We finally have the new MV for the theme song of both the live-action drama and movie adaptations of Saki! The song is called Kimi ni Waltz and it will be performed by special unit Kiyosumi High Mahjong club. The band members are Saki Miyanaga (played by Minami Hamabe), Nodoka Haramura (played by Nana Asakawa), Yuki Kataoka (played by Aika Hirota), Hisa Takei (Seika Furuhata) and Mako Someya (Anna Yamada).
The MV features the five girls dressed in the Kiyosumi High School uniform and singing in what seems to be a music room. It also features a few key scenes from the drama. The series’s trademark plushie, Etopen, is showing up throughout the MV.
The CD’s release date is February 1, 2017. The bonus DVD that comes with the first edition will contain a full version of the music video as well as the production’s offstage images. Both the first and regular editions will contain the musician D-51’s song No More Cry covered by Kiyosumi High Mahjong club. The song No More Cry will be used as the movie’s ending theme song.
Saki is the story of Kiyosumi High’s Mahjong club who aim for victory at a nationwide highschool mahjong competition and their new member, Saki. The series has been serialized in Young GanGan since 2006 and the comic’s latest volume is 15.
The TV anime series ran for 3 seasons. The TV drama series is currently being broadcast via MBS, TBS.
