This year's 27th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine announced on Wednesday that the rock band CreepHyp is performing "Ainii," the new opening theme song for the RIN-NE 2 television anime series. The band's official website added on Wednesday that the theme song will begin playing in episode 38 on July 2.
The four-member band formed in 2001 as a three-member band, but after two members left in September 2008, three new members joined for the current lineup in November 2009. The new group then made their major debut in 2012. The band's theme song for RIN-NE 2 will mark the first time they are contributing a theme song for an anime.
RIN-NE 2 is the second anime series based on Rumiko Takahashi's RIN-NE (Kyōkai no Rinne) manga. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the second season, and the anime is currently streaming on The Anime Network and Crunchyroll. The anime premiered in Japan on April 9.
The first television anime series premiered in April 2015 on the public broadcaster NHK's E-Tele channel. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for release in North America.
