    05.February.2021 | FOOD

    A special animation was released by Japanese confectionery company Lotte on Monday (February 1) as a commercial for their Ghana chocolate. The video, entitled “Ghana Gift,” features a collaboration with Japanese music artists Eve and suis from Yorushika.

     

    Eve x suis from Yorushika’s New Song “Heikousen” Features in ‘Gift’ Animation

    The animation was directed by Nobutaka Yoda and written by Genki Kawamura, with character design by Kiyotaka Oshiyama. With the pandemic, it has become difficult to see loved ones and friends and many of us are unable to express our feelings to these special people in our lives directly. Lotte created the animation to promote the gift of giving this Valentine’s Day as a way of conveying ties to loved ones. The animation is 30 seconds long but a 4-minute version will be released in the near future.

     

    The Animation’s Story

    The story follows two children, a high schooler and middle schooler, who are neighbours. Both of them throw paper planes to each other with messages written on them to go shopping, make chocolate, and hang out. But the day before Valentine’s Day, we find out the girl has to move away, but before she does, she gives the boy chocolate. The two of them were always together, but they never expressed their love for each other.

     

    The 30-second version can be viewed on YouTube and the official website.

  • Myuk Performs The Promised Neverland Season 2’s Ending Theme

    18.December.2020 | ANIME&GAME

    It has been announced that Myuk will perform the ending theme Mahou (‘Magic’) for the upcoming second season of the TV anime series The Promised Neverland, adapted from Kaiu Shirai’s manga of the same name, which is set to begin airing on January 7, 2021. The song was written by popular Japanese artist Eve.

     

    Myuk | Comment

    “I love The Promised Neverland. I watched the first season as a fan and looked forward to a new episode every week. Now I get to sing a song written by Eve, an artist who I’ve always listened to and have great respect for. It all feels like a dream. The time you spend with someone precious to you as like ‘magic,’ and even should that fade some day, your memories of them will live on. That will be your nourishment. In this song I sing about feeling lost when moving forward, and those nights of solitude when you feel lonely. I’m personally honoured to have this song, ‘Mahou,’ playing together with Emma and her friends, who I love so much, on screen. I pray that lots of people get to hear it!”

     

    Eve | Comment

    “It has hit me hard on many occasions seeing those young boys and girls facing their cruel world with a positive outlook. I’ve learned a lot some this series. This was my first time working with Myuk’s voice, and just like those simple and honest boys and girls, her voice has both tremendous strength together with a tense of transience, like she is going to disappear. It made me feel confident that ‘Magic’ as a song will be far-reaching as it resonates.”

    Eve | Comment

    “I have been given the opportunity to perform the main theme song for Josee, the Tiger and the Fish. The first time the director showed me the storyboards for the film, it felt as if the characters were and still are really alive. I remember how moved I was by the beauty and level of detail in them, like the animation was jumping out at me. They received the song I wrote warmly. I wrote it while trying to find a commonality between Josee, who is shy and clumsy, and I questioned what exactly something that hasn’t worn away with time would look like. I’m overjoyed to have been put in charge of a small part of this film.”
