32-year-old anime voice actor Shouta Aoi has revealed his brand new artist photo and two CD jacket photos for his upcoming 12th single "BAD END" to be released on April 29. The CD jacket photos were taken in the atmosphere of medieval Europe and created with the technique that combined him and the background illustrations.
The title track "BAD END" will be featured as the ED theme song for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Satoru Yamaguchi's fantasy light novel series My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!, in which he is also cast as one of its main male characters, Gerald Stuart.
