The ＜Extra Edition＞ for the popular TV anime “SWORD ART ONLINE” will be broadcasted on December 31st, 2013. It has been confirmed that Eir Aoi’s “Niji no Oto” would be inserted as theme song for this ＜Extra Edition＞. The song would be released as Aoi’s 6th single on new years day of 2014.
“SWORD ART ONLINE” is a popular TV anime based on a novel and has been broadcasted on TOKYO MX for two seasons since July 2012. Aoi sang the opening theme song for the second season of the show, “INNONCENCE”, which was released as a single in November 2012. It marked 6th place on Oricon on it’s first appearance on the chart. 70,000 copies of the single were shipped out and the song has a count of more than 150,000 digital downloads, making it one of her representative songs.
The same team would make its revival with “SWORD ART ONLINE Extra Edition” on New Year’s Eve this year on TOKYO MX. The song would reflect Aoi’s strong determination. We can’t wait for its revelation at the end of the year.
