MAN WITH A MISSION Release New Opening Theme for My Hero Academia!

MAN WITH A MISSION’s new song ‘Merry-Go-Round’, which is also the new opening theme song for the popular TV Anime ‘My Hero Academia’, was released through digital distribution on the 17th of July!

MAN WITH A MISSION just released their latest single called, ‘INTO THE DEEP’ on the 9th of June, and announced more exciting news about a new song. ‘Merry-Go-Round’ is featured as the new opening theme song for the anime ‘My Hero Academia’ for the second term of season 5. ‘My Hero Academia’ has been broadcasted from Saturday the 26th of June in Japan. This popular anime, which has avid fans from inside and outside Japan, is based on the manga series of the same title. ‘My Hero Academia’ is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kohei Horikoshi and has been published serially on the ‘Weekly Shonen Jump’. The popularity of the TV series has grown rapidly and this summer, ‘My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission’ will be released in Japan. 

Their latest song consisted of a dramatic and strong sound. This song is about the frustrated and endless circulation of one’s emotion when people aim to achieve something. Like the song title ‘Merry-Go-Round’, it describes when you run passionately after trying to reach someone special which is your aim, but you don’t feel like you are achieving or getting closer at all. This new opening theme song was first heard on Saturday the 26th of June and their new PV with the footage of the new opening sequence was also released prior to the broadcasting of the theme song on TV. The digital distribution of ‘Merry-Go-Round’ started on the 17th of July. 

Members comment: “I’m truly glad that I had this amazing opportunity of composing the theme song of ‘My Hero Academia’. I have always enjoyed reading the manga series! When Izuku admires All Mighty, when people chase someone’s back trying to reach their goals, and still you don’t feel like you are getting closer to it at all… I made this song based on that complex feeling. And I compare the feeling to a merry-go-round. I hope this song will be an exciting addition to the story as a ‘Plus Ultra’.Let’s enjoy this new season of the story together!”

“Merry-Go-Round” was released digitally on the 17th of July 2021. You can download and stream the new song from here:
