SPYAIR, CHiCO with HoneyWorks to Perform Gintama OP

Rock band SPYAIR and music group CHICO with Honeyworks  both announced on Sunday that they will perform the new opening and ending themes, respectively, for the Gintama. anime when it returns in July.

Gintama is the anti-meta of the popular shonen anime. It is one of my top long running anime series next to Detective Conan and Dragon Balls.  The anime had entered the “Silver Soul” arc on January 7. Silver Soul is the manga’s final arc that began in July 2016. The anime will return in July for the “climax” of the Silver Soul arc.

I know I am suppose to be on hiatus to revise for exams, but this is big news. Most of my favorite Gintama OPs are from SPYAIR,  and CHiCO with HoneyWorks.
