LMYK is a talented singer, popular for her debut song “Unity” – the theme for the Japanese dubbed version of “The Legend of Hei” movie. Now, her new song “0 (zero)” has been selected as the ending theme for the TV anime “The Case Study of Vanitas”. The anime (Japanese animated show) is based on the latest work by Jun Mochizuki, the author of the popular manga “Pandora Hearts” which sold over 5.5 million copies. The digital version of this theme has been released today! Fans who love the anime and have been waiting for the song showed excitement, and commented thoughts on social media, “When this song was first released, it stuck with me from the first time I heard it, and I was really looking forward to listening to the full version”.
To coincide with today’s digital release of “0 (zero)”, the English & Japanese version of this video has been released simultaneously. The anime is distributed internationally, and it is great to see an attempt to use the English version in English-speaking regions. These two music videos were directed by the up-and-coming filmmaker Soh Ideuchi. He captures the world of the song and the artist from a unique perspective, making a creation that can be called a visual poem.
The TV anime “The Case Study of Vanitas” non-credit ending movie has already received over 500,000 views on YouTube with enthusiastic comments domestically and internationally. It will be exciting to see fans react to the latest video.
