Last year, LMYK – a talented female singer, suddenly appeared with the song “Unity” – the theme for the Japanese dubbed version of “The Legend of Hei” movie.
Now, her new song “0 (zero)” has been selected as the ending theme for the TV anime “The Case Study of Vanitas” which is based on the latest work by Jun Mochizuki, the author of the popular manga “PandoraHearts” that sold over 5.5 million copies. Finally, today, the digital version of the ending theme “0 (zero)” has been released! Fans who watch the anime and have been waiting for the song, showed excitement and commented thoughts on social media, “When this song was first released, it stuck with me from the first time I heard it, and I was really looking forward to listening to the full version”.

To coincide with today’s digital release of “0 (zero)”, the Japanese version music video and the English version video will be released simultaneously! The song has different lyrics for the Japanese version and English version just for this anime. When the anime is distributed internationally, a new attempt will be made to use the English version in English-speaking regions.
It is unusual for two music videos to be released simultaneously. They were directed by the up-and-coming filmmaker Soh Ideuchi. He captures the world of the song and the artist from a unique perspective, making a creation that can be called a visual poem.
The TV anime “The Case Study of Vanitas” non-credit ending movie revealed in advance already received over 500,000 views on YouTube with enthusiastic comments domestically and internationally, which makes us look forward to the reactions to the videos released today.
