Nippon Columbia’s official YouTube channel has started streaming a lyric video for “Honto no Kimochi. ~Anone. Sono Tsuzuki~ “ (True feelings. ~You see… The rest of the story…)” included in the ending theme CD for the spring 2023 TV anime Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear – Punch!. The CD was released in Japan today, April 19.
The cute song is sung by the protagonist Yuna’s voice cast, Maik ikawase herself, who also sings the second season’s ending theme “Zutto” (All the way). “Honto no Kimochi. ~Anone. Sono Tsuzuki~ “ was produced as an answer song to the first season’s ending theme “Anone,” also sung by Kawase. The CD also includes the ending theme for the first season’s final 12th episode, “Anone. -loved ones ver-“ by Kawase and Fina VA Azumi Waki, as well as their solo versions.

Message from Maki Kawase:
I am very happy to sing the ending song as Yuna, continuing from the first season. The lyrics of “Zutto” are a little sad, like “approaching adulthood while facing a headwind,” but it also makes you look up and move forward, “I can do my best because you are with me.” In the recording session, I put the feeling of “I’m not alone, so my world is expanding. I want to keep running on each other’s path with Yuna and everyone who listens to this song.” As Yuna, who acts with the desire to protect those she cares about. And I sang this song with various “thanks”. The song runs strongly toward the latter half of the story. I hope you will enjoy it in full size.
Following the well-received first season in the fall 2022 season, Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear – Punch!, the much-awaited second season of the TV anime adaptation of Kumanano’s isekai fantasy light novel series, finally premiered in Japan on April 3, 2023, and has also been simulcast on Crunchyroll for members in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East and CIS.
Yuna’s not your typical 15-year-old. Her life is pretty much perfect—until she wakes up one day inside the game she loves and back at level one. She has to start over, but this time, she has a powerful bear suit that’s guaranteed to take her places!
