Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear ED gets lyric video and it’s adorable — watch and sing along, of course

As if the new fantasy adventure comedy anime Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear wasn’t adorable enough, the Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear ED — ‘Anone.‘ sung by Maki Kawasejust got a lyric video that is as cute as cute as can be.

The lyric video showed up on the Columbia Music Japan YouTube channel and features scenes from the anime series, along with the song’s Japanese lyrics.

As you might expect, you will have to be able to read Japanese to sing along to it, however.


The song’s vocalist Maki Kawase, of course, also plays Yuna, the anime’s protagonist.

Prior to that performances, she was known for her roles in Didn’t I Say To Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?! , Zombieland Saga and Val x Love, and for singing the ED theme songs for series like Val x Love, Zombieland Saga and Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan.

The release of the Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear ED theme song lyric video is not just a stand-alone we-thought-you’d-like-this from Colombia Records, however, as it was obviously created to promote both the series and the series’ original soundtrack album.

That soundtrack album is due for release in Japan on November 25, 2020. (article continues below…)
