The October issue of Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine is announcing on Wednesday that singer Tommy Hiroaki Tominaga and British rock band Yes are contributing the opening and ending theme songs, respectively, for the new Jojo's Bizarre Adventure television anime series.
Kouhei Tanaka (One Piece opening) composed the original song "JoJo ~Sono Chi no Sadame~" for the anime's opening theme with lyrics by Shouko Fujibayashi (Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos, Angel Heart) and arrangement by Kô Ôtani (Ashita no Nadja, Haibane Renmei). The CD will go on sale on November 21 for 735 yen.
For the ending theme, the anime is using the classic 1971 song "Roundabout" by Yes. Band members Jon Anderson and Steve Howe wrote the lyrics and music for this song.
The anime itself will premiere at 24:30 on October 5 (effectively 12:30 a.m. on October 6) on the Tokyo MX TV station.
