Fant么me is the sixth Japanese studio album (ninth overall) by Japanese鈥揂merican recording artist Hikaru Utada. Although Utada announced an indefinite hiatus from the public eye in August 2010, she continued writing and composing material with her father, Utada Teruzane, and long-term collaborator, Miyake Akira. Musically, Fant么me is a collection of tracks that emphasize acoustic and stripped-down instrumentation, alongside influences of pop, electronic, and R&B music. The lyrical content delves into themes of grief, sadness, love, and death, mostly influenced by the death of her mother, her second marriage, and the birth of her son in 2015.

Commercially, Fant么me experienced success in Japan, winning Album Of The Year at the Japan Record Awards and reaching the top of the Weekly Oricon Albums Chart with sales of 253,000 units, becoming her eighth consecutive Japanese-language album to top the said chart. Successful throughout digital outlets, the record also managed to enter record charts in the United States, her first Japanese release to do so. It has sold over a million copies worldwide. In order to promote it, the album's singles "Sakura Nagashi", "Hanataba o Kimi ni", and "Manatsu no T艒riame" were released prior to the album's announcement, whereas "Michi" and "Nijikan Dake no Vacance" were dropped shortly before its release.
