Comment From Takanori Nishikawa
“It’s been a while! ‘Gakuen Basara’ is a long-cherished anime of mine, and I can’t hide my happiness at the fact it’s starting! It’s a spin-off series and will be different from the other anime series and games to date, but personally that’s something I genuinely want to enjoy. That’s why I thought to take a different approach to songwriting this time and collaborated with Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas who I’ve been friends with for a while. I hope everyone looks forward to the song as much as the series.”
Comment From Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas
“We somehow receive an offer from Nishikawa and worked on a collaborative track which is a first for this band! We’re truly grateful to have received such a valuable opportunity! Please be sure to listen to the song and hear the chemical reaction between Las Vegas’ music and Nishkawa’s voice!
The anime series will premiere on TBS on October 4 and then on BS-TBS on October 6. The opening theme song will be performed by virtual idols EIGHT OF TRIANGLE.
