Yasunaru Takanashi also attached for soundtrack
Every good tokusatsu series needs a good soundtrack -- and the team for Ultraman R/B is shaping up to be impressive. The series creators have announced the artists behind the OP and ED themes for the upcoming series, as well as the composer for the overall soundtrack.
Last week's Tokyo Toy Show at Tokyo Big Sight brought the announcements. Handling the show's OP theme, "Hands," will be singer/songwriter Masayoshi Ooishi. Ooishi has also performed themes for Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun and all three seasons of Overlord.
Handling the ED theme, "Yume Hikou," is Suzuko Mimori, known to Love Live! fans as the voice of Umi Sonoda. Mimori has also performed themes for Yuki Yuna Is a Hero and Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, among others.
As for the soundtrack as a whole, that's being handled by composer Yasuharu Takanashi. Takanashi has supplied soundtracks for Naruto, Boruto, Fairy Tail, and multiple seasons of PreCure, to name just a few.
Ultraman R/B kicks off on July 7.
