From their digital release of December 2018, Sakura Ebis now get a promotional video for the song “Kira kira”. Reclining like rag dolls, one-by-one the girls get transported to the middle of the naked forest or empty dining halls or love seats in the middle of nowhere. The choreography of “Kira kira” strikes the eye with its herky-jerky movements and uncanny postures. More than one shot pairs the girls like the creepy twins from “The Shining”, and I’m not sure this was the desired effect. The girls come to life to eventually frolic in the sun, which brings me a sigh of relief. The costumes for “Kira kira” also strike me as unique with their sparkling details and smartly trimmed blouses. With their recent works, Sakura Ebis has become a favorite of mine in this new idol era. I haven’t watched “Kira kira” enough to decode the visual language, but the girls look great, and I already enjoy listening the song due to its release date. “Kira kira” can be yours from the digital retailers listed below.
