Johnny’s artist Tomohisa Yamashita’s upcoming single will be used as a theme song to popular manga-turned-anime トリコ (Toriko), it was announced on April 12, reports Sankei Sports and Oricon.

 

It has been reported the song is called “LOVE CHASE”, and although a released date has not been decided, it will start playing at the end of the anime show from April 15.  Yamashita has said he was excited about his first anime song as a solo artist.

“I can’t wait to see how ‘LOVE CHASE’ goes with the ‘Toriko’ anime,” he said.

 

Toriko follows the adventures of Toriko, a gourmet food hunter, who is always on the search for the perfect meal.  The Toriko anime series began in 2011, but the manga has been a regular series in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2008.

 

It has been reported Yamashita himself has said the song’s style is expressed in the title.

“Like the title says, it’s a very uptempo song and I think it goes very well with Toriko’s stories of trying to find impossible foods,” he said.

 

Song producer and pop-rock band MONKEY MAJIK said the song also goes well with Yamashita’s image.

“It’s the perfect song for Yamashita-san, it’s cool and upbeat so I hope you all like it!”
