The musical trio Perfume will appear in the local Hiroshima anime series Oshaberi Karaage Ageta-kun. The techno-pop group will first appear on the show starring a talking piece of fried chicken on Monday and will return for more episodes over the next four weeks.
Oshaberi Karaage Ageta-kun is a Hiroshima-based program. Perfume members Ayano Omoto, Yuka Kashino, and Ayaka Nishiwaki are Hiroshima natives.
The anime is set in an company office in Hiroshima. A salary man named Yamada is transferred to the company. One day he opens his lunch box and discovers his piece of fried chicken can talk, in a Hiroshima dialect no less.
Perfume is a technopop group that formed in 2000. The group released their last album Future Pop in August 2018. The group performed at the Coachella Festival in California in April, the first J-Pop group to perform at the musical festival.
The group provided the theme song "Mirai no Museum" (Museum of the Future) for the 2013 Doraemon film, Doraemon: Nobita no Himitsu Dōgu Museum. Perfume also provided the ending theme song "Hurly Burly" to Hiroyasu Ishida's "Fastening Days" anime short. A documentary film about them titled WE ARE Perfume -WORLD TOUR 3rd DOCUMENT premiered last year in various countries worldwide. Most recently, Perfume and Los Angeles-based rock band OK Go collaborated on the theme song "I Don't Understand You" for the ongoing Sushi Police television anime.
