Adam by Eve: A Live in Animation, a new film featuring singer-songwriter Eve, known for his work on the opening theme song for the TV anime JUJUTSU KAISEN, will be streamed on Netflix worldwide on March 15, 2022, and will also be screened in Japanese theaters including TOHO Cinemas Ikebukuro in Tokyo.
The "music film" tells a single story that combines new songs written by Eve, a new animation footage, a live-action drama footage, and his newly shot live performance footage. Its story centers on Aki, a high school student who is searching for her best friend who has disappeared over the mysterious "Hitotsume" that appears in people's dreams.
Genki Kawamura (Your Name. producer) works on planning, Nobutaka Yoda (Godzilla Singular Point OP movie director) serves as general director, and khara (the Evangelion series) works on the production of its animation part.
"It's been two years since I couldn't perform live anymore, and it all started with the idea of finding a new way to deliver something different from live performances," Eve says. "I enjoyed the extraordinary experience of animation, live performance, CG, and story. I hope you will watch it with a fresh mind, and I hope to see you at my next live performance."
Aki, a high school student, is at a family restaurant after school with her best friend Taki. Taki tells Aki about the dream she had last night about being attacked by "Hitotsume." Taki finishes talking about her dream and leaves, saying "I'm going to the drink bar," but she never came back–. Aki wanders around Tokyo in search of Taki, who has suddenly disappeared. At the same time, many people in Tokyo start to say they have seen "Hitotsume" in their dreams. Aki also gradually wanders into a strange world created by the mysterious "Hitotsume." She is guided by Taki's voice to the fictional city of Shibuya, where she can't tell if it's a dream or reality. What does she encounter there?
