Above is the new visual for the opening theme to the upcoming anime adaption of Keiichi Sigsawa’s light novel “Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online.” 29 year old singer Eir Aoi is standing amidst blue lights to represent the song’s title “Ryusei (Meteors)”. The song will be available for digital download on iTunes, mora and other services on April 22. The song’s CD will release June 13 as a double A side single along with her new song “Yakusoku.”
Eir Aoi took a two-year hiatus due to health issues after her two-day concert at Nippon Budokan in November 2016. Her official website announced her return with a music video for “Yakusoku.”
Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online is scheduled to premiere April 7 on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11 and MBS. Afterward, it will be also available to Crunchyroll members in North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Ireland.
