The artists responsible for singing the opening and ending themes of the 4th season of the anime “My Hero Academia”, have been announced.
The new songs picturing the new story, the School Festival Arc, have artists KANA-BOON singing the opening theme and Ryokuoushoku Shakai on the the ending theme. Both bands commented on the announcement.
KANA-BOON are a three-member rock band that has just begun a new chapter in their career following restructuration in the band. The first song recorded with the new set-up is titled “Star Marker” and is set to be the new opening theme for the new story of “My Hero Academia”.
Ryokuoushoku Shakai is a 4-piece band with its popularity on the rise. The philosophy behind their song for the ending theme titled “Shout Baby” is “Even though a future full of struggle awaits us, I want to become stronger, I want to change”.
Both the opening theme “Star Marker” and the ending theme “Shout Baby” embodies the new story arc of the series that will be aired on Jan. 25, 2020.
KANA-BOON's single containing the song “Star Marker” is set to be released on Mar. 4. Ryokuoushoku Shakai's “Shout Baby” will be streamed on Feb. 8, while the single will be released on Feb. 19.

People leave splashes of colors painted in the past. Among them, there are various tones varying from the darker to the hotter ones. Eventually, the day will come where you can change the meaning behind these colors and could even over-painted your entire past with a full rainbow-colored future. You are the only person who can save yourself. You are the hero. I wrote this song hoping this song could be your main theme.

In our everyday lives, it's easy to get caught up in negative emotions. Even if a future full of challenges lies ahead, there's an undying hope inside us. You'll never know until you try. Just wield your biggest weapon, your will to change and become stronger. Muster up that inner voice and use it as energy. There isn't a single hero that had it figured out since the start. My wish for this song is to grow stronger alongside the story and more important, alongside you.
