Oricon style article regarding "Dr." Pv

Oricon Style published an article regarding the upcoming "Dr." promotion video. The video will be a full animation video directed by Junpei Mizusaki. Namie also chose a topnotch animation studio who spent one month making the video. The producer of the song himself, Nao'ymt, made additional sound effects for the video.



The video's main message is world peace that crosses over time and space. It takes place on a ruined Earth, in year 3000. The folly of mankind caused the destruction of the environment and mass slaughters. Namie is in stasis and is waked up by Dr. Chronos (the greek god, master of time), to deliver a message from the future to the present mankind. The experiment sends Namie in year 2200 and year 2500. Namie manages to communicate her message to a young girl on the past Earth, filled with sadness and desperate people. But will she be able to change the fate of mankind?

"Dr." will be aired on Space Shower TV on 3/12.

I guess that's Namie on the right side in the third picture. Also I am sure that the dog that a girl is holding is koto lol

I'm not overly excited about it since it's animated... but I'm still happy that she is releasing something new! XD

Wow, I love stories like these. I wish Namie would be able to do it herself cuz I think that would only convey her message just that much better and I wanna see how she performs in this kind of video. But I am feeling super excited for the video.

Nice that she's doing something new, and it sounds like they worked on it a lot. Hope it's good! ^_^

I think having it live-action AND have it look well done would require a very high budget given what they're trying to portray in the PV. Otherwise, it'd look cheap and people would alas complain anyway.

So just settle that she's trying to do something creative this time.
