Naniwa Danshi, the seven-member sensation, is set to light up the screens with their new track, "I Wish," chosen as the theme song for the upcoming TBS drama series, "My Second Aoharu." This exciting series, starring Shunsuke Michieda, will air every Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. starting on the 17th.
The show's narrative centers around Sayako Shiratama (played by Alice Hirose), a 30-year-old facing life's challenges. Inspired by a mysterious college student named Taku Ogasawara (Michieda), Sayako decides to return to her studies and become a university student in the Reiwa era. It promises to be a rom-com where love, studies, and dreams clash amidst the backdrop of college life.
To ensure the song harmonizes perfectly with the drama, it was crafted in collaboration with the production team. "I Wish" exudes the spirit of youth, a touch of melancholy, and heartfelt aspirations. This classic pop tune boasts a catchy and nostalgic melody, making it both a love song and a source of motivation, perfectly complementing the story of Sayako, Taku, and their university companions.

He describes "I Wish" as a refreshing track that suits both the drama and the group's style. He eagerly anticipates the audience's reactions and how the song will enhance the viewing experience.
As for the rest of the group, Michieda reveals that they are equally enthusiastic about the song, often humming it during rehearsals. He invites viewers to embrace the winter vibes with Naniwa Danshi and explore their fresh perspective, all while enjoying "I Wish" to the fullest.
