Makoto Furukawa, a popular voice actor known for various game and anime roles such as Ronaldo in The Vampire Dies in No Time and Sherlock Holmes in Moriarty the Patriot, will be releasing his 4th single “Ware, Bara ni Insu” on February 16, 2022. A new artist photo, the single’s cover art, and a teaser trailer were released.
The single’s title song, “Ware, Bara ni Insu,” is the opening theme of the currently running anime Requiem of the Rose King.
Requiem of the Rose King is a dark fantasy based on a manga by Aya Kanno that is in turn based on Shakespeare’s plays Henry VI and Richard III. The manga has sold a total of 1.8 million copies to date. The lyrics for “Ware, Bara ni Insu” were written by Arika Takarano of ALI PROJECT, and combined with the voice of Makoto Furukawa, the song perfectly expresses the world of the anime.
The single will be released in two editions featuring different coupling songs. “First light,” the coupling song of the Artist Edition, was written by Makoto Furukawa himself, while “Hikari no Kairo,” the coupling song of the Anime Edition, was written by Saori Kodama, making for two very different versions of the single. Please stay tuned for more information.
Makoto Furakawa debuted under the Lantis label with his first single “miserable masquerade” on July 4, 2018. The song drew a lot of attention and was ranked No. 7 on the Oricon Daily Ranking. His first album from fairytale was released on December 23, 2020, and he held his first online concert at Kinema Club in Tokyo in April 2021.
