    Black Night Parade was originally manga series by Hikaru Nakamura, the creator of Arakawa Under the Bridge and Saint Young Men. The live-action film will be directed by Yuichi Fukuda, who has worked on a number of live-action film adaptations of manga series including Gintama and Kyo Kara Ore Wa! Fukuda also wrote the screenplay along with Tetsuo Kamata. The protagonist Miharu Hino will be played by Ryo Yoshizawa, while Shino Hojo will be played by Kanna Hashimoto. Taishi Nakagawa will play Kaizer Tanaka and Keisuke Watanabe will play Teppei Kohira.  

     

    The story follows Miharu Hino, a man who is completely hopeless at everything he does. He failed his entrance exam, failed at job hunting, and has no love life to speak of. After working at a convenience store for three years, he meets a man in a black Santa suit who kidnaps him, offering him a job. Miharu then begins working at Santa Claus House, a mysterious company at the North Pole that delivers gifts to children around the world.

     

    Comment from Eve

    “I’m incredibly honored because I loved both the original manga and Fukuda’s past works. I wrote this song Shirayuki with the hope that Christmas could be an important day for everyone. I would be so glad if this song makes you nostalgic for winter, making you imagine the cold air that stings your nose and the stars in the clear night sky. I love Kunehito, so I am looking forward to seeing him in the film.”

    The music video was animated by illustrator Mai Yoneyama, who also provided the package designs for the Yoku collection. “I focused on the colors and effects to show how these products can transform a person’s monochromatic daily life into something more exciting once their desires (yoku) are unleashed,” Yoneyama commented.

     

    The newest collection from KATE is being advertised all over Japan, with the newest music video highjacking the massive TV screen in Shibuya. Original LINE stickers featuring the characters from the video are also available now!

     

    Mai Yoneyama


    Q. This music video’s storyline focuses on freely expressing your desires and becoming exactly who you want to be. With this in mind, is there anything in particular that you focused on during production?

    A. The theme of this collection is ‘desire,’ and I wanted to express this common facet of life through different colors and effects. I was really particular about the composition–I focused on the colors and effects to show how these products can transform a person’s monochromatic daily life into something more exciting once their desires (yoku) are unleashed. I used a lot of slow-motion animation as well, so that people could really see the finer details.

     

    Q. The theme of this collection is ‘desire.’ What’s something you desire lately?
    A. I always have a desire to express how I feel in a way that completely satisfies me. Oh, also, I really want to travel.

     

    Q. What’s your favorite product from the new collection? Who would you recommend these new products to?
    A. The multi-diamond glitter was really unexpected. I’d never used it before, but it’s exactly what I always hear about cosmetics–once I put it on, I just felt so uplifted! I’d really love to give it to my family and friends who have supported me on this project and loved my work.

     

    Q. This is your second time collaborating with Eve. What’s your impression of his work?
    A. I was happy to bounce ideas and thoughts off of him. He wrote the music after seeing the illustrations I made, and I listened to his music while I drew the storyboards. I think the two of us were able to create something incredibly true to the theme and we expressed exactly what we wanted to express. I’ve always loved Eve’s sensibility and I’ve listened to his music for a long time, but this collab let me see a different side to him. He becomes more incredible every single day.

    Eve

    Q. You wrote YOKU to represent the new collection from KATE. What did you focus on while creating the track?
    A. I have a tendency to make really powerful songs that turn up the passion to 120%, so I wanted to tone that intensity back this time. I want the listener to feel like they’re floating when they hear it.

    Q. How did you come up with the lyrics? What was your inspiration?
    A. The title of the song means ‘desire,’ and it made me think about what that really means. In this world with no right answers, I want everyone to develop their own unique style. I want these lyrics to inspire people to follow their own desires without being influenced by the opinions of others. It’s a chance to face yourself and love yourself in your own way.

    Q. The theme of this collection is ‘desire.’ What’s something you desire lately?
    A. I always want to eat sweets. Lately, all I desire are strawberries.

    Q. This is your second time collaborating with Mai Yoneyama. What’s your impression of her work?
    A. Yoneyama’s illustrations are incredibly appealing. I love her character’s expressions, the delicate texture of their hair, the strength they exhibit–everything. This video has so many scenes of makeup being applied and close-up shots, all of which pulled me into the music video’s world. I hope everyone enjoys the video and the song together!
