  • flumpool Perform Ahiru no Sora Anime’s New Opening Theme ‘Nevermind’

    11.December.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    It has been announced that flumpool will perform the new opening theme Nevermind for the ongoing basketball anime series Ahiru no Sora. It will be used from January 8, 2020, and also be released digitally on the same day.


    In 2019, the band came out of their indefinite hiatus after flumpool vocalist Ryuta Yamamura recovered from his functional vocal disorder, and the band successfully completed a nationwide tour in Japan. The band promised fans during the tour that they would go all out in 2020.


    It was previously announced that flumpool would perform a special end-of-year concert in their hometown of Osaka at Osaka-jo Hall on December 30. It has now been revealed that vocalist Yamamura will feature as a regular presenter on the local Osaka radio show Radio Fields on FM802 starting in January. 2020 is already looking to be a huge start for the band.

    Speaking about Neverland, Yamamura said: ‘We wrote the song about not losing to yourself. I was impressed by the [Ahiru no Sora] protagonist Sora Kurumatani, who finds no excuse for his height when playing basketball. Everybody more or less has their own complexes, some kind of disease or handicap. At the same time, they should also promise and vow that they will never lose to those things. At times, it’s something people have to live with and carry on their back, like a cross you can’t separate from. When I was diagnosed with functional vocal disorder last year, and my voice wouldn’t come out, I said these words to myself. “I’m not paying any attention to my hopeless self! Never mind! I’ll make it through to tomorrow the best I can. I won’t lose to myself.” This is a lifelong issue that’s much more difficult than putting into words. I believe Sora Kurumatani’s incredible courage will lead other people. We want to convey this song too while feeling that Neverland is responsible for a part of that happiness.”
