MAN WITH A MISSION song ‘Merry-Go-Round’, the new opening theme song for the popular TV Anime ‘My Hero Academia’, is out now for digital distribution!

Merry-Go-Round is featured as the new opening theme song for the TV 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 TV Anime, which has avid fans from inside and outside Japan, is based on the Manga series of the same title 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.

MAN WITH A MISSION who composed the song commented that the members were also big fans of the original manga.  ‘I was so pleased that I had the great opportunity of creating the opening theme song for ‘My Hero Academia’ since I truly love this manga series!’

MAN WITH A MISSION is a rock band consisting of five members. They call themselves the five ‘Ultimate Life Form’ with the head of a wolf and a human body.

The new 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.

“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!”
