I already said that the "just do your best and everything will be fine" thematic is rather abused in Japanese POP music, yet I just can't stop loving this song. Maybe is because of the singer, Kokia; with her voice she could just sing anything and it would be still beautiful. Or maybe it's because the way she sings it: it's so direct, so hearty that's it's hard to think that she wasn't really believing in what she was singing. So she just drags you in.

The title means "dreams are strength" (or power, "chikara" means both). Kokia has recently made an acoustic (guitar only) version of this song; her voice in this latest version is nearly magic.
