Ai Otsuka's new single "Chime" chosen as opening theme for TV anime Fruits Basket

2019-07-12
Otsuka, Ai


Celebrating the 15th anniversary of her debut, J-Pop singer-songwriter Ai Otsuka's new song "Chime" has been chosen as the new opening theme for the 2019 TV anime "Fruits Basket". And digital single "Chime" released on download sites and subscription services worldwide.

Otsuka recently finished her Japan tour "Ai am BEST, too" in support of her greatest hits album, and will start a tour of Asia in China (4 cities) and Taiwan in July.

The remake of the Fruits Basket anime with new staff and cast began in April. Originally written by Natsuki Takaya, Fruits Basket is a girls manga which was serialized from 1998 to 2006 in the magazine Hana to Yume (Hakusensha), with more than 30 million copies of the series printed worldwide. In 2001, it was animated for TV on TV Tokyo (26 episodes) and later adapted for a live stage production in 2009. Fruits Basket has gained overwhelming support over a wide audience, mainly female, and is still very popular 10 years since the last episode of serialization.
