May.31, 2024

News

 

We are announcing this week’s latest updates for the new series Ultraman Arc, which will be aired on TV Tokyo Network and broadcasted and/or streamed worldwide at 9:00 a.m. JST on July 6, 2024 (Sat).

This week’s update features the music of the show.

 

The opening theme song is performed by “access,” and the ending theme song is by ARCANA PROJECT. The soundtrack is made by Yuki Hayashi, an experienced artist whose resume includes multiple popular anime as well as TV dramas and shows. Their music will further enhance the heated battles and massive dreams brought to us by Ultraman Arc and Yuma.

 

Opening Theme Song: arc jump’n to the sky by access

 

 

The opening theme song features the unit, access, which consists of keyboard artist Daisuke Asakura and vocalist Hiroyuki Takami. Soon after its debut in November 1992, the unit quickly hit the top rankings in music charts. The unit’s sound creation using digital synthesizers as well as their live performance have continued to evolve since then, during which Daisuke Asakura also composed and performed the first opening theme song for 2016’s Ultraman Orb THE ORIGIN SAGA. Hiroyuki Takami has also excelled not only in music but also as an actor, having even experienced “transformation” roles, making him popular among tokusatsu fans as well.

 

<Comments from access> 

We, access, are very excited and thrilled to make this opening theme song for Ultraman Arc. Ultraman, whom we used to love so much as kids, continues to provide dreams and courage to children in Japan after almost 60 years. This is very exciting and we really appreciate that.

And now in 2024, we have made this song with our honest feelings about Arc, whose power comes from dreams and imagination. We hope everyone can feel our respect for Ultraman as well as a lot of positivity.
