The official Twitter for the upcoming TV anime Phantom in the Twilight confirmed today that its OP theme song "Flowery song" is performed by 36-year-old Taiwanese singer/actor 汪東城/Jiro Wong. He is a member of Taiwanese Mandopop vocal quartet boy band Fahrenheit, whose two albums have been released by Pony Canyon in Japan. It is expected to be his first solo single to be released in Japan
"Flowery song" is written by Japanese gay poet Dan Osano, who currently lives in Taipei, Taiwan, and is composed/arranged by JUDY AND MARY guitarist Takuya. Osano also worked on vocal direction in the recording because it is Jiro' first Japanese lyrics song.

game company Happy Elements as its first original anime series. Liden Films (The Heroic Legend of Arslan)
works on anime production, Kunihiro Mori (Chosoku Henkei Gyrozetter) serves as director.
The story is set in a mysterious cafe in London, "Cafe Forbidden," which opens only at night. The staff
