Keyakizaka46 Embrace Their Quirks in New MV “Eccentric”

Idol group Keyakizaka46 has released a music video for their previously released song “Eccentric”.

The song “Eccentric” acts as the ending theme of their NTV mini-series mystery drama “Zankoku na Kankyakutachi” that began its run May 17.

An original concept from producer Yasushi Akimoto, “Zankoku na Kankyakutachi” is set in the near future where 21 female senior high school students find themselves confined to their classroom, and the only way out is to earn the approval from the audience tuning in to the real-time feed of their classroom.

The video itself is an extension of the series, with the group members wearing the same costumes they wear in the drama. Scenes take on the school setting amidst a storm in a variety of situations—having the members in the school gymnasium surrounded by stacked desks, dancing in sequences similar to “sankai juku”, in the classroom spinning their shoe around their finger, and dancing freely as the rain falls down on them.

Eccentric” is a coupling song from Keyakizaka46’s 4th single “Fukyouwaon” released on April 5, and will be included in their 1st album “Masshirona Mono wa Yogoshitaku Naru” due out July 19.
