The official Twitter account for the idol unit AŌP announced on Sunday that they will be performing the opening theme for the upcoming second season of the Mr. Osomatsu anime. The song's name will be "Zenryoku batankyū." The song's single will ship on February 10.
AŌP performed the first season's opening, "Hanamaru pippi wa yoiko dake." The group also performed theme songs for Ace of Diamond and Insufficient Direction.
The anime's official Twitter account also revealed on Sunday that the anime will have seven upcoming drama CDs. The drama CDs will go on sale monthly starting in February.
The official Twitter account for the Mr. Osomatsu anime announced last month that the series will run for two consecutive seasons. The second half will begin in January.
The series premiered on October 5. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
Fujio Akatsuka's original Osomatsu-kun manga and "high tension comedy" TV anime centered on the Matsuno household, which has six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets). All of the sextuplets, including the eldest Osomatsu, are all in love with the same girl, Totoko. The original series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old. The show re-imagines the original manga and TV anime with the sextuplets as adults.
Akatsuka launched the Osomatsu-kun manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in 1962, and the manga ran in the magazine until 1969. The manga then ran in Weekly Shonen King from 1972-1973, and then in Comic BonBon from 1987-1990. The compiled manga volumes have more than 10 million copies in print.
