Kensho Ono has announced that he’ll be the one singing Kuroko’s Basketball ending theme on the second part of this anime season. Kensho Ono, 24, is a young talented voice and stage actor born in Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan and is starting to shine in the seiyuu industry. With roles ranging from Kuroko Tetsuya from Kuroko’s Basketball, Ren Hakuryuu in Magi to his latest role of Kamio Satoru in Gingitsune he’s now directing his talents towards singing.
Already known for some, Ono is a good singer and it’ll be interesting to listen to his ending theme for Kuroko’s Basket.
“Fantastic Tune” is scheduled to be released on 26/02/2014. This announcement comes as a surprise since it has been almost like sure that OLDCODEX would be the owners of that spot on the ending theme like they were on the first season of the anime (second part of the season) and this season their song “WALK” is featured as the ending theme. Ono who plays Kuroko Tetsuya (the main character in the anime) is for the first time singing a song to be featured as the ending theme.
“Fantastic Tune” is composed and written by R.O.N, former guitarist for OLDCODEX, who has previously worked in Kuroko’s Basketball anime scoring the soundtrack and composing the ending theme “CATAL RHYTHM” by OLDCODEX.
The single will be available in regular and deluxe edition. There’s no information regarding the tracklist or cover art. The announcement was made this week and as soon as more details are available we’ll update this news.
