Toho Animation's official YouTube channel has posted a full music video for singer-songwriter Yusuke Saeki's "Now or Never," which has been used as the ED theme song for Yowamushi Pedal New Generation, the ongoing third TV anime series based on Wataru Watanabe's road bicycle racing-themed sport manga, and its behind-the-scenes clip to explain how it was filmed in one shot with all backwards action.
Saeki is well-known for his collaboration works for Kanjani Eight, Arashi, Kana Nishino, and May J as a lyricist/composer, and this is his first single from Toho Animation Records, released in Japan on February 15. It didn't make it to the top 50 of the Oricon weekly single chart in its first week of release, selling less than 1,223 copies.
Yowamushi Pedal New Generation is now available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except Asia.
