    URL: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mIusuXNPcKk

     

    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!

  • Netflix’s Bubble Anime Film Reveals Opening & Ending Themes, Full Trailer

    05.March.2022 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE / MUSIC

    The anime film Bubble is coming to theaters in Japan on May 13, 2022, and will be available to watch on Netflix globally on April 28, 2022. The opening theme will be performed by Eve, while the ending song will be sung by Riria, who also voices Uta in the film. A full trailer featuring the theme by Eve has also been uploaded to YouTube!

     

    Wit Studio is in charge of Bubble’s animation. Tetsurou Araki (Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) is the film’s director while Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is the scriptwriter. Artist Takeshi Obata (Death Note) serves as the film’s original character designer and Satoshi Kadowaki (Attack on Titan) handles the chief animation direction. Hiroyuki Sawano (86 EIGHTY-SIX co-composer) is in charge of the musical score.

    The opening theme, Bubble feat. Uta, was written by Eve. The up-tempo and fast-paced track foreshadows the more intense scenes in the film and the fate awaiting the two main characters.

     

    Full Trailer

     

    When asked about the theme song’s production, Eve stated that he was deeply moved to sing alongside so many greats. “I wrote Bubble for this pure and gentle film, and it took me somewhere I hadn’t been before. The film is set on a magnificent scale with action that you can’t tear your eyes away from. Each character has such a rich personality. I’m so happy to be a part of this project. Please come to the theater and see it for yourself–parkour is so cool!” 

     

    “I’d seen him perform a number of times, but it was still difficult to approach him for the project. I felt that once he agreed, it was fate,” said director Tetsurou Araki. “The world that Eve portrays in his music is exactly what I had set out to express in this project.”

     

    Voice actor and singer-songwriter Riria performs the ending theme and plays the role of Uta in the film. Popular among Gen-Z, she wrote the ending theme Jaa ne, Mata Ne (See You, Catch You Later). The fragile and sad track brings the audience closer to Uta’s heart and helps to understand her character. In a departure from his previous works, Margt (PERIMETRON) was in charge of art direction. 

     

    Netflix also provided a synopsis for the film. 

     

    “In a Tokyo where gravity has broken, a boy and a girl are drawn to each other… The story is set in Tokyo after bubbles that broke the laws of gravity rained down upon the world. Cut off from the outside world, Tokyo has become a playground for a group of young people who have lost their families, acting as a battlefield for parkour team battles as they leap from building to building. Hibiki, a young ace known for his dangerous playstyle, makes a reckless move one day and plummets into the gravity-bending sea. His life is saved by Uta, a girl with mysterious powers. The pair then hear a unique sound audible only to them. Why did Uta appear before Hibiki? Their encounter leads to a revelation that will change the world.”

     

    Riria was selected to play the role of major character Uta despite this being her first voice-acting experience. “First, they asked if I wanted to perform a song for the film, and I immediately said I would love to,” she said. “Then they asked if I wanted to play the role of the heroine and I freaked out! I can’t, I thought, I can’t do it! But at the same time, it looked like so much fun, so I had to make a decision. It was only after I accepted the role that I realized how big this project was. When I read the script for the first time, I cried so much. I felt like I was feeling what Uta was feeling. Even now when I think about it, I want to cry. Even during my first recording session, I immediately felt like I had become her.”

     

    Keep an eye out for the film on Netflix later next month!
