Masaki Suda to Perform My Hero Academia’s Season 3 Ending Theme ‘Long Hope Philia’

26.June.2018 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

Masaki Suda will release his new single Long Hope Philia on August 1, and it’s been announced that the track Long Hope Philia (TV Limited) will be used as the ending theme for season three of My Hero Academia from July 14.

Long Hope Philia will be used as the main theme song for the upcoming My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie dropping on August 3.  It was composed and written by Hiromu Akita (amazarashi). This is the first time Masaki Suda has been involved with the main theme song for an anime movie. It will be released digitally on July 14 and physically on August 1.

The “TV Limited” version of Long Hope Philia is arranged in a different way to the original, with Suda’s voice echoing even deeper. This version will be coupled on the Limited Pressing Edition of the single set to be released on August 1.

The CD covers and tracklist for each edition of the single have also been released. The single includes the song Soft Vinyl Figure with lyrics written by Suda himself. The First Press Limited Edition includes over 40-minutes worth of footage from his solo concert at Shibuya WWW X on February 23, 2018. This is the first time his concert footage has been compiled for release.

■Masaki Suda’s Comments

“I’ve read Jump every week since I was young. I’ve also read My Hero Academia since it was first serialized, so I’m both incredibly honoured and overjoyed as a fan to be singing the ending theme. I’ve liked the story for a long time, how there are no humans who are able to do anything from the get go, and how anybody can become a hero if they continue to endeavour without giving up. It’s a thought that belongs to the series, and I think that the outlook of both the song and story matches perfectly.”

 

Look forward to the song dropping on My Hero Academia on July 14.

  • Stand by Me Doraemon 2’s Main Theme Artists Masaki Suda and Huwie Ishizaki Feature in Oggi Magazine

    30.November.2020 | MOVIE / MUSIC

    Shogakukan released the January 2021 issue of the women’s fashion magazine Oggi on November 27, 2020.

     

    Vocals: Masaki Suda / Lyrics & Composition: Huwie Ishizaki

    The 3D CG anime film Stand by Me Doraemon 2 was released in Japan on November 20, 2020. Japanese actor and singer Masaki Suda who sings the film’s main theme features in the January 2021 issue of the women’s fashion magazine Oggi in a talk with Huwie Ishizaki who wrote and composed the song.

     

    Ishizaki has worked with Suda on numerous occasions, including writing songs for him, which is what led to him calling Suda on board once more.

    “Once again, Nobita shows in this film just how hopeless he really is,” Suda explains. “But seeing him try his hardest like that, desperate and trying to protect someone really just gives you courage. Of course, Huwie was the first person I thought of when going to sing about something like that.”

     

    About a year has passed since Suda made the request to Ishizaki who had been sending him lyrics and melodies during that time. This is a film centred on the marriage between Nobita and Shizuka, and so the main theme was written as a wedding song with frank and honest lyrics.

     

    Their facial expressions and poses are a must-see

    “I worked on a song with Suda on his album ‘LOVE,’ and he also let me cover his song ‘Ito’ before. With this song, I wanted to create something that expresses bonds. A story of two people. A word that made sense to me was ‘rainbow,’ something that suspends these feelings between people. Rainbow was the only choice.”

     

    The full talk goes into detail about how Suda and Ishizaki met, their mutual respect for each other, and more. There’s also a series of photos the two of them took together while having fun with an instant camera.

    Stand by Me Doraemon 2 is being shown at Toho theatres across Japan.

     

    To see more of Suda and Ishizaki, you’ll need to pick up a copy of Oggi’s January 2021 edition, now on sale in Japan.
