I've tried looking up information on this but haven't found anything so far, but I'm really curious about this.

The theme song to this Harvest Moon video game, similarly named "Love is shine" is identical to mihimaru's "Love is..." around the chorus: http://youtu.be/_eiikmtHOp0

So I was wondering, is this some kind of uncredited cover? Is it blatant plagiarism? Or are they both covers of some older classic song? XD I'm really curious!

I am not sure but its the same song from track 6 of this soundtrack with mihimaru GT's disconsolate acoustic vers. I am wondering too. Its been there for some time. Didnt know a movie soundtrack became a game soundtrack haha

It's not plagiarism and the partial cover (just the chorus is covered) is credited. I remember when the song was first released, I read several articles about it. The singer Kurose Manami is a fan of mihimaru GT and got permission to use part of their song. It would be hard for her to plagiarize the song, too, since they're signed to the same record label! I wish I could find those articles now, but I'm having trouble Pissed

It's interesting though, that the song was used for both the movie and a video game.

Ahh okay! Thank you for shedding some light on this ^^ That's pretty awesome, Love is... is a great song. So cool that she's a big fan of mihimaruGT ;D Plus it vaguely links one of my favourite bands to one of my favourite games Laugh
