Back-On, May J. to Perform Fairy Tail Anime's New Songs
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 29th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that rock band Back-On and singer May J. are performing the new theme songs for the Fairy Tail television anime this summer. Back-On (Air Gear, Eyeshield 21, Gundam Build Fighters) is contributing the opening song "Strike Back," while May J. is singing "Kokoro no Kagi" (Heart's Key).
Although both musical acts are still working on their songs, they gave comments about them to Fairy Tail fans. Back-On said that the message of their song is, "There's no such thing as an unalterable future, so live in the present and change the future!" May J. said that her song is about the importance of believing in cherished friends and walking towards the future.
BoA and Breathe perform the current set of theme songs ("Masayume Chasing" or Prophetic Dream Chasing and "Kimi to Kare to Boku to Kanojo to" or You, He, Me, and She) for the anime, which returned in April. Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
