I have learned a lot of things throughout playing the role of Asta in Black Clover, and I could have built up a lot of experiences. I want to repay Black Clover in some other form.

I have been very passionate in making the single, so please listen to the details as well!

Jul. 9 is the anniversary of the death of Johnny Kitagawa, the founder of Johnny's.
Johnny's has greatly influenced the entertainment industry not only in Japan but also all over the world, and they are also an essential part of the anime/anime song industry.
Speaking of anime songs by Johnny's artists, many of you may think of "Yuuki 100%" from "Nintama Rantarou".
However, including the theme song for the currently running TV anime "The Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited", many anime songs have been sung by them.
This is an article looking back at the history of Johnny's × Anime Songs!
We will take you back through the ages to check out some of the best songs matching the world of anime.
2020s: An unknown artist appears!
One of the most recent memorable anime songs by Johnny's is "NAVIGATOR" by SixTONES, which is used as the opening theme of the currently airing "The Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited".
At the time of the first broadcast, the artist's name was hidden, and everybody was making guesses on social media.
The trilling, cool tune has enough impact to blow away the image of Johnny's songs being idol-like. Many of you may have fascinated by their style of them appealing their music with their name kept hidden.
Also, "Black Clover" 11th cour's opening theme "Stories" was sung by Snow Man. One of the members, Sakuma Daisuke-san, loves anime, and fans were delighted that his dream came true.
The speedy intro and the positive lyrics of overcoming conflicts and moving forward complement the opening of the anime perfectly.
2010s: Family-friendly Johnny's anime song
In 2017, "Fantastic time", the opening theme of "Time Bokan24", was sung by Hey! Say! JUMP. The catchy tune will make you want to start dancing.
The opening theme of the 2nd cour "OVER THE TOP", which had a matureness and a melody that heats up at the hook, was also sung by Hey! Say! JUMP.
The sequel "Time Bokan: The Villains' Strike Back" 1st cour in 2018 had KinKi Kids singing a jazzy tune "DESTINY", which was inspired by the 3 villains.
They also sang "Topaz Love" for the ending theme of the 2nd cour, reminding us of youthful love.
In 2015, NEWS sang "Yonjuushi" as the opening theme for "The Kindaichi Case Files R". It has a taste of classical music, creating tension and grandness which perfectly matches the suspenseful story.
The anime also had "TRAGEDY" by KAT-TUN as its opening theme in 2016. Words that remind you of mysteries, such as "hints" and "doubt", are scattered in the lyrics, making it one of the songs with the strongest relationship with the anime.
The Saturday evening anime slot in which the "Time Bokan" series and "The Kindaichi Case Files R" were broadcast, has many songs by Johnny's artists loved across generations.
2000s: From films to TV series!
In 2006, "Sayaendou" by NEWS was used as the theme song of "One Piece The Movie: Giant Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle". The steelpan's in the song gave it a tropical tone, and the lyrics such as "skull" and "one piece" perfectly fits the film.
"One Piece" has teamed up with Johnny's on its TV series too. "Crazy Rainbow" (2007) by Tackey & Tsubasa, "Super Powers" (2019) by V6 were used as the opening theme, and "Mirai Koukai" (2005) by Tackey & Tsubasa was used as the ending theme.
"Inuyasha", which started in 2000, is also a treasure trove of anime songs by Jonny's. "CHANGE THE WORLD" (2000) by V6, "One Day, One Dream" (2004) by Tackey & Tsubasa, and many other songs were used for the anime.
In addition, "Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kouen-mae Hashutsujo" in 2002 had Arashi singing "Nice na Kokoroiki" for the opening theme and "Naruto: Shippuden" in 2008 had MATCHY with QUESTION?, a special team of Johnny's band and Kondou Mahsahiko, singing "Mezamero! Yasei". The 2000s had many shonen-manga-based anime collaborating with Johnny's.
1990s: The classic anime song "Yuuki 100%" was born!
One of the most famous Johnny's anime songs from the 1990s is "Yuuki 100%", the opening theme song of the TV anime "Nintama Rantarou, which began in 1993. Since Hikaru GENJI sang it as the opening theme, many groups followed, including Ya-Ya-yah and Hey! Say! JUMP.
The insert songs and ending themes of "Nintama Rantarou" were also sung by many Johnny's groups, such as "Hohoemi wo Azukete" (1993) by Hikaru GENJI and "Sekai ga Hitotsu ni Narumade" (2002) by Ya-Ya-yah.
In 1994, SMAP sang the opening theme song "Kimiiro Omoi" for "Akazukin Chacha". The positive lyrics about never giving up on love left a strong impression.
SMAP also sang "Egao no Genki" as the opening theme and "Burabura Sasete" as the ending theme for "Hime-chan's Ribbon" in 1992, showing how well their songs match shojo-manga-based anime.
TOKIO also worked on many songs for various genres of anime, including "Hear wo Migakukkyanai" as the opening theme of "Soar High! Isami" and "Uwasa no Kiss" as the ending theme of "Kiteretsu Daihyakka".
Their debut song "LOVE YOU ONLY" was also used as the opening theme of the TV anime "Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai", which was broadcast from 1992. The fresh singing voice and lyrics about honest love added grace to the anime.
1980s and before: Johnny's anime songs hand in hand with TV anime!
There are many Johnny's anime songs before "Nintama Rantarou" and "Hime-chan's Ribbon".
For example, Eagles sang "Eagle Sam no March", the opening theme of "Eagle Sam" in the 1980s. There were a total of 4 theme songs for "Eagle Sam" and they were all sung by Eagles.
Going back even further, Four Leaves sang the opening theme "Denshi Choujin U Bird" and the ending theme "Ginga Trio no Uta" for "Birdman and the Galaxy Trio", in the 1960s, when TV anime just stated.
Anime and Johnny's have a long history together.
These are only a few of the Johnny's anime songs. Some of you may be surprised to find out that these songs were by Johnny's.
Listening to the songs you already know, after you find out they were from anime, could bring you new discoveries.

