Theme songs for new adaptation movie of "Sangatsu no Lion" announced

The theme songs for the two-part adaptation movie of "Sangatsu no Lion" have been announced. For part 1 which will be shown in cinemas from 18 March, the theme song titled "Be Noble" will be sung by Boku no Lyric no Bouyomi, a 18-year-old singer and rapper who made his debut in 2015 when he was still in senior high school. He wrote the song specially for the movie which aims to reflect the struggles of the lead character Rei (Kiriyama) as he tries to find a place where he truly belongs to.

As for Part 2 which will be shown from 22 April, the theme song "Haru no Uta" originally by Spitz will be covered by Fujiwara Sakura which is said to be the song which the author Umino Chika had been listening to when she conceptualised the story. Fujiwara commented that she had been a fan of the manga so it was a dream come true for her to be able to cover the song.
