The ending theme song of the currently airing television anime Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion, titled “Always and Forever,” was released on CD on April 26, 2023. This marks SERRA’s first anime tie-up song, which she personally wrote and composed. The song is an emotive piece that perfectly complements the anime.

Regarding the song, SERRA stated, “I’m thrilled that my first anime tie-up is Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion. When I read the story, I was deeply moved by Raeliana’s strength and determination to survive. I tried to stay true to her character as I crafted the lyrics and melody and sang with heartfelt emotion. I hope you will appreciate the grand and emotionally charged sound. My wish is that my voice and the story will inspire you, even a little, to keep going.”

The coupling song, “Kokotsu no Memento,” is also based on the medieval world of Why Raeliana Ended Up at the Duke’s Mansion, but while “Always and Forever” is about life, “Kokotsu no Memento” is about death, giving the two songs a relative significance.

A music video of “Always and Forever” has also been released. It portrays the theme of love through a poignant story of a man and woman, whose hearts remain connected despite the distance between them. This wistful tale is infused with a glimmer of hope, making it a heartwarming depiction of enduring love.
