Ikimonogakari and Little Glee Monster to Perform Theme Songs for “Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin” Anime

Ikimonogakari and Little Glee Monster are set to bring their musical talents to the anime adaptation of “Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin”.

The anime “Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin” is based on the popular 2020 RPG game. It follows Sakuna, a harvest goddess who is exiled to the island of Hinoe. There, she battles demons and learns traditional Japanese rice farming techniques.

Ikimonogakari‘s new song “Harebare!” will serve as the opening theme. The upbeat track features lyrics by Yoshiki Mizuno and arrangements by Ryo Eguchi. The band hopes the powerful melody will support Sakuna’s spirited journey.

Little Glee Monster‘s “ORIGAMI” will be the ending theme. The song blends traditional Japanese elements with the anime’s scenery. The group expressed their excitement, noting their love for rice and enthusiasm for the anime’s themes.

Ikimonogakari commented:

“We hope our strong melody will inspire viewers alongside Sakuna’s vibrant character. Enjoy the anime with our song!”

Little Glee Monster added:

“We’re thrilled to be part of an anime about rice farming. ‘ORIGAMI’ reflects the beauty of ‘Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin.’ Enjoy both the anime and our song!”

Fans can preview the songs in the anime’s trailer on YouTube.
