Well, it’s been a while since I’ve updated, but we finally have some news worth talking about!
It was announced today that Mr.Children will be providing the theme for the film “Seiten no Hekireki” (“A Bolt from the Blue”), which is based on the 2010 novel of the same name written by Hitori Gekidan. The song is titled “Hanatareru” (放たれる; Emergent – not quite sure on that translation) and is described as a mid-tempo ballad with a bright message. The method of delivery for the song has yet to be decided, but the movie will release on May 24th of this year. I’ll provide a brief preview of the song below – enjoy!

One more quick update – today, Mr.Children released their new Live DVD/Blu-ray and commemorated the occasion by uploading one more of the live performances from it. Today’s video is “Dakishimetai”, and it really sounds great. Please enjoy, and support the band by purchasing a copy if you can (and want to)!
Just a quick update – Mr.Children updated their Youtube channel again and released the live for “Happy Song” from their Tour DVD. Enjoy and comment if you want!
Today, Mr.Children uploaded the CM for their Tour DVD/Blu-ray and the rendition of “Not Found” from the Tour itself to their official Youtube channel. I’ll link the videos below, but I really like the look of this concert – seems somewhat more theatrical than what they usually do, at least for the opening.
This is fairly major news, so I figured that it was definitely worth covering. Mr.Children finally opened their own youtube channel today and with it uploaded 20 HQ PVs from across their career for worldwide viewing. Included among them is the PV for their newest release, “REM”. It’s great to see them finally take this step and I hope to see their future music videos uploaded there too, since it would be a great resource going forward. Below are the links to both the youtube channel and the REM video – enjoy!
This will most likely be a fairly quick post, but I certainly think that it’s something worth putting up here. For the first time, Mr.Children have officially published a Short PV to youtube; the Short Version of “REM” ‘s PV is up on the “Real” movie’s official youtube channel. It’s … a pretty interesting piece of work honestly, and I’m really curious to see how it ends. Let me know what you think below!
