Singer-songwriter Ricardo Cruz is responsible for creating the song that will be the main theme of the second season of the One-Punch Man anime.
The Brazilian is part of the Japanese super group JAM Project, a dream team of singers who have recorded quite a few theme songs for anime series.
“baptized in the West of Uncrowned Greatest Hero” (“静寂のアポストル” – Seijaku no Apostle in Japan) will be the opening of the second season of One-Punch Man that premieres in April 2019, replacing another song of the JAM Project, “The Hero,” the theme of the first season. The single will be released in Japan on April 24, 2019.
It is the first time that a Brazilian composed a soundtrack for an original anime in Japan.
In Brazil, Ricardo recorded Portuguese versions for the anime Hunter x Hunter, Saint Seiya, and most recently two Dragon Ball Super ending themes, which were screened by Cartoon Network in South America.
The singer also participates in a Brazilian group called Danger 3.
