Bungō Stray Dogs

Bungō Stray Dogs

Bungō Stray Dogs

Episode 14 of Bungō Stray Dogs, which airs today will debut the new ending song ‘Kaze ga Fuku Machi’ as sung by the band Luck Life. This is Luck Life’s third major label single. Luck Life started out in 2005 formed by a group of high school friends PON (on vocals and guitar), Ikoma (guitar and chorus), Taku (bass), and LOVE Oishi (drums). They also did the Bungō Stray Dogs first ending song for Namae wo Yobuyo (I Call Your Name) as well as the Cheer Boys!! Opening song and the ending song for Junjō Romantica 3.

In the first season of Bungō Stray Dogs, we met Nakajima Atsushi, just kicked out of his orphanage, standing by a river, on the brink of starvation, and there he rescued a man who was attempting suicide. That man was Dazai Osamu and a member of a special detective agency that deals with cases that are too dangerous for the police or the military. We met a lot of interesting characters all based on literary legends and this second cour of the anime introduced characters such as Francis F., Margaret M., Nathaniel H. John S, Lovecraft, and Mark T, also based on classic writers. A preview of Luck Life’s new ending song ‘Kaze ga Fuku Machi’ has been posted by Lantis. Watch it here

Kiss Him, Not Me

Kiss Him, Not Me

Kiss Him, Not Me

Voice actress and vocalist Rie Murakawa’s second single ‘Doki Doki no Kaze’, the ending theme for the anime Kiss Him, Not me is to be released on November 2nd. She is known for her voice acting in anime such as Fairy Tail (Coco), Log Horizon 2 (Rieze), and Show by Rock!! (Jacqueline). The anime Kiss Him, Not Me started it’s run on October 6th.

Kiss Him, Not Me deals with a ‘fujoshi’. A fujoshi is a woman with a boys love fetish, meaning if she sees two men in an anime or real life getting along she gets wild fantasies about them being in love etc. In Kiss Him, Not Me, Kae Serinuma is a fujoshi. One day her favourite anime character dies and the shock of that causes her to lose a great deal of weight. Suddenly she is popular with the boys and four hot guys at school ask her out, but the problem is she would rather loving seeing the boys date each other.

The anime is directed by Hiroshi Ishiodori (Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino), and while Rie Murakawa is singing the ending theme ‘Doki Doki no Kaze’ (Heartbeat’s Wind). From4to7, a group made up of four of the male cast members, is singing the opening theme titled ‘Prince x Prince’. Columbia Music Japan previews Rie Murakawa’s song Doki Doki no Kaze. Watch it here.
