The official website for the Hōzuki no Reitetsu anime announced on Sunday that Sumire Uesaka (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!, Nobunagun) is performing the ending theme song "Enma Daiō ni Kiitegoran" (Try to Listen to King Enma) for the original anime DVDs (OADs).

Uesaka performed the "Parallax View" ending theme song for the Hōzuki no Reitetsu television anime. She also voices the supernatural series' character Peach Maki.
The 17th, 18th, and 19th volumes of Natsumi Eguchi's original manga will include the OADs in limited-edition bundles. Advance screening that combine the three episodes will be held in 11 theaters throughout Japan from December 6 to 28.
