Nippon Columbia has announced that voice actress Miku Ito‘s next tenth single “Ao Hyaku-shoku” (Blue 100 Colors) is set to be released in Japan on April 6, 2022, and that the song will be featured as the OP theme for the forthcoming second season of the TV anime Komi Can’t Communicate.
The song is written/composed by singer-songwriter Makoto Kawamoto. She made her major label debut with her first single “Ai no Sainou” in 1996. Among anime fans, she is best known for her third single song “1/2,” which was used as the second OP theme for the TV anime Rurouni Kenshin. She is currently active as a singer-songwriter who not only sings her own songs but also provides music for various artists.
Ito says on the anime’s official website, “I’m very honored to be in charge of the theme song for the second season of ‘Komi Can’t Communicate’! I want to do my best to express the cute, heartthrobbing, and slightly frustrating world view of Komi-san with my singing voice. The theme song ‘Ao Hyaku-shoku’ is a refreshing and catchy song that evokes the blue of each person’s youth. I hope you will enjoy not only the melody that lingers in your ears but also the poetic sweetness and sourness of the lyrics.”
