Didn't expect Uverworld for this, they usually do action anime. Hopefully the song is good.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.
