Niihama Leon

I’m Niihama Leon, who will be handling the opening theme! When I received this offer, I felt so happy and I can’t hold it inside of me!!
This song is quite speedy, so I’m sure it will help to heat up this favorite anime of mine!
Let’s run together with Hanzawa-san Leon!

Kuraki Mai

It has been announced that I will be handling the ending theme of “The Culprit Hanzawa”.
(Excited. Throbbing)
This song was created while getting close to the world setting together with the keyword of Hanzawa-san’s “suffocating voice of the heart”.
(I had tried my best in creating it, so it would make me happy if you will enjoy this…)
In term of the song, it is an emotional number with a mixture of traditional Japanese taste and the nostalgic pop song. (The cover is a photo of the cool Kuraki!? Please look forward to it.)
It would make me happy if you could enjoy this song together with the anime.
(There is also Shounen Sunday & manga volume, so please look forward to it♪)
