Another moment of pleasant surprise from the Johnny’s Jr world. News broke on March 6th that Hihi Jets would be providing the opening and ending themes for the new Bakugan anime, “Bakugan: Battle Planet”.
The opening theme will be entitled, “Jonetsu Jamboree”. While the ending theme is called “Be My Story”. The series, and these songs will begin airing April 1st.
Not going to lie, I’m incredibly surprised that an un-debuted group got the deal for an opening and ending theme of a fairly popular franchise. It’s not exactly a common thing for a production company to take a chance on. The Bakugan franchise has made a lot of intersting choices, considering it’s a Canadian-Japanese-American co-production in the first place. And secondly, it’s already been released in America and Canada late 2018 and early 2019.
I’m not quite sure what to expect from HiHi Jets in this new adventure. From what little I saw of the original Bakugan, the shounen label fits HiHi Jets but the contrast between the franchise in the individuals in the group seems huge. It’ll be really intersting to see how both songs sound as individual tracks, and as part of their discography. I’m hoping, which might be a big stretch, that we get two music videos. That’s a lot to ask, but at least a lyric MV would be awesome.
All that’s left is we have to wait for April 1st to come!
