BUMP OF CHICKEN reveal the full version of their animated Music Video for “Answer”

Back in December we reported on the release of popular rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN’s music video for their track “Answer”.  Just this week the band finally published the full version of the PV to their Youtube channel, enabling everyone to take a full listen to the retro-inspired song.

Answer’s PV is composed almost entirely of footage from popular anime Sangatsu no Lion, for which the track served as the first opening theme.  However, the shots used have been cut together so that they pair perfectly with the song’s lyrics, creating an even deeper connection between the two pieces of media.

Read on below to find the full version of BUMP’s music video for “Answer”.

      catchy tune, will need repeated listens but the first impression is positive, I like that.

        What stood out for me about “Answer” from the very start was how well it mixes new sounds with some of the obvious influence from old-school anime themes (Hikaru no Go’s first ending, “Bokura no Bouken”, comes to mind). The result is a rather intriguing blend.

        I love the song. I actually liked it right from the start, I didn’t even realize it was a 5-minute video.
        What I like the most is how the song flows really well, the chorus just blends in with the other verses and it doesn’t sound repetitive. It’s great!
