The official YouTube channel of Nippon Columbia has started streaming a charming lyric video for “Honto no Kimochi. Anone. Sono Tsuzuki” (True feelings. ~You see… The rest of the story…), which is part of the ending theme CD for the upcoming TV anime Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear – Punch! airing in spring 2023. The CD, which includes the delightful song, was released in Japan on April 19.
The song is sung by the voice cast of the main character, Yuna, who is portrayed by Maik Ikawase, who also sings the ending theme “Zutto” (All the way) for the show’s second season. “Honto no Kimochi. Anone. Sono Tsuzuki” was created as a response to the first season’s ending theme “Anone,” which was also sung by Kawase. The CD also features “Anone. -loved ones ver-” by Kawase and Fina VA Azumi Waki, as well as their solo versions, which were the ending themes for the first season’s final 12th episode.

Message from Maki Kawase:
I am very happy to sing the ending song as Yuna, continuing from the first season. The lyrics of “Zutto” are a little sad, like “approaching adulthood while facing a headwind,” but it also makes you look up and move forward, “I can do my best because you are with me.” In the recording session, I put the feeling of “I’m not alone, so my world is expanding. I want to keep running on each other’s path with Yuna and everyone who listens to this song.” As Yuna, who acts with the desire to protect those she cares about. And I sang this song with various “thanks”. The song runs strongly toward the latter half of the story. I hope you will enjoy it in full size.
The second season of the TV anime adaptation of Kumanano’s isekai fantasy light novel series, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear – Punch!, has finally premiered in Japan on April 3, 2023. This follows the well-received first season in the fall 2022 season. Additionally, fans across the globe can also enjoy the new season as it has been simulcast on Crunchyroll for members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS.
Yuna’s not your typical 15-year-old. Her life is pretty much perfect—until she wakes up one day inside the game she loves and back at level one. She has to start over, but this time, she has a powerful bear suit that’s guaranteed to take her places!
