The official YouTube channel for idol group Momoiro Clover Z began streaming on Friday an animated music video for their new cover song "Odoru Ponpokorin," which is the new opening theme song for the long-running Chibi Maruko-chan anime series. The music video is a full version of the opening animation and features members of Momoiro Clover Z as anime characters.
Momoiro Clover Z's new single "Odoru Ponpokorin" will include the animated music video when it ships on August 28. Momoiro Clover Z are the ambassadors for the anime's 30th anniversary.
The anime first aired from 1990 to 1992, followed by an ongoing second season that debuted in 1995. The series is consistently the #2 rated anime series after Sazae-san.
Momoiro Clover Z have performed theme songs for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F', Bodacious Space Pirates, and Pokémon: Black and White. The grou's four members — Kanako Momota, Shiori Tamai, Ayaka Sasaki, and Reni Takagi — appeared in a episode of Layton Mystery Tanteisha: Katori no Nazotoki File in February.
