This year's 15th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that the singing duo ClariS will also contribute the new opening theme song for Nisekoi television anime series. The new song "Step" will begin playing in the anime in April, and its CD single will go on sale on April 16 in three editions. The limited-time anime edition will cost 1,250 yen (about US$12), while the limited first pressing will bundle a DVD for 1,500 yen (about US$15). The regular edition will cost 1,165 yen (US$11).
ClariS already performed "Click," the current theme song for Nisekoi since its January premiere.
The upcoming Weekly Shonen Jump issue is also displaying the jacket illustration for the first Blu-ray Disc & DVD volume. The limited complete pressing will include Digijacket packaging illustrated by character designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama, a bonus CD with the ending theme song "Heart Pattern" by Chitoge Kirisaki and the character radio program "Chitoge Kirisaki's Honban! __ Minutes Before!", the exclusive liner notes with an interview with chief director Akiyuki Shinbo, an exclusive poster, a clear case, pin-up illustrations of the end cards, audio commentaries by cast members Kouki Uchiyama/Nao Tōyama for episode 1 and ClariS/kz (Livetune) for episode 2, and an advance entry form for tickets to the June 22 event "Nisekoi Fes."
The anime revolves around Raku Ichijō (Kouki Uchiyama), a normal high school student who happens to be the heir to a yakuza group. The attractive but violent transfer student Chitoge Kirisaki (Nao Tōyama), the heir to a rival yakuza group, transfers to his class, and the two must pretend to date to keep a war from breaking out between their families.
