Opening of the Week: My Hero by Man with a Mission (Inuyashiki)
For the second installment of this series, I thought It would be good to continue shouting out awesome openings from this season’s givings. This week, we’ll be looking at a band who has been one of my favorites after discovering them: Man with a Mission, and their song Hero, from the show Inuyashiki.
If you recognize this band from somewhere else, then your not just seeing things. They have had music in other anime openings like Log Horizon and The Seven Deadly Sins, as well as in a number of live-action movies, including the recent Mad Max.
My Hero isn’t exactly distinct from the band’s usual style, but their mix of Hard Rock and Rap done mostly in English is still infectious and gets me headbanging every time. The song with opens with an awesome drum solo and then slowly builds to an guitar drop as the rest of the band joins in.
Jean-ken Johnny has some good bars, and the lead vocalist Tokyo Tanaka has a voice that I can only describe as pleasing to the ear. The band as a whole is good, and they definitely bring their A game for this opening.
What do you guys think of this opening? let me know in the comments.
