According to the latest Oricon report revealed today, “Kigeki (Comedy),” a new digital single song by singer-songwriter Gen Hoshino, recorded 20,012 downloads in its first week and ranked No. 1 in the weekly digital single chart. The song is now used as the ending theme for the spring 2022 TV anime SPY x FAMILY. Following “Idea” (August 2018), “Souzou” (February 2021), and “Fushigi” (April 2021), this was his fourth No. 1 digital single in his career.
“Comedy,” a newly-written song for the anime, was released digitally from SPEEDSTAR RECORDS on April 8, 2022. “I wrote this song while thinking about the “family” of Loid, Yor, and Anya in ‘SPY×FAMILY’ and the meaning of the word ‘family’,” Hoshino says of the song. “While listening to the completed song, I feel that the song is very suitable for the coming warm season when trees are lush and flowers are blooming. I hope you will listen to the new song ‘Kigeki’ a lot and get ‘excited’ about where the song will be played in the first episode’s broadcast.”
