Momoiro Clover Z recently held a special Children’s Day concert, where they officially announced that the coupling track, “MiteMite☆KoCchiCchi,” of their upcoming single will be used as the ending theme of the TV anime “Pokemon: Best Wishes!” and upcoming Pokemon movie, “Meloetta no kirakira recital.”
Member Takagi Reni expressed, “Finally, the pseudo idols that look like us will become prepared for the two year-end shows ‘Toshiwasure Nippon no Uta’ and ‘NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen’ by singing the ending theme of a national anime. Everyone, look forward to it.” Tamai Shiori added, “It’s a song that can be sung along by little kids, and since the choreography is suited for everyone as well, it would be great if the little kids danced along with us.”
Momota Kanako commented, “It makes me really happy that we get to sing the ending theme of a national anime. Since there’s already a national idol group, I’d like us to become the ‘national pseudo girls’ (laughs),” and “I personally think that little kids aren’t getting enough exercise these days, that’s why we wanted to create a dance that is like an exercise for them. It would definitely be great if we could all dance and train our bodies together.”
“MiteMite☆KoCchiCchi” was written by Toda Akihito and composed by Tanaka Hirokazu. Momoiro Clover Z’s upcoming single will hit stores on June 27th!
