Black Clover’s New ED Theme ‘Jinsei wa Senjō da’ Performed by Kalen Anzai

02.October.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

Kalen Anzai made her debut with her single Sekai no Subete Teki ni Kanjite Kodoku Sae Ai Shiteia which was released across digital music platforms on May 1 this year. Since then, her music has been picked up by major music media services, like MTV and MUSIC ON! TV in Japan, who have played her songs countless times.

 

Since her debut, she has been lauded as a next-generation icon, earning the nickname Posu Gyaru (“Post-Millennial Girl”). Her popularity has spread across Japan: she was featured on the front cover of online and physical Shibuya culture magazine POSTOKYO.JP, was the first female solo artist to feature in the promotional visual for cosmetic brand M·A·C, and more.

Her new single, Jisei wa Senjō da (“Life is a Battleground”), was released digitally on October 1. The song will be used as the new ending theme for the ongoing TV anime series Black Clover.

 

She has been a longtime fan of the manga series, which has sold over 9 million copies. It is written and illustrated by Yūki Tabata and serialised in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine.

Speaking about her involvement with the series, Anzai commented: “Everyone in the Black Bull squad is straightforward when it comes to their feelings, and they believe in their friends. It’s something that always gives me courage. I’m honoured to have the opportunity to sing the ending theme for a series I love so much.”

 

She continues: “This song is akin to Asta, [touching on things like] the pain felt in the face of adversity, and sewing courage, so I’d be overjoyed if it gets across to people in some way when it plays in the series.”

 

The official music video was posted on avex’s YouTube channel and can be seen below.

 

The music video is Anzai’s third in a series of three, following on from Sekai no Subete Teki ni Kanjite Kodoku Sae Ai Shiteia and Dareka no Raise no Yume Demo ii. It’s set in a fictional world called “Immersive Society 3.0,” based on a near-future created by advanced AR technology. It considers the worry of losing sight of our real selves to create a virtual version.

 

Anzai teamed up with some of Japan’s leading Sci-Fi creators to make this crazy virtual reality feel more real, including acclaimed Japanese CG studio Cafe Group, and Yuki Tsujimoto who has received huge praise for his futuristic visuals.

 

Anzai’s outfit was created by RISA “ribbon” KATO―who is known for her unique style and as a spearhead of street fashion―while her hair and makeup in the video was done by TORI. who is also known for her work as a collage artist. All of the people involved with the music video have helped to elevate its cyberpunk, vaporwave, and avant-garde aesthetic.

Anzai has also teamed up with Tower Records for their Ki ni Naru Ano Ko (“We’re Curious About That Artist”) promotion for Tower Records Members. The above-pictured poster is now plastered across all Tower Records branches. Anzai is dressed in the music store’s red and yellow colours and is serving that post-millennial girl makeup.

With the hype around her surging, we look forward to seeing what Kalen Anzai has in store next. Stay tuned for updates.

    Having released the new song Black Catcher digitally on January 8, 2020, Vickeblanka just dropped the song’s official music video.

    https://youtu.be/hP6VM6YAMIE

     

    Committed to releasing a new song digitally every month for three months, Black Catcher marks Vickeblanka’s second song release in the project. Black Catcher was written as the season 10 anime opening theme song for Black Clover. The ominous video reflects darkness and urgency, weaving the turbulent story with a sense of awakening. The colours of the video create a world of distorted paradise. 

    Although the new Black Clover episodes started airing just yesterday, the video for the opening theme song has already become a big sensation and is already showing signs of becoming the top fighting spirit song of 2020.

    A Statement by Vickeblanka

    I cannot express just how privileged I feel to have been entrusted with creating the opening theme song for Black Clover for the second time now. The music video is a story of being purified by a small version of oneself. Although part of the video is just me messing around, I hope that viewers can connect with the song through the visuals created by the unique colours and atmosphere. 

     

    Vickeblanka will release a new album called Devil on March 4, 2020 and is also set for Tour de Devil 2020.  Tickets will be available to purchase from event hosts in the respective performance regions.

