New song debuts in anime in January

The official website for the new GeGeGe no Kitaro anime revealed on Thursday that the band go! go! vanillas will perform the anime's new ending theme song "No.999." The new song will debut in the anime in January.

The anime entered a new arc on October 7 titled "Seiyō Yōkai-hen" (Western Yōkai Arc). The arc centers on the Western yōkai world's treasure, the "Ring of Arcana." A witch names Agnes steals the ring and flees. The Western yōkai's strongest emperor, Backbeard, and its followers follow Agnes to Japan. Agnes encounters Kitarō, and asks for his help.

The anime premiered on April 1 and replaced Dragon Ball Super in the same timeslot. The anime will run for 50+ episodes. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

Kouji Ogawa is serving as series director while Hiroshi Ohnogi (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) is handling series composition. Sorato Shimizu is the character designer and chief animation director. Yasuharu Takanashi (Fairy Tail) and -yaiba- (Naruto Shippuden) are composing the music. Fuji TV, Yomiuri Advertising, and Toei Animation are producing.

Kiyoshi Hikawa is performing the anime's current classic opening theme song "Gegege no Kitarō," and he is also performing the current ending theme song "Mien Keredomo, Orun da yo" (I Can't See Them But They're There).
