posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the new GeGeGe no Kitarō anime revealed on Saturday that Rekishi, musician Takafumi Ikeda's "solo unit," will perform the new ending theme song "Get A Note" (pronounced "Geta no Oto," which translates to "The Sound of Geta Footwear") for the show. The new theme song will debut in the show on July 1. The song will be Rekishi's first anime tie-in song, and it will be a rock song featuring the sound of geta in the background (geta are the type of footwear the titular Kitarō wears in the show).
