Director Nomura was deadset on choosing Utada Hikaru to compose the series' theme songs from the very beginning, despite the beliefs of failure from the other staff. In fact, persuading them otherwise took more time than to negotiate with Utada.

Haha, interesting. I have to wonder why.
The rest of the team were convinced that he'd be wasting his time trying to persuade her because "there's just no way she'd accept."
"Yeah she likes Disney and games so she'll probably accept."
Gasp! I'm so proud of myself! I knew this trivia...YES!!! I like to see how many trivias I'll know, most I don't, but I knew this one a few others :D
I'm glad he fought so hard for it. I can't imagine how it would've been without Utada.

Nomura's definitely a guy to respect and admire. He had a vision and he was deadset on getting as much of that vision across to the audience as possible. Not much creators have that resolve, considering some pretty awful book-to-movie adaptations I've seen. xD
