At midnight Japan time, Yanakoto Sotto Mute released the MV for their major label debut single, “Afterglow”.
Bask in it.
The costumes. The strings. Nade-chan eating a rose; Mani eating marbles; Ichika hitting the high notes; Tsukasa with a bucket on her head. It’s all gorgeously absurd and near perfection.
The digital version of the single was also released at Midnight, March 17th, but your local time, not Yanamute’s so it took a while to be available around the globe.
I may be the only one, but it seemed like the new girl, Tsukasa, was getting a little hazed in this MV (“Here, hold this goose. Now put a bucket on your head. Perfect!”). If you’re interested in getting to know the former Hawaiian a little better, Risano of Lyrical School has been posting interviews with her in English over the past few days.
