I doubt it'll be featured in the movie, since this is not an original Japanese film or anything. I think it means that the song was created in the image of the movie/with the image of the movie in mind. RINA wrote a comment regarding the song that might clear it up more, which I'll translate shortly.

OMG!! This is the best thing that happen this week! My most fav band contribute a song for my fav series!!
This is perfect, I have the complete series of Mortal Instrument novel and I even watch the movie twice

If in any chance the song is being used as insert song in the movie, I wish I could watch the Japanese version of the movie. Because there is an insert song in the movie when the main characters are together in a roof garden and suddenly it started raining. So I think the song "Rainy" suits the scene perfectly.
But if what TGE says is correct, well, I'm happy enough that there's a connection between SCANDAL and Mortal Instruments anyway. So it won't dissapoint me XD
Seriously, this news totally made my day :')

SCANDAL has been chosen to provide the image song to the Japanese version of the American movie, “Shadow Hunter”!

Set to hit theatres across Japan on 19th April 2014, the movie (originally known as “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”) was adapted from a best-selling novel whose original work was a big hit. RINA, who penned the lyrics to ‘Rainy’, commented:

“I discovered a power in myself that I never knew of. That’s what I think whenever I have a chance to demonstrate my thoughts. While I got my inspiration from the movie plot and reflected upon the conflicts, I decided to write it with the image of encouraging people to move on to the next stage. Parts of the hook of the song is very band-like, and was written while the members and I were in the studio having a session. I look forward to a song in which I can shout with the audience during lives! I’d finished a really powerful song!”

“In any way, I’m really glad the combat scenes were this cool!! I was pretty much hyped up!! My heart was beating fast watching them shape-shift. Although I was scared, I felt like I wanted to watch it. I was really kept at the edge of my seat right up to the very end. Please do experience it for yourself in the cinema!”

“Despite being in this state now, I wish to have people who are giving it their all and moving towards their goal to listen to this. I want to present this to the fans as soon as possible, and if people were to be interested in the movie because we (our song) is going to appear in it, it’ll make me very happy!”

Fyi, the US version of the movie uses Demi Lovato and Colbie Caillat to sing the Original Soundtrack.
The fact that their choosing SCANDAL among many other popular artist in Japan really makes me proud :')

Why does this video remind me of Twilight -_-

With that out of the way, this song gives me that Shunkan Sentimental vibe.  In other words, ERMAGERD song of the year.  I don't care if it's only February.

Odd how all of those Japanese news sites called it the "image song" of the movie when SCANDAL's official Facebook just called it the "Japanese theme song" for the movie here. I'll probably change the title of the topic to fit then, because "image song" is just weird, haha.

Awesome song! The first intro progression really reminded me of Shunkan Sentimental. And it also seems like the band composed the actual song? Maybe SCANDAL really are following their goal of 'becoming a band who compose and pen their own material'. Interesting... I can't wait to hear the whole song with clearer audio! I do wonder why they haven't set a release date for the single yet though. Seems unusual, doesn't it?

Thanks for the share -- this is really great news!

Not at all, in my opinion, since their past few tie-in songs were announced to be in something well before a release date was set for them.

•"Brand new wave" was first announced in early June 2013 to be a commercial song for Stylee Sparkling; then, "Weather report" was announced in early July to be a tie-in song for the Scandal TV series. Both had no tentative release dates until they were announced in late August to be on STANDARD.

•"Runners high" was first announced in mid-September 2013 to be the ending song for Sengoku BASARA 4, and it also did not have a release date. The announcement that it would be released on the split single with TMR didn't come until almost mid-December.


If they are to release "Rainy" as a single, I'm sure an announcement for it will come within the next few weeks or so.

lol yeah it's stuck in my head too and the repeat button gets no rest from me!

Same here, it's because of the melody that starts at 0.05/0.06 ^_^

Why you think they composed the song? Because RINA said they were in studio? Hum it could be if she is the only one credited with the lyrics, would mean that the band made the music during a studio session.

But gonna wait for official credits :)Would be awesome indeed if they write more songs because I really like their style.

I totally hope this will be a single!!!! But yeah not sure, maybe it's just promo like Brand New Wave or Weather Report. If it's the case it better be on the new album like Runners High miss SCANDAL-san or I will be angry =P

EDIT :

and if people were to be interested in the movie because we (our song) is going to appear in it, it’ll make me very happy!

Is this real? I mean will their song be also edited directly IN the movie? I just thought this was the official/theme/image song used for the movie as promo. Well if the song is IN the movie it's even more awesome!

RINA does not specifically say that the song will be in the movie. That translator took a few liberties with that translation, imo, and it's a bit incorrect.

This is how I'd translate that sentence, trying to get as close to the actual meaning in Japanese as possible:

I'd be happy if those who find out about us from this movie are pleased [with our song]!

Yeah that's what I thought. I would have been surprise if they edited the movie to add SCANDAL in it. This is more of a normal theme song/promo song.

That being said, would be smart to edit the music movie and add a japanese artist in one scene for the japanese market but I have no idea how the industry works. It's not the same as having an intro of a TV show. But well, let's see!

This song is really good! Hopefully, it'll be released around the time of April... which is another thing to look forward too!

Side note: The movie reminds me of a video game character from warcraft III XD...

Side note 2: Is this movie based on this board game? http://www.gamehead.com/article/1595/shadow-hunters

No, it is based on the The Mortal Instruments young adult novel series. The title Shadow Hunter is just what the Japanese release will be called, and it's derived from what the main character in the series is: a Shadowhunter.
