It was announced that Sayaka Nakaya, a 22-year-old ex-member of popular idol group AKB48, sings "Happinesscharge PreCure! WOW!," the OP theme song for the upcoming TV anime Happinesscharge PreCure!, the 11th installment of Toei Animation's long-running magical girl series. Nakaya quit the group in March 2013 to achieve her childhood dream of being an anime voice actress. After the withdrawal, she has made a brief voice appearance as an extra in Samurai Flamenco and My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy. She may join Happinesscharge PreCure! as a voice cast?
It is a good surprise for the fans that Hitomi Yoshida stays to perform the ED theme song for the anime, "PreCure Memory." This is the fifth PreCure ED song for her following "Yay! Yay! Yay!" and "Mankai Smile!" for the ninth series Smile PreCure!, "Kono Sora no Mukou" and "Love Link" for the 10th series
Dokidoki! PreCure. The CD single includes both "Happinesscharge PreCure! WOW!" and "PreCure Memory"
will be released in Japan on March 5, and the TV anime will start on February 2.
