3rd Single “Hohoemi no Oto” To Be Released on May 29!



Voice actress Ai Furihata will be releasing her third single “Hohoemi no Oto” on May 29. There will be a standard edition and anime edition available for purchase, both of which will include the title song “Hohoemi no Oto” as well as one other new song.


“Hohoemi no Oto” will be featured as the opening theme song to the TV anime Astro Note, a new and exciting sci-fi romantic comedy directed by Shinji Takamatsu, who brought us Gintama, and with character designs by Eisaku Kubonouchi, who worked on Tsurumoku Bachelor Dormitory. The anime is slated to premiere in April 2024 and Furihata will also be voicing the character Teruko Matsubara.


The single was composed and arranged by Akimitsu Honma, who has produced songs for Porno Graffitti and Ikimonogakari, and the lyrics were written by Yukinojo Mori, who has written many hits for rock artists such as Tomoyasu Hotei, as well as numerous Showa pop and anime songs. Having delved into city pop from the 80’s, Ai Furihata is the perfect artist to pull off this captivating song.


A new artist photo and the CD jacket have also been released. With breakfast as the theme, the artist photo features a striking image of Furihata having breakfast in the living room of an old Japanese-style house and the CD jacket features a cute and tasteful image displaying staple Japanese breakfast items. The anime edition of the CD features a jacket with an illustration by Maho Aoki, the character designer and chief animation director of the Astro Note.


In the clean opening of Astro Note released today, you can get an advanced listen to the TV size version of “Hohoemi no Oto.” We hope you look forward to the anime broadcast as well.


Ai Furihata is also planning to go live on Instagram on February 22 at 8PM (JST). She plans to talk a lot about various topics including “Hohoemi no Oto” and Astro Note, so be sure not to miss it!
