An original soundtrack to the TV anime Blood Blockade Battlefront has been confirmed for a July 15 release. The CD will be from the talked-about adaptation based on Yasuhiro Nightow’s popular manga. In addition to musical gems by Taisei Iwasaki, composer on the series, there is also a TV size version of the opening theme, “Hello, World!”, by rock band Bump of Chicken. Fans have been calling out for a CD release since the broadcast began, so this has been a long-awaited announcement.

Blood Blockade Battlefront overflows with detail, and so does the music. The recording is said to have taken place not just in Japan, but in countries around the world including in America, where the story is set, and Israel in the Middle East. The original soundtrack spans two discs and comes in a tri-fold sleeve case. There are 40 songs in total spanning 106 minutes.

The album also features the TV size version of “Hello, World!”, the opening theme by Bump of Chicken. The song caught on after it was released with a promotional video before the broadcast began. There is no doubt that this will be an indispensable item for fans. Further details including the song list will be announced on the official site once they are determined. The soundtrack will be released on July 15 and cost 3,300 yen (plus tax).

Blood Blockade Battlefront is a popular action manga by Yasuhiro Nightow, a manga artist known for such hits as Trigun. Set in Jerusalem’s Lot of a transfigured New York that overlaps into another world, the series has gained popularity for the abundantly unique characters of the secret society Libra and its delicate psychological drama.

The wonderful voice cast beginning with Rikiya Koyama as Klaus V. Reinhertz and Daisuke Sakaguchi as Leonard Watch is another highlight. The series is directed by Rie Matsumoto of the PreCure series, and the animation is produced by Bones.
