Every Friday at 5 PM JST, the latest news about the new TV series Ultraman Blazar will be released! The series featuring defense team SKaRD led by Gento Hiruma, played by Tomoya Warabino, will start from July 8th 2023 JST. Please look forward to learning more about the series every week!
This week, information on the artists singing the opening and ending theme songs has arrived.
The first reveal is a rock artist that debuted in 1994. He first established himself as an ani-singer in 1999 when he did a song for an anime show, still popular to this day. He has since performed many anime and game theme songs. In recent years, this artist has also ventured into writing and providing songs not only for the JAM Project but for artists in other fields as well. This powerhouse in the ani-song industry is Hiroshi Kitadani.
The artist singing the ending theme song is from Thailand. She had loved singing from a young age and started watching and singing Japanese anime theme songs from her father’s influence. She then started her own YouTube channel, focusing on anime song covers and now boasts over 1 million subscribers and over 100 million views on her channel. This artist is MindaRyn.

Every Japanese boy longs to be a tokusatsu hero.
And Ultraman is special even among them.
It’s truly amazing to be able to sing an anthem for Ultraman.
And I’m so grateful to sing to all those Ultraman fans around the globe♪
Just as Ultraman and his theme songs gave me courage when I was a child,
I hope this song will also be cherished in everyone’s hearts as well.

Ending Theme Song
Performed by: MindaRyn
Written by: SACHIKO
Composed and Arranged by: Hisashi Koyama
I’m MindaRyn and I will be performing the ending theme song for Ultraman Blazar!
I was very happy when I first heard that I was going to do the ending theme song, but also extremely surprised as well. I kept asking "Are you sure, it’s really me?”
I mean Ultraman is a show everyone knows, even in Thailand, where I’m from. It’s a show that I grew up with.
I tried to express Ultraman’s power to give courage to everyone through my singing.
I imagine myself fighting alongside everybody listening to this song when I sing this. I hope that I can help convey that power with Ultraman Blazar!
