Under the mission of EXPLORING WONDERS, EMBRACING THRILLS, XFLAG STUDIO is dedicated to providing content that players can enjoy with their friends and family, not only with the Hunting Action RPG Monster Strike, but also with the production and broadcast of the Monster Strike anime, merchandising, and live events. With the release of the Fight League anime, XFLAG STUDIO continues its commitment to creating new surprises and experiences for users.

Fight League is a mobile app where players take control of a team of fighters from 5 different factions, called Brands (18th Avenue, Athlete Creatures, Gear Gadget Generators, TOYS of the DEAD, and Justice Professionals). The goal of the game is to place your fighters on the 12-space field and be the first to defeat the enemy player's leader. The Fight League anime will focus on one Brand, the Gear Gadget Generators (or GGG). Intense battle sequences featuring GGG's fighters and their skills & gadgets are highlighted in the anime.

Sound production for the Fight League anime will be managed by artist TeddyLoid. The opening theme is set to be a collaboration song by TeddyLoid and Reol&Giga, with the ending theme being a collaboration between TeddyLoid and kradness. TeddyLoid was chosen for the role as the viral spread and musical depth of his creations sync up perfectly with a world centered on technology and gadgets--GGG's specialty.

■ TeddyLoid's Comments
・About the Songs
I really think the opening and ending themes will help to further immerse viewers into the anime's world. Action-packed battles are an important feature of this anime, and these themes will help highlight them. I was in charge of production for all of the anime's background music, too, so don't miss it!

・Opening Theme: Winners feat. Reol & Giga
We created this song based on the overarching theme of victory--teaming up with your friends and coming out on top. Reol thought of the lyrics after I explained the theme to her by saying, "Even if you're the last one standing, never lose your will to fight. When you fight on by yourself, you're never alone. Even if you're separated from your friends, they stay with you in your heart." In the end, I think we created a song that will raise anyone's hopes. It's never over till it's over!

・Ending Theme: N.U.L.L. feat. kradness(Ver.GGG)
I wanted to make a song that was original and deviated from the trends of future bass. We even have strings coming into play in the second half. kradness was the one who thought up the name N.U.L.L. Most of us know it to simply mean "nothing," "worthless," "zero." However, in programming terms, it can also refer to a character that ends a string of other characters. I think this makes it perfect for an ending theme.

・Working with Reol and Giga
I've actually been a fan of ChiruChiru and Give me a break Stop now from their REOL days, and I've always wondered when I'd get the chance to create something with them. When I had the chance to meet Giga, I made my offer to work together. I think the song we made blends together the unique characteristics the three of us have.

・Working with kradness
I created the melody, asking kradness to work on the lyrics and vocals. Taking inspiration from my sound, he made all-English lyrics that help flesh out an exciting world.
