'JoJo's Bizarre Adventure' Part 5 Reveals New Opening Theme Details

Although fans have been greatly enjoying the first opening theme of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind, "Fighting Gold," but like the other parts of the series, the new season will soon be ushering in a new opening theme.

The official website for the series revealed the new details behind the new opening theme, and while there's no confirmation of when the new opening will debut, fans should get ready for "Uragirimono no Requiem."

The next opening theme of the series is officially titled "Uragirimono no Requiem" (loosely translated as "Requiem for a Traitor") as performed by Daisuke Hasegawa, who also performed the final opening theme of Diamond is Unbreakable, "Great Days," with Karen Aoki.

The new song is composed by Yugo Kanno, who composed much of the music behind the series. The lyrics were written by Shoko Fujibayashi, who's most famously written the lyrics to the series' first opening them, "JoJo (Sono Chi no Sadame)." The new opening theme will also feature an English version, and the single is expected to go on sale in Japan on March 27.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has been building toward a new arc as Bucciarati's Gang have found themselves in constant battles with members of the Hitman Team. There are still a few that have yet to reveal what they can do, so fans will be keeping an eye on the series to see what comes next. Especially so now that there's a new opening theme on the way.
