To celebrate the blu-ray and DVD release of the original animated movie Her Blue Sky in 2019, a special dance video performed by the staff has been unveiled on YouTube. The staff can be seen dancing in unison to the full version of the enka song Chichibu dontokoi, which is performed by the famous enka singer Dankichi Nitobe (voiced by Ken Matsudaira).
Her Blue Sky (Sora no Aosa o Shiru Hito yo) was produced by the creative team Cho Heiwa Busters, who are known for producing Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day and The Anthem of the Heart. The team reprised their roles with Tatsuyuki Nagai as director, Mari Okada as screenwriter and Masayoshi Tanaka as animation director.
This fun video compilation aims to encourage people of the world to stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Ken Matsudaira can be seen stepping up to the challenge in a casual jersey along with several others from the main cast and even the behind-the-scenes production staff.
