Lyricist Yuriko Mori (Inuyasha's "Come," Tactics' "Secret World" and "Mienai Chikara," Zero no Tsukaima's "Honto no Kimochi" and "Suki? Kirai!? Suki!!!") revealed in a December 6 blog entry that the opening theme song has been recorded for a previously unannounced anime called Crystal Blaze, which will premiere in Japan in April. According to Mori, the adult-oriented story is set in New York, which is also where the opening theme's recording session took place. The vocalist "Rie-san" sang the jazzy song, which was composed by Kōsuke Makino (Zero no Tsukaima's "Two Moons" and "Crescent no Inori," Rocket Girls' "Rise") and arranged by Riki Arai (Zero no Tsukaima's "I Say Yes" and "Suki? Kirai!? Suki!!!"). The session also included Happinet producer Tomoko Shibuya (music director for Full Metal Panic!, Key the Metal Idol, Rocket Girls) and recording engineer Hisao Iemori.
