Sakanaction Plays Theme Song “Kagerou” for “Laughing Under the Clouds” Live-Action Film


The official website for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Kemuri Karakara's fantasy action manga Donten ni Warau/Laughing Under the Clouds announced today that five-member Japanese rock band Sakanaction is set to provide the theme song "Kagerou" (heat haze) and the OP song "Donten ni Warau -opening&ending- with GOCOO."

Director Katsuyuki Motohiro (Bayside Shakedown, Psycho-Pass) has had a close friendship with the band and gave them the offer for the songs in May 2016, just before the shooting of the film began. The theme song is, however, still not completed yet, because the band has been playing the song in their concerts since March of this year, adding a little modifications every time they played. The frontman of the band Ichiro Yamamoto (vocal/guitar) says, "We have not yet reached a certain level that we can be assure of answering the request from non other than director Motohiro."

The highly-anticipated adaptation starring 24-year-old Sota Fukushi (Gentaro Kisaragi in Kamen Rider Fourze)

is set for a release in Japan on March 21, 2018.
