Anime studio Sunrise announced on Friday that
FictionJunction is singing "distance" as the new ending theme song
for the high-definition remaster of its Mobile Suit Gundam Seed television
series. The song will begin streaming in episode 29 on June 22, and the same
episode will run in the satellite/cable channel BS11 on July 1, followed by the
Tokyo MX station on July 3.
FictionJunction is the collaboration of composer Yuki
Kajiura and a lineup of vocalists. Collectively, they performed the theme songs
for Ōkamikakushi, Pandora Hearts, and Sacred Seven; the various members have
contributed songs to many more anime titles. FictionJunction will perform at
Anime Expo in Los Angeles this summer.
