“Dekoboko,” the opening theme for the upcoming Spring 2022 anime A Couple of Cuckoos, will be available to stream and download on iTunes and Spotify beginning April 17, 2022.
The song is performed by Ikimonogakari’s Kiyoe Yoshioka and is her first single for 2022. A photograph of Yoshioka and the song’s cover art were also released.
An iTunes pre-order/Spotify pre-save campaign for the song kicked off on January 18, with 100 fans having the chance to win an original “Dekoboko” pencil case by lottery.
Yoshioka said in a press release:
“I am so honored to be a singer for the song ‘Dekoboko’ which is the opening theme song of “A Couple of Cuckoos”. ‘Dekoboko’ is an amazing love song created by Haruko Nagaya. It will definitely make people excited! Everyone from the band, Ryokuoushoku Shakai, took part in playing the music. I am so glad!! I would be so happy if I could be able to support the main characters in the anime, who are pushed by destiny, as well as the entire animation of “A Couple of Cuckoos”!! Please enjoy the anime and the song ‘Dekoboko’!”
Additionally, Akari Kito, who voices A Couple of Cuckoos’s main heroine Erika Amano, said:
“I was so thrilled to find out that Kiyoe Yoshioka will sing the opening theme song for the TV anime “A Couple of Cuckoos”. Since I am a part of her generation, I am so excited!!
It is an awesome song with Kiyoe Yoshioka’s pure voice and melody and lyrics reflecting the freshness of the work, full of the sweet and bitter feelings of love.”
A Couple of Cuckoos is based on the manga series of the same name by Miki Yoshikawa (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches). The romantic comedy love story follows two high school students who were accidentally switched at birth and are pressured into an arranged marriage. As a result, they’re made to live together under the same roof.
Shin-Ei Animation and SynergySP will be in charge of animation production. Crunchyroll has licensed the series for worldwide streaming outside of Asia.
