Make Your Own Manga of Pop Group Perfume
posted on by Joanne Mertz
Popular pop group Perfume opened a special website where users can create their own comics featuring the band members and their new single "Mirai no Museum."
The song's music video centers around a character named "Shōnen P-ta" and Perfume — reimagined as three humanoid robots from the future. On the website, users write their own lines into four panels of the comic for P-ta and the three Perfume members. For the fifth panel, the computer will automatically analyze the data put into the text boxes to create the last scene, using real footage of the girls from the music video. Users can also login into their Facebook or Twitter accounts to see data previously submitted by other users.
Perfume's new single will arrive in Japan on February 27 as the theme song to the latest Doraemon film, Doraemon: Nobita no Himitsu Dōgu Museum. The single will then arrive in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and China on March 9, with the original lyrics translated into Chinese.
