The official website for the television adaptation of Shimabukuro's Toriko manga series has announced that voice actress and singer Nana Mizuki will perform the next ending theme for the series. Mizuki's song "Lovely Fruit" will begin being aired as part of the broadcast with its October 7 episode. The website describes the song as one with Mizuki's "cute vocals" and a "hyper pop sound" that will energize its listeners.
Previous artists for Toriko's ending theme include Ftisland, Tomohisa Yamashita, and Hyadain. The series is streaming in North America via Funimation and Hulu. In the story, the title character Toriko is a "Bishokuya" (gourmet food provider) who travels the world to hunt down the animals and plants needed for the finest cuisine dishes.
In August, Mizuki's single "Bright Stream" reached #2 on the Oricon weekly sales charts for music singles, her eighteenth top-ten single.