  • Vickeblanka’s New Song ‘Black Catcher’ Revealed as Black Clover Opening 10

    07.January.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Artist Vickeblanka will release a new song called Black Catcher on January 8, marking the second release of the singer’s three-month digital song release plan. Black Catcher will be used as the tenth opening theme song for the anime Black Clover.

    A strong melody pours out over the dark soundscape of this song. The groaning bassline is punctured by the sharp beat of the drums, over which the guitar melody glides gracefully, entwined with the turbulent yet beautiful piano accompaniment. The fighting spirit of the song rises with the endless strength of the vocals. 

    This isn’t the first Black Clover opening theme song for Vickeblanka – the artist previously released the song Black Rover as a Black Clover anime opening. The song ranked at number 15 on Spotify’s 2019 list of most played Japanese songs overseas. At the moment, the sensational song has been played over 20 million times on streaming services and over 15 million times on just Spotify alone, leaving expectations for Vickeblanka’s upcoming track at an all-time high. 

     

    A Statement by Vickeblanka

    As a Jump fan, I am extremely honoured to be in charge of a Black Clover opening for the second time now. As the story has progressed significantly since, I put a lot more empathy into this song. It is filled with darkness and a sense of urgency. 

     

    Vickeblanka is set to release the new album Devil on March 4, marking the artist’s third ever original album release in a year and four months. As fans reminisce of how we were drawn in by the euphoric world of Vickeblanka’s previous album wizard, the complete change of tone with the new album Devil is sure to shock listeners. 

     

    Vickeblanka will also embark on a tour titled Tour de Devil 2020 which consists of eight performances including some in Higashi-Meihan halls. The tour will kick off at Orix Theater, Osaka on April 29 and will arrive at NTK Hall Forest Hall, Nagoya on May 1. The final performance will take place on May 9 at Nakano Sunplaza in Tokyo. Tickets will be available to purchase from event hosts in the respective performance regions.

    Ohmori is responsible for having written the lyrics for and composed the track while ANCHOR (ZiNG), who arranged many of her tracks from her album Kusokawa Party, produced the album.

     

    The catchy track has a guitar rock sound backed up by Ohmori’s high-pitched vocals laced with her characteristic word play. The lyrics reflect the feelings of the protagonist of the Weekly Shonen Jump series.

    The digital song’s cover art was created by Kaoru Aoyagi and is very Ohmori-esque.

  • SOLIDEMO & Sakuramen Perform Black Clover’s New Ending Theme

    08.January.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC / Uncategorized

    Eight-member all-male vocal group SOLIDEMO and the handsome pack of wagakki-instrument-playing guys in Sakuramen have collaborated on a new song titled My Song My Days which has been announced as the new ending theme for the Black Clover anime series.

    The Black Clover manga series has been seralised in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since 2015 and has gone on to sell over 6 million copies. It takes place in a world where anyone has the ability to use magic and follows Asta and Yuno, orphans who were abandoned at a church orphanage. The series explores the adventures and growth of Asta, who hasn’t been able to use magic since he was born, and Yuno, who wields great magical power.

    My Song My Days combines SOLIDEMO’s harmonies and Sakuramen’s traditional Japanese instruments.

    SOLIDEMO Members Comment:

    “We have been reading Jump since [the series] was first serialised. We love it so we are extremely honoured to be performing the ending theme! Asta is someone who believes in his dreams and pushes forward in the face of adversity. We borrow that power too. In this collaboration with Sakuramen we get right into the outlook of the series and sing as if we have taken new magic into our hands.”

  • TV Anime Series ‘Black Clover’ Season 2 Opening & Ending Theme Performed by Miyuna

    03.October.2018 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    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.

    MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON FESTIVAL 2018 in SHIBUYA delivered Japanese culture to the world from Shibuya. The event saw 16,000 people attend across the two-day period to experience a new kind of Japanese festival.

