Japanese music duo OxT who performing the opening theme song UNION for the new anime series SSSS.GRIDMAN―which began airing on October 7―have released a new artist photo.
As soon as the first episode of SSSS.GRIDMAN dropped it shot up to no.1 and no.2 on the trending tab on Twitter in Japan with people showing their excitement for the series. UNION featured as an insert song in the episode, syncing perfectly with the fight scene between Gridman and the kaiju that appeared. Masayoshi Ōishi, the vocalist of OxT, also expressed his feelings for the show on Twitter, describing it as so feelsy that he cried.
Also, episode 1.1 of a new voice drama was posted over on the official YouTube page of Tsuburaya Productions, the producers of the anime. It’s available for a limited time only and ties in with episode one of the anime. Check it out below.
UNION will be released on CD on November 7 and will be coupled with a cover of Yume no Hero, the theme song of the original Gridman the Hyper Agent from 25 years ago.
The TV-size edit of the song will be available across digital music platforms on October 14 ahead of the CD release.
