posted on by Egan Loo
Yuikaori, the musical duo of voice actresses Yui Ogura and Kaori Ishihara, are releasing "Ring Ring Rainbow!!" on August 5 as their second new single of 2015. The title track, a high-tempo rock tune, will be the opening theme song for the television anime of Ayumu Kasuga's four-panel manga Jōkamachi no Dandelion (Castle Town Dandelion). The two voice actresses are also voicing Hikari and Kanade Sakurada in the anime.
The limited first run of the single will include a DVD with the music video for "Ring Ring Rainbow!!" as well as a making-of video. The single itself will have a second song to be announced later, as well as the two songs without vocal tracks.
In the manga's story, the everyday lives of the nine super-powered siblings of the royal family are monitored by more than 200 surveillance cameras and broadcast nationwide. The people of the nation who are watching the broadcast will have the ability to elect the next monarch. The story focuses on Akane, the third-oldest sister who can manipulate gravity. She is shy and desperately does not want to be caught on camera.
The anime will premiere in July.
