VTuber Shibuya HAL to Perform Ending Theme for The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting Anime Series
VTuber Shibuya HAL has been announced as the ending theme artist for the upcoming The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting anime series.
Shibuya HAL is known for streaming first-person shooters, but he’s also popular for his singing streams and videos, often performing popular tracks and participating in cover song projects.
The opening song for the series, Mirai no Hero Tachi e, will be performed by YouTuber Sho Takeyaki.

Shibuya HAL’s sweet and gentle voice matches perfectly with the new song, which is sure to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
Comment from Shibuya HAL
I’m Shibuya HAL, and I’ve been put in charge of the ending theme for The Yakuza’s Guide to Babysitting!
When I received the offer, I freaked out. “The ending theme for an anime? I’m super excited, but I’m way too nervous for such a big role!” But ANCHOR did a wonderful job on the song, and when I heard the finished soundtrack, I thought to myself, “I’m looking forward to this being played!”
I’m much looking forward to the start of the broadcast when we can finally see the characters moving around!
