The cover song project “CrosSing” featuring various artists/voice actors was launched in March 2022, and its latest fourth entry is “Kaibutsu” (TV anime BEASTARS second season OP theme), newly covered by Akari Kito, best known as Nezuko Kamado in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.


The song was originally released by the two-member unit YOASOBI on January 6, 2021 as their seventh digital single. The song’s official music video featuring the anime footage has been viewed more than 200 million times on YouTube. Kito says is a video message, “I’m into this song lately and I sing it even at home. So I was given the opportunity to do this cover performance, and I enjoyed singing it very much.”
