Young Black Jack's Singer Brings the Manservice in Nude Cosplay
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Viewers got an eye full of Tezuka's iconic doctor's abs in the first episode of Young Black Jack's but opening theme song singer UMI☆KUUN is giving the 2D bishōnen a run for his money. The singer reproduced an image by the manga's artist Yū-Go Ōkuma where Kuroo Hazama appears only half clothed.
The image is the first time UMI☆KUUN has worn special-effects make-up. The entire transformation into Kuroo Hazama took about two hours. The staff had a hard time recreating the skin in a way that looked realistic. In the music video below, the singer remarked that on top of the make-up (which appears in the latter half) he also got a leg cramp because of the way he had to stand for most of the video. UMI☆KUUN appears in a white, narrow room with a low ceiling, so he's squatting for much of the video.
The "I am Just Feeling Alive" single will go on sale on October 28. The limited edition version bundles a DVD with the track's music video. A second song, "HELLO BABY" which served as a tribute to Japan Expo is also included.
