The song will be aired as the new opening theme starting Sunday, September 29th.

Comment from Jean-Ken Johnny

WE HAVE THE PLEASURE OF TAKING ON THE OPENING THEME OF Vinland Saga ANIME SERIES.

IT IS A VERY EPIC STORY OF VENGEANCE SET IN THE MEDIEVAL VIKING ERA; IT IS ALSO A HEROIC TALE THAT GOES BEYOND REVENGE. AS A GUY, IT IS AN HONOR FOR ME TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BE A PART OF SUCH A COOL WORK. I'D BE GLAD IF YOU COULD ENJOY “Dark Crow” ALONG WITH THE ANIME.

Second track “86 Missed Calls feat. Patrick Stump” has been selected as the theme song for 3 Nobunagas, which hits theaters Friday, September 20. This track features Patrick Stump. At Summer Sonic Tokyo this past August 17, Patrick made a surprise appearance during MAN WITH A MISSION's set and together they premiered “86 Missed Calls feat. Patrick Stump” in front of a jam-packed audience, which created huge buzz and set the momentum for this much anticipated release.

Third track “Reiwa feat. milet” marks the first song for MAN WITH A MISSION to collaborate with a female artist, milet, who is immensely popular these days. The collaboration came to fruition as the band had been fascinated with milet's crystal voice and made a passionate request to her.

Comment from Kamikaze Boy

WHEN I FIRST HEARD milet'S VOICE, I KNEW THAT HERE WAS ANOTHER ARTIST WHO WOULD PERSONIFY AND LEAD THE NEW ERA. THIS TIME, UPON MAKING THE NEW SONG “Reiwa”, SOMEHOW I HAD milet'S VOICE OVERLAPPING THE IMAGE OF THE SONG WHILE COMPOSING THE MELODY. SO I TALKED ABOUT IT WITH EVERYONE AND TOOK THE COURAGE TO ASK HER.

AS SOON AS milet'S VOICE WAS IN THE SONG, I FELT THAT SOMETHING LIKE AN ENTHUSIASM OF A NEW ERA WAS BREATHED INTO THE SONG. I ALREADY LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY THAT WE PERFORM TOGETHER NOT ONLY ON AUDIO BUT ALSO ON STAGE AND DELIVER THE SONG DIRECTLY TO YOU ALL!!

Comment from milet

When I first heard “Reiwa”, my heart was swayed by the straightforward and tenderly enveloping voice and the epic and powerful sound that gave me an image of a bright and dazzling world opening up wide. I sang the song making the wish for peace and enjoying the happiness of living in the new era of Reiwa. And I am simply happy that I was able to blend into the sound of MAN WITH A MISSION, a band that have always been my big favorite. Please look forward to the fusion of MAN WITH A MISSION and milet.

Track #4 “My Hero [Slushii Remix]” is a remix by Slushii, a soon-to-breakthrough EDM DJ who is a Japanophile and an avid Japanese anime fan.
