posted on by Egan Loo
Lantis, the music label of the Bandai Namco Group, has posted a six-minute music video for "Yasashii Bōkyaku," Minori Chihara's theme song for The Vanishment of Haruhi Suzumiya film on the YouTube website. The video does not contain actual anime footage. The Kyoto Animation film, in which chief director Tatsuya Ishihara and director Yasuhiro Takemoto adapt the fourth Haruhi Suzumiya light novel from Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Ito, will open in Japan on February 6. Bandai Entertainment, the North American distributor of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya television anime series, posted a video on Monday that mentioned the promotion of "the second season DVDs."
The media publisher Tokuma Japan has also posted a 40-second music video excerpt for the "Tsubasa o Kudasai" song by Beckii Cruel, the British girl who rose to Internet fame in Japan by dancing to anime songs in net videos. The "Beckii Cruel feat. Cruel Angels" musical act includes a French female college student named "Sara Cruel" and a British female high school student named "Gemma Cruel." Tokuma Japan will release the song's CD on February 10. In addition, Beckii Cruel will be on the cover of this year's 10th issue of Akita Shoten's Weekly Shonen Champion magazine, which ships on February 4.
