  • ‘VOLTAGE’ by Anly Chosen as Ending Theme for BORUTO Anime Series

    20.December.2021 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Anly’s new song VOLTAGE will serve as the new ending theme song for the TV Tokyo anime series Boruto. 

    This will be the second time that Anly has teamed up with the Naruto series, having previously performed the opening theme Kara no Kokoro from Naruto Shippuden. The track has been streamed over 20 million times globally.

    Comment from Anly

    It’s been a long time since I’ve worked with the Naruto series, and I’m deeply moved to be returning to contribute. VOLTAGE is a song meant to cheer people up and to inspire friends to overcome anything standing in their way. While it’s similar in many ways to Kara no Kokoro, I feel like this is even cooler than Boruto’s dad’s song! I hope everyone enjoys it.

    The new ending theme song will premiere with the new episode of Boruto airing on TV Tokyo on January 9, 2022.

  • Noseden Artline Festival 2021 Bringing Light, Sound, and Food to the Kawanishi Area

    21.September.2021 | FASHION / SPOT

    A celebration of light, sound, and food, the biennial Noseden Artline 2021 Festival will take place from October 30 until November 23, 2021. Set in one city and three towns along the Nose Electric Railway, the regional art event began in 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the rail line, and brings local artists and residents together. 

     

    The festival will be in Kawanishi and Inagawa in Hyogo Prefecture, as well as in Toyono and Nose in Osaka Prefecture, with Mt. Myoken marking the center point. Each part of the event will connect the history, industry, and tradition of the area with new and engaging creations. 

     

    The theme of the 2021 Noseden Artline Festival is ‘Enlarged Mentality.’ By taking things that are subjective, like an artist’s thoughts and senses, and applying them to the objective world that can be shared, it creates a one-of-a-kind way to connect fully with others. The event will feature local cuisine and music, as well as art focused on light, inspired by the North Star. After a year of solitude due to the pandemic, the festival hopes to remind people to cultivate, nourish, and preserve local relationships. 

     

    Art can make life more enjoyable, so why not come and see what the area has to offer?
