Myuk Performs The Promised Neverland Season 2’s Ending Theme

18.December.2020 | ANIME&GAME

It has been announced that Myuk will perform the ending theme Mahou (‘Magic’) for the upcoming second season of the TV anime series The Promised Neverland, adapted from Kaiu Shirai’s manga of the same name, which is set to begin airing on January 7, 2021. The song was written by popular Japanese artist Eve.

 

Myuk | Comment

“I love The Promised Neverland. I watched the first season as a fan and looked forward to a new episode every week. Now I get to sing a song written by Eve, an artist who I’ve always listened to and have great respect for. It all feels like a dream. The time you spend with someone precious to you as like ‘magic,’ and even should that fade some day, your memories of them will live on. That will be your nourishment. In this song I sing about feeling lost when moving forward, and those nights of solitude when you feel lonely. I’m personally honoured to have this song, ‘Mahou,’ playing together with Emma and her friends, who I love so much, on screen. I pray that lots of people get to hear it!”

 

Eve | Comment

“It has hit me hard on many occasions seeing those young boys and girls facing their cruel world with a positive outlook. I’ve learned a lot some this series. This was my first time working with Myuk’s voice, and just like those simple and honest boys and girls, her voice has both tremendous strength together with a tense of transience, like she is going to disappear. It made me feel confident that ‘Magic’ as a song will be far-reaching as it resonates.”

    Kiro Akiyama | Comment

    “I love the the manga series, I read it since it began serialisation, so I’m really happy to be involved! Usually, the influence you have from reading a manga or watching an anime when writing a song for a series is immeasurable. The colours and smells of this series really stand out, so much so that I feel they’ve become part of who I am. I tackled the song head on, so I hope I too have become part of the series. Like how the story of Emma and everyone ties them together and they’re right there next to you […]”

    Identity will be released on January 27, 2021.

    Shinichiro Kamio (Voices: Sonju) | Comment

    “No matter how many times I read the manga, I always end up crying. I really love the series and watched the first season, so I was so excited to find out that I passed the audition. I tried to stay faithful to Sonju as a character to capture everything he’s about, from his relationship with Mujika to his emotional involvement with the other children, his beliefs and his anguish as a demon. Please look forward to it!”

     

    Atsumi Tanezaki (Voices: Mujika) | Comment

    “Please take a look at the key visual. That’s right, Mujika is a Demon. But she’s a very mysterious presence, so I paid much attention to the nuance of each and every one of my lines. I had read the manga before I was chosen for the role, so I was very nervous each take.”