     

    This report will cover the Featuring Japanese new music “MOSHI MOSHI MUSIC FESTIVAL” event that took place at SKY GARDEN on the rooftop of Tower Records Shibuya, a place which which has built a history of music in Shibuya.

     

    Idols are one aspect of Japanese culture that Japan can boast to the world. The event showcased a line-up of idols groups that MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON (MMN) want to introduce to the world. Let’s take a look at the idol stage which was packed full of Japanese ‘kawaii’!

    c-style

    Kicking off the performances on Day One was two-member idol unit C-Style from the city of Kisarazu. They left a strong impact on the crowd dressed in red and blue sailor outfits and donning sunglasses.

    Kus Kus

    Next was another two-member unit, Kus Kus. Their perfectly coordinated choreography captivated the audience as they danced to the tune of easy-listening electro pop.

    24日ゑんら_preview

    Wyenra were the third act. If you were to divide shadows and sunshine they are a group who certainly bring the ‘shadow,’ wrapping the crowd with the dark side of springtime weather.

    QUEENS

    The fourth group were dancing rock idols QUEENS. Wyenra debuted this year on February 10th while QUEENS debuted on January 31st. You would never know these groups had formed so recently with their magnificent performances.

    24日Jewel☆Neige_preview

    As the sun started setting on SKY GARDEN, Jewel☆Neige stepped onto stage wearing dazzlingly beautiful white and silver outfits. The audience made a huge display of their excitement with the group’s unshakable performance.

    CY8ER

    Act number six was 5-member group CY8ER. There was a sense of mutual elation with everyone gathered in the crowd with the group’s Japanese-esque-incorporated future bass songs with easy choreography that even first-timers seeing the group could copy.

    なんキニ!

    The seventh group on stage was Nankini! Unfortunately, one member was unable to make it, but the remaining two put on a thrilling performance with everything they had. If you wanted to see them three of them together then be sure to check out another one of their events.

    Yamakatsu

    The final idol group of Day One was Yamakatsu whose fired up performance also had the people in the crowd psyched and singing as they wrapped up the day with the right amount of exhilaration.

    C-Style

    The top batters for Day Two were C-Style once again. For the second day the members wore special green happi coats which had the Japanese character ‘mo’ (も) on the back.

    25日NEO JAPONISM_preview

    Following them was NEO JAPONISM who made their debut in December 2017. Their ‘neo’ sound had the crowd pumped. Their outfits had a mode taste to them and incorporated a traditional Japanese style which looked pretty even on an outdoor stage.

    Yamakatsu

    Act three was Yamakatsu who also performed on Day One. They put on a galvanizing performance to even more people this time. And although they didn’t perform it on this day, people are looking forward to their new single distopia set to hit shelves on April 17th.

    フィロソフィーのダンス

    Next was The Dance for Philosophy for which over 400 people turned up to the roof. The group wowed the packed venue with their funk numbers and outstanding vocal abilities.

    PPP!PiXiON

    PPP!PiXiON were next to grace the stage. Despite one member graduating from the group leaving them with four members, there was some serious support from the fans as each of them put on an energetic performance.

    さきどり発進局

    Sakidori Hasshinkyoku who went on stage as the sixth act began their performance with their song Karimen Destiny which was released in February. They wrapped up their setlist with their staple track Gimirepa and brought much excitement to the floor.

    天晴れ!原宿

    Following them was APPARE! Harajuku who are tied to the same studio as Sakidori Hasshinkyoku. Their setlist also inevitably livened the atmosphere, and their final song Harajuku Sunny Day had the crowd so pumped as if the building was going to fall down.

    25日sora tob sakana_preview

    As night turned and the rooftop turned to black, the progressive sound and singing abilities of the four members from sora tob sakana established their style as unique – even in the idol world.

    愛乙女☆DOLL

    Pulling the curtains shut on Day Two was idol group Lovely Doll. The performance from the seven members was the kind of performance you’d expect from such a seasoned group. They finished up Day Two with Calendar Girl which was voted as the number one most popular song amongst fans.