The 3rd season of the TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" has started broadcast on Oct. 12. In the first episode, new sextuplets that are suitable for the Reiwa era had appeared. Comments from the cast members, including Hanae Natsuki, Ishikawa Kaito, Shimazaki Nobunaga, and others, who played the new sextuplets, have arrived.
The TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" is based on Akatsuka Fujio's famous gag manga "Osomatsu-kun". It is a story about sextuplets who are the main characters becoming sloppy adults called useless neets.
As usual, the 1st episode is an unprecedent story that develops from current affairs to harsh black jokes. Among them, the appearance of "new sextuplets" became a hot topic on the SNS. The setting art is the same as the usual sextuplets, but they appear more stylish in the hoodie and tuxedo..
Instead of the old sextuplets, the new characters that fit the Reiwa era that appeared, are voiced by current popular voice actors. Hanae Natsuki as the new Osomatsu, Ishikawa Kaito as the new Karamatsu, Shimazaki Nobunaga as the new Choromatsu, Matsuoka Yoshitsugu as the new Ichimatsu, Uchida Yuma as the new Juushimatsu, and Murase Ayumu as the new Todomatsu.
Moreover, comments from the new cast of the sextuplets have arrived. After recording the 1st episode, Hanae said, "I had a mysterious sense of accomplishment ", Uchida added after reading the script, "I ended up appearing in a ridiculous work", and other BTS (behind-the-scene) comments have been received.
The 3rd season of the TV anime series "Mr. Osomatsu" is currently being broadcast on TV Tokyo and other channels.
New Osomatsu: Hanae Natsuki
I was thinking about what role I've got, but when I opened the script, I immediately closed it because I didn't understand a single thing. I went along with the flow during the recording for the 1st episode. There were some ambiguous moments which I didn't really understand
New Karamatsu: Ishikawa Kaito
Even before I became a voice actor, I loved Nakamura Yuichi's acting and longed do the same thing. Right now, while working as a voice actor with the support and interactions with many people, I have the opportunity to meet with Nakamura-san, but I do not know that my admiration will remain. When I heard about the cast and about the role of new Karamatsu, I thought about being the successor of Karamatsu-san played by Nakamura-san. Together with the Nakamura-san's acting nuance from the personality of Karamatsu, I expanded the image of Yu-chan in myself to the limit and opened the script in a perfect posture.
The first line was, "What is this...". The second was "Not good...". It didn't make much sense.
All the emotions other than interesting were blown away by the sense of this work. Bye bye.
New Choromatsu: Shimazaki Nobunaga
As expected, no, it was more than what I had expected. After reading the script of the first episode, I couldn't stop laughing. The casts of the new sextuplets are also wonderful members, and I enjoyed the recording sessions very much. It was an honor for me to be entrusted as the new Choromatsu.
New Ichimatsu: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu
I played, thinking, "Maybe this is a future of 'Osomatsu-kun'?" Please check out our version of "Mr. Osomatsu"
As for the impression of the first episode, I was surprised... It's messed up (laugh)
After the recording was over, I felt comfortable and strangely tired (laugh).
New Juushimatsu: Uchida Yuma
After seeing the previous seasons for reference, I read the script for the first episode... This guy is hopeless. I ended up appearing in a ridiculous work. References from previous seasons are no longer helpful (laugh)
What exactly is "Mr. Osomatsu"?
I hope you will find the answer in this 3rd season.
New Todomatsu: Murase Ayumu
I watch it in advance and felt the energy and fun of the work, so I honestly felt the pressure from acting the new sextuplets (laugh).
At the same time, I was happy to be honored and entrusted with that role.
The recording itself was quite fun, so I hope it will leave an everlasting impression on everyone!
