The official website for Zero no Tsukaima F, the fourth and final television anime series based on Noboru Yamaguchi's light novel series, confirmed on Tuesday that the lead character Louise (as voiced by Rie Kugimiya) is performing the ending theme song "Kiss Shite↑Agenai." The site also confirmed that Ichiko will return to sing the opening theme "I'll Be There For You."
Kugimiya sang the ending theme songs for the first three Zero no Tsukaima television anime series, while Ichiko sang the opening themes for the same projects.
Nippon Columbia will ship "Kiss Shite↑Agenai" in a special limited edition and in a regular edition on February 1, 2012. "I'll Be There For You" will also ship in a limited-edition CD+DVD bundle and in a regular edition on the same day. The anime itself will premiere next January.
Yamaguchi, the original Zero no Tsukaima light novelist, had reported in August that he left the hospital without incident after his surgery that month for cancer. He had been writing the light novels' final series arc (which Zero no Tsukaima F adapts), and had planned to end the light novels next year before his cancer diagnosis and subsequent operation.
