26.August.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

It has been announced that Japanese singer-songwriter Sayuri’s new song Koukai no Uta (‘Song of Voyage’) will be used as the ending theme for season 4 of the hit shōnen anime series My Hero Academia.

 

Sayuri’s first studio album Mikazuki no Koukai was released in 2017, making it to No. 1 on Oricon’s daily album charts and No. 3 on its weekly album charts. She has also collaborated with many artists including with Yojiro Noda of RADWIMPS who wrote and produced her song Furaregai Girl as well with MY FIRST STORY on Reimei.

The My Hero Academia manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi is serialised in Weekly Shōnen Jump with over 23 million copies in print. Both the manga and anime have proved sensational both in Japan and overseas.

 

The fourth season’s ending theme Koukai no Uta was written specifically for the anime series. It touches on Sayuri’s journey from the release of her first album until now and the hope for the future that lies ahead of her. The song will hit shelves on CD as a single on November 27.

Speaking about My Hero Academia, Sayuri comments: “For me, My Hero Academia is a series that protects me, and turns the little feelings inside of me into tangible strength. That’s the kind of thing I wanted to sing about and so I wrote Koukai no Uta. I hope people enjoy it along with the [anime’s] evolving story.”
