March Comes in Like a Lion | Bump of Chicken

March Comes in Like a Lion will receive an Opening and Ending theme for the anime adaptation of the manga from Bump of Chicken.

The band is set to write a new song for the anime’s opening. Bump of Chicken has provided music for Final Fantasy Type-0, Kekkai Senson, and many other projects. Additionally, the band’s music will also be featured in the ending credits with their song ‘Fighter’. This song was originally created as a collaboration with the manga in 2014.
