BLUE ENCOUNT to sing the theme song for NTV Autumn 2016 drama "THE LAST COP / Last Cop"

Rock band BLUE ENCOUNT's new song titled "LAST HERO" which is due to be released on 23 November, will be the theme song for the upcoming NTV Autumn 2016 drama "THE LAST COP / Last Cop" starring Karasawa Toshiaki and Kubota Masataka. The drama which begins its run from 8 October in the Saturdays 9pm timeslot, features Karasawa as a Showa-era passionate police detective Kyogoku Kosuke who wakes up from a 30-year coma and works with his Heisei-era counterpart Mochizuki Ryota (Kubota) to solve various difficult cases.

The producer of the drama Toda Kazuya revealed that he had heard BLUE ENCOUNT's songs and decided to make the offer to the band as he felt that their songs were very catchy and full of passion. In that sense, they were somewhat like Kyogoku's character so he felt that the band's music was a perfect match for the drama with its fast pace and a tinge of sadness. The band's vocalist Tanabe Shunichi commented that they were honoured to be given the chance but they were also troubled at first as to what kind of song to write for the drama. In the end, they managed to come up with something which they feel is the coolest to date in the band's history and is eagerly anticipating the start of the drama.
