Story Teller Project

Story Teller Project

I assume this has actually already been done before, but it strikes me as a clever idea: mix manga and pop.

Story Teller Project describe themselves as a “rookie masked band” whose style is “poetry reading and singing, combined with comic pictures!” The debut release, Hatsu Koi – My Aoharu Days, is a pleasant romantic ditty that features the voice of popular young actress Sakurai Hinako (22), so there’s presumably some big company and serious money behind them. But it’s all packaged very well on their official website and social media channels.

The quartet is made up of “Sentimental keyboardist” Kazekaze, “Red hair and blue-eyed vocalist” Soramaru, “Sailor blouse” DJ Umi, and “Ironic bassist” Moriyama-san.
