17-Year-Old Ami Wajima Sings Kuromukuro's New Ending
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the Kuromukuro television anime announced on Friday that artist Ami Wajima is singing the anime's new ending theme song, "Eien Loop" (Eternal Loop). The 17-year-old from the Hokkaido town of Kutchan already made her professional debut with "Gensō Drive," the opening theme for the Spring 2016 anime The Lost Village.
Kuromukuro's new ending will play in the anime's second cour (quarter of the year), starting with episode 14. The single for the new ending song will go on sale on August 10, and a limited first edition will add a DVD with the song's music video.
Wajima won the top prize in the HoriPro x Pony Canyon Next Generation Anison Singer Audition this year.
The anime's story takes place in summer 2016. During the original construction of the dam, an ancient artifact was discovered, and so the United Nations Kurobe Research Institute was established. Intellectuals from all over the world gathered to study the object, and the children of those researchers attend Mt. TATE International Senior High School, including the institute head's daughter, Yukina Shirahane. The story begins when a lone samurai once again awakens amid an attack.
Snow Grouse is credited with the original work. Tensai Okamura (Darker than Black, Blue Exorcist, Wolf's Rain, The Seven Deadly Sins) is directing the "mecha action" anime at P.A. Works. Ryou Higaki (Another, Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit) is handling the series composition, and Yuriko Ishii (Another, A Lull in the Sea) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director with Ayumi Nishibata. Tomoaki Okada (Darker than Black, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Star Driver, Wolf's Rain) is credited with visual concepts and mecha designs. Hiroaki Tsutsumi is composing the music at Pony Canyon.
The anime premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX on April 7, and Netflix has the exclusive worldwide streaming rights to the anime. The service began streaming the anime with English subtitles in Japan in April.
