second opening theme song to the Eden's Bowy anime (Shiina's previous single was used as the first opening), where Shiina played the voice of the main characters Elisiss and Jsieda. The b-side "Itsu Made mo...", is a mid-tempo pop number which sounds like it could have come from her "with a will" era. This single was re-released on 2004.09.29, in a 12cm CD format.

The single reached #14 on the Oricon chart (making it her highest ranking single), and stayed on the chart for a total of six weeks. The re-release of the single failed to chart. This single sold a total of 57,016 copies, making it Shiina's best selling single.
