On April 6th, it was announced that Kis-My-Ft2 and Maeda Atsuko from AKB48 will provide the opening and ending song for the upcoming drama ‘Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou‘. The opening theme song will be Kis-My-Ft2’s new single “Shake It Up” and Maeda Atsuko’s solo 2nd single “Migikata” will be the ending theme song. The release date of both singles is as yet undecided.
‘Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou’ is a story of the trials and tribulations when a boy’s high school that has a lot of delinquents and a prestige girl’s high school, where all students are from high-class families, combine into one school. Kis-My-Ft2’s Miyata Toshiya and AKB48 research student Mitsumune Kaoru were cast in the drama as fixed charaters. Uchi Hiroki and Kitahara Rie from AKB48 team B will also make appearances in the drama.
“Shake It Up” is a fun, danceable song. Miyata showed his delight being cast in the drama and commented “The song is very upbeat and makes me feel like dancing. I would like all the cast and staff to remember the dance, and same as “Bakaleya”, I want to do “Bakasawagi”(liven up with dancing and singing).”
Maeda Atsuko’s “Migikata” will be her second solo single. The ballad song is about ‘heart-wrenching girl feelings’. Maeda states “‘Migikata‘ is my favorite song. I am glad it has been chosen as the ending theme for the drama, which my junior members are starring.”
“Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou” will be aired on NTV from April 14th at Saturday 12:50AM.
