Eggs is a popular Japanese digital music website for indie bands where talented musicians set on music as a career gather. Miyuna is a female high school student and singer from Miyazaki Prefecture who has a page on the website, and it’s there that she released a demo song with just her and an acoustic guitar which shot up to No. 1.
The singer was chosen to perform the opening and ending themes to season two of Black Clover which began on October 2.
Miyuna is 16-years-old and has only just entered her first year of high school. She began taking her music career seriously this summer, performing at clubs in her hometown of Miyazaki as well as Fukuoka and even as far as Tokyo. It’s just short of 8 months since she began making music with her guitar.
By uploading the demo to Eggs during her early career and communicating in real time with music fans on social media she was able to complete the song. Listeners have shown support for this method of music distribution that turns the regular industry on its head – that a song that hasn’t even been completed yet reached number one on both the weekly music and artist rankings.
When Miyuna began performing live in the early summer her overwhelming voice caught the attention of those involved in music immediately. It didn’t take long for word on her to spread.
The 16-year-old has now become a big player in the industry with her involvement with Black Clover.
The opening theme song Reckless is now available on most major music streaming websites. It’s a fast-paced number that expresses purely the troubles and impulses of a 16-year-old.
Miyuna said the following about her involvement with the series:
“Thank you so much for letting me be responsible for the theme songs – it’s a big task. The protagonists Asta and Yuno leave their small village and embark to the big city to work hard and fulfil their big dream to become the Wizard King. I left Miyazaki Prefecture and am also working hard to fulfil my dream of becoming a singer. The two of them advance toward their dream without being crushed no matter what happens. Seeing that gives me great dreams and aspirations too. And the characters in Black Clover each have their own deep stories. Their worries and dark sides overlap with me too, and I also get courage seeing them overcome boundaries together with their comrades. I offer these important songs that tells those stories to everyone’s hearts with everything I have!”
The fact that the songs overlap Miyuna’s own circumstances with Black Clover’s story means that the lyrics and melody have an energy and power that only she can express. They are a fitting addition to the anime which is entering its second year.
The ending theme is titled Heaven and Earth and Black Clover is the first place it was heard completed and in full.
