The official website for the television anime adaptation of Korean creator SIU’s Tower of God manhwa revealed on Wednesday that Korean all-male band Stray Kids are performing the opening theme song “TOP-Japanese ver.-.” The website also began streaming a promotional video that previews the song.

The series will debut on Crunchyroll on April 1. The anime will premiere in Japan on the same day at 24:30 JST (effectively April 2 at 12:30 a.m.). The website teased the anime would also have a simultaneous release South Korea.

The anime’s cast includes:

Kevin Penkin (Made in Abyss, The Rising of The Shield Hero) is composing the music.

Sola Entertainment is providing production management for the series. Rialto Entertainment, Aniplex‘s wholly-owned subsidiary, is producing the anime.

The Crunchyroll and WEBTOON production is part of the Crunchyroll Originals slate. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

The upcoming Crunchyroll Original series centers on the journey of a young man as he battles his way through the mysterious Tower, building friendships, discovering the rules that govern this tower, and facing unimaginable terrors, as he strives to find the only friend he’s ever known.

SIU launched the manhwa on NAVER WEBTOON in 2010. WEBTOONS launched the manhwa in English in July 2014.
