Shiroi Honō (白い炎?, lit. "White Blaze") is the second single from Japanese singer Yuki Saito. The single was released by Canyon Records on May 21, 1985, and was used as the theme song for the first Sukeban Deka television drama series on Fuji TV, in which Saito also played the main character, Saki Asamiya.

History[edit]

Shiroi Honō was released by Canyon Records on May 21, 1985. It was used as the theme song for the first Sukeban Deka television drama series on Fuji TV,[1] and Saito was the first to play the main character in the series, Saki Asamiya (she was followed by Yoko Minamino in the second series[2] and Yui Asaka in the third).[3] While Saito's first release, Sotsugyō is a pop song, Shiroi Honō is a rock song.

The title song was composed by Kōji Tamaki, and Shabon-iro no Natsu was composed by Toshio Kamei. Both songs had lyrics written by Yukinojō Mori, and both were arranged by Satoshi Takebe.[notes 1]
