Kanjani8’s superhero alter-ego Eight Ranger is set to release their 2nd second single, directly titled ‘ER2′ on August 6. The song is featured as the theme song for movie ‘Eight Ranger 2’ that opens July 26. Prior to the movie release, the ER2 PV (Issai Gassai ver) has been released. Snippets from the movie, new Hachimon mascots, the ranger dance routine, sentai group pose, and even Hawaiian Hula dancers are all present in the PV.
The first single, ER, has set the record single sales for a Movie Character when it sold 331,000 copies in its first week. ER2 gives a consistent feel as the first single, although fans seem to prefer the addictive power jam that is ER.
