THE CHARM PARK is the next generation pop maestro who is enjoying great success right now in the scene. He has written music for a host of big artists in Japan like ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION, V6, and Sandaime J Soul Brothers vocalist Hiroomi Tosaka.

It has been announced that his new song ad meliora will be used as the ending theme for season two of Fruits Basket which will begin airing on April 6, 2020.

 

The song is described as having a gentle melody and vocals, something which THE CHARM PARK is known for, and is sung entirely in Japanese. It’s a song about believing in people and wanting to protect them. The track will be released digitally on April 7, 2020.

Fruits Basket was serialised in Hana to Yume, published by Hakusensha, from 1998 to 2006. The entire 23-volume series has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. The original 26-episode anime adaptation by Studio Deen ran in 2001 from July to December. A new series with new cast and staff began aired from April to September last year. Its long-awaited second season will return next month on April 6.

THE CHARM PARK commented the following with regards to the announcement: “I was recommended Fruits Basket by those around me when I was in high school in LA. It’s a series that really warms your heart, at times makes you a little sad, and one that you never forget. The song is about how I still treasure every day as I did back then, but wanting to work even harder. It was  inspired by the theme songs from the series back then which I love. A small homage.”

  • Opening Theme for New Fruits Basket Anime to be Performed by Beverly

    20.March.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Filipino-born Japanese pop singer―who is lauded for her powerful voice―has been put in charge to perform the opening theme song for the upcoming new anime adaptation for Natsuki Takaya’s manga series Fruits Basket.

     

    The song is titled Again and was announced at an event held at Makuhari International Training Center on March 16, 2019 to commemorate the new Fruits Basket anime series.

     

    Fruits Basket was serialised in Hana to Yume, published by Hakusensha, from 1998 to 2006. The entire 23-volume series has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. The original 26-episode anime adaptation by Studio Deen ran in 2001 from July to December. The new series will have a new cast and staff.

     

    The series has enjoyed stark popularity with manga fans, especially amongst girls, who have praised its unique story which, despite being a cute shoujo manga is unexpectedly deep. The proof of its success is evident in the revival in the new adaptation which comes over 10 years after the manga ended serialisation.

     

    Again will be released across digital music platforms on April 5. It is described as a ballad that sings thanks to life spent with a treasured-somebody that has been lost.

     

    Beverly is currently on a three-date acoustic tour entitled “My Room.” The first show was held in Tokyo on March 17. The final two concerts will take place at Nagoya School of Music and Dance School in Aichi March 23 and Osaka School of Music on March 24.

    Talking about his collaboration with the series, Vickeblanka comments: “I enjoyed reading shojo manga as a child because of my younger sister. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Fruits Basket the bible for all girls, so it is truly an honour for me to be able to perform the ending theme. Lucky Ending is a very precious song to me. It’s a fateful harmony of my own personal feelings and the messages I took from reading the series. Please be sure to give it a listen. I too am looking forward to the [new] anime airing.”
