Mana Ashida Performs Jewelpet Kira☆Deco Theme Songs
posted on by Ko Ransom
Songs from the second single by seven-year-old actress Mana Ashida will be used as the opening and ending theme of Jewelpet Kira☆Deco, the 4th series in the Jewelpet series. "Zutto Zutto Tomodachi," the lead song of the single, will be used as the anime's ending as well as the theme song of the August Eiga Jewelpet Sweets Dance Princess film. Kira☆Deco's opening theme, "Happy Lucky☆Go!" will also be taken from the single. The new series will begin airing on April 7, and Ashida's single will be released on May 16.
Sanrio and Sega Toys launched their Jewelpet character and toy line in 2008, and the first Jewelpet anime followed a year later. Each Jewelpet toy is a stuffed animal; in the storyline, these pets belonged to magicians in "Jewelland" and can use magic themselves, thanks to their round jewel eyes. They study every day to learn how to use magic.
The Jewelpet franchise started out with 33 different creatures in 2008, but with the launch of the new television anime series, it will have 52 different characters. That includes 12 new Sweetspet creatures that are being introduced in the current Jewelpet Sunshine television anime series.
