The opening theme for the anime Hitorijime My Hero will be ‘Heart Signal’ by Wataru Hatano. It is scheduled to be released on 12 July 2017 as Hatano’s 8th single. The anime merchandise of Hitorijime My Hero will go on sale at the event Super Comic City 26 to promote the series before it starts airing this Summer 2017.
The opening is a cute and soft love song. The lyrics were written by shigeo. The arrangement and composition were done by Genki Hikota, who also worked on the ending song of Yuri!!! on ICE, ‘You Only Live Once’. The single will include a coupling song and the instrumentals of both songs. Those who purchase the artist version of the CD will also get a DVD with the music video of ‘Heart Signal.’ The price of the artist version is 1,800 yen (without tax), and the anime version 1,200 yen (without tax).
The cast for Hitorijime My Hero has not been revealed yet, but we wonder if Wataru Hatano will be involved in the cast.
Super Comic City 26 will be held at Tokyo Big Sight on 3-4 May 2017. At the character booth, you can purchase acrylic key holders from the series. It is a heart-shaped cute design and they will cost 620 yen (excl. tax). Flyers of crossplayers posing as Kousuke Oshiba, Masahiro Setagawa, Asaya Hasekura, and Kensuke Oshiba will be at the convention and you can also take a picture at the photo spot, where a drawing was specially made for this occasion.
Hitorijime My Hero is based on the original work of Memeko Arii, currently being serialized in gateau. It tells the story of four male characters and the relationships between them.
