Change The World is the first opening theme song from the Inu-Yasha anime and manga series by Rumiko Takahashi. It was sung by V6.

InuYasha tells the story of Kagome Higurashi, a girl who is transported to the past after falling into a well. She then meets Inuyasha, a half-demon. The 2 end up going on a journey in search of the shards of the magical Shikon No Tama.

What do you think about this quote from the song, which is the song title as well? Do you like it? Well, who doesn’t want to change the world, right? With all the evil and the crimes and the hate and everything else that is wrong with the world, don’t you want to change it and make it a better place for everyone?

Don’t you want to make this world a happier and fairer place for everyone and get rid of all the bad guys? Don’t you want to make people smile and be happy?

We hear so much bad news pretty much everyday that it’s hard not to think and wish for the world to change, right?

Do you think we’re being idealistic in thinking this way? Is being able to change the world nothing but a fleeting, faraway dream that’s so far out of our grasp that we won’t be able to see this happen in our lifetime?

Or is there actually hope that this is possible and that this can be done? It’s so easy to say the quote, right? "I want to change the world." We can say it so many times, but it wouldn’t make a difference if we don’t try to change the world. Saying is different from doing.

Change doesn’t come easily and it certainly won’t happen overnight. Change needs time and effort. It’s not enough to just say that you want to change the world.

And maybe that’s why the song from Inuyasha keeps repeating these words in the chorus.

It sounds almost like a commitment, right, as if saying it enough times might get us to believe that this is possible and that it might spur us into action so that change can actually occur. What do you think?
