Kessoku Band performs “Guitar, Solitude, and the Blue Planet” with lyrics by Bocchi
“Guitar, Solitude, and the Blue Planet” is performed by the fictional Kessoku Band and written by heroine Hitori “Bocchi-chan” (“Loner”) Gotō. Episode 4 depicted Bocchi’s struggle to formulate the lyrics; she started by attempting a crowd-pleasing song with youthful themes, but then eventually decided to express her unique negative energy.
Aniplex is also streaming a clip of Kessoku Band’s performance from the anime.
The manga’s story follows Hitori “Bocchi-chan” (“Loner”) Gotō, a lonely high school girl whose heart lies in her guitar. She does nothing every day except strum her guitar by herself at home. However, she happens one day to meet Nijika Ijichi, who is looking for a guitarist for her group named “Kessoku Band.”
The anime’s “Kessoku Band” with Ikumi Hasegawa (voice of Ikuyo Kita) on vocals is performing the opening and ending songs. Singer-songwriter Ai Higuchi wrote the lyrics, and Otoha composed the music for the opening song titled “Seishun Complex” (Youth Complex). The KANA-BOON band’s vocalist and guitarist Maguro Taniguchi wrote the lyrics and composed the music for the ending song titled “Distortion!!”
