We are in charge of the theme song for Ultraman Arc, and we produced it with great joy and excitement. We have loved Ultraman since we were children, and we are deeply moved and grateful that it has continued to give dreams and courage to Japanese children for nearly 60 years.

For us in 2024, we strongly relate to Arc, which encourages dreaming and imagination, and we expressed those feelings directly in the song. We hope that listeners will feel our respect and positive feelings for Ultraman through it.

A group consisting of Daisuke Asakura and Hiroyuki Takami. They attracted attention immediately after their debut in November 1992, and a year later, in 1993, their Budokan concert sold out on the same day.

Furthermore, the following year, in 1994, their 3rd album DELICATE PLANET took the top spot on the charts. Within two years of their debut, they released three albums and eleven singles at a rapid pace, gaining enthusiastic support.

Although they took a break from activities starting in 1995, they resumed in 2002 after a seven-year hiatus. Since then, they have continued to steadily pursue their activities, consistently showcasing innovative and ever-evolving music production and live performances.

We, ARCANA PROJECT, are in charge of the ending theme for Ultraman Arc. We are delighted to be involved with a household name like Ultraman. “Meramera” (meaning “blaze up” in Japanese) is a song that burns as bright as the sun, and we believe it will resonate with the hearts of those who are pursuing their dreams. We've infused it with the message that you can carve the future with your own hands. The dance is so lively that you'll find yourself wanting to imitate it, so we hope you do! As ARCANA PROJECT, we'll burn as passionately as the sun and unleash our imaginations to make Ultraman Arc a great success!
