Part two, ‘Rise of the Red Comet’ is scheduled to come in 2018.
The trailer also introduces the theme song of the movie ‘I can’t do anything – Sora yo-‘, sung by Aya. Behind the name Aya is the enka singer Aya Shimazu, who used a different alias as the theme song is a pop song and is quite different from her usual repertoire. When director Yoshikazu Yasuhiko heard her voice, he made her an offer to do the theme song and she gladly accepted. It resulted in an amazing song, a ballad of powerful vocals that works perfectly for the series. Don’t miss your chance to listen to the song!
