And those two singles will both be released at the same time!
“Kaidoku Funou (Indecipherable)” (Atom: The Beginning OP Theme)
“Anti-Clockwise” (Clockwork Planet ED Theme)

For each single, we’ve had it created in our usual fashion of putting a large volume of 4 tracks in 1 single!!”

Mafumafu: “Thank you for coming to our livecast!
With that being said, this was our talk for the start of the year 2017 was about “Simultaneous Double Single Release”! For both “Kaidoku Funou (Indecipherable)” and “Anti-Clockwise”, I pumped in all of the musical knowledge I had in their making, and they’ve become songs that I can send out with pride. Please give me your regards. I’m soooooooo excited for the anime aaaaahhh!!!”
