Toho Animation’s official YouTube channel has posted a two-minute music video for “Shiny Ray,” the OP theme song for the Little Witch Academia TV anime performed by rookie singer YURiKA. She was born in Saitama, and was chosen as a winner of the 1st Toho Animation Records Next Generation Artist Audition held last spring. She is now repped by Toho Geino/Toho Entertainment, Toho’s own talent agency. Her major debut single “Shiny Ray” will be released from Toho Animation Records on February 22.
YURiKA has posted her comment on the release on her official Twitter:
“I have been waiting for this day for so long. I have always wanted to sing anime songs. With supports from many people, I really appreciate that Little Witch Academia made my dream come true. I know the real game is yet to come and these are so many things I lack, but leaving all of that aside for now,
I just wanna say, ‘I am so happy–!!!'”
