Usagi tocome (feat. Kopink) (兎tocome (feat. コピンク), pronounced Usagi to Kame; Hare and Tortoise) is the third digital single by Miyamoto Karin as Kopink, also featuring Sawayaka Goro as Goro on minor vocals. It was released on December 5, 2012.

An earlier version of the song by Sawayaka, titled "Usagi tocome (feat. Goro)", was released on July 4, 2012 with him instead singing lead vocals and Miyamoto singing minor vocals.

The Kopink version was used as the image song for the Shizuoka Sunpu Marathon in March 2012.[1]

Single InformationEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The song was first written with the rabbit character Goro in mind, who gave Kodama the impression of being acrobatic and running and jumping. A Kopinks! producer associated "rabbit" with "competition" or "sports", which eventually lead to the fable The Tortoise and the Hare (titled Usagi to Kame in Japanese). As the song has the lyric "kimi ga kaketekuru" (君が駆けてくる; you come running), "to come" was used in place of "to kame" (とカメ) in the song title as a call to the future. While Kodama was undecided on how the title was read and wasn't sure how to tell those who asked, "Usage to Kame" stuck as the pronunciation because Kopinks! staff all began reading it that way.[2]
