Japan’s talented artist and voice actress Sumire Uesaka has announced that her 13th single ‘LOVE CRAZY’ will be released from 8 February 2023. The title track from the release will also be the opening theme song for the TV anime Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro 2nd Attack, which will begin airing in January 2023. It sees Sumire Uesaka play the lead role of Miss Nagatoro, as she did in the first season, which her hugely popular track ‘EASY LOVE’ was the opening theme to and has since been streamed over nine million times on Spotify alone.
The lyrics to the track have been written by TAKUMI YOSHIDA of Hokkaido’s three-piece rock band saji. Its composition and arrangement has been handled by KoTa, who has worked on numerous songs in Japan’s world of tokusatsu film and TV.
Sumire Uesaka has also revealed her latest artist pic. It sees her in a black and white gothic outfit, drastically different from the cute and soft atmosphere used to promote her latest album ANTHOLOGY & DESTINY.
‘EASY LOVE’, Sumire Uesaka’s opening theme for the first season of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro is still a long lasting hit domestically and internationally, along with her latest releases also attracting attention at home and abroad. With her tenth anniversary as an artist just around the corner and expectations for her future activities ever increasing as she lands bigger and bigger roles (she is currently the star of the new series of Urusei Yatsura, and is in the stage play of GeGeGe no Kitaro, both household names in Japan), this is absolutely a release for fans of Japanese pop culture to look forward to!
