Chika Umino may be best known for his delightful Honey and Clover, but his Fall 2016 anime 3-gatsu no Lion is one of the most anticipated titles of the season.
According to the production company, the opening theme song for the anime will be Answer by BUMP OF CHICKEN.
BUMP OF CHICKEN is a famous rock band that enjoys solid support mainly from the younger audience and they have so far given their songs to popular anime and video games such as ONE PIECE and Doraemon. Their vocalist, Motoo Fujiwara, is a known anime freak. He has written a love song (Arue) for Rei Ayanami from Evangelion.
Answer is going to be a medium-tempo song with an impressive, beautiful guitar riff. The ending theme song Fighter is also written by BUMP OF CHICKEN.
