Following the OP song “BARVER” sung by ZAQ, Japanese record company Lantis’ official YouTube channel has posted a three and half minutes full version music video for two-member rock band nano.RIPE’s latest 18th single song “Kyokyojitsujitsu” (Fictitious and Factual).
The song is now featured as the ED theme for Food Wars! The Third Plate, the ongoing third season of the TV anime adaptation based on the cooking battle-themed manga Shokugeki no Soma. The unit previously provided their 16th single song “Snow Drop” as the ED theme for the TV anime’s second season aired in the summer of 2016.
According to the director Takayuki Kojima (MVs for MAN WITH A MISSION, KEYTALK, Ayana Taketatsu, and many others), the clip is heavily inspired by Takashi Ito’s legendary experimental film in 1981, “SPACY,” known for its “mise en abyme” concept. The CD singe of “Kyokyojitsujitsu” hits
Japanese stores today, November 15.
The highly anticipated third season premiered in Japan on October 4, one year after the 13-episode
second season ended, and is now available to Crunchyroll members.
