posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the Tales of Symphonia the Animation project has revealed that Akiko Shikata will sing the ending theme and the "grand ending theme" for the third and final volume of The United World Episode series.
The ending theme song is titled "Hikari Kudaru Basho de ~Promesse~" (At the Place Where the Light Decends ~Promesse~) and the grand ending theme is titled "Kaze wa Haruka na Ashita wo Shiru" (The Wind Knows the Distant Tomorrow). Shikata sang the ending themes for the two previous United World episodes, and the ending theme song for the Tethe'alla episodes.
The limited-edition version of the final volume will retail for 8,820 yen (about US$111) and the regular edition will retail for 5,880 yen (about US$74). The final episode was originally slated to ship on July 25, but was delayed until October 24 to create a better quality product.
Tales of Symphonia the Animation: The United World Episode is the third and last original video anime series in Frontier Works' anime franchise inspired by Namco's Tales of Symphonia role-playing game. Only two United World volumes were previously announced before; the first volume shipped last November, and the second shipped on June 20.
The first four-volume Tales of Symphonia original video anime series shipped in 2007. Its four-volume sequel, Tales of Symphonia the Animation: Tethe'alla Episode, debuted in 2010.
