Shokotan to Perform Pokémon XY Anime's New Ending Song
posted on by Egan Loo
Singer/voice actress Shoko Nakagawa announced on Wednesday that she will perform "Doridori," the new ending theme song for the ongoing Pokemon XY television anime series. She made the surprise announcement during her first LINE Live show to promote her Shokotan Cover Ichibangai-hen CD release.
The song is inspired by the image of the character Serena, and Nakagawa co-wrote the lyrics with Yūho Iwasato. (The title comes from the song's lyric, "Dori-Dori Dream Power.") Kentarō Suzuki composed the music. The song will begin airing in the anime in the October 16 episode, but she will perform it for the first time during her Fall solo tour "Donyoku Kakumei" on October 12 and 13 at Tokyo's Zepp Diver City venue.
Although Wednesday's live show was only about 30 minutes long, it attracted about 100,000. In response to messages from online viewers on LINE, she sang the "JoJo ~Sono Chi no Sadame" song a cappella, complete with poses from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure anime.
