Starmarie Idols Sing Cardfight!! Vanguard G's New Ending
posted on by Egan Loo
The idol group Starmarie is contributing a new ending theme song to the Cardfight!! Vanguard G television anime this summer. The "Mekurumeku Yūki" (Dazzling Bravery) song will begin playing in the anime' 37th episode on July 19. It will then ship on a CD single on August 19.
The group formed seven years ago, and the idols have already performed overseas at such events as Anime Expo 2013.
The "Mekurumeku Yūki" single will also include the song "Princess to Comedian" (The Princess and the Comedian), as well as instrumental versions of both tracks. It will ship in four different versions with different jacket covers, including one with an exclusive anime illustration. The four versions will also bundle one of four different Cardfight!! Vanguard G PR cards. In addition, the first copies of the single will include a code to unlock an item in the Cardfight!! Vanguard Cray Wars game app.
Based on Bushiroad's card game franchise, the Cardfight!! Vanguard G anime premiered last October. The story begins at Card Capital Shop No. 2, three years after the story in the earlier Cardfight!! Vanguard: Legion Mate-Hen anime. The main characters are Chrono Shindō (pictured below center, voiced by Mark Ishii), Shion Kiba (pictured left, Junya Enoki), and Tokoha Anjō (pictured right, Emi Nitta). Crunchyroll is streaming it with English subtitles, and YouTube is streaming it with an English dub.
