Yesterday, the Lord El Melloi II twitter and website, updated with new PV for the Special episode that will air on new year’s Eve. The PV has a new song by ASCA (who sang the ED of the TV anime) composed by Yuki Kajiura, titled Kimi ga Mita Yume no Monogatari, and its basically vocal version of the TV anime OP theme “starting the case”.
An EP will be released on January 26, 2022 (with Digital release on Jan 1, 2022) containing Kimi ga Mita Yume no Monogatari, as well as a different take on “hibari” titled Hibari – winter whisper version –, and also Gyakkyō Spectrum (mobile game “SAO: Unleash Blading” theme), Kinmokusei [both not by YK], and respective instrumentals for all.
