Rock Band Man With a Mission Turns Fukumenkei Noise Manga Into Music Video

"One-sided love" story by Nosatsu Junkie's Ryoko Fukuyama gets live-action video

MAN WITH A MISSION, the five-member rock band known for wearing wolf masks during concerts, collaborated with Ryoko Fukuyama's shōjo manga Fukumenkei Noise to create a special promotional video. The video with the band's song "Feel and Think" debuted at midnight on Monday to commemorate the publication of the manga's first volume this Friday.

The manga tells a romance story with the themes of "music X One-sided love." Nino, a girl who loves singing, made a childhood promise with her first crush Momo and song-composing Yuzu to someday find her voice. The three went their separate ways, but Nino kept her promise and continued to sing. Years later, the three are now high school students, and Nino is drawn into the world of keionbu or band club.

Fukuyama launched the manga Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in April. The creator is known for her shōjo comedy, Nosatsu Junkie, which was published in English by Tokyopop. Nosatsu Junkie ended its serialization in Hana to Yume in 2008.
