This song was created based on the “gyaru spirit” that Hitomi Akaogi, the editor-in-chief of egg at the time, spoke about on TV.
The lyrics are an answer to the prejudice against gal and the various opinions that have been directed at her by the public.
-What is “Gal Soul”? -Gal Theory is about
It’s about pursuing what you love to do. It doesn’t matter what age, gender, or nationality you are. It is not about doing it because it makes you popular. I like what I like. Stick to what you like. Say what you want to say. The spirit and way of life of not lying about one’s feelings. That is what gal is.
One year has passed since the release of the song dedicated to all those who have such a gyaru mindset, and as of December 2022, it has received over 4.6 million views on YouTube.
The lyrical content of the song has become a hit among Generation Z in Japan, and it has even become a trending topic on TikTok.
The song has also generated a great deal of buzz not only in Japan, but also among people with a global mindset.
