posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 15th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing the new opening and ending theme songs for the Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyōshitsu) television anime on Monday. The new theme songs will debut in the anime starting in April.
The characters Nagisa (Mai Fuchigami), Kayano (Aya Suzaki), Karma (Nobuhiko Okamoto), Isogai (Ryota Ohsaka), and Maehara (Shintarō Asanuma) will perform the new opening theme song "Bye Bye Yesterday." The Japanese rock band Frederic wrote the song's lyrics. The same voice actors sang the first opening theme song, "QUESTION."
Shion Miyawaki will perform the new ending theme song "Mata Kimi ni Aeru Hi" (The Day When I Can Meet You Again). She also composed the lyrics. Miyawaki previously performed the first ending theme song, "Kaketa Tsuki."
An interview with the anime's director Seiji Kishi in Weekly Shonen Jump revealed last month that the anime will cover the manga's final chapter. The manga will end in the magazine's 16th issue, which will ship on March 19.
The anime's second season premiered on January 7, and Funimation is streaming the series as it airs in Japan. A second live-action film will open in Japan on March 25, and it will also portray the manga's ending.
Four unaired "Extracurricular Lesson" episodes premiered on Docomo's dTV streaming service on Friday.
Yusei Matsui launched the manga in July 2012. Shueisha shipped the manga's 18th compiled book volume on March 4, and will ship the 19th volume on April 4.
