puella magi madoka magicaThe new theme song of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica movies is entitled “Luminous” and is performed by the female teenage duo ClariS. They have also sung the opening theme song for the original Madoka Magica anime series (“Connect”), which I am sure everyone remembers!

The information was released through an entirely new TV spot, which also names some of the main staff members for the first installment of the trilogy:

Producer: Atsuhiro Iwakami

Chief director: Akiyuki Shinbo

Writer: Gen Urobuchi

(Original) character designer: Ume Aoki

Anime studio: SHAFT

The single will be released on the market this October 10. Luminous will be the theme song for the first part of the recap of the original anime episodes “Gekikjou-ban Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Zenpen: Hajimari no Monogatari” (coming out October 6).

The duet has also performed openings and endings for various anime. The most popular titles are easy to point-out: Oreimo and Nisemonogatari.
