Today on its CD release day in Japan, Nippon Columbia's official YouTube channel posted a lyric video for the five-member Japanese rock band Miracle Chimpanzee's major debut single song "Mabataki" (Blink), which has been used as the OP theme for the winter 2022 TV anime Sasaki and Miyano.
The band was formed in 2013 and their sound is a mixture of funk, soul, and rock, and they deliver lyrics that are closely related to daily life." The members say of the song, "We made this song with the idea of supporting 'falling in love with someone.' We would be happy if this song could add flowers to the freshness that overflows, the anguish of school boys, and the charm of each character. We'll do our best to support your 'love'!"
