The Crunchyroll co-production series is set to premiere in Japan on April 13
Lantis' official YouTube channel has posted a three-and-half minute clip including a music video for six-member voice actress idol unit NOW ON AIR's fourth single song "Gondola no Uta" (The Song of Gondola) and the members' comments for the single.
Their latest song is a cover version of a classic Japanese popular song originally released in 1915 and will be featured as the ED theme for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Kei Ii's mystery novel Kitsutsuki Tantei-dokoro / Woodpecker Detective's Office. The song was chosen because the story of the novel is set at the end of the Meiji era, the early 1900s in Japan.
The unit's six members: Misako Iino, Mitsuho Kambe, Aki Tanaka, Hitomi Suzuki, Momone Iwabuchi, and Mina Katahira were the winners in the "Kimikoe Audition" with 3,000 participants in 2016, and made their voice actress debut in the anime film Kimi no Koe wo Todoketai / Your Voice -KIMIKOE- released in Japan in August 2017.
They are scheduled to release their new singles for three consecutive months. Following their fourth single "Gondola no Uta" on May 13, their fifth and sixth singles will follow in June and July. The yet-titled sixth single song is already set to be featured as the ED theme for the second season of the Muhyo & Roji's Bureau of Supernatural Investigation TV anime to premiere in the summer of 2020.
The Crunchyroll co-production TV anime Woodpecker Detective's Office is set to premiere in Japan on April 13, 2020, with a stream following the broadcast shortly after.
