The original TV anime Fena: Pirate Princess will begin broadcasting in North America on Adult Swim’s Toonami block and streaming on Crunchyroll in August 2021. Its broadcast in Japan is slated to start in October 2021.
B: The Beginning’s Kazuto Nakazawa creates a new tale of adventure in a unique world. Set in the 18th century, it is a romantic journey on the high seas with princesses, samurai, and pirates!
The opening theme song “Umi to Shinju” will be produced by Yuki Kajiura, who is also handling the music within the anime, and is sung by JUNNA. The ending theme song “Saihate” will be sung by Minori Suzuki. Excerpts from both songs can be heard in the second promotional video that was released today.
Both of the artists offered comments on this great opportunity!
“I’m incredibly honored to be singing the opening theme song “Umi to Shinju” for the wonderful anime that Fena: Pirate Princess is. I’m thrilled to have the chance to work with Kajiura on this song. The first time I heard it, I was overcome with excitement and wondered what kind of story would start to unfold. While receiving directions from Kajiura in the recording studio and imagining the magnificent world of the anime, I put all of my determination into the song and sang my heart out. I would be so happy if you could feel the emotions of the characters setting off on their new adventure as you listen to the song. I hope that it becomes a song of courage that gives everyone who listens to it that extra little push of encouragement that they need.”
“Saihate” was chosen as the ending theme because Director Nakazawa said it perfectly matched the world of Fena: Pirate Princess. I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it, so I’m incredibly grateful for this opportunity! I’m so happy! I’m sure that Fena’s beautiful innocence will give courage to many people. I can say with confidence that this is a great song! Through this anime, I hope it will spread across the seven seas and throughout the whole world!”
