You can check out the full version of the photo shoot and the on-set report here:
The movie takes place in Tokyo in the near future where an infectious disease of unknown origin is spreading; making it no longer possible for people to live out there lives together as they once did. Most people choose to migrate to the west of Japan (the Kansai region) and to make matters worse; a meteorite is closing in on Earth. Amongst no hope of a bright future, Itsuko, a group of young girls sing of how there is still hope because they are alive and stream their performance on the Internet for all to see. Some days later Itsuko meet a mysterious girl. Sure enough, it’s a story that will have viewers questioning the fate of the world. The movie embraces dark and heavy themes; how the idols will act out these themes is something that many of us are very much looking forward to seeing!
