Gyokō no Nikuko-chan ending theme song ‘Taketen’ gets music video — song performed by GReeeeN

The Gyokō no Nikuko-chan ending theme song ‘Taketen‘ got a music video this morning and, as might be expected from preview trailers of the upcoming anime film, the animated video is cute and the song is just as sweet.

Taketen’ is performed by Japanese pop rock band GReeeeN, and is one of two theme songs featured in the upcoming film.

The other — the opening theme song —  is a GReeeeN produced track, but this time a pretty cover of Takuro Yoshida’s ‘Image no Uta’, which is performed by 10-year-old voice actress and singer Kurumi Inagaki.

Along with the ‘Taketen‘  music video, the official site for the film also revealed the movie’s poster art. (see below)


Gyokō no Nikuko-chan (aka Nikuko of the Fishing Harbor) is based on the Gentosha novel of the same name.

The film is being produced at Studio 4°C, with Ayumu Watanabe (Children of the Sea) directing, Satomi Ooshima (Hataraki Man) in charge of the script, and Kenichi Konishi (A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd) designing the characters.

It stars Shinobu Ōtake (Mary and the Witch’s Flower) as Nikuko, Cocomi as her daughter Kikuko, Natsuki Hanae (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) as Ninomiya, and Ikuji Nakamura (Konchū Monogatari Mitsubachi Hutch – Yūki no Melody) as Sassan.

Gyokō no Nikuko-chan opens in Japan on June, 11th.
