Unfortunately, he was also tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday
The official YouTube channel for Japanese pop singer Takanori Nishikawa has started streaming a full music video for his fifth solo single song "Ichiban Hikare! -Bucchigire-," which has been featured as the OP theme for the summer 2022 TV anime Shine on! Bakumatsu Bad Boys.
He had performed under the stage name T.M.Revolution (TMR) since 1995, but he also made his solo singer debut under his own name, Takanori Nisihikawa, in 2017. "Ichiban Hikare! -Bucchigire-" was released as his fifth single under the name on July 27, 2022, and will also be included in his second album "SINGularity II -Kakeisei no protoCOL-" to be released on August 10, 2022.
In the music video, while singing the song, he travels back and forth between the present and the worlds of the previously released music videos for "Crescent Cutlass" (third single), "Tenbin-Libra" (a duet song with ASCA) and "Eden through the rough" (fourth single).

Unfortunately, on the single's release day in Japan, he also announced on his official Twitter that he was tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, his two concerts in Mie on July 29 and Gifu on July 30 were decided to be postponed.
He wrote, "I sincerely apologize for any concern this may cause. The PCR test, which I take regularly as part of my thorough infection control measures, has come back positive. I'm symptom free, which is even unbelievable for myself who saw the result, but I will make every effort to recover in accordance with the established standards. I am sorry for all those who were looking forward to my concerts."
ご心配をおかけして誠に申し訳ありません。徹底した感染症対策の一環として定期的に受けているPCR検査で陽性の反応が出ました。結果を見た僕自身が信じられない程の無症状ではありますが、定められた基準に従い回復に努めたいと思います。公演を楽しみにされていた皆様には、ご迷惑おかけ致します。 https://t.co/ZVppPRkoXm— 西川貴教 (@TMR15) July 27, 2022
