The new ending theme to the second cour of the anime 3-Gatsu no Lion will be orion by Kenshi Yonezu. The new song will debute on the episode airing on January 7, 2017.
We also have a comment from Yonezu, in which he explains his feelings behind the song.
[Comment from Kenshi Yonezu]
‘I first read 3-Gatsu no Lion a few years ago, and my impression was “I’ve seen this scenery somewhere before.” At the time I was living in Tsukishima, which is one of the settings for the manga. I remember being surprised that a manga was set so close to where I used to live.
When I was writing the song I kept thinking about what I had in common with Rei, or how I could express the warmth of the Kawamoto household. It might be a little trivial, but I was happy to be able to take on this part of the story.’
The current ending theme, BUMP OF CHICKEN’s Fighter, is overflowing in momentum and grandeur, and it really permeates your heart and soul. We really liked Kenshi Yonezu’s collaboration with Yasutaka Nakata for the movie Nanimono, but we look forward to hear what kind of ending theme he has come up with!
