Rock Band Fujifabric Performs 2nd Silver Spoon Opening
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the Silver Spoon anime announced on Saturday that the Japanese rock band Fujifabric is performing the second anime season's opening theme song "Life." The song's CD single will go on sale on February 12.
Sōichirō Yamauchi, the vocalist and guitarist for the band, said he read the manga over and over again ever since it was published. He considers it an honor to have "Live" chosen as the opening theme. Fujifabric also performed opening theme songs for Space Brothers and tsuritama.
Goose House began uploading original songs and music covers to video sites in 2011, and the videos have been viewed over 200 million times. The eight members all read Hiromu Arakawa's Silver Spoon farming manga.
The second Silver Spoon season based on Hiromu Arakawa's manga will premiere in Japan in January. The story follows Yūgo Hachiken, a city boy who enrolls at Ōezo Agricultural High School. While there he meets his classmates, all from farming families, while trying to find his own goals and dreams.
Aniplex USA licensed the series for home video, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. A live-action adaptation starring Sexy Zone band member Kento Nakajima and Alice Hirose will open in theaters on March 7.
