just released a new digital single titled Merry-Go-Round

is the latest opening theme for the anime series "My Hero Academia", which is now broadcasting the second part of its 5th season.
The band members stated that they were very happy to have the opportunity to contribute a theme to the series, as they are big fans of the original manga.
The song is said to be about the endless circulation of frustration and other emotions when people aim to achieve something. Like the ride in the song's title, it describes the experience of running passionately after a goal, but feeling that
you are not getting any closer at all.
A member of MAN WITH A MISSION
“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 Might
, when people chase someone’s back trying to reach their goals, and
still don't feel like they are getting closer to them 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!”
