CAPSULE Release Special Video For Knights of Sidonia Anime Film’s Theme ‘Hikari no Disco’


This year marks the 20th anniversary since CAPSULE—the music unit formed of Yasutaka Nakata and Toshiko Koshijima—made their major debut.


The duo released their first new song in six years on June 4. Titled Hikari no Disco (“Disco of Light”), the track is the newest release from CAPSULE since their last album WAVE RUNNER dropped in 2015. It was written as the main theme for the anime film Sidonia no Kishi: Ai Tsumugu Hoshi (Knights of Sidonia: The Star Where Love is Spun). CAPSULE released a special video featuring the song and clips from the film on Friday.



Knights of Sidonia is a mecha and space opera manga series by Tsutomu Nihei who is also known for other popular series such as Blame! and Aposimz. The series is a bestseller in Japan and has won the Kodansha Manga Award and Seiun Award. An anime adaptation by Polygon Pictures aired from 2014-2015 in line with the animation studio’s 30th anniversary. The anime film adaptation, which also released on Friday, sees the return of the staff who worked on the anime series.
