BUMP OF CHICKEN’s Song ‘Gekkou’ to Feature New Karakuri Circus Ending Theme

07.April.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

It has been announced that BUMP OF CHICKEN’s song Gekkou will be used as the third ending theme for the ongoing anime series Karakuri Circus from April 11 onward.

 

Gekkou was previously used as the anime’s first opening theme from October to December last year. The song features a unique fusion of acoustic guitar and accordion mixed with a fast-paced guitar sound.

 

The song was written and composed by the band’s vocalist and guitarist Motoo Fujiwara. All the members are known fans of the Karakuri Circus manga series which made them a perfect fit for performing the track.

It is extremely rare to see the same song used as both an opening and ending theme to an anime series. Perhaps it is an insight into the song’s deep connection with the series. This time, the second half of the song will be used as the ending theme. The new lyrics and deepening ensemble will serve to prop up the story as it draws to its conclusion.

 

An official new promotional video was posted YouTube which plays the new ending theme. Check it out below.
