Luck Life to Perform Cheer Boys!! TV Anime's Opening Theme
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
Japanese rock band Luck Life will perform the opening theme song "Hajime no Ippo" (First Step). Luck Life previously performed the ending theme song "Namae wo Yobu yo" (Call Out the Name) for the currently airing Bungo Stray Dogs anime. The seven main cast members of the anime will perform the ending theme song "LIMIT BREAKERS" under the unit name BREAKERS.
The cast of the anime includes:
Yūki Yonai as Haruki Bandō, a freshman in college who was born into a family of Judo martial artists, but quit because of the pressure. He joined the cheerleading club after being invited by Kazuma. He takes a while to warm up to people.
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Kazuma Hashimoto, Haru's childhood friend and the person who understands him the most. He formed the cheerleading club because his late parents used to do cheerleading.
Yūki Ono as Shō Tokugawa, a cheerleading expert who gives off an aura of handsomeness. He gives his harsh opinions to the newly-started cheerleading club. His only problem is that his sense in clothing is awful.
Tomokazu Sugita as Wataru Mizoguchi, the son of a high-class Japanese restaurant owner. His looks don't deceive: he has a stiff body and horrible rhythm. He often quotes famous figures.
Yuu Hayashi as Kōji Tōno, a young man who weighs 100 kilograms and has no experience with sports whatsoever, but joins the cheerleading club because he wants to change. His nickname is Ton.
Kōsuke Kuwano as Sōichirō Suzuki, a young man whose special skill is speaking in a Kansai dialect. Having played only baseball throughout high school, he is very skilled in athletics. His nickname is Ichirō.
The series will premiere in July.
Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee manga creator Hiroyuki Asada is providing the original character designs for the series. Ai Yoshimura (Blue Spring Ride, Dance with Devils) is directing the series at Brains Base, and Reiko Yoshida (Girls und Panzer, Haruchika – Haruta & Chika) is handling the series composition. Hitomi Tsuruta is adapting Asada's designs for animation and is also serving as chief animation director.
The youth novel revolves around the "slightly odd and cute" members of a cheerleading squad at a men's university. Shueisha published the novel in 2013.
