Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
The second season of March Comes in Like a Lion (3-gatsu no Lion) will start airing on 14 October 2017, adding 22 more episodes to the series. The series has revealed a new trailer and the opening and ending themes.
The OP will be sung by YUKI, the same artist who was in charge of the opening of the first season. The song will be titled ‘Flag wo Tatero’. The ED ‘Kafune’ will be sung by Brian the Sun. We have comments from both artists below the trailer.
I am so glad that I get to meet the characters from March Comes in Like a Lion again. I am happy. Thank you very much. Not everybody will be able to connect to it, but I think it is important to talk about how some actions one would think are good can be called ‘bullying’ by others. Just like Hina-chan in the series, one day I realized I had no place that I belonged to in the classroom and just tried to not stick out. I decided to become the king of my own world. I listened to songs and looked at pictures and fled into the world of music. To fly in the sky, make dead flowers bloom again, live in a house made of sweets… To create a world one could only find through songs was the only way to save myself. I didn’t live well. Even now, I am still looking for a place where I can stick my flag, marking it as my space. And that’s who ‘Flag wo Tatero’ is connected to the series as well as my own feelings.
I think that Rei knows how lonely and hard it is to fight with something huge that only he himself can see. It is the fear and anxiety he feels within, and at the back of it, love starts to sprout. That’s what I felt throughout the work. I like how the series is built, how the love is slowly growing inside the characters, and how one mistake will not make you evil. To keep the balance of this delicate story, we wrote a softer song. We are honored to be involved in March Comes in Like a Lion!
