We're also getting an English version of the song for the Western release.

Kankaku Piero made another good song, which is expected of them since they made the amazing Haruka Mirai, which I'm sure made people want to come back and watch Black Clover (the songs are its selling points).

I hope the version of he song you get is tied to the audio you choose.

I hope so to. While the English version is pretty good I do prefer the Japanese.

That's odd, they stopped doing that, after Graces F I think. And honestly I never thought most of them sounded right in English. Though with this one I'm not really digging the original either, so I suppose it doesn't matter. Nothing beats Starry Heavens from Symphonia.

To be honest as much as people gush over Ufotables Tales of openings, and yes they are good like Xillia. I miss Production I.G, they looked more natural and some really good sakuga.

Ufotable's animation is still godly as always.

The opening song is okay but I am surprised they are returning to doing English version of the OP. The singers of Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Graces opening did a great English version but this one is very "Engrish".

Pretty solid Opening, both animation and theme-wise! Also neat that there's an English version.

Hmmm, something about the entire opening sequence feels bog standard. Everything about it just feels like a functional "Tales of" opening sequence not helped with an ok song. Really, compared to ufotable's efforts with both Xillia titles, Zesteria (though I much prefer Zesteria the X's version), and Berseria where they knew where to punch up the bombastic scenes with the climax of the song, the song for Tales of Arise where they get to that climax feels rather limp for the anime scenes.
