Tiger Lab Vinyl is proud to announce the launch of PERFECT BLUE. Well over a year in the making, Tiger Lab Vinyl and Madhouse Production Studios teamed up to present Masahiro Ikumi's original score to the classic 1997 psychological thriller on vinyl for the first time ever.
The Perfect Blue was the director debut for Kon, who went to make Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent and Paprika before his death in 2010. Set in contemporary Tokyo, the story concerns a pop singer, Mima, who tries to develop an acting career, only to experience threats and traumas as her mind breaks down and she is tormented by a ghostly version of her singer self.
