‘One Last Kiss’ by Hikaru Utada, her music video created by Hideaki Anno was received with great praise from the fans!! YouTube Premiere was a great success!
The Long awaited ‘One Last Kiss’ will be released as a theme song for the film ‘Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time.’ on Wednesday the 10th of March. Fans who heard the music earlier with advanced streaming from Tuesday the 9th of March are commenting with excitement as “THIS IS THE FIRST BEAUTIFUL THING WE HAVE GOT SO FAR FROM 2021. TOTALLY WORTH WAITING” and “Like Eva, Hikki has come a long way and into the hearts and lives of many. Thank you for the wonderful music and I pray for more good years ahead :)”.
The music video of ‘One Last Kiss’ was directed by Hideaki Anno who is the author, screenwriter, and director of the film ‘Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice upon a Time.’. This video was released on Tuesday the 9th of March at midnight, the same time as the song was released. The collaboration that has finally come to fruition with the conclusion of the “Evangelion: New Theatrical Edition” series has received rave reviews from fans of both Hikaru Utada and Evangelion, and has already garnered 200,000 views in just 30 minutes since its premiere.
After accepting Hikaru Utada’s offer to make a music video, Mr. Anno proposed her to send the material shot by Hikaru herself without any on-site direction, and then he cut it up and joined it together to make a work. After receiving minimal orders from Mr. Anno via e-mail, such as looking at the camera and lip-syncing, Hikaru Utada took meticulous measures to prevent Corona infection and shot the film in the suburbs of London with a few staff members. The film was edited in Japan by Mr. Anno and his team, who received the video material shot with a variety of equipment, including smart phones. The result is a work that evokes bittersweet emotions, as if tracing an important memory from the private past. Please watch and enjoy the music video along with the film.
