Mackenyu Arata & Takumi Kitamura are gearing up for the release of their upcoming film “Our 30 Minute Sessions” (Sayonara made no 30 pun).
The film follows the two main characters Aki Miyata (Mackenyu) and Sota Kubota (Takumi Kitamura). Aki is the lead singer of the band ECHOLL, he has a very bright and outgoing personality, besides his talent.
Unfortunately, he tragically dies before his band can ever really make it big. Sota is a university student who is quite shy and anti-social. One day he comes across a cassette tape that was recorded by Aki, and upon playing the tape Aki’s spirit takes over Sota’s body.
Aki is able to take over Sota’s body for only 30 minutes, in that short amount of time Sota goes to visit Kana (Sayu Kubota) who is Aki’s former bandmate and girlfriend. He also has a reunion with the other 3 ECHOLL members.
Both Mackenyu and Takumi sing the theme to film, titled “Never Again” (Monidoto). Clips from the film can be seen in the online MV version. Check it out below!
Lyrics and music were provided by ame no parade’s Kohei Fukunaga, and androp’s Takahito Uchisawa did the arrangement.
“Our 30 Minute Sessions” will be released nationwide in Japan on January 24th, 2020.
