Hiroshi Kamiya, Miyu Irino Perform Karneval Ending Theme
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Voice actors Hiroshi Kamiya and Miyu Irino will perform the ending theme for April's Karneval anime series. The duo will perform the song "REASON" under the name KAmiYU, a combination of both parties' names. The announcement was first made at Sunday's Karneval Kaimaku Kōen event.
Kamiya and Irino previously sang together as KAmiYU in the Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G video project, released a single in 2010 titled "Kokoro no Tobira," and released the mini-album "link-up" in 2011.
Kamiya is starring in Karneval as pick-pocket Gareki opposite Hiro Shimono as Nai. Irino starred in the Karneval drama CD "Tobenai Tsubasa/Ningyo no Bin" as Yotaka.
Touya Mikanagi's original manga follows Nai, a naïve boy searching for someone important to him, with only an abandoned bracelet as a clue. He encounters the pickpocket Gareki when the two meet in a strange mansion. Soon they find themselves part of a setup, becoming wanted criminals by military security operatives. When all hope seems lost, the two are introduced to none other than the country's most powerful defense organization, "Circus."
Eiji Suganuma (Kodomo no Jikan, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ninja Cadets, Sasameki Koto) is directing the series at Manglobe (Deadman Wonderland, Hayate the Combat Butler: Can't Take My Eyes Off You, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers, Ergo Proxy) and Touko Machida (THE [email protected], Lucky Star, Amnesia) is handling the scripts. Toshie Kawamura (Yes! Precure 5, Smile Precure!, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers) is serving as the character designer and chief animation director for the series.
The television series is scheduled to premiere this spring.
