SPYAIR have released the music video for I Wanna Be…, the opening theme song to Gintama Shirogane no Tamashii-hen, the latest instalment to the Gintama anime series which began airing on July 8.
The video was directed by Masakazu Fukatsu who has worked on numerous music videos for SPYAIR.
The elaborate warehouse setting gives off the vibe of downtown US while the nostalgic-sounding performance captures feelings of the past, present and future.
I Wanna Be… will be released on CD next week on July 25. SPYAIR has a history of collaborations with anime series, movies and games. This will be the rock band’s first anime opening theme song in five years since Sakura Mitsutsuki in 2013 which served as the 13th opening theme for Gintama.
The limited pressing edition features 7-inch Gintama illustrative packaging as well as every single song the band has provided for the series.
In addition to I Wanna Be…, it also includes Some Like It Hot!! which came out 7 years ago and is still enjoying healthy sales; Sakura Mitsutsuki which was the second opening to Gintama’: Enchousen; Genjo Destruction which was an insert theme for Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya; and finally Scramble, the theme song to the PS4® and PS Vita action game Gintama Rumble.
The regular edition will include the title song as well as the rap battle song Hold It, Buster!! ~Battle of Rap~ by vocalist IKE and guitartist and programmer UZ following on from BRING IT ON ~Battle of Rap~.通
