The official website for the upcoming anime film Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare (Love Me, Love Me Not) has released a gorgeous animated music video for the film’s theme song — Bump of Chicken’s ‘Gravity‘.
A music video that showcases a huge number of lovely scenes from the movie.
A movie that tells the story of Yuna Ichihara and her new best friend Akari Yamamoto. Two girls who have very different ways of approaching love, especially when Yuna realizes she is in love with Akari’s step-brother Rio, and Akari loves Yuna’s childhood friend Kazuomi.
Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare is directed by Toshimasa Kuroyanagi (The Great Passage) and written by Erika Yoshida (Trickster). Character design is by Yuu Yamashita (Bunny Drop).
The anime film is based on the manga series by Io Sakisaka.
Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare was originally supposed to release back in May but was delayed due to the worldwide panic over COVID-19. It will now release in Japan on Friday.
The Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare theme song — Bump of Chicken’s ‘Gravity‘ — is just one of a number of superb songs the Japanese alternative rock band has written for anime movies and TV series.
That work includes hit songs for Neon Genesis Evangelion, March Comes in Like a Lion, and Juushinki Pandora.
And, if you have always wondered why anyone would name a band Bump of Chicken, apparently the Japanese band members believed it meant ‘counterattack from the weak man’ in English.
Watch the lovely animated music video for Bump of Chickens’ ‘Gravity’ below, and then keep your fingers crossed the film hits western shores soon as it looks beautiful.
You can learn more about Bump of Chicken on the band’s official website.
