It has been announced that singer-songwriter Aimyon will perform the main theme song for the anime film Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane ~The Lost Hiroshi~ which is set to release on April 19, 2019.
Aimyon is a huge fan of Cragon Shin-chan. The song she has written for the latest film is titled Haru no Hi (“Spring Day”). It focuses on the love between Shin-chan’s parents Hiroshi and Misae Nohara from their perspective and their honeymoon trip which they have never been on and which the film is based on.
The song will also be used as the new ending theme song for the Crayon Shin-chan anime series from February 8. Aimyon’s 7th single to date, the CD will hit shelves on April 17, two days before the film’s premiere.
Aimyon gave the following comments about the collaboration: “I have been given the opportunity to perform the main theme for Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane ~The Lost Hiroshi~. I have loved the series since I was a child. I am so grateful to be able to say that. But at the same time I wondered to myself how I would be able to convey those loving memories, in my own way, in a song. When I heard that it was about ‘family love’ I thought I would write a song about the birth of the Nohara household. Crayon Shin-chan always taught me about the strength of family ties and happiness. Of course, that includes his bonds with everyone in the Kasukabe Defence Force too. There are of course times he stumbles too. The message the series gets across touches my heart. I am truly happy to be involved with this movie. Thank you for this lifetime treasure. I hope that the song Haru no Hi that I wrote reaches many places.”
She continues: “This is a different film, but I watched [Crayon Shin-chan: Fierceness That Invites Storm!] The Adult Empire Strikes Back from 2001. That’s where I first saw the Tower of the Sun by Tarō Okamoto. Crayon Shin-chan also introduced me to Takuro Yoshida, Betsy & Chris and others. It might not be the same, but I would be happy if I’m able to return the favour even a little.”
Shin-chan also made a comment himself: “Cheers for making such a wonderful song for us. It makes me feel relaxed all the way to the centre of my butt. It was a really good song! Ahh, I want Aimyon to propose to me… Be sure you all listen to it!”
