Anisong singer-songwriter Masayoshi Oishi has released a full music video for his tenth single song “Shinda!” (Dead!), which is now featured as the opening theme for the spring 2023 TV anime The Legendary Hero Is Dead!. Following the winter 2023’s The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, he performs an anime opening theme song for two consecutive seasons.

The song was released digitally on April 7, and its CD single is set to be released on May 31. The music video was directed by Toshitaka Shinoda, who also worked on Oishi’s second single song “Otomodachi Film” (Tada Never Falls in Love opening theme) and YOASOBI’s third digital single song “Harusion,” while NON (ELEVENPLAY), who choreographed Oishi’s previous video “Gift” and “Otomodachi Film,” serves as the choreographer.

The video features four mass-produced edition Oishi who look a lot like himself wearing dark-rimmed glasses, and they show off a snappy dance performance that creates the illusion that there are five Oishi.

The Liden Film-produced TV anime adaptation of Subaruichi’s fantasy manga The Legendary Hero Is Dead! premiered in Japan on April 6, 2023, and its first episode “The Legendary Hero Is Dead?!” is now available for Crunchyroll Premium members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East and CIS.

In a world of monsters and magic, Sion, the local hero, is on his way to save the world from demons. Well, that was the plan until he fell into a pit dug by a sleazy villager, Touka, and died! After hiding the accident, Touka goes to bed as usual but wakes up feeling…different. Somehow he’s in Sion’s body! Now, the fate of the world is in his hands. What could go wrong?
