During the Nao Toyama Birthday Celebration ~Naobou is quitting the 20s~ held at EX THEATER ROPPONGI, it was announced that Nao Toyama will be singing the opening theme of Ascendance of a Bookworm season 3, which will be airing in Japan from April. It was also announced that she will be releasing a double tie-up single on June 8!
This 6th single, which is also part 3 of her 5th Anniversary Plan, will include both “Ano Hi no Kotoba,” the opening theme of Ascendance of a Bookworm season 3, and “Growing,” the previously announced ending theme of I’m Quitting Heroing. “Ano Hi no Kotoba” was written by singer-songwriter Sakura Fujiwara and composed and arranged by Soulife. Comments from both artists can be found below.
The new single will be released in three formats. The Ascendance of a Bookworm Edition (Limited Edition A) will feature a jacket illustration by Yū Shiina and come with a Blu-ray disc containing a 120 minute digest video of Nao Toyama Birthday Celebration ~Naobou is quitting the 20s~, including bonus footage. The booklet will contain a birthday report manga drawn by Makana Watari, a manga artist who has previously created illustrations for Naobou-chan.
