Coinciding with the August 24 release of the new season of father-son face-off anime series ‘Baki Hanma’, the opening theme song ‘Sarracenia -Anime Size-’ by SKY-HI and ending theme song ‘Salvia -Anime Size-’ by BE:FIRST have been released on download and streaming services around the world. ‘Baki Hanma’ is the latest instalment in the beloved ‘Baki’ anime franchise.
‘Sarracenia -Anime Size-’ is themed on the anime’s fist-fighting father Yuujiro Hanma, featuring lyrics from the viewpoint of a strong fighter, a rap and vocal track that overflows with skilful expressive power, and an aggressive track with dramatic twists and turns. These three elements combine to create a song brimming with emotion.
Meanwhile, ‘Salvia -Anime Size-’ is based on the son, Baki Hanma, and features lyrics and music written by SKY-HI with the theme of longing to find strength, sung and rapped by the seven individually unique members of BE:FIRST over a melancholy but edgy track – again combining three elements of perfect chemistry into one amazing song.
In addition, a music video for each song featuring the opening and ending footage from the anime with the credits removed has been released, drawing an incredible response from fans around the world.
