Sayuri just released the new MV (short version) for the ending theme of Winter 2017 anime Kuzu no Honkai. The song is called Heikousen (Parallel Lines) and it’s the fifth single of the popular singer-songwriter.
The storyboards for the video were created from original author Mengo Yokoyari. The author is involved in both the anime and the live action adaptation, and she drew the boards inspired by Sayuri and the song.
The video is as melancholic as the song. Kuzu no Honkai is a story about people who want to mix, who want to be ‘normal’ whatever that means, but are not able to. It’s about people who live in a parallel world and watch things unfold through their own personal kaleidoscopes. Sayuri is on the other side of the mirror, singing about the distortion that we find in our own lives.
The video may not yet be available to your country. We will update the article as soon as we find an alternative source!
Sayuri is a Japanese pop singer and songwriter, affiliated with Yamaha Music after her win at the Grand Prix finals of the fifth Music Revolution. She began composing music since high-school and she has released 5 singles so far.
This is not her first anime theme song. She sang the ending theme for ERASED and both performed and composed the ending theme for Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace.
