    Welcome to the producer room!
    Here, I, the executive producer, will present all kinds of information I get about the Character Song Project!!

    We have a comment from Rica Matsumoto, the voice of Satoshi and the singer of "XY&Z"!!

    "The OP of this long-awaited new series is making me really happy and pumped up. I believe the continuous love both I and Sako-kun have for Pokémon have combined to create an OP you will all enjoy. I hope I can hold concerts all over Japan where I can sing "Let'Z go!" together with you all. With the 20th anniversary right before our eyes, Pokémon has to keep evolving in order to connect the people that have supported the franchise all the way until now and the people that got into it starting with XY&Z... so I'm going to work my hardest on that!"

    This sounded awesome in the trailer.

    So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."

    Yeah, I'm sure we'll get clips of what's to come in the song.


    Not only have they renamed the series title to "XY&Z" but the song itself is called that too. They are really hyping this up.

    She's got a really nice singing voice, I'm impressed.

    The opening seems like it'll be lots of fun and hype.

    Rica's voice always soothes my ear

    The opening sounds extremely hype. October needs to hurry up already.

    It sounds so awesome and hype-ish, can't wait, I want spoilers! maybe a glimpse of the 8th gym leader/Kalos league also it really fits for Team Flare arc, more serious, better than kind of upbeat Be an Arrow! for N/Plasma arc.

    Oh look Rica's doing another Opening song. Good. I want this to surpass Spurt! tbh, but I don't think even she can do better than that masterpiece.

    The song seems nice so far. It might not be as catchy as the last couple of Opening themes, but it sounds to me like this Opening could be a pretty intense one and that would be great.

    Rica's new song sounds decent. At least it "seems" to fit the new arc unless it has childish lyrics, which could be expected from Tomohisa Sako.

    Looking forward to it. Rica has an amazing voice and she never manages to fail getting me pumped up to watch a show about a ten year old catching weird animals.

    Definitely sounds like a hype worthy song. I'm excited.

    From the sample that was played, it didn't sound as exciting as I had hoped, but the full version might still be great. At least it's not Getta BanBan remixed.

    I liked it from what I have heard, I can't wait for the actual opening scenes though! Though I'm surprised that Tomohisa Sako is still involved, but that doesn't mean anything bad.

    Silly question, but is Rica repeatedly singing "XYZ" in Japanese?

    I hear something along the lines of "Ekkusu" and "Zedd" in the trailer background, and seeing how the song is titled "XY&Z", I was curious...

    It's Ikuze, which basically means "Let's Go".

    It's a pretty clear pun on "XYZ", though.

    Might even be written as such in the lyrics, who knows.
