December 26, 2008: Please read the Erratum for this post.
Hobby Channel released their version of the XXXHOLiC Shunmuki press conference and while the content is very similar to Presepe’s one (the one I posted a while back), there is one new and very interesting information in Hobby Channel’s.
According to them, Nanase Ohkawa is in charge of writing the lyrics of XXXHOLiC Shunmuki’s theme song!
Quoted from the article:
According to CLAMP’s Ohkawa-sensei, preparations for the script have started, the theme song is being prepared as well.
That’s amazing news! The last song she wrote for a CLAMP anime was Ningyo Hime, Chobits’ 2nd ending theme, in 2002.
Now, I wonder if Suga Shikao will perform any songs for this OAD. He recently released a new album, could he really release a new single by February? Also, Suga Shikao is known for writing, composing and producing his own songs, could he sing a song whose lyrics were written by someone else?
Unless, by “theme song”, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be the opening theme. Saigo no Kajitsu is considered the main theme of Tokyo Revelations and yet, it plays in the ending.
Great news! I’ll be looking forward to it, whatever it is!
