AKB48's sister idol group HKT48 are contributing their "Kataomoi no Karaage (Amakuchi Hime)" (One-Sided Love's Fried Chicken/Sweet Princess) as the ending theme song for the Japanese dub of Hasbro's animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The song is on "Suki! Suki! Skip!" — HKT48's debut CD single which just went on sale on Wednesday.
