BUMP OF CHICKEN returns with "Gekkō" theme song

The official website for the television anime of Kazuhiro Fujita's Karakuri Circus (Le Cirque de Karakuri) manga began streaming the sixth promotional video for the anime on Friday. The video reveals that BUMP OF CHICKEN will return with the song "Gekkō" (Moonlight Rainbow) as the ending theme song for the anime's third cours (quarter of a year). The song was previously used as the anime's first opening song. The video previews the song.

Lozareena performs the anime's third opening song "Over me." The anime premiered on Amazon in Japan last October. Amazon Prime is exclusively streaming the anime in Japan and overseas.

Amazon describes the story:

After inheriting the family fortune, eleven-year-old Masaru Saiga is targeted by kidnappers armed with bizarre and deadly puppets. He escapes once aided by circus employee Narumi Kato, but the kidnappers soon catch up with them. Just when all seems lost, the two are saved by the mysterious Shirogane who wields her own marionette. From then on, the trio's fates become inexorably intertwined...

Studio VOLN (Ushio & Tora, Idol Incidents) is animating the television anime series for Twin Engine. Satoshi Nishimura (Ushio & Tora, Trigun, Fighting Spirit) is directing the series, and Takahiro Yoshimatsu (2011 Hunter × Hunter, Trigun) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Toshiki Inoue (Ushio & Tora, Death Note) and original manga author Kazuhiro Fujita are handling the series scripts. Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!) is composing the music.
