‘SEISHUN WO KIRISAKU HADO’ by ATARASHII GAKKO! Chosen as Theme Song for New Drama Series ‘Young Ladies Don’t Play Fighting Games’
On May 19, the drama series Young Ladies Don’t Play Fighting Games will begin airing on NTT Docomo’s Lemino streaming service. SEISHUN WO KIRISAKU HADO, a new song from ATARASHII GAKKO!, will serve as the theme song.
Inspired by Eri Ejima’s manga series of the same name, the over-the-top comedy series follows female students at an elite finishing school as they fall in love with fighting games–the furthest thing from a dignified hobby. The fast-paced song SEISHUN WO KIRISAKU HADO was written and composed by Kenta Matsukuma and has a catchy melody and passionate lyrics that perfectly fit the energy of the series.
